Hey man, this is very exciting to look at and se the progress you've achieved! Don't you just love how the pecs lift up and pop out once you start to train! You erector spinae is naturally strong and it looks awesome in the progress shots. You have grown and trimmed bf and the whole package looks awesome. Someone's been training hard and smart as well as eating right ;) Like how the hair disappeared as well. I do the same thing....

Thank you for sharing these inspiring progress shots. Hopefully we'll cross paths sometime this month while i'm in Portland. Come hang!

NICE! More mass in arms, pecs, lats (overall V-shape much better than before) and all around you in just a few months! Great job!

Amazing that you haven't gained more weight, since you look at least 10 lbs bigger than in the last pics.

I think it's really inspirational to see a guy almost 40 years old getting similar gains as guys half the age you are! Really looking forward to seeing more photos since your progress is really good!

Have fun at the reunion!

Thanks for the encouraging words, all! And thanks to L&G and Tuc especially for the specific comments. Yup, I'm loving the bigger pecs, and it's definitely gratifying to see the "V" shape start to emerge in my upper body. I'll keep at it.

My training pace has been slow and steady--partly because I don't take in a ton of calories, partly because I have limited time to train, and partly because I'm still a wimp sometimes when it comes to thrashing my muscles at the gym. But I'll keep going, and really try to solidify these gains.

Robert: let's meet up sometime for sure! You mentioned you might be able to bring me into your gym as a guest sometime...let's make it happen.

Impressive, keep it up!


Mind if I ask your stats, calories, and training?

Thanks! I'm 5'9", around 161 pounds. I don't count calories but I think it's usually somewhere between 2,000 and 2,500 daily. Sometimes less if I'm on a brief hiatus from training, which happens sometimes.

My split varies quite a bit, but it's something like this:

1. shoulders/triceps
2. back/abs
3. chest/biceps
4. legs

...with some days off (often more than I'd like) thrown in there.
