in my opinion the best way to show the shoulders is the most muscular pose. try that one and take one more photo. :)

Compared to your first pics in this thread posted on the Tue Jan 15, 2008 + 2 weeks

So from Jan the 1st to the 25th...less than a month you get those results?!?!?!

Thanks tuc. You are definitely an inspiration and seeing your results has motivated me so much.

Thanks Robert. Yeah I was swimming 1500 m twice a week and using resistance bands and I guess I toned up a little. There wasn't any real gain in size in those two weeks but I lost a bit of fat.

Lately I feel like my upper body strength has increased and I think it has something to do with all the push ups we've been doing for the challenge. So thanks for starting that!

Between June and December I just ate ate ate and trained consistently. At first I didn't really know what I was doing but I read about 5 x 5 programs and they have worked well. From December 3 - Jan 19 I was travelling, so I haven't been as consistent with it all, but I'm home now and back into it!

I eat lots, train hard, drink lots of water and sleep at least 8 hours each night. Right now I'm using Ryan's (vegan essentials) power training routine - http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page= ... antraining

Yes those first pics are from a year ago, when I was swimming and doing some resistance training. I started lifting weights in June/July 2008. I was around 70 kg in those first photos and I'm around 83.5 - 84 kg in the mornings now. Evening weight has been as high as 86 kg this week. :)

The photo on the left is from Halloween 2007. My girlfriend and I were ceiling fans..get it?.. in case you're wondering what's up with the singlet and everything. I started lifting about 8 months after that photo was taken. The photo on the right is from last night.

Back then I was about 70 kg, now I'm around 87 - 89 kg.
