physique critique

  1. physique critique


    hey guys im new to this forum so i was looking to get some opinions on areas that i should concentrate on/ pay more attention to. heres my story.....

    joined the military 3 years ago, 6'2 tall weighing in at 160/165 ( somewhere around there) and starting lifting soon after. now im at 205 and my goal is to reach 220 by december of next year when i get out. just looking for a few thoughts on what i need to work on.

    i currently eat pretty much whatever ( with the exception of things that are just crap) and lift about 3 times a week due to my current schedule. i usually lift 5-6 times a week but i am on deployment right now. i dont really do much cardio... i hate it. i am a rescue swimmer so i get some in every once in a while. my gym's dumbells only go up to 100 and we only have a smith machine for bench so we have to make the best of it.

    *Edit-i added a pic from before i started lifting



    thanks a lot

  3. Buddy you look solid, there are no leg pics tho. Id say you have great proportions, could bring up your middle back and possibly medial delts but your proportions are better than mine. Great work!

  4. you could bring up your shoulders some. everything, overall though, looks solid. by the way, how do you feel about those star tattoos you have there? do they mean anything to you? and are you of latin descent? just wondering why people get the tattoos the get. hopefully, they have a meaning. i hate it when people get tattoos just to look tough. "If you want peace, prepare for war."

  5. i like the stars, they reference nautical navigation and being that im in the navy they were one of the first things that came to mind... I am not of latin descent but the chest tattoo is just a part of my beliefs on our military standings right now...

  6. lookin good.
    but work on getting your face untwisted.

    see, i went fishing for meanings and got em'. they're some good markings, man.
  8. thanks


    thanks for the rep..... i will post leg pics a.s.a.p. but i figured i might ask this while im at it so i dont have to start a new thread, a friend of mine recommended i force's 1,4 AD bold 22 and i was just wondering if you guys had any opinions on the stuff.... like i said im trying to reach 220 within 1 year from now... i dont take any supplements right now but i am interested in starting a cycle of something

  9. your grill is fukked!

  11. just keep doing what you're doing, get into some decent pulldown movements for your back (chins or pulldowns), hit some dumbells for your shoulder presses (arnold presses would be great) and some incline work for the upper chest.

    keep up the good work

    great photoshop skills on your face but the twisted look freaked me out a bit, looked a bit too mongoloid, i'd suggest a blur effect, easier on the eye.

  12. cool tattoo, solid looking. I would do more work for lats and add in some lateral raises. your thickness is good, I think width should become a focus.

  13. hit some deads... your erectors look non-existant, but could be the pics

    upper back looks good... lats could use a lil work too

  14. never mind your body get that face looked at!

  15. I agree with somone who posted above about your lats..definitely needs some work...overall very nice.. cheers..

  16. Same, lats, or lack thereof, stood out. But you have a great lean build! Keep up the good work!!!
    Think training's hard,. try losing!
  17. thanks


    thanks for the help guys.... i know i need to increase my back lifts and thats something ill start on soon.... my dead lifts arent terrible (usually i do 315 10 reps 2-3 sets and every once in a while ill pull up 405 a couple times).

    i guess ill start some more intense pulldown/pull-up routines soon...

  18. i would say if anything back width throw in some lat pulldowns or some pullups to really hit them. also perhaps some shoulders maybe a little idk so latteral raises or suttin idk what do i kno just some ideas for you but you look like your pretty solid and commited congrats

  19. Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum my brother... got it inked on my rib cage!

    Lookin solid tho!

  20. nice build!!! keep at it. btw nice turbo. what kind of car do u drive? and why the internal wastegate?
  21. ....


    thanks man... its a gt3071r that i had with my sr20'd 240.... no longer have it though... when i get back off deployment i plan on getting either an s2000 or a newer trans am. two totally different cars i know but thats what i have my sights on lol..... I was running an internal wastegate because i still had the stock manifold on it.

  22. Where did you attend Aviation Rescue school at?

    Pull-ups; they do a body good.

  23. looks good overvall. just add more mass.. and chins and yates rows.. can we trade delts?
