Be gentle LOL...pics of me

I've decided to post some pics of myself after 2 years of consistent training after a long lay off..

I just *so* wish I could have posted my starting pics, the difference is substantial but unfortunately my h/disk died a while ago, losing all old pics in the process .

For the 1st time in a long time I think I look 'ok', far from where I wanna be, but acceptable to myself.

I want to get proper lean, up to now I've done practically no aerobics.

Please make suggestions on good points/bad points, I'm fine with criticism but try and be constructive .

It's a shame u cant see my legs cos they are deffo my best point. Also, the lighting was far from optimal to emphasise (sp?) my physique, will get some better soon hopefully!

Warning - Sorry for my state of undress lol!!!

    Erm, well you look in pretty good shape there mate, and very lean for no aerobics, very lean..... a little bit too much on the naked side for my liking tho but hey!!!

    What's your typical routine like then?

    Thanks for the kind comments guys :-)

    Pusha, yep 17" or maybe just a touch over, in 1998 they were a tad over 18" tho'! I was training with a national competitor at that time and learnt alot from him, apart from dedication, as I gave it up when he moved away!

    Thats a genuine 17", cold, with the tape measure tight around my arm.

    Dirtyvest, lol , I agree but I can categorically state there is no sexual overtures in the photos lol, 100% heterosexual male here mate lol!!! Never expected to post them on the net but seen others have been posting pics...

    Typical routine? Up until a few weeks ago I've been doing :

    monday - chest, shoulders, triceps
    wednesday - legs
    friday - back, biceps

    now i want to step up a gear and train similar to what i was doing a few years ago, something like this :

    monday - chest, triceps
    tues - aerobics
    weds - legs
    thu - shoulders, aerobics
    fri - back, biceps
    sat or sun - aerobics

    i've started on the bikes in the gym this week. i am really motivated to now to progress, especially after getting positive feedback.

    I am absolutely kicking myself that i lost the photos from when i started back, i was 2 or 3 stone overweight, looked fat, with no size or shape, u wouldnt believe the difference.

    These past few months i've basically followed the atkins diet principle but with loads of good quality protein and the fat as come off, and my strength hasnt suffered. I have used moderate amounts of juice but nothing stupid. I have been training hard and consistently even when i couldnt be assed!

    I reckon 3-6 months (summertime) i'll be in as good as shape as 1998.

    Thanks again for the compliments.

    Do u think I could compete???? Although a couple of people had mentioned some years ago when I was in better shape than I am now, I thought they were just being nice.

    Aren't even the entry level 1st timers really big n cut nowadays?

    If I thought I wouldn't make an a$$ of myself I'd luv to, it'd give more motivation and they'd be something to show for it rather than just looking ok in a T shirt lol

    I wish I was your size after 2 years. Your physique in these pics is what I'm aiming for, although it's taking me a lot longer.

    First timers vary widely in quality - get a copy of the beef to see what you are really going to be up against in that class.
    You will be pleasantly surprised.

    Just dont be entering the same one as me!

    Not could - should!

    As seungmena says, there is a huge range in quality. You have a great shape. A lot of amateur competitors have rubbish legs. If yours are good then that's a major advantage.

    Cool. Then get along to a competition and watch. It'll fire you up with enthusiasm and by the end you'll be thinking "I'm easily as good as those guys".

    Looking well good there mate - and all that natural too kinda the look I want.

    You look a hell of a lot bigger than you stats say.

    Get a good routine to max your obvious opious potential. polish off the trunks and your in business.

    (Very though your gay cos of the photos....however it does beg the question why are you taking these photo's?)

    Oh PS my sister would like some 10 x 8's doing if poss LOL

    [:I] thanks people, I really didn't expect such a good reaction!!!

    Garyp, this is 2 years of consistent training but i started about 10yrs ago...out of them i've trained about 5 .

    Seungmena, I think i'll do that, I've never read Beef but heard about it, where can u get it from. By the way I've been following ure thread and ure progress, well done! Ure physique is deffo coming on...just a bit pi$$ed off about losing my beginning foto's....ures r gonna be a big help to you.

    Angel, [:I][:p], fanx huni, I'm gonna get a big head here lol!! ps did i tell u i'm single hehe?

    LMAO @ Sly , cheek!

    Roger, thanks again, reading this thread makes me think I have wasted some good opportunities...I was in better shape in my early 20s!!..if i had kept on training???? Ah well u gotta look forward...

    Gurry, I am not natural m8, but please dont prejudge me on that....I *know* i work damn hard in that gym and train my a$$ off 99% of the time....squats, deadlift, benching etc, all hard n heavy, are the mainstay of my routine. I do have 'focus'. I've got alot of fat to lose......
    Took the fotos just to see how I look basically m8.

    Yeh no probs about the fotos for ure sis, as long as i get some of her in return

    Off to the gym now, the question 2nite is, do i deadlift or not as my legs are still killing from weds squats?...where's that bar hehe!!!

    Angel, lol , good idea about the tan but i think we should get some practice in now rather than in a few months time??? [:p]

    Red sirus, thanks bro'...

    I wear baggy clothes in the gym thus i've never really had feedback on good points/bad points about my development except for my legs as i wear shorts in the summer. From people's comments i know my legs are a bit mad [:p]...does my nut a bit cos i'd rather my upperbody respond more readily...but then again i should be grateful i've got a responsive muscle group.

    Thanks again guys and gals, just reading this thread gives me a 'pick up' and makes me wanna train even more [}:)]

    well Hardcore, if you need a 'pick up' just look at all the positive comments you've had on here so far. From experience, most guys can't see how their body changes until someone else points it out.

    Believe every word of it babe because you really do look amazing. I've only ever seen 2 amateur comps but you would have wiped the floor with a lot of those guys

    p.s. Got me St Tropez at the ready

    well done mate, your in great shape, legs rock from what i can see. you mentioned the journal by les, you should post your own with pics, i think journals can be very inspiring to others and there owners.

    keep up the hard work!
