RE: Progress pics
Definetly looking better, good shoulders,arms legs coming along as well esp calves.
I think you need more work on your back and a bit more chest thickness
have you tried using dumbells when bench pressing maybey add dips as well?
Do you do deadlifts ?
I agree chest and back are lagging. I only use dumbells or a Smith-machine for chest. Don't do deadlifts but would like to but they knacker my back. I've tried using a very light weight with strict/perfect form but still had the same problem.
Same is true for squats (knackers lower back) but having said that I've recently started squatting again after almost a year off and it feels good!
