I plan to step on stage for the first time sometime this year, but I definitely am still far from the look.
I am tall (6'2) and narrow, with a very cylindrical look. I have big traps and narrow shoulders. My waist is tiny when viewed from the sides, but thick from the front. My quads look almost flat compared to my waist.
Think of a thinner Greg Kovacs.
How do I go about tackling this?
My goals are:
-Wider shoulders without more trap hypertrophy
-Bigger legs with any waist hypertrophy
To those who are going to reccomend lat work, I have a very good (imho) lat spread, and look decent when viewed from the back. The front view is my problem, I look very flat. The thick waist and big traps are my main problem.
I have already quit deadlifting, but I wonder if heavy back squatting is also making my waist thicker.
