You def. do roids. Why you gotta lie man?


Quads are looking pretty good.


Good quads


I'm guessing you said that because he stated he's natty? I'm pretty sure it was mentioned in the RMP rules thread to state if one is natty or not.


This is the only reason I mentioned it.


you sure love almonds.


Convenient source of EFA's


What makes you believe this guy uses? I see nothing physically that points towards AAS use at all. He looks natty. And im too lazy to read any log-maybe I missed something.


Pretty sure he was taking the piss, (I hope), but if he wasn't, I'm kind of dumbfounded at how someone could honestly think a 70kg male with 13" arms is on gear...lol


Jesus...it's a joke. If someone asks incredulously if a guy is "natty", it is because the guy is definitely not built enough to lead anyone to believe that they have ever taken steroids, thus making the statement orginal statement of being natural an obvious and pointless proclamation.

It's not so funny when someone has to explain it.

OP, you have an interesting physique. Most of the time you see guys with built (relatively) upper bodies and stick legs. You are somewhat the opposite. Your legs are pretty impressive, but your upper body is pretty flat by comparison to your wheels.


Don't be a douche.


When I first started training, like everyone I just wanted bigger arms/chest etc, people told me to squat, so I did. Bodyweight went from 50kg to 70kg, not much change in upperbody (despite still training bench/curls/rows etc) but my legs grew. I'm guessing(/hoping lol) in the next 10-20kg of weight gain my upperbody will start to catch up as I get stronger and can move more weight in bench?

This is what my training looks like:
Monday - PPP Squat, dumbbell curls, seated cable rows
Wednesday - PPP Bench, dumbbell curls, seated cable rows
Friday - PPP Deadlift, dumbbell curls, seated cable rows
Saturday - PPP Military Press, dumbbell curls, seated cable rows

I'm focusing on squat, bench, dead, military press which I do once a week on the Progressive Poundage Program (http://www.ptcfrankston.com/progressivepoundageprogram.html), and then after that I do 3-6 sets of dumbbell curls and 5-10 sets of seated cable rows every session to try and bring up the lagging bodyparts.
