    To Compete, or Not To Compete?


    well, from my previous thread, some suggested i should give bodybuilding competition a try after all, my competitive powerlifting career is coming closer to its end. these pics were taken today in the locker room, and i weighed in at a dry 220 at 5'10", 18 years old, ALL NATURAL.. for now.

    the flash also kind of washes out whatever vascularity/definition i do have, but oh well.

    for some reason the leg pics i took wont post hmmm. prolly cuz they're too big ( the pics... not my legs haha)

    Thanks everyone! any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd say let me see your legs before I put in any opinion. Your upper body definitely is sick bro...

    ****ty pics especially since you've got a loose shirt on ... but based on what i can see you look unreal for 18 .. keep plugging away and please please resist the temptation of gear until you are 21 or so .. your test is super high (your's probably even more so than others based on your physique) .. you've got tons of potential! get after it man

    legs need to come up a bit to match your upper body. Lower back needs a little more work. thought Id give you actual critique instead of knob slobbing.

    Wow... I must say your traps are insane big... So big in fact, they look a bit disporportionate to the rest of you... but regardless you could probably clean up in your age bracket.

    peace bro.

    i've been doing a different routine lately, slightly modified from the DC stretching routine. put on a 1/4" in the past 4 weeks. not massive but it's better than it was.

    medium weight, 15-20 slow controlled reps max set. now, use the same weight to super stretch your calves for 30 seconds. stretch them as much as possible (yeah, it hurts). after 30 seconds, pump out as many reps as you can with the same weight. do this after every set. 2nd set hurts the most for me, then they just go numb. try it and see. what's the worst it can do? keep em the same size?

    All you >200 lb. guys whining about your calves make me sick. I'm 5'10", 185 pounds @ 10%, 1 year of training. I got 18" calves --- never really done anything for 'em. I do calf raises, but mostly just FFS. Basically, it's just genetics.

    Are you jealous?

    How do you think I feel about having EFFING 14.75 INCH ARMS!? HUH? EVER THINK ABOUT THAT!?

    "Oh, geez, poor wittle ol' me. My 20 inch guns make my calves look so small! What ever shall I do?"

    Uh... stop whining about your calves because your arms are the size of my goddamn head?

    All these beefcakes and their "tiny calves anonymous" support groups, while us ectos are still trying to avoid drowning in our t-shirts. I ****in' **** my pants with joy when I hit 150 pounds. I'm looking forward to having 15" arms. You guys probably don't even remember when your arms were 15" because they never were!

    "Well, some people got good calves, some people got good arms. It's all good."

    Oh no it AIN'T! What the hell am I gonna do with a beefy set of calves and buggy whip arms? "Yeah, my arms are pretty small, but you gotta see my calves!" I couldn't even impress granmaw with that ****! And what's the first pose you do in a mirror? Front double bi? Most muscular? Ponder this --- would you rather have 14" guns or 14" calves in those poses? Hell, on stage, which would you prefer!?

    I swear... the next person who complains about their calves...





    Ha ha... only serious.

    You have great potential!

    18? You will be huge.

    I am curious about your training.
