[WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU GUYS LIKE COULD OFFER, I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET :) ]

hiya buddies,

my name is devin. i've been working out for a little more then a year, i've gained 20 pounds of mostly muscle in that time. i'm still pretty skinny. i'm in my bulking period and eating BIG. haven't done any cardio though i'm planning on using HIIT really soon.

had to edit out the nips, nobody wants to see them right! :)



-funny, pic makes me look bigger then i am.

height- 6'1"
weight- 170
body fat%- 12% (thought it was lower but got tested today :(, sad now)

GOAL- get to 185 with less body fat, get BIG AND CUT!!

bench press - 205-215 pounds
curl - 45 pound DBs

i'm gonna start a detailed journal next week :)

    Surely you can get a better pic than that, does ur camera have a self-timer? also, nobody here is offended by nips, we've all got 'em. those lense flares really make it hard to judge how good ur chest is.

    What does your routine look like? How about diet? Any supps?

    I've heard of the red eye effect but those nipples are mesmerizing.

    Keep up the hard work and remember you got to eat big to get big.

    sorry butron, i just borrowed my pals cam and i don't think it has a self timer. lol, yeah, i know it's a pretty crappy shot! lol best i could do though :(

    thanks for the nipple compliment dculley! :)

    burton, i'm gonna post a full routine out beginning next week cuzz i'm still recovering from a shoulder injury. my workouts are mostly compound movements, heavy weights, and low reps. i use BIG AL's routine mostly.

    the only thing i take is protien and glutamen.

    can you suggest safe supplements that i can use to aid me?

    thanks guys, I GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY THING YOU GUYS HAVE TO ADD, ADVICE, CRITQUE, ANYTHING. I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET :)

    whew, today i preformed HIIT and man i'm tired. it felt like my heart was gonna jump out of my chest!

    i used a amercian football field, and ran max speed along the long side of it and then did a moderate walk along the short side, then ran max along the other long side, and so on and so forth. did that for 25 mins.

    tomorrow will be a big day for me, i'm gonna officially start a detailed tracking of my workouts for you guys to critique :)

    i appreciate anything you guys have to offer, thanks.

    MONDAY

    Okay, just got back from BACK/BICEPS DAY

    Deadlifts - 5x7
    Rows - 5x7

    Barbell curls - 5x6
    Incline hammer curls - 5x6
    Concentration curls - 3x5

    also saw a hot babe that like the fool i am, let slip right away! She was doing squats while i was deadlifting and after every set, i get winded and lightheaded-couldn't be smooth so i decided it was better to wait and fight another day. i hope i get her, she seems like a nice girl.

    I tried it once, about a year ago. i really didn't cycle it right maybe, but at the time i didn't think it was worth it.

    but, i'll give it another shot. so what brand has ur recommendation buton?

    one more question, i know this will sound silly, but what does it actually do? i hear that it's energy right?

    is that the only supp you take burton? what do u think of andro?

    i wouldn't bother with creatine! just eat right and big! the only supplement IMO that may be of use is whey straight after your workout and 1st thing in the morning when your muscles need some quick protein. EAT EAT EAT

    awesome man!

    i did plan on getting to 185 and then start cutting, but now i think i'm gonna shoot for 200 then cut back down to a SOLID 185.

    i'm really interested in seeing how everything's working out for you. we can exchange ideas on what works and what doesn't.

    it's been a few weeks since that pic above, so i'm gonna post another pic up real soon :)

    it's been well over a month and i've only gained 4 pounds. i haven't checked my bodyfat lately but by the looks of it i gainned some quality muscle. i'll probably post a few pics up in a week or two.

    i've been working hard but i guess i have to step it up with my diet. i really haven't gone all out on the diet part.

    Back/Bis - 28 sets is excessive IMO. Drop the concentration curls and do only 3 sets of barbell and hammer curls. 6 sets is plenty for bis especially after back. 3 sets of each of the back exercises would be better too IMO.

    Legs - Exercise selection looks excellent once you make those changes. I'd only do 3 working sets per exercise though.

    Chest/tris - Do dips first! Then incline dumbbell then some flyes. Seriously, get rid of bench. I think 6-8 sets is plenty for chest. For tris, do dips or close grip bench and maybe some tate presses, JM presses or skulls. Kickbacks are such a waste of time.

    Shoulders - Once again, I'd go to 3 working sets per exercise, even that may be too much.

    I don't like your split either. I wouldn't like to squat/SLDL the day after deads. I also wouldn't want to military press the day after tris.

    How about:

    Monday - Legs
    Tuesday - Chest/tris
    Thursday - Back
    Friday - Shoulders

    My $0.02...
