  • I posted this on getbig in response to being "natural" and figured I would update here.

    These are from 9 weeks out, taken 5-7-11

    (I think I look much better in the one where I'm making a weird face (taken about a minute before the second one) just by how I'm posing. Funny how sometimes posing can make such a big difference).

    • I've gotten questions here before about measurements, and I very very rarely take them, but I took some quick ones today (without even taking my shirt off), and here are some rough measurements, for all the times i said "i have no idea":

      arm flexed 17 ish inches, 24-25 inch thighs, 31-32 inch waist and chest (under armpit) around 45 inches

      • ^^^ That just goes to prove that bodybuilding is all an illusion because your waist seems much smaller and everything else seems bigger!

          • Awesome, agree that your waist in comparison to the rest of you seems smaller then what your measurements imply or I could say the same about your chest/back in comparison to your waist appear bigger than your measurements.

            On a side note, where do you place your hands while doing lying triceps extension? Just curious as you hear of so many people complaining about elbows hurting, etc. which is why I hold it a bit wider then the norm on the e-z bar but was wondering if maybe this is not as beneficial overall in development.

              Tim is right, bodybuilding is not just about reality (how big you actually are; if it were I'd be screwed cause I'm really not that big), but also the illusion you can create.

              How about based on this pic I just took:

                I dont do that exercise with a regular curl bar these days (yes, you guessed it right, they hurt) so I've been doing them on the cable station (still lying on a bench). I would say do them however they don't bother you because its not gonna make a big difference where you grip it; if you're working your triceps, you're working them!

                  I certainly believe you, and agree for sure with Tim. Those pics make your arms look like 19's or 20's. Good stuff J...looking forward to seeing how you fare at the TU this year.
