As you can see from my pics im nowhere near the build i wish to be and so i hope this log keeps me motivated and determined to achieve the frame i want.

At present im not very defined at all, i feel my arms are lagging compared to my shoulders and so i would like to have some advice on how to overcome this ie. should i train my biceps more or lift heavier?
