    If your legs are really as weak as you say they are, that's all I can tell you to work on, everything else looks pretty decently proportioned.

    Ditto. Doing so will launch to the next level very quickly. I used to be the same way..all upper body training with no squats or deads. Once I started I jumped up about 20 pounds in weight.

    Gotta build the foundation before the rest of the house.

    oh yeah...and if you were my weightlifting partner, you would have no choice but to do legs...you would do them until you liked them...or until you stopped fighting me and coming up w/ stupid excuses like "i gotta throw discus tomorrow"

    Easy fellas....I think he looks pretty good for being only 18 yrs. old. I know what I was doing when I was 18, and it wasn't lifting weights.

    Good job bro, keep it up and by 20 yrs. old, you'll be something else....I only wish I could have taken advantage of that age bracket then....

    ill take some more pics towards mid week,
    but as for supplements, after i finished the bag the u helped my buy (erik) of ON whey , which was about 6 months ago, i havent gotten anything else..so im pretty much living off chicken breast and skim milk.
    ohh yeah, and ive been taking creatine on and off, but nothing more than that
    and as for the arms and the rest of the measurement, those were taken pumped.

    and i have a new PR, today i bench after almosting kickin one of my suitemate's arse, and i jumped to

    265 x 5

    all the adreanline, i guess...maybe i should pick fights more often
    but erik knows i wouldnt hurt a fly

    you have a good base dude, especially at 18.

    if i can make a recommendation it is to go to fitday.com (its free) and log in your daily food, and see where you're at on protein and calories and such. I can almost 100% tell you that chicken breast and skim milk is not nearly enough protein and by using fitday you can see what you need to increase. It should do wonders.

    oh and another thing. try to have someone else take your measurements, perferablly someone who knows what they are doing.

    Dont get me wrong, i hate to keep dwelling on this, and i'm not trying to be a dick. I mean i dont doubt you legitimately tried to take your measurements, and although they were taken pumped, a 50" chest on someone who is 5'7" looks a bit different than your pictures

    once again, not trying to be a dick, but i'd have my measurements retaken, not pumped by someone who knows what they are doing. The main reason being it is a good way to have an idea where you actually are currently and how much progress you're making.

    I'm 5'-9", same weight, the same measurements or even more.. Not a flame, but I don't feel you have a 50" chest.. Buy a MyoTape, you can measure yourself better with that..

    Looking good so far, though!

    Myotape will definitly be of assistance to ya. I dont even see 18" in your neck let alone 50" in your chest.

    I do have to say this. At 18 years old, you have built yourself a good base. I wish I had the knowledge and/or advice back when I was 18 to have trained properly. The internet was even around for the general public back then. Hell, computers hardly were too. Damn, I'm dating myself here.

    Anyways, stick with it and take the advice from those who are knowledgeable here.

    myotape is just a measuring tape which makes it easier to measure than just a tape measure. 1fast sells one here. dunno who else does

    http://www.1fast400.com/?products_id=574

    if you plan on buying one but dont have a way to measure fat i'd grab this combo. It's some fat calipers plus a myotape.

    I have that combo pack...one thing I've noticed about the Myotape is that you have to add an inch to its measurement. I dont know if I got one thats screwed up but when measuring w/ a regular tape and the myotape measurer, the myotape come up short an inch. The calipers seems pretty accurate though.

    dont worry they're all like that. i dont think it's a whole inch though. But it's very consistant!

    true but w/ some measurements i find this hard. especially when i'm taking a flexed chest measurement and such. it's hard to flex your chest and hold a tape measure, know what i mean? =D

    Thats where a paper clip comes in. The tape slides through the clip almost like a belt buckle and when you stop flexing the paper clip remains in the flex measurement spot.
    Poor mans Myotape. Got poor mans tricks for just about everything.

    465 w/ shoulder injuries. Thats a sweet bench for anyone, injured or not. Ive dislocated both of my shoulders (right one once, left one twice) in the past while playing football and wrestling, and I get nervous when I do anything over 365. I dont let it stop me but the thought of it poping out again does cross my mind.
    465lb @ 20 years old with injuries. thats something else.

    Yeah, I must agree with phenom about your stats. I'm 5 inches taller, 30 lbs heavier and those are my stats without being pumped except I can't button my 18 1/2 collar on my dress shirts. But with those stats you should be putting 295 x 6. Maybe you just measured wrong or maybe your just one of those guys that tell the girls your hung like a horse too....LOL jk........YO phenom I've only seen 2 peeps like you pusing that kind of weight, question, "how much do you weigh?"

    yea its my right shoulder, and its a bi*CH but after next season im going for surgury(date will be set after my mri on summer break), i could have taken state this year for disc but my coach was wondering where i was loosing my power(i keep my righ elbow slightly bent so i dont extend and dislocate) i only feel it when im fully extended in military, and certain tri excercises and i stay away from cleans, but i do deadlift.

As for you hitting 120lbs bumbell presses no ,not if your only hitting 245 flat bench. I flat bench 365 for 6 reps clean and i have to struggle with 120's sorry bro im not flaming you ,but your measurements dont match the pics. 50 inch chest?

    Gee, from all the boards you frequent, I would think you'd know that I "meant something" by it.

    I don't care what boards you frequent, or how long you've been at this game. Don't come to THIS board and start ripping guys' result pics as your first post, got it???

    That doesn't show much of yourself. Now, play nice.....
