  1. Looking good Doug, thicker than I have ever seen you at this body fat for certain. On your side chest and biceps, don't pull your elbow back so far on your front arm, you want it more forward and to be pulling up and pressing slight forward while using your other arm to stop the movement on both plains so that it forces your biceps, front delt and both pecs to flex. That will close the gap between your biceps and your outer pec making both of them look larger. Also pull that front shoulder up. Keep the chest high then pivot at the waist without lowering the shoulder and you will see that thickness really pop.

  4. Here is a picture that demonstrates it a bit. Notice the upper part of the front arm is straight up and down from the shoulder to the elbow. When you look you can see the tension on the front delt and front pec because he is both curling his other forearm and pushing the elbow forward against his other arm that is static but contracting to keep from moving. Just think of opposing forces but all isometric.

  6. Yeah, notably this fella right here...


    Man was he an aesthetic freak of nature and science wasn't he. With Arnold his looks like it is back a little but that is because he is arching his back / lifting his ribcage so much which makes the chest look much larger.

    He's also not dropping his front shoulder, giving him a more squared look.

  8. I see what you mean about thickness though I was doing ti more or less the way the first pic was just for that reason but I had my arm out too far. I will make that correction ant still keep my thickness.

  9. nice pics for clarity, kleen
    doug - i don't want to keep harping on this, but i do think it is time to start polishing up posing
    lotta guys take this for granted, or say "ah i'll focus on that last 4 weeks"..
    trust me when i tell you - you want to have your posing dialed in NOW, it is too hard to learn proper posing in a short timeframe (let alone with everything else you will have going on at that time period)
    not criticizing, simply critiquing..but you have some srs flaws in your posing base, including leaning on the wrong leg/position of legs when posing/proper form of other bodyparts (as chris mentions)
    i can only stress to you what a posing coach can bring to the table - you cannot learn to pose yourself from a vid or online, unless you simply have natural ability in that aspect..posing is the most difficult part of this process IMO

    I was going to start practicing more this week. I will see what I can do about a posing Coach...

  11. A good coach early on is the way to go that way you are making your good poses second nature instead of working with someone the last week and trying to retrain yourself.

  12. A little catch up here, on Monday went to the gym and after every set I felt like I was going to lose my cookies, I don't know how but I got through it and made all my increases for week 5 and believe me they were significant. I don't know how I did it but made it home and couldn't figure out if I had food poisoning or the FLU and figured it must have been the latter. Diet suffered as I couldn't hold much down but used some powders to try and keep my protein up. Was in Bed all day yesterday but going to the gym this morning as I feel much better. Going to play it by ear.

    A pretty miraculous recovery if I am ok. I am looking tight despite all this. Man was my CNS ever shot, when the phone would ring I would jump 3 feet. I couldn't stand any sudden noise. Happens to me when I get the Flu and my training has really taxed it as well. My granddaughter was visiting so probably picked it up off her.

    Thought I was but I was wrong... still better than Monday didn't feel ill after each set but there were some issues, I've never felt so exhausted and the muscle pain was really intense.

    Yes I know, I was not trying to be a hero here, I thought I was recovered and Monday I didn't know that I was sick.

  20. Yeah rest up get to feeling better take at least tomorrow of from the gym no matter what you feel like. Your immune system and being sick are similar to an injury. Just because it stops hurting all the time doesn't mean it is healed. Just because you feel a little better doesn't mean you have recovered.

    Yes, what Chris said Doug. And I'll pop in here from now on since I found this you crazy old man!
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).
