I recommend lots of compound exercises.Those are the mass builders.Stay away from iso movements.You don't have the size for those yet.
Look good for 1 yr in.

I think you look well porportioned bro but like metioned by Pinnacle, do some compounds for size. You just need some time to continue to grow to your potential. Keep hitting it hard bro and you will be surprised in a couple of years what you can achieve.

looks like your traps could use some work and some core work as well. keep at it man, looks like you have a nice base going on. any cycles?

I like Arnold Schwarzeneggers view on bodybuilding, he used to advocate how the first 5 years of your training should be focused primarily on size and power, in the first 5 years you'll get the best gains and it'll pretty much be the biggest you'll get genetically w/ proper training and nutrition, then carve it up like a diamond in the rough. So w/ this in mind, compound movements bro!! Squats, deadlifts, bent over rows, heavy T-bars, bench, military press, things like this should be the core of your training.

Agreed, you have a long road ahead of you, enjoy it.

c'mon bud, show us them wheels!

not bad but would guess legs?
10-19-2005, 05:19 PM #14
What do your workouts look like now? Are you doing your deadlifts? Weighted Pull ups? Squats instead of leg press? How old are you? What is your diet honestly like? You look decent all things considered, but wont get where you want to be unless all is in order. I am sure you know what needs improvement, which is everythig at this point. Good base though. Let us know on the above questions.

Day 1 Chest and tris-bench, incline, db flys, incline db, push downs, skull chrushers
Day 2 Traps and delts- military press, db press, shurgs, db shurgs, hypulls, arm extensions
Day 3 Biceps and legs- precher curls, straight bar curls, db curls, machine curls, 21s, leg extensions, leg curl (cant go have on legs yet cause i broke my ankle about 5 months ago and therapist is affaird i might get i stress fracture if i go to heavy)
Day4 Back- overhand rows, underhand rows, lat pulldowns, pull overs, good mornings, db straight leg deadlifts
Diet: needs some work. I get plenty os protien(all i eat is meat and dairy little bit of veggys) low carbs little high on fat and soduim though

The only area i see that you need to focus on would be triceps and shoulders (delts). you may want to switch from a bodybuilding standpoint and train like a powerlifter, youll add much more mass this way.

i didnt bother reading what other people have said so im just gonna say some stuff....
eat 1.5 grams of protein per body pound, 2 grams of carbs per body pound, .5 grams of fat per body pound....squat and deadlift...you need to work on EVERYTHING...i really cant pick out a lagging body part except abs...no offense at all but when you are still that skinny your abs should be more visible...work them out as often as you can as long as they arent sore. also dont become a fatty while bulking...do your morning cardio on empy stomach at 125-130 bpm bout 3 times a week...i hope this advice helps you to become the best you can be and i honestly mean that.

kaptainkeezy04- ya the abs are quite shitty right now. but is winter now and im just trying to bulk up. Jumped from about 8-9% bf to 11% bf since the summer. Ill wait till summer till i start cutting again

yo bro, looking good for one year in...what are your stats? weight, height, etc?
11-27-2005, 07:52 PM #22Originally Posted by kaptainkeezy04
I can't pick out a lagging bodypart...and that's good. You're pretty symmetrical. Add muscle everywhere. Don't be in a hurry. Bodybuilding, as with all things worthwhile, is a long-term process.
Good work mang... Keep at it.
Ditto on the protein/carb/cardio comments.
My take on it?
Take in at least 1 gram of protein per lb of bodyweight (since you're more or less now starting we'll work with bodyweight as opposed to LBM- lean body mass)
Take in carbs at 1.5 grams per lb of bodyweight...and fat at .3 grams per lb bodyweight.
Don't neglect your cardio...don't overdo it either. Moderate cardio will help with your recovery...and keep your bodyfat down. That's a double plus in my book.
