A couple pics
Just learned how to shrink pics and thought I would post a few up from a few months ago. I do not have any leg shots b/c of the height of the mirror and I was taking my own pics, but they are actrually a strong point in weight and strength, although I do not think they have great shape. Like I said this was a few months ago and I believe I weighed about 230-232 lbs. I now weigh 246 as of today. BTW, I am 6 foot 1 or 2 and 20 yrs old. What you think my BF is??
P.S. I am sorry for them being blurry but I am not the best photographer, and I think the reason they are blurry when you click on them is b/c they are made to be smaller images but they come up a little larger than they should when you click on them. The smaller images seem to be the true one.

WOW...keep it up! Post more info on diet and routine.

I usually train 4 days a week, but right now I am eating a lot more cals and lifting about 5X per week. Right now my routine is:
Sunday: Quads and hams (currently doing swole leg workout he posted and I have made substantial strength increases, I train legs harder than anything else and I really wish I had some picks to post of them) I have gone from 185lbs for 19 reps on squats to 275 for 20 reps on squats with this workout, in 4 weeks,,,thanks swole)
Monday: Shoulders and tris
4 heavy sets of shoulder presses
3-4 sets uprigth rows
3 light sets of different kind of shoulders press supersetted with rear delt DB reverse flies
and 3 sets of lateral raises (i do a lot for shoulders)
Tris: 4 sets close grip, 3 sets rope push down, 3 sets 1 arm DB extension over the head
4 sets dead (heavy, usually go with about 455lbs for 3-5 reps at the end)
3 sets wide lat pull downs
3 sets close grip pullups
4 sets bent over barbell rows
3-4 sets 1 arm DB rows (using very strick form and squezzing at peak contraction)
Fri:Bis/ hams/ calves/traps
4 sets straight leg deadlifts
4-5 sets leg curls
3 sets of DB hammer curls
3 sets barbell curls (very strict form and about 8 reps)
4 sets eated calf raises
4 sets either leg press calf raises or standing Switch off between high 20-25 reps and low 10-15 reps
2 exercise withs about 3-4 sets for traps (darbell behind back and DB shrugs)
Sat: CHest Abs:
4 sets incline DB bench (4-8 reps)
4 sets flat bench of dumbell same
2-3 sets decline
3 sets incline flies ( sometimes I start out with these)
I usually train pretty heavy, except for some of the smaller parts like arms. I like to keep strict form and get a good squeeze, although I do cheat on certain sets. ANd I always train to failure, I like to fry the muscle group I am working. I rarely do cardio, but when I do, I usually do about 20 min on the stair master or incline treadmil @ 70% of MHR 3 times a week after workout, although I need to start doing it seperately from my weights b/c I feel it hinders muscle gain when I do it after wieght training.

Here is what a day of eating look sliek for me:
Meal#1 8:15am: 40g protein shake and a gatorade
#2, 9:00: eggwhite omelete w/ mushrooms and cheese, 1 pancake, big bowl of grits, and apple with peanut butter
#3, 10:15: about 8 oz of pork loin, broccoli, and 1.5 cups brown rice
#4, 12:15: 6 oz roast beef, a bunch of taco salad w/ meat and beans, 1 cup brown rice, broccoli
#5, 1:45: Muscle milk shake made w/ milk, 1 cup yogurt, 1 scoop protein, 1 cup oatmeal
#6, 4:00ish: 3 pork chops & 6 oz roast beef, 1 cup rice, and brocolli
#7 6-6:30: 40oz high protein smoothie from smoothie king w/ 60g protein and 90g carbs
#8, 8:30: 2 grilled turkey and cheese sandwhiches made on a grilled cheese maker...yum, even makes them in triangles LOL
#9, 10:30pm: 10 eggwhites and 2 cups of raisin bran w/ 2 cups of milk
#10, 12:30-1ish: 1.5 cups cottage cheese and 1 cup yogurt
I am obviously bulking. Weighing in about 246lbs right now, BTW, usually a lot of the roast beef and pork would be substituted with chicken or fish, but I didn't have much of a choice today, and about 9 caps of flax were thrown in throughout the day as well. How much cals/pro/fat/carbs do you guys estimate this to be at? I suck with that stuff. I don't really count cals, I just make sure I am getting in a lot of protein and that is the only thing I really watch, oh and I make sure I get even more carbs. I can say diet is not my forte, b/c I have always been a hard gainer, that is why I eat so **** much, and I have never had to really diet yet b/c of this, although I plan on cutting about 20-30lbs of fat this summer for my sisters wedding. I get really sick of it, but I credit every last bit of my size to my diet b/c I don't think many of you woudl understand how much of a hardgainer I was. I started training at 15 yrs old at about 145-155lbs. So I have nearly put on 100lbs in 5 years. Although, I am not as lean, I do have a lot more muscle.
BTW, thanks so much for all the feedback and criticism, I really didn't think people woudl be impressed at all with my physique. I thought I looked big in these pics and then I posted them up and was like da*n I am kinda small, especially now since the pictures got warped to a bigger size. But I guess I am actually about 14lbs heavier now. But I still feel small.

My guess on the bf is around 14-15% in those pics
01-31-2005, 10:04 PM #10
You really think it is that high? I was thining maybe more like 12%, but you may be right, oh well, like I said I am cutting hardcore this summer. I will need some help on my diet when the time comes.

Yea I am gonna have to start using that. Thanks for the link. I just need to not be so lazy, I am very busy with school and such though, it is kinda hard to count up my cals everyday, but I guess that is what it takes to get to where you want to go, it's just that I am bulking right now and by the looks of my diet I think I am getting enough cals and prot/fat/carbs, don't really care if I get extras in there. When I start cutting in June I will def. have to start using that link, Hopefully I will be a little over 250lbs by then, but we will see. thanks again bro

your 246? i just cant see it but pics can play tricks on the mind. especially blurry ones like yours. but you look good and id say your bf% is around 11% maybe 10%. cant bee too sure tho with the pics being blurry. o well, good luck with whatever feedback you may recieve. the diets is pretty nice, not bad if i say so. lata bro
02-01-2005, 08:52 AM #15
No I am not 246 right there. I am closer to about 230, these were taken a few months ago. I have a tall/long frame so therefore I carry my weight very well. Even I don't feel like I weigh this much when I look at myself, I guess I just have the frame to carry my weight well. People usually guess me to be 10-15 lbs under my weight, but I can assure you, I use 2 different scales anf they both give the same reading, it may fluctuate by 2 pounds day to day though, like everyone. I hold a lot of my weight in my ass and thighs, I will try to get some pics of them soon.

Nah, no rush bro. Either people post them or they don't, I don't ask anymore.
02-01-2005, 09:12 PM #22
**** bro, you have some big shoulders. You have the shoulders I want, and I have the arms you need, wanna trade some?
Really though, what is your shoulder workout like? My arms are massive for my size, but my shoulders are lacking.
02-07-2005, 02:21 PM #23
Here is the leg shot I promised, maybe it will justify my weight to some of you??
I know my calves are skinny, but I work the hell out of them, just have bad calf genetics, like many others I am sure. I feel my quads have some good mass to them though, although I am not happy with their shape......maybe that will change after I cut down to 215-220 this summer.
02-07-2005, 04:19 PM #24
I don't mean to hijack this thread...but can somebody give me the link to swole's leg workout (I saw it before, but don't remember where) thanks...
