Here are some pics of my progress. I don't have a training schedule or a nutrition plan and I only used a bench press, a barbell and 2 x 35lbs girya weights for the first 2 months. After that I've also used dumbbells and a curl bar but nothing else.

I'm 184cm tall (approximately 6 feet) and because of it I've always looked very skinny since I'm lightweight, baby :wink:.

This is the condition I began with, notice the really skinny arms:

Here's my back after 9 weeks.

And again after 10 weeks.

Image

And the same other way round:

Image

I'm still skinny but at least I'm making a progress. 8)

Also, note the really fancy wallpaper. And the pale skin color, in december 2007 sun shone for a total of 22 hours (I'm not joking!!) and I think I was in the office at least 90 % of that time. Really cloudy and dark here. :/

yeah, arms look great! And back is mostly about posing. Sometimes the way we display our back can make it look better or worse even with the same amount of muscle. It's hard to pose sometimes.

But overall, looking great man!

Keep it up. Glad to hear you're working hard. That is always a great approach for positive results. A lot of people are afraid to work hard (including myself during spurts over the past few years).

Well done.

Nice arms! :)
Shoulders show alot of promise, and lats are peeking out. As ronnie would say, "Gotta get em bigga, they ain't big enough yet". :twisted:
Good work. COOL! 8)

Thanks for all the positive feedback! I know I have to work more with my back, but things aren't really that miserable that they look like in the first photo, I'm squeezing my shoulders backwards there.

Here's a pic I'm doing exactly the opposite and I think Robert was right, posing really can make a difference. Anyway, now it's been ~ 10 weeks already and I think the progress is still pretty fast.

edit: moved the pic to the first post of this topic

The positive feeling I get from you guys really helps me! Big up!

edit: cropped the pic a bit

thanks BodhiDave and flanders!

I don't really have that much before pics, I added one in the first post but the angle is bad and it cannot be used that well for comparison. Well, it does give some idea of how skinny I was to begin with.

I get told by people all the time that my arms are growing fast. It might even be true. :roll:

What exercises and their reps are you doing per week to increase arm size? I have puny arms also. :(
