    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.

    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

    Tuesdayff

    Wed:Back
    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)
    heavy shrugs

    Thurs: Off

    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.

    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

    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.

    Thank you for the defense. I knew people were gonna say I don't look that heavy, and I agree, I am still young and dont have that full, thick look yet. I have no reason to come on here and lie about this though. Like I said, my frame is large and carries weight very well. I am 6 foot 1 or probably closer to 6 foot 2 like I said above.

    **** 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.

    Legs

    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.
