My photos

#16 Postby bps » Fri Sep 30, 2005 1:47 pm

Thanks for all of the positive feedback on my photos. I am actually almost 15 lbs lighter than I was in the other photos. I decided to get myself into decent shape for these photos. Being leaner creates the illusion of increased size. My core strength is actually decent. I have deadlifted 500 lbs and squatted 500 lbs. However, my 36 year old knees are telling me that this is no longer a good idea.

I'd like to say that I do somthing special for my arms, but I don't. I just train them hard like everything else. I guess I should thank my parents for the good genetics.

hey ben - i meant no offense by my comment - you have a fantastic physique - only that i personally would like to go down the road of kazmaier and pudzanowski (big thick, though reasonably defined mid sections).

keep training man, and go vegan :wink:

No offense taken. I realize that genetically I'm more suited to bodybuilding than powerlifting or other strength sports. However, I do have a little bit of strength.

hey! with a 500lb squat and deadlift, you have more than just a little bit of strength!

out of interest, what is you bench 1rm. taking a look at you, depending on whether or not you do any strength training, i would put your 1rm at 330-425lb. its really hard to guess though!

I have benched 405 in the past. I have never attempted more than that. I can usually put up 315 for 8-10 reps.

Cool, I just saw this thread.

I'm up in Canada now. Yeah, Ben is a BIG dude, he trains at my gym. There are a number of articles on the front page written by him, or featuring him.

Ben, great to see you on the forum too!

I'll be in touch later, gotta get going to bed now.
