Nice tattoo. Arms are big. Back and trapezius have a good shape. :)

The best supplement for someone who is not eating enough and is therefore not recovering is more food.

Nice! You're one of the biggest, strongest guys we've got! I love the arm thickness and the traps that just stick up naturally.

Great stuff my friend.

Thanks Everyone.
I think I'm lucky with my Traps, they have always been pretty big.
Since I've been training them for Rugby they have sort of jumped out somewhat.
For arms, I just do the regular exercises, and try and hit all the heads,
I train them after chest or back so that gives them a bit extra.
Bi's have dropped off a lot this year which is annoying, Tendonitis in my elbow has meant
I haven't been able to do anything but basic curls for months (No Hammer curls, twisting etc)
Thankfully that has recovered and I have started hammer curls etc again, so looking to get that
pop back into my bi's
Chest has changed a lot lately, maybe because I have been concentrating on Dumbell Pressing or pure
strength work without stretching exercises like flyes and cable cross overs etc or maybe because I have lost bodyfat. It seems to have almost flattened out. I've started hitting the flyes etc again to give it some sizzle.
A better chest pose, probably wouldn't hurt either....

I'm hitting the Cardio hard at the moment, and my diet is really tight, so hoping to rip the fat off and get some more definition.
I'll post some more photos in a few weeks.

Can you give an example of what you might eat on an average day?

At the moment a Typical day might look something like this

Breakfast - Weetbix with soymilk

Morning Tea - Coffee on soymilk and a larabar

Lunch - Tofu or Tempeh and Veggies (Carrots, Tomatoes, Baby Spinach, Kale, Celery, Snow Peas etc)

Before Gym - Pea protein shake and piece of fruit (Nectarine or something)

After Gym - Protein Shake

Dinner - Baked Beans on Bread (Pumpernickel Usually) with a few extras - Some more Kale, Nutritional Yeast etc

This works out to.
2200 Calories
25% Protein
25% Fat
50% Carbs

At the Gym I usually Burn around 400 Calories lifting weights and then 300 doing Cardio - So subtract about 700 Calories from that I guess.

I am taking the following supplements (Just to make sure)

A multivitamin and mineral
B12 - Better Safe than Mad.
CoQ10 - Blood Pressure
Lysine - To help prevent cold sores
Zinc - I was sick a few weeks back and want to stay healthy

Ooooo, beans on toast! I haven't had that since I lived in Scotland, way back in the day...

Massive arms and back, too.

Nice shoulders, and all. Particularly impressed by the size of your Deltoid (Posterior), mine are like tissue paper.

Only 2200 calories for a man of your size ? I eat this and I'm ridiculously small compared to you.
