Thanks a lot! :) actually i'm not THAT massive... but the more my body fat decreases, the more massive i look...

When i'm preparing for a contest people often ask me if i had gained some muscle mass and weight, and then they're quite surprised hearing that i actually LOST weight... :)
You can achieve a lot without meat and roids... if everything fits together: patience, discipline, perseverance, correct training and nutrition...and of course proper genetics. But even without outstanding genetics a lot is possible!

Dumbbell biceps curls
Hammer curls
Bench press

My battered knee is aching during the workout and givin me some imbalance while i'm squatting... but i GOTTA do something... or my legs will look worse and worse. Gotta fight my way through it!

Arvid I too do a whole body work out every other day, and on off day I'm doing some cardio and stretching/yoga. To bad were not closer I could use a training partner. Train hard show is approaching.

That's quite unusual... ;) most people think i'm kind of weird caus i don't do split training :)

But i like to train this "oldschool" way... on the days where i don't visit the gym, i do some training for my abs and calves at home...

Oh yes, i will train hard! I'm really focused on my contest now!
