I'm gaining weight now (5 kg!), and lots of it is fat, so definition is getting bad. I want to gain more mass in order to be able to lift heavier, and in some 6-8 months I'll start with cardio and low fat fruitarianism (80/10/10) as I did before, to get definition back. I really hope I will improve my pecs someday! It seems that only my lats and BELLY are getting bigger so far :lol:
PS: I really DO have more then one peace of underwear :lol: :lol: :lol:

here's the back shot. No definition at all (compared to my avatar pic), but the back is more thick, I didn't do all that dead-lifts in vain, I hope so... My waist is bigger now, so I'm slowly loosing desired V shape, but it's temporarly, as I said. As soon as I bulk a little, I'll be on low fat diet again.

Good to see some fat on there! Do you have specific lifting goals before you cut again?

Thank you, guys!

Cold Fission,
My progress with bench is going OK, I can be satisfied with dead-lifts, but in squats I suck totally! :evil: Somethings wrong with me knees, they are just weak, I have strength in muscles, but knee joints are weak. :cry:
Bench: 70 kg
Dead-lifts: 75 kg
Squat: 60 kg
I have to mention, these are data for the maximum weight and 5 reps. Never tried just one rep, to se how much can I actually lift & go. Is it safe to do that at all?

Chewy,
My goals are just to get bigger, not so much to get stronger. I know it sounds stupid, but my goal is to promote vegan nutrition in Serbia and to look healthy. Nobody does that now here. Most vegans that we see here are thin, looking weak and even unhealthy. So lots of people have prejudices about vegans being weak. I already have some audience on facebook (5000 driends), and my cookbook is about to be published. So I need to LOOK stronger and BIGGER :D :D :D But I am aware that you can't get much bigger if don't get stronger first, so now I do compound exercises and bulk. And when summer comes, I'll cut.
What would you say about this pic? But honestly! Good for Facebook profile?:))))

I think your progress is good - keep at it. You seem to make good gains steadily...

When I try to put on mass by eating extra cals., my belly easily stores the extra mass, lol. I have to really watch my cals. closely to make sure I stay in a good balance of exercise/activity vs. extra food intake.

End of the 2010 photos. Gained 9 kg of fat/muscle since I have started with gym. Most of new mass is on my legs and belly I think. Back is not looking great, no definition, but you can't have everything :D I want more mass in 2011!

You have some monster legs going on! If you are like me then you have a hella hard time putting mass on your back and shoulders, but the muscle just grows on the legs like nothing at all. Are you still doing the Armstrong program? Dips? Any kind of rows?

hhahah, monster legs:))))
I did 5x5 for some time, then I quit since I have inborn arrhythmia issues and things get worse when I lift too heavy. So now I do just regular 4 day split with lots of sets and repetitions, and in my "back day" i do pull ups, barbell and T-bar rows, also cable pull downs. But the thing with pull ups is - now I have almost 10 kg more, and it's harder to do them, so the number of pull ups I can do actually decreased...

Looking good man, quads are huge! And yeah pullups get a good bit harder when you start packing the weight on, haha.
