Do you believe that?!

I think he said he used to do only these exercises while he was a powerlifter. He built his mass and strength with them.
But i would think he added other exercises when he switched to bodybuilding. Compare the pics. It's more than just getting rid of bodyfat!
No one said it would be easy.

what it is that i was looking at a mirror, as i had to get in the right position to catch the elusive light. the mirror was on the floor, hence the ridiculous expression!

thanks for the compliments though :D

For those of you who haven't met Jonathan, he's also 6'8" (203.2 centimeters)! :shock:

It takes a huge amount of muscle to look like anything at that height. Good work Jonathan! 8)

6foot 7.5 (201.5cm) unfortunately - i wish that i had made 6foot 8, but it wasnt to be!

i still need to put lots and lots more muscle on until im happy with things. 125kg (275lb) and still reasonably ripped is where i want to be heading. i think that it will take me another three year to get to that though. gaining is hard for me, unless i have a constant stream of food, and i get to sit on my ass all day!!
