Side shots are so hard to do by yourself I discovered.

There is ALWAYS room for improvement. I will NEVER be happy. The leaner / stronger I get the more I crave for more.
Wait until AA is gone and I switch to eviscerate! I will look competition ready!

Posting for my own records (that's why I started this thread).
Completely unflexed and flexed pictures. After a huge carb up and TTA is having me a bit bloated
Still need to get that lower ab fat to go away.
Weight 178 this morning. 183 tonight for the pics. ( haha about a 10pm glycogen load?
Set lots of recent PRs this week as well.
48 inch box jump for sets of 4,3,3,1 my PR was once ( I mis measured and didnt realize how High it was until the 3rd set. That helped mentally a lot I think).
-3 board flat bench press 355
-Banded dead lift. 435 at the bottom and about 545 at the top (this does not mean I can dl 545)
-80lb dumbbell snatches for sets of 5(super set with DL after the PR I dropped back down a bit for the SS)
Notes: love the strength from the carb up hate the bloat... Needed to happen fat loss was stalling. Low carb for me is still 100g - 160g and I carb cycle. This week is 250g all week.

Pre gym fasted pics flexed and unflexed. Still bloated but much better. Also bloat will go away and this weeks diet has been very easy.
Notes:I can see separation unflexed and lower veins. The extra scale weight will make going back into a defect mentally easier as I would not drop below 170. ( I am coming down from 200 ish).
Side notes: energy and endurance is great.

Work didn't allow for work outs this past week. Back in the gym today. Felt strong still look lean.

This doesn't count the meals in the fridge.

I hope this works if not http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GchsR...ature=youtu.be
This is my last set... I worked up to 105 for 1 each arm. then back to 95 x 3 of 3... I didnt want to do that many but the person taking the video kept messing up. This was my 6th working set...
06-14-2012, 02:25 PM
Dang... One-armed snatches are no joke, especially with a BB.
Looking a little chubby, too.

Let me shave the rug off I'll look lean. The hair is nice during a bulk it makes me look more cut. But when im lean it hides the lines...
I had more weight before that but the guy messed up the video and I was not able to repeat that set. My goal is 135 soon.

Unhappy with my bench lately so I am switching to speed training for a bit. Today I basically did 10-15 working sets speed bench with various weight, chains, and Bands.
In between sets I let my ADHD roll and would just do random exercises. Lots of rows holding at the chest, yolk walks, box jumps, push/pull the sled. Stretching.
Added some updated pics so I can keep comparing them to past progress pictures. Weight fasted am 176
On a side note pulled 450 DL raw grip (chalk) after squats Monday. That's a PR for raw grip. Then failed at 425 after.... Again I did 6 working ATG sets of squats first.

Manual labor is no joke!

Been a while since I had a good update. This is from last thursdays work out.
Power snatches PR!!! 195
Summer is almost over, I dont gain fat easily so I will most likley start to add calories slowly. My overall goal is to stay same bf% and get to 190. I was there before I got injured and I am hoping muscle memory help! My training has kept my strength very respectable to where I was even 200+ Now that I go to my new gym, The only problem is affording the food it takes for me to gain clean weight...

Honestly don't know how you could improve where you're at haha
07-24-2012, 05:45 PM
Bigger, faster, and stronger! Appreciate the support my friend!
07-24-2012, 06:25 PM
Looking diesel man. Great progress so far, but keep on the grind.
O and Oly Lifts are definitely legit.
07-24-2012, 08:31 PM
Thanks! I weight about the same as when I started working out 8-9 years ago...
I bulked for the first years but not to dirty, then dirty bulked. That put me at around 210. Then I cut to around 180ish. I stopped yoyo dieting and now I try to make slow consistent quality progress. Staying fairly lean. Cutting 30lbs sucked. It took 6-7 months of hard dieting. I would rather just avoid that situation. Oh and lost TONS of strength-size in the process...

New DL PR today 365+ 2" wide bands on each side
No idea how much those resist, but I failed every past attempt at it.

First of all I'm not even on page two but damn congrats u are beautiful lol no homoeroticism there keep it up, I am trying for lean and strong too and just started a log/run and am gonna Try to adopt some of your training/dieting methods. So I'll be on this thread often.
07-26-2012, 02:01 PM
^ yupp he's got the best of both worlds right now. Strong but also cut as hell. A great balance of the two is my ultimate goal as well
07-26-2012, 02:09 PM
Finished reading, keep the log up, they are self motivating, and make you want to be stronger and leaner
07-26-2012, 02:19 PM
Cardio is huge on abs too, and you do huge cardio 5k isn't something anybody on here can proudly say they do as their cardio session
07-26-2012, 03:58 PM
Kickin ass man!
That's why I dig AM - wanna learn about getting shredded - there's some prime examples around here
07-26-2012, 05:33 PM
Appreciate the support! I will always answer any questions, and be happy to do so.
IMO typical body building is out dated (especially for us natty guys). I dislike low carb diets, do whole body work outs, and listen to my body. I have trained with plenty "unnaturals" I respect every ones decision as long as mine is respected as well. I am much smaller than SOME OF THEM, but almost as strong, and pound per pound I am much stronger. Work ethic goes a long way. But in all fairness I am miles behind many, I just want to see what I can get my body to accomplish.
5k is only like 3.5miles. Personally good music, loud in the head phones, and a special herbal medication make a 5k pass like an... Herbal medication.
07-26-2012, 06:41 PM
That's awesome I have that herbal medication too that's how I've been able to get myself to an easy mile... Well not because of it but because of going to the gym afterwards and just focusing and pounding it out and then treadmill afterwards, 3 months ago I couldn't run a straight mile but now I can kill it
07-26-2012, 07:05 PM
First post, saw this thread first and I'm really impressed .. The amount you can lift for that size is amazing keep it up!
Questions on your cardio.. How often do you do the 5K? Do you believe in losing muscle from cardio?
