Give me a break. I was being honest with you. You don’t like honesty? that’s a YOU problem, not a me problem.
You weigh 160 lbs. I doubt a different camera angle or better lighting will change my opinion. You look small because you are small.
Why would you post your photos on a RATE MY PHYSIQUE forum, and then get all bent out of shape when someone doesn’t rate you well? Isn’t that the sort of criticism you’re opening yourself up to when you post photographs of your body on an open internet forum? Not only that, you said you want to be a model. If you think I’m being hard on you, you’re in for a very rude awakening. You’re clearly not mentally suited to be in an industry that is based ENTIRELY on appearance. It’s a harsh world out there buddy.
If you’re so smart, then you would know that soreness is not a reasonably good indicator of the quality of a workout. I fully believe your workouts are leaving you sore. I do NOT believe that you’re effectively building muscle with them.
Finally, I’ll address the steroid issue. I didn’t go much into this because I wasn’t sure how serious you were about it. If you already suffer from depression, then steroids are a very bad way to go. Steroid use can make depression worse, not better. The highs and lows can be very difficult for a person in a bad mental state to deal with. That’s just how it is.
Doctor-prescribed TRT and/or HTPA restart, however, is a very different thing. I do believe getting bloodwork is a very good idea. I can promise you, you DON’T want to find out you have low testosterone. There are many other problems that are easier to deal with. But that being said, if low T is the case, then you will be well served by fixing the problem with the assistance of a physician.
Congratulations on losing weight. That was a great first step, and I hope that you continue to move in the right direction. The picture below is the difference from when I was 18 until I was 30. Bodyweight difference was from 125 to 190. You’ve been at this for 1 year trying to get in better shape. It takes much more time than that, and you need to have some level of patience.
I know what I’m doing, and I’ve been doing it for quite literally more than half of your entire life. Maybe a little humility would open you up to accepting feedback more positively, rather than telling me my advice is ‘bodybuilding 101.’
