A few pictures of me
hey ya'll, here's a couple of pictures of me dating back to december 2002
i'm 19 years old, ~6'1" ~175 lbs...biceps are currently around 15 1/2 inches, i don't really know my bodyfat percent, i would guesstimate it around 10% though...
i don't eat according to any strict diet, just avoid fried/processed foods, i have been taking protein for about 3 months, just started glutamine/creatine 2 days ago
my "training" isn't really anything extraordinary...i work out in my garage and currently do bench press (3 sets 215x8), move to lat pull downs (3 sets 150x10) then move to my room and do 3 X superset of 30 pushups, 50 crunches, 10 curls (30 lb dumbbell)
i'm not looking for any particular compliments or criticism, just putting em up here so you guys know a body behind the words
anyway, on with the pics
the first one is from December 16, 2002
the second one is from April 22, 2003

With time hard work a lot of food and some drugs you will look like a god. Keep up the good work. A lot comes up in life try not to let things get in the way.

Being 19 you not need any drugs, work on a good training platform and a good high protien Diet and you will continue to gain at your age with out anabolics.

lookin good man, id say it ur back hard with heavy deadlifts, and hit the traps with barbell shrugs.

biceps look great but u definitely could use some back work. a gym membership helps a lot with back and leg workouts

guess it's time to stop being such a recluse and hit some deadlifts and squats (never done a deadlift in my life)

u got same type of build as i do, do u have trouble putting on weight??

i'd say i've got a pretty average body type, with my strength being my arms and upper back, and my weaknesses being my narrow shoulders, undeveloped calves, and chest size (not strength)
in my entire life i've never been heavier than 175...my body seems to like that weight...we'll see in the coming months whether or not i'm able to put on some more clean mass

i second the deadlift comment.just make sure someone who knows what they are talking about shows you how to do them. great start.AD

okay, well i tried deadlifts today by myself in the garage...it's a little cramped in there
from what i read you're supposed to grip the bar with each hand either way at a little wider than shoulders width (which puts my arms on the outside of my legs, and my feet pretty close together), try to keep your back straight and use your legs for the majority of the lift?
i found it nearly impossible to keep my back straight because when i would go to lift up the bar would hit my knees...i did a set of 8 with 185 (maybe i tried to start with too much weight)...while it wasn't painful, i could feel pressure in my lower back and didn't want to risk injury so i stopped there
after a quick search i found these 2 videos
and saw that they have their backs nearly perpendicular to their legs...am i to assume this is the correct form?

Well, First off the videos show squats not deads. If you are asking about squats a good tip I found is to look up at about a 45 degree angle while performing them to help keep your back straight. If it's deads we're talking about, you want to start with the weight at your waist and keep your legs as straight as possible and lower the weight past your knees to the point where you feel a slight stretch in your hams and then lift back to the starting point. Another tip is to try and keep the bar as close to your legs as possible when descending and ascending, in other words don't let the bar swing out away from your body. Hope this helps, and keep up the good work...you're young and are in the prime point in your life to get into BB, so don't get into bad habits now...if you can develope good form you'll be a monster...good luck

u also might want to try some barbell rowes too for ur back.

so i hold the weight at my waist and slowly lower it while keeping my legs straight...so the pivot point is at my hips, putting most of the stress on my lower back area?
how low do i go? do i bend all the way forward forming a right angle? bring the weight all the way to the ground?
and i thought almost for sure that those were videos of a deadlift...
oops, linked the wrong vids, here are the ones i was talking about
