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.

not being a dick...but you sure those are 18" arms or is that fully pumped?
i agree w/ everyone else on the wheels

I was going to make the same comment earlier...I just didn't want to be the first one to be a dick. LOLOriginally Posted by JonBlaze639

i must agree...i dont believe you on the 18" arms...definately not 18" cold...let's see a tape measure pic dex...

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!
04-27-2004, 04:30 PM
Myotape will definitly be of assistance to ya. I dont even see 18" in your neck let alone 50" in your chest.
04-28-2004, 02:59 AM
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
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.
04-28-2004, 04:05 PM
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.
04-28-2004, 04:11 PM
Or you can just buy a fabric measureing tape from just about anywhere. There like $2 from any fabric or sewing shop.
04-28-2004, 05:12 PM
Thanx fellas, I normally use a plain 'ol tape measure but the damn thing is about to fall apart.....thats from all the measuring done from my last cutter, LOL...
04-28-2004, 06:06 PM
dont worry they're all like that. i dont think it's a whole inch though. But it's very consistant!Originally Posted by kmac6225

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? =DOriginally Posted by db682
04-28-2004, 06:57 PM
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.

i have a pretty good bench its about 465 because of shoulder injuries, and my chest is 53 inches, if your only hittin 265 for 6 or even 10 i cant see you having a 50 " chest sorrie bud but unless you post some measurement pics i dont believe you .
