Posted in here about a year ago throwin up some progress pics. Lifts are probly in the neighborhood of: Bench 300, Squat 320, Dead 400-420. I'll have a better idea when i retest my 3RM for CTs High performance mass program. Since last time I've been training with CTs principles. Diet the last few months has been mainly a carb back loading approach with the exception of a FINiBARabout an hour or 2 pre workout followed by 2 scoops Surge Workout Fuel, 2 ANACONDA, 1 MAG-10 right before and during training.
The main thing I see missing are lats... upper back in general.. traps.
If those lifts are on target, you're doing work in the gym for sure, just get pulling rather that pushing for a little while, lol. (I love training back so I'm kind of biased)
You're really lean man, what approach did you take to slim down
@ someguyy: thanks for the advice yeah i agree...I think my back is decent but does need work. Actually seeing these pics made me realize that. I think my back was better in the past and i haven't been working it as much lately since i'm doing CTs High Performance Mass program but my shoulders do feel better. I think I'll incorporate some extra eccentric less training for my back or maybe just do a specialization in a few weeks.
@ Vnation: I've pretty much always been lean from genetics and by eating healthy but i can say that carb back loading and intermittent fasting approaches seem to work very well for me. I can actually eat more "unhealthy" foods and be leaner than just eating perfect all the time if i'm backloading or doing a fasting approach. Check out dangerouslyhardcore for back loading info or leangains for intermittent fasting. I've done the MAG-10 pulse fast also and it definitely works but i dont feel like spending money on it so now if i'm going to do something like that i'd do a fast with bcaa's instead.
You're looking good, and you might look better leaner. And I agree with someguyyy, bigger traps will make your physique look a lot better. Keep it up
nice physique! I agree with the above comments, but if your benching 300 and only squatting 320 then somethings wrong.
but your in way better condition then myself.
Very solid physique. I don't see a real issue with your back (of course who couldn't use more lats), but I'm sure your posing could flare them a bit more (ie. front bicep shot).
solid physique man. Ur rear delts look great from the back. Look bigger than 5 10' @ 180 imo. thats a good thing.
Good work - nice leanness. Is that your daughter's room or something?
most everything looks good... It might be the angle of your thigh, but it seems to me like you could hit your adductors a little more (hard to tell w the angle). That could help narrow the gap with your squat and pull numbers, if that's part of your goals that is.
What're you training for?
