I’m still confused. What are you looking for? As in, what look? When I hear “Hollywood” I think muscles and brawn not Edward from twilight, but that may be the disconnect. From the compounds you’re listing, it sounds like you need to be lean, hard and thin; not “bulky”. Is that about right?
None of us here were at that audition so to say the guy was shorter and weighed less doesn’t mean much; especially if you’re saying the weight doesn’t matter. I know a lot of yoked wrestlers who look diesel at 145 if there’s no one standing next to them, and some Ichabod Crane looking fools who deadlift close to 700. There are lots of roles in Hollywood. Who’s someone you think you need to look like and what frame are you working with now?
I really think what you’re after, if it’s not just a look for one day, can be achieved with any compound out there and is much more dependent on your training and diet. You sound like you’re on the right track, but this may be a case for a paid consultation with someone who knows their shit.
I’m not that guy for sure, but my advice for training: start by thinking of your ideal physique. Consider what “athlete” that looks like and train like that athlete to a T. If it’s a Lance Armstrong type and your MCL is fucked than you may be SOL; though there’s always starvation. If this guy managed to look more muscular at 5’8" 165lbs, then you may just have the wrong frame for that ideal. Vanity work: arms and chest for the lover-look; traps, shoulders, neck for the shit-kicker look.[/quote]
In all fairness, this is not about my wanting advice on anything but alterations to what was proposed in the original article as they apply to diet and training.
In terms of an “ideal” or who do I want to look like - that isnt the issue either. You say “lean hard and thin” - what is your definition of “thin”?
If I had to compare my frame(skeletal and proportions) with someone, I would say Hugh Jackman, but I have a bit more muscularity.
This isn’t a one day shoot sort of a thing either. It’s the lead in an Indie. My role is that of a father, who’s wife passed away, and is now caring for his daughter. The town gossips about how he never dated after his wife died. The women in the town swoon over the character.
