Losing definition and then cutting up - check out page 1 :)

#1 Postby robert » Thu Mar 13, 2008 1:49 am

I'm getting fatter and loving it! I'm up to 190 pounds (20 more than last summer) and I'm losing some of the definition I've always had!

You've all seen my "before" photos and many other photos from the past decade so these are the March 2008 bulking progress pics.

I don't think I look all that big, but I'm getting thicker and thought I'd share a few photos. In fact, I feel like I look kinda small, but maybe that is because the veins and cuts aren't there anymore.

These are from tonight. No pump, just playing around at home before heading to L.A. Thanks davidtarrfoster for taking the pics, I always appreciate it buddy! :)


Even my face is getting thicker:

Thanks. It's weird not to have definition. And to me, the quads are growing the fastest, but look the smallest in photos! I don't get it. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

They are super strong and look good in my workout pants and looked awesome in the mirror today but they wimped out for pics.

I'm liking the extra weight, the extra strength and extra size. I'll admit, it is hard to tell, but easier to tell from the Arnold Classic pics 2 weeks ago.

But these will still serve as "progress" as I continue to add size. Long road ahead, but at least I'm on the right road this time!

Nice thick triceps and wide back! :)

Legs are looking thicker. Your legs were always really cut but way to skinny IMO. Time to get them bigga!
Great job so far! :D 8)

Thanks man. Face is really full now that I look at it! :shock:

I almost didn't post them because I don't think they are that good but in a way, that is a good thing. I see a transition from ripped to thick and I know it takes time to add size and I'm slowly doing it.

I've got the "big" photos from the Arnold and now these are just progress pics that I can look back and laugh at soon. Legs are still recovering from being quite skinny and still are skinny, though they are getting bigger and stronger and I'll get some good wheel shots soon :iroc:

Nice shorts Rob :wink:

I don't understand how you are training so much, and you lost some of your
definition.

Eating more, training heavier, supplementing....just trying to grow. Long way to go, but the journey has begun.

I can still look lean in some pics as seen from Arnold Classic, but I kinda like this thicker, denser look. I'll keep working on it and I'll break 200 one of these days! 189-192 currently.

Legs are looking FANTASTIC!!!! That is what I'm most impressed with

So how much longer are you going to let that hair of yours get? My preference is a bit shorter on you... Not really short, but how you had it a few months ago when you were doing more speaking tours.
