    You aren't gay if you...

    Have your friend take a picture of you posing. So many times I am following a journal and I see someone ready to post a picture of before and after...and I see a fuzzy out of focus guy trying to flex while holding a camera phone in his bathroom really quickly where no one can see him. This is the same sport that huge guys in speedos hug each other to congratulate each other after a contest while covered in body oil.

    Honestly, this is bodybuilding. You can't show progress in a snow suit (so don't wear shorts that come down to your ankles). And you can't take a good picture using your camera phone in your bathroom mirror. I'm curious to see what people look like that are lifting certain weights...particularly similar to mine. Can we get over the homophobia long enough to just get a digital camera? You can get one for under $100 that will do everything you need to track your progress.

    So throw on a pair of boxers or shorts that don't cover your quads and tell your friend you aren't gay but want to track the progress of your muscle development and please take a couple of photos.
    There is no finish line.
    Overtraining happens far less often than laziness.

    i have my wife do it but if she aint around i could care less. Its not gay but some people just cant grasp the concept that you might have to get a guy to take your pic. I doubt poeple think Jay Cutler is gay when he does a photo shoot.

    Arnold said in one of his books that with bodybuilding and lifting weights you have to pose in order to see your progress just how a guy who runs track times himself with a watch, a bodybuilder poses to see his weak and strong points.

    what is gay is the 115 pound guy doing 50 sets for biceps in the mirror flexing each chance he has. Or the 135 pound guy flexing his abs in the mirror every 2 seconds...Sorry I work at a gym and workout there so i spend 10 hours in the gym a day u tend to see some funny ****.

    That would be a really funny job. How often do you see big strong guys coming through your gym? What gym do you work at?

    But to the OP, yeah, a cheap digital is all you need. And even then, they all have time delay anyway, so you don't even have to have a friend take the picture. Set the time delay, get in position, strike a pose, and viola!
    How does one destroy darkness? The answer dawned upon my mind, blinding in it's brilliance. To destroy darkness, one must simply expose it to the light.

    Right on the head. er.. Maybe that was a bad pun. *laughing*

    I agree.. I do all my pics on timer. My wife helps me with my 3-4 BF caliper points that I just can't do on my own though.
