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.
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?
I think your back could do with abit more width. IMO the Upper Lats should really pop out when hitting a front double-bi so to support your arms and bring out a strong V-taper, contrasting your broadness with the minimising of your waist. As for Chest, Arnold insisted that it shouldnt dissappear (primarily the lower pecs above the ribs) when hitting a front double-bi. I for one suffer from this alittle, but not as badly as I used to. However, he was genetically gifted (he still trained it hard to get it though) in this area as well as being on lots of drugs. Looking good.
akira, thanks for throwing the photoshopping idea out there, lol. I think my traps are pretty proportional to my arms, but i'll throw up more pictures in the future to get your guys opinions. I havent been doing legs lately as much as I should, so i'll definitely work on those.
your elbows should be above your shoulders when you do the front double bicep, also it looks like your elbows are in front of your chest, you should pull them back to at least parallel with your shoulder joint. it kinda looks like your focusing too much on flexing your arms as hard as you can. try to stick out the chest and really focus on showin them lats. heres a good example of how to posture.
this is all rather irrelevant if you arent stepping on stage anytime soon though.
"When i was 15 years old, i took all of my clothes off and looked in the mirror. When i stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportioned I would need 20 inch arms to match the rest of me." -Arnold
I think that you need a decent hair cut. spend the $20 and get a good cut, it will make a huge difference. you also need a new belt. that one is tacky and cheap, dont think girls dont notice that shit cuz they do bro.
haircut and belt? lol I appreciate all of the comments but c'mon, I meant as far as the body goes, not what I was wearing to hike and camp. We were camping so I wasn't worrying about my hair or belt.. Actually I take back the belt thing, its a $40 Perry Ellis belt that I accidentally brought camping with me. I have no excuse for the haircut thing though..any suggestions? hahaha
