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.
Fukin ripped bro, look a hell of a lot bigger then 165 in your first sets!
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.
He is from Forcedrep.com I am too. We have been trying to talk him into it forever. He doesn't even really diet down to get that ripped. I am so damn jealous.

No doubt! You should def compete. You are ripped the f**k up.
Holy Vascularity Batman.
You are one lean bro....good job!
Thanks guys. Sifu posted a link from forcedreps for me to get here. Great forum you have.
I still think I'd need alot more size to compete but I appreciate the props. My avatar by the way was taken in July.
jeez, ****ing ripped to shreds!!
Nice work socrates, clearly some dedication there. Great vascularity, veins under the lower abs, striations apparent.....sweet
I'm very impressed Socrates. Keep up the good work, and go do some comps!!
I can't belive you were only 165lbs. I remember when I was that weight, and well.. lol nothing to show but flab. Dude I'd love to know your diet and workout routine prior to the PH, your like my new motivation.. I've love to have the same composition, slender waist, and proportionate arms, chest, traps..
For a bro that is.
Looking very ripped.
How tall are u?
I'm curious as to what your BF is? I've never seen anyone so ripped!!!
Thank you.Originally Posted by Jynx
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.Originally Posted by candle25
I'm 5'10" by the way.
nice stuff, got any leg shots?
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.Originally Posted by mrfumetsu
