  1. Good for you! Keep with it. Pull-ups are the most difficult upper body exercise there is. Never worry about a specific number (like what has been discussed here). As long as you make progress, that is all that matters. Ten or so years ago, I could do just one, and I hated it. Now I can do them with one arm and it is my favorite exercise. Ever try inverted rows? It's a good modification (simulation) that you can do by yourself. You can progressively change the angle over time.
  2. Hahahahaha! Yes, yes it is. I can punch pretty hard actually. I used to box and have taken various martial arts over the years.
  3. Hmmm...you're not making a crack about my height are you?
  4. Yeah, but it's all realative. Know what I mean? I'm a middleweight (5'8, 166 lbs.), with a medium bone structure. You look to be much larger than I am. So, you appear to be able to put much more mass on your frame than I can. With that being said, you probably wouldn't have to drop your b/f level as low as mine to have the same type of appearance. Keep workin'!
  5. My "before" weight was 184.4 lbs. and current weight is 166 lbs. Yes, the vascularity seems to come easy to me.
  6. I tend to have a problem with burning off too much muscle tissue with cardio exercise. So, I decided to experiment. Along with the dramatic change in nutrition, I focused on weight training only. The result (in the pics), was achieved with exactly -0- minutes of dedicated cardiovascular exercise.
  7. Here are my "before" and my "work in progress" photos. This was over about a 7 month period. Hopefully they come through o.k.
  8. Hey Everybody, I'm obviously new to this forum. I went to work on becoming vegetarian Nov 1, 2007 and have done well with it. Not completely vegan yet, but working toward it. Happy to be here and will post some before/after photos.
