Tell me how you think I'm doing. I'm 18 years old and 5' 6". I started lifting about three weeks ago and since then, I'm up from 145 to around 155. I don't have maxes because I think 1 RMs are bs. I don't have a wheels shot but give me a minute and I'll grab one.
Are you trying to say you gained 10lbs from 3 weeks of lifting? You have a solid frame and are in good shape. What sports/activities have you been doing to get you where you are today? Stick around this site, use the search function and read alot. There is a ton of information here. Good luck.
Looks like you have kept some ok size from HS. What program are you on now? Your very small right now and basically just have some decent abs. Also genetics has very little to do with his progress, its because of hard work. Keep lifting heavy and EAT. Post your diet and program for more advice-also leg shot-
Only people I consider with 'good' genetics are pro athletes and people competing and doing well in power lifting or bodybuilding. Since they are a small group who has made it to 'elite' while many people try and do much of the same stuff and don't make it.
The last time I lifted was the second half of Junior year. I am now a sophomore in college. These ARE basically my before pictures. I figure that I can sort of quantify the improvement in my appearance if I have a before rating and another rating later. I'm not sure what you're trying to insinuate with the comment about me having yet to put any work in. I stated that this is week three. I thought I was fairly straight forward with that.
I didn't mean you haven't been working hard for the last three weeks, but three years is putting work in. Which, by the way, with three years of hard work, you'll look awesome because of this base. Good luck with your training.
