    What to work on? Pics included

    Hey all,
    I went on a hiking trip near Gatlinburg, TN last week w/ a couple friends and decided to take a few pictures under a waterfall to post on here. I recently got very serious about weight training and fitness in general. I was in very good shape in highschool, but after a motorcycle accident and rotator injury, I lacked the motivation.. For the last 2 months I've been consistant and I've seen some very good gains and plan on keeping it going. My main goal right now is to gain muscle. I know I have some extra fat on me to lose, but for the time being I want to build a good base. I've cleaned up my diet considerably (especially for a college student) and I do very little cardio for the time being. Please let me know what you think. I'll also try to post more pictures of different poses.
    Thanks for any input, positive or negative.
    -Ryan

    We are missing half your body here.

    You look fine in those pictures, I don't see a need to specifically train any invidual thing to "bring up".

    Haven't seen your back or legs though.

    Yeah sorry there were other hikers walking by and having 2 dudes under the waterfall shirtless and 1 dude taking pictures looked gay enough, hahaha. My legs arent terrible but they do need work. I'll try to get more pics up soon.

    haha, yeah a tan would be nice but during the winter in Chicago its tough since I dont have the $$$ to pay for tanning. Thanks for the responses so far.
    Any ideas on my bodyfat percentage? I know by these pictures its hard to tell but maybe a general range?

    You look great. Big and fairly cut...

    Maybe some mass on the chest?

    Looks reasonably well proportioned to me. Pretty big arms I would say.

    You look fabulous, you just need a little more lats and chest..... and maybe you can go the rock star route and stuff a sock down there, that would complete your look.
