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

Holy wow (What Tuc said lol) :shock:

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?!?!?!

Sam, tell me what you're doing and tell me now man! :D

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.

Someone has been eating their Weetbix....

Great work Sam, everything you have added is muscle...
Keep it up!
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?
