  1. The AM community physique critique thread


    Many of us would like an objective eye on our physique and some constructive criticism on how/where to improve... So here's the place to do it.

    The rules:

    - Posters: only post pics if you're ok with hearing the truth. DO NOT argue with what someone says. It's all an opinion, so deal with it.

    - Critiquers: be constructive. This doesn't mean you have to lie, but just bashing for the sake of bashing is just childish.
    - feel free to post suggested exercises and such to help

    Please quote the pic posted or tag the person who you're critiquing or replying to. With (what I hope) will be quite a few participants and judges this will help to keep things easy to read.

    Let's make this as informative and helpful as possible. I'm hoping to see some pretty good pics as well as advice. I'll be posting some pics up myself either tonight or tomorrow morning to get things rolling.

  2. I like the idea. I will participate upon getting home tonight with my starting recomp pic and current. Cut starts next week so more eyes can always help pinpoint weak areas and the criticism can help me see areas that need help and more focus

    Back has seemed to be my fav and I believe PH3 gave me a new view on thickness but my lower back still needs a ways to go.

    All in all I train more for PL and amateur show bouts but still want to see my abs at the waterside. Holding at 235lbs and I'm 6'3. Trying to continue filling out my frame best I can.

    Lookin great bro. I suggest focus on chest development to balance out those massive front delt caps. Possibly upper chest to build around the clavicle area. Great V taper also.

    Overall width is awesome. Thickness is pretty solid is well.

    As was mentioned in your thread, rear sets and upper back detail in general would really change the look there. Might even be as simple as a posture change so you hold your shoulders back more.

    Totally agree with this @TheMovement. Your taper is so crazy that it almost makes it hard to keep everything proportional ha.

    Heavy chest and definitely some traps. You're so wide up top that it's gonna be hard to get those traps to pop especially from the front.

    You pop some abs on that v though and you'll be magazine ready in no time

    Back width is definitely a need. You have a similar shape to me with fairly round muscles but length/width is a tough one. It would make you look so much bigger too.

    Hard to tell thickness with the shirt tho.

    From the front, same as me, chest could use some mass. I hold all my fat right at my nipples too so it always looks like I have no roundness and your pic looks very similar.

  17. So here's my collage, let me know if there would be a better angle or something to help. No problem with being as harsh or blunt as possible. Each collage has a flexed and relaxed for reference.
    It's been a long time since I had an objective eye:

    Thanks, I started incorporating more rear felt yesterday after it was brought up. Two days and back so I'll be trying to improve the upper thickness.

    Hmm thats for that! Ive actually always thought i had small shoulders in comparison but its something ive obsessed over. I do need to more upper chest work and am adding Incline Bb and OHP back into the routine.

    Ive done alot of carry type movements to keep them okish but I have never focused on them but def see what your saying. Will start making more of a focus on them. The abs are so going to happen! Finally!

    Thanks for the insight fellas!

    Most of these about a month old, and the angle/lighting is in my favor on some, but who DOESN'T make sure they get their good side and try to perfect the lighting?

    I'll try and follow up with some side leg shots (which are already are terribly weak, really no noticeable separation) and some with calves in them too.

    I don't have too much "honest" input. Wife is going to say I look good/bigger no matter what and my brothers think I'm the next Steve Cook...so yeah. Let me hear it all, the good, bad, and the ugly! Great idea of a thread by the way.

    EDIT: Goal is size/strength. Lowering BF% is always a secondary goal, but not my main concern at the moment. Estimated BF @ 12-ish percent, never had an accurate reading. Been holding steady @ 205-207 for a bit now. Would EVENTUALLY like to compete.

    Looking good man, only thing I would really point out is maybe work on your chest.

  23. When posting pics let us know what your goal is or what your looking or have been working towards. I suck at judging others but I cant tell who is at what BF% and if mass gain is the goal or cutting is the goal.

    You're definitely right , I've tried every "build a wider back" workout on the Internet it just dosnt come for me and the worst part is I love to hit back I look forward to back day more then some people hope for chest day , thickness comes and goes and let me point out heavy tbar rows is definitely top 5 favorite exercises for me , as far as goals , always looking to add mass and get wider up top I suffer from a long legs short torso problem . I know if I could get my back wider and thicker my overall physic would be 100% better . Chest suffers from similar problems to back I've tried everything for it but it just dosnt get the right shape

    Rear delts and lats looking solid, my dude! I'm sure with your cut coming up your erectors will come in a little better and you'll have that coveted Christmas tree look going on.
