Pre 1st cycle pics...
"Happy Birthday old man" is what the wife said to me this morning. I'm 35 today (Feb 14, 2005) and I've started my very first cycle.
I weighed in at 205 this morning at 5'11". I'm running test cyp and EQ at 300mg each a/wk for 16 weeks.
My goal is 10-15lbs additional lean mass after PCT.
So here's what I look like today. I'll post pics April 14, 05 (midway) and at the end of the cycle mid June here in this thread.
Thanks to all the members here for providing all that one would need to know about AAS, diet and training.
Wish me luck,

Keep your diet in check and bust your ass in the gym, and you'll will be sure to reach those goals. Good luck bro.

Looks like you have a nice base to work from...lower BF. Concentrate on that chest...it needs the most work. Legs look solid.

Ahhhhh, I knew the chest would get the thumbs down. It's been a weak spot forever. I am going at it now with an entirely different approach, doing some static stops, partial reps and lightening the weight up. I'm really trying to isolate now. I think I have gone to heavy for too long and my delts and lats have been taking up the weight...
Anyway, thanks for the replies. Here's what I ate today. Not perfect, but I'm working on it.
1. 1 cup of oats, 2 cups skim milk. Tablespoon brown sugar
2. Sweet potato, ABB Extreme Body RTD 50 Monster Shake
3. 2 servings of "ON" Natural whey with 60g dextrose, 1 banana
4. 2 cups fat free cottage cheese
5. 16 oz's skinless chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli
6. 2 Tbsp Natural PB, 6oz tuna
Snack 1/4 cup almonds

Lats and delts taking away from chest excercises? I would hit it heavy with flat bench, incline dumbell press and pec dec, 5-8 reps HEAVY!

I've always done staple exercises heavy. Nothing new. But yes, in going a little lighter preparing joints for this cycle, I seem to have realized (or maybe I'm straight up out of my **** mind) that I'm putting my back and front shoulder into the push. Not too dramatic, but I'm trying to look at bio-mechanical rather than genetic reasoning for my chest looking like a bird's...
May seem counterintuitive, but I'm going to play with this one.

Arms and traps not bad...
Legs could use some serious work.
Not a bad base.

Some are biomechanical reallignments..stuff like pinning the shoulders back ..adjusting the bench angle etc.
You could try doing isolation movements first...i.e. flyes. Only, don't treat it like an isolation movement...rather... incorporate forced reps ..and heavy negatives. Followed by pressing movements. I use this 'trick' for both shoulders and chest...Found it rather effective. This and low-incline barbell presses...

You look good- just a bit more work on the chest. If you find yourself arching you back during flat bench try putting your feet up on the bench and lift instead of on the floor- works for me and it keeps your back down flat. Good luck-

your look good for 35
Hey, incase you didnt know there is this thing called color film. it might be before your time old man, but you should invest in that. you can find it at your local store.

Dont know if I believe him though. Plus, going in that place with all them dam wild haired kids, buying up all that devil music, really makes me nervous.

good base, chest and back are lagging.

Stretch that chest...
I would recommend stretching chest doing deep dumbell fly's and hold for 60 sec's after chest routine. I started using that method from the dog crap training manual-it helped my chest big time!
02-17-2005, 10:52 AM #22Originally Posted by ire
Anyway, Monday I did flat dumbell presses, with partial reps at the top, after full rep failure. Burned like I've never felt before. Then I did incline cable fly's with a hold at the top, follwed by weighted dips and then flat machine presses to finish off.
3 days later it's still a little sore.
02-17-2005, 03:35 PM #23
Good luck bro.

You'll see the results. Make sure to arch back and take in a deep breath and hold the first 10-15 sec-you'll see.
