so ive put on a bit more weight, and ive been really trying to develop my back thickness, the first pic is a month ago and the 2nd one is today does it look like my back is getting thicker?
i kno ive gained some fat too but the fat to muscle ratio isnt bad

I would say it looks slightly thicker.. What is your weight at now? Send me your back workout in a PM.. I may be able to modify it to your liking; I got my back uber thick, real quick..
02-07-2010, 10:44 PM
Hmm, saw the back outline above. Take out cable rows and add in bent over rows. Replace the pullups with weighted pullups. Deads are great. Alternate the single arm db row with T-bar rows.. That will get you a thick back mate ...

u mean switch the order of chest and leg routines? the reason i do it like that is because monday wednesday i lift at 7 am before my 1st class so i dont have very much time and my leg routine takes longer then chest routine.

Definite improvement - especially mid-back. Upper as well. Lats also showing improvement.
Keep up the good work!

If you could somehow push your chest day further away from your arms and shoulders day, it would be very beneficial to you.. Maybe make that a rest day and move the chest lift to one of the other rest days.

right now i have a break in between chest and arm day, idk what my old post said but currently my split is like this
which days would u change?
02-09-2010, 10:49 PM
I'd look into Hypertrophy Specific Training
3 Full body days a week, all based on compound movements.
I love the science behind it, makes you rethink training splits hitting muscles once a week.
The first time I used it, I putt on mass while cutting.
I know you know your stuff, I've read alot of your posts.
Where are you cals at right now?
02-10-2010, 09:11 AM
as of now my cals are around 3200 average, saturday is usually higher around 3600
monday-thursday 345 cho, 60-70 fat, 270 pro
Friday 75-100 cho, 150-185 fat, 270 pro
Saturday- 425-450 cho, 45-55 fat, 270 pro
Sunday same as Friday

Good job man, but like others said, don't be afraid of a little fat. With your body type you shouldn't have a problem getting rid of it. The more bulk you get the more weight you can do and the more muscle tearing you'll have. I wish I did a cleaner bulk, but even with all the fat I gained my strength shot up. I didn't read through the whole thread but I saw all your supplements at first. Stick to the basics and just eat like a tank. I hate adding in too many supps. Take on empty stomach, take with water, take with juice, eat with a meal, take 13 minutes after eating a slice of toast, but don't eat carbs. Blah blah blah, it all gets so complicated. Protein, vitamins, creatine, and food! and maybe an energy booster pwo to get you going.

Congrats on reaching your goal and setting the bar even higher. I remember when I was 150 wearing clothes and set a goal of 175. Then set it at 195, then 205, then 225. The nice thing about fitness, is that it has really helped me with my confidence in all aspects of my life and made me a better person. I look forward to seeing you meet 175. Glad all your hard work has paid off.
