    I'm looking for critiques and compliments. I snapped these pics about a week into my first attempt at serious weight lifting; serious in the sense that I am working on both diet and lifting. Hopefully this will turn into something!

    Most exercises are done in a 12, 10, 8 fashion, increasing weight each set. I've been toying with another split and will post it shortly to see which gets the better response.

    You have a really good base to start out with. Make sure you focus on heavy compound movements (particularly the big 3 - squat bench and deadlift) and you should pack on mass nicely. Make sure your getting enough protein and calories to build muscle. good luck!

    you look great for starting out, hope you hulk it out, (just don't get bigger than me :P)

    Keep it, just as said above make sure your eating enough, most people these days eat 3 square meals, thats good...... good for your baby sister!!! but not for a guy who wants to add some serious muscle!
