to be honest, your progress is much better than the photographs seem to show. Here are the problems:

  1. You are not lean YET.
  2. You have a very odd structure with wide hips, thick waist and narrow shoulders from a bb point of view.

Put 1 and 2 together, and you are one of the many people who should NOT pose completely relaxed when asking for a critique. If you took the time and learnt a few poses, you would look a lot better than simply standing there with everythign hanging out in a semi slouched pose - which would only work with a better structure/proportions and shredded body.

Also posing frequently will improve your frame over time, by “loosening your scapulae” etc. rotating your hips etc)

From a muscular point of view, good work. Good lat development etc…keep on keeping on. But the next time you post pics, please pose properly OR be shredded.

goal pic needs way more delt.

why is it that all those male model pics have big chests but no delts


#7

#8

Is this the first time we’ve ever seen a goal pic?


#9

As others have said, you have a good chest foundation but lack some back and lat development. May I suggestsome .deadlifts and pullups. Good Job sofar though…


#10

  1. You and I have a very similar body shape. That wide waist and those narrow shoulders are a bitch huh?

  2. Your goal physique is very attainable. Just keep at it.


#12

Ah, esk and puppypoop training! That reminds me…

The OP would do well to incorporate the weighted lat stretches on a regular basis to help widen his shoulders. Read about this and do it, I guarantee it works wonders.

im guessing most people wouldnt look at you now and assume you had lagging shoulders either.
