Ekendra Goravani's progress photos.

#1 Postby Eksster » Thu Jan 08, 2009 8:31 pm

Hey what's up. Ekendra here. These are my progress pictures up till now. I'm hoping to gain more muscle and continue building an agile ninja like break dancer physique in the process. Vegetarian all my life, Vegan since June 2007.


This is 2003. One of my earliest pic's. Vegetarian at the time.

1/8/09 Vegan now for over a year and a half on top of vegetarian all my life. Haven't been working out much, (like almost as much as once a month) so now I'm trying to pick it up again. I want better and better abs, shoulders, and triceps.

Great abs and bi's
I'm guessing that despite that fact you aren't lifting weights, you
aint exactly sitting around on the couch :D
With this as your starting point, I think you will go along way
Look forward to seeing the progress
Have you ever loved someone so much you didn't care what happened to yourself?
You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.
Have you ever craved someone so much you didn't exist anymore?

For the delts: I have found that dumbbell front raises with a little toward the mid line of the body as you bring the weights up, make them more rounder. Also doing the military press, use a smith press and scoot the chair back a little (like the motion of an intense incline push up - yeah it will work the pecs too, but the tie-in to the front delt is awesome). Also make sure you do rear delt flyes.
Also for delts, lifting heavy doesn't always mean bigger delts. I get good results with burns (longer reps for set, with medium weights). I cycle with all my body parts, but with my delts I do a 2 week cycle, and the rest is 4 week cycle.

For the triceps: work the long and short heads. Thus, pushdown on the cable and overhead extensions on the cable (the rope is harder to do). Here for me, heavy is better, with more results.

You need no work on your abs that I can see! 8)

Overall very nice symmetry, and some vascularization! Going to do any shows?

Hey I like your deodorant, oh yeah, and the frame you have to work with.
Awesome is a possibility for you.

Looking good! Some work on the shoulders and biceps and away you go!

PS- in your avatar your face looks a lot like a friend of mine... so much it's weird.
