Re: Kingclumsy gets Rolling

Re: Kingclumsy gets Rolling

Nice, I've got the beard at the moment but I got my hair cut to find a job. I may grow it again in the future. Maybe when I'm retired I can look like a wizard

Re: Kingclumsy's Before Phoros, now to work on the after!

Any advice on areas of focus? I'm just starting stronglifts 5x5 for now and keeping my protein intake up

. Should I give extra focus to my upper body? or will it catch up with time.

Kingclumsy's Before Phoros, now to work on the after!

Kinda sucky photo but shows problem, skinny arms and not much definiton else where.

I'll ask my fiance to take a better photo later.

I want to improve my upper body size and definition, any specific suggestions? I'm doing starting strength at the moment (more or less)
