Wow, AWESOME progress veggeep! :shock:
:thumbleft:

You packed a lot of mass on in this short time!
I'm especially impressed by your leg development.

Did you recover from an illness or were you genetically skinny? (no offense intended - i know athletes from both backgrounds)

Whatever you do - keep doing it, it's working ;) (change it only when the progress stops :) )

Thanks guys! And don't worry -no offense taken.

I am genetically predisposed to being skinny. I got the beanpole gene from my dad. If I stop working out and eating like a horse, I'll be 134 Lbs again in a matter of a few months :cry:

Ha ha ha ha! That's a'ight though... I don't let that deter me. I learned a lot about the special challenges of being 6'+ ectomorph with a raging metabolism from John Berardi and Michael Mejia in their book "Scrawny to Brawny", and I learned how to stop kidding myself about what it takes to really pack on the mass. Ever since I changed my focus last year, I've seen greater gains than at any other time in my life :D

It's awesome how you packed it on as muscle. I mean, it looks like you took slabs of pure muscle and attached it to your body. :lol:

Hehehehe... I must've done something right :lol: I actually LOST body fat over the past year! Like I can afford to lose body fat :roll:

Of course, more muscle means faster fat-burning metabolism, so I have to adjust my calories accordingly, LOL.

Rob and Roid - just looking through some older threads - you've packed on some size since those pics, huh? :D

I remember when this was a current topic. I never took any "before" pictures though, probably mostly due to lack of confidence, though it would have been great to have, looking back.

Yeah, BEFORE photos are always good to take. I suggest taking progress pics every few weeks or couple of months to track progress over long periods. I've done it for the past 6 years and it's fun to look back on.

Great success everyone and all the best with current progress.
