If I ever meet up with you I need to check out your mid traps, I have watched you advance for quite a while now but in all your pics it always seems that this one part does not fill in. I really want to see if I am nuts about this.

@zin- you not crazy brah.... I train traps more now but I've neglected them ever since I went vegan 3yrs ago. I was up to shrugging 6-7 plates(each side) and when my weight/bodyfat went so did all my strength in that exercise so I quit doing them. My back is what cost me in my last show. I was destined to get second in the light heavy weight but then I did my back poses and main judge was disappointed.

I appreciate you pointing it out for everyone to see. Wish more people would critique and tell me what I need to work on. It seems everytime I do back it hits my Lars and lower back(the hump) the most. Traps will grow when flexed and showed in the front but lack in the back. It's frustrating!!

What I am seeing is a mid trap issue. This can be worked on with rows targeting the upper back, so no super low rows, and by pinching the scapulae together hard. I have no problem examining and pointing these things out, its obvious your body is awesome, but is that really what you need to hear?

Zin yeah I'm aware that high rows will get it somewhat but I look at pics even when my back was at it's biggest years ago and I still lacked there.

Rear bb shrugs has brought it up some. Have been keeping hands close together and squeezing hard as I bring the bar up

Had blood work done today. I guess we will see how everything is in a couple weeks or so.

I did legs today. Higher reps than normal and way more sets on everything.

I weighed in at drs office at 175. Im def leaner than I was last year at this time and weigh less. Its okay though. Im just a week.5 away from Mr Alabama.

Not getting much sleep. I wake up all through the night looking at the clock. I pee about 3 times a night now. Im going to Protan up tomorrow just to see how everything is looking at a darker me.

Oh yeah Cubby- thanks for the info, but I am anti-DL. Have been for years now.

Bloodwork results in:

but first let me just tell you what the doctor typed about my cholesterol-
"the HDL is borderline low at 34 and it should be a minimum of 40, higher the better. regular exercise helps to raise it.."

really I need to workout regularly... WTF

anyway on with the numbers:
vitamin D is 89.5, range is 30 or higher
b-12 is 695 and range is 211-946
calcium is 9.1, range is 8.6-10.2
triglycerides are 60,
cholesterol is 88
hdl/LDL is 34/42

so everything checked out normal but my HdL and white blood cells which are borderline low. Hmmm
