    This was at a weight of about 165-167lbs taken in June. My max weight at the time had been 173lbs while on creatine.

    These were taken in mid august after my first ph cycle. I took 1-ad for 4 weeks building up to 5 capsules per day. I gained 13 lbs and weighed 180.

    Nice work brother. And i'm talkin' about both sets of pics. Lots of determination to get as ripped as you are. Have you done any comps yet?

    If not, you should dude.

    Damn bro, you'd better get on that. Nah, I'm just kidding, but if I were you, I'd be up on stage. Good luck with your future gains.

    Thank you.
    Dietwise I pretty much keep my carbs relatively low at around 100g on most days. The exception were on the days before I would box (twice a week). I found I needed to up the carbs to 200g or else I run out of wind. Otherwise I have no problem operating and working out with only this much carbs. I consume somewhere between 180-220g of protein. The rest of my calories are from fats. I consume alot of flax seed oil. I rarely measure how much I put in my shakes but when I did it was about 2-3 tablespoons per shake and I have at least 2 per day. I eat pretty clean (by my definition) about 75% of the year.
    My routine trainingwise has pretty much stayed the same before and after I used the ph. Only chage I made was lowering the reps and going for heavier weights because I felt alot stronger on 1-ad. But I was doing only 2-3 worksets per bodypart and 2-3 exercises. Probably about 6-8 sets on the larger bodyparts. Because of a recent back injury I upped my sets and reps and timing my rest as well since I have to use lighter weights. I give priority to deltoids (especially rear delts) as well as calves. Current routine:
    Sunday- chest, biceps/ forearms
    Monday- calves, quads, delts
    Tuesday- abs, upper back
    Wdnesday- calves, hamstrings, triceps
    Friday- calves, quads, abs, rear delts
    I'm hitting quads and calves more frequently now because I can only do leg extensions and leg curls. I'm giving my lower back a few more weeks before I'll start incorporating fronts squats and deadlift variations.

    According to the calipers I use...about 7-8% year round. A few times a year though I try to get to about 5%. Not sure of their accuracy though.

    I'm 5'10" by the way.

    I have some recent shots in my new digital camera but have no way of downloading them. These shots were taken last May I believe...I do consider my delts and lower body my weak points.

    I don't really model. I have a talent agent that sends me out for auditions and go-sees. Having no talent and being abit camera shy I usually freeze up during my auditions. Still, once a year I usually still land something relatively lucrative on pure dumb luck. Haven't done any printwork though.

    I've been working out most of my life...but on and off. Probably as much on as off. After a long layoff it was 5 years ago that I started working out again and have been consistent ever since. I was 155lbs then. Probably trying to remain lean year round has slowed my progresss which amounts to less than 20lbs in 5 years before my first ph cycle.

    Thanks again for the props, everyone.

    I believe this pic was taken around 1999 within the first 6 months of workingout again. I was about 156lbs.

    His body composition is just so perfect which blows my mind, big and lean but perfectly proportionate all around. Like I said before, I'd love to look like that, but I see myself looking more bulky all around where as I rather be as slender all around.

    Again, thanks for all the props guys.
    Very much appreciated.

    My current measurements are:
    ht 5'10"
    wt 171-173lbs
    chest 44-45"
    waist 27 3/4"
    thigh(r.) 23 7/8"
    calf(r.) 16 1/4"
    arm(r.) 17 1/4"

    Unfortunately there's anywhere between 1/4-1/3" difference between left and right sides. My priority currently is to get my calves up at least another inch and would be thrilled to get my thighs to 25".

(AND, you've got the complete package, didn't skimp on the legs, etc. extremely balanced, I bow down to that ****

    Even when I wasn't working out with weights I was somewhat active hitting the heavy bag and skipping rope regularly. When I stay away from the gym I actually lose weight and just aren't as hard.
    When I first started working out again if I remember correctly I was doing a keto diet (under 20g of carbs per day) along with a HIT type routine.
