Holy Wow Tuc I haven't looked at this thread before, you look massive!

Inspirational stuff.

Hey, I forgot to check this topic since I didn't have that good photos to post here. But anyway, here goes!

Thanks hilary and RobertSupreme! The reason why I keep doing this is because I get so much motivation from progress of people such as hilary, L&G and many many many others and because I can give that same motivation to others.

The upper one is from january, I had great bulking going on but then I got ill and ate too little for almost 2 weeks. The lower one is from late february, I'm a bit smaller but I'm not pumped in that one.

The second pic is much clearer, top one is a bit blurry. Looking swol as usual. Bot definitely menacing shots. I can see that vein is running from you neck all the way down to your wrist. NICE

You have a good amount of muscle on your frame now brother. Should be proud of yourself.

And the wallpaper never disappoints, as usual! :D

Keep up the fantastic job b.u.d.d.a.y.! ;)

posing is not your thing, huh? i still don't get what you exactly wanna show with the second pose although you do it quite often it seems. and i'm almost convinced that your neck isn't as weak as i thought, it's just that you don't "bring it out" right. of course for a bodybuilder who doesn't want to compete at a show posing is not that important. all i want to say is that you would give a better impression of yourself if you could pose a bit better.

Awesome!!!! I've always thought your biceps/triceps are impressive and you don't let it down!

Huh, long time without updates! Well, I was dancing instead of bbing and it hurt my muscles quite a bit... but it also helped me to get rid of some fat. Also, biceps NOT pumped at all in this pic.

I just updated my profile, here's the same pic a bit bigger:

Image

As you might notice, I'm lighter than before but I also have some sixpack! :mrgreen: It will be gone soon with the amount of food I am eating.

L&G, you are being too kind... how about some negative feedback for a change? :zunge: Thanks anyway man!

xphilx, I am not trying to pose bbing style but trying to show how I really look like. That pose shows how my arms, shoulders and pecs really look like. If you want I can take pics monthly in all bbing poses... ;) But really, I desperately need to work on my posing. It is also quite difficult to take pics wih timer alone. That's an excuse to crappy quality of the pics!

Lena01, thanks! Hope you still think that way even though I lost some weight...

See if you can put a mirror behind your camera. Then you may have more of an idea of what the pose will look like by the time the timer takes the picture. You need to play around with the pose a little bit more. BB posers know of tricks that they do to get the right look for a body part. Like the bottom hand should be a fist instead of open hand. You did wonderful showing your six pack thru the circle of arms though. Nice touch there. And play around with the shadow/lighting a little more. Like how about some kind of lighting from below?

Thanks mates for the compliments, and thx Gaia for the tips! I try to use a mirror but it's just not that easy... and I should try to use different lighting ect., maybe you'll see if it works in muscle contests!

There was a large article of me and my eating habits in a paper, a pic of the article here:

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk25 ... 5141-1.jpg

A trained nutritionist said that I eat very healthy food, and a senior researcher specialized in environmental impact of food production said that pretty much everything in my diet is positive.

The article is about different ways to reduce CO2 emissions by changing eating habits. I think my diet was considered the best. There was also a freegan, a flexarian and low carbon (not low carb but low CO2) diet person in that paper.

If you insist I can translate the article. But you have to ask for it, I won't do it if no one is interested. ;)

Get some natural lighting for your pictures. Works a lot better than a lightbulb. Yeah posing needs a bit more work. Practice in the mirror and copy what you see online that looks good to you. Look at natural people as they tend to be more obtainable vs the Pros.
