I had a hell of a chest and bicep workout this morning- the best one by far in the 9 months I've been lifting. Reps to the first 5 in- will get everybody else on r/c. Set a pr on incline db press at 60lbs/ 3 sets of 8-10 and a pr on curls with a triple drop set of 60, 50, and 40lbs for 3 sets where I'd normally do 50, 40, 30lbs. Still have a long way to go but feels great... Pics of start and current below:


April 1, 2011 215 lbs.

great job, curious why do your arms seem so over developed compared to say chest? Just surprised with the arm size you don;t have more chest muscle.

Thanks bro. I've got a lot of fat around my chest and lower stomach still. Been trying to get rid of it for a few months now but it's been real tough. My arms seem to have grown quicker since I took more time off between workouts. Used to do chest/arms every 3 days now do it every 4 days and have had much better results. Don't know if you can tell but my left side chest has more fat than my right- I can see a big difference between the 2 when I look in the mirror. Just sent reps your way too...

Some problem to have, most of us arms are last to come up. once again great job and i wouldn't say a lot of fat on the chest and stomach amazing what you have transformed.

Great body transformation! You should be proud. Also, very nice head transformation. Not many people can turn a square head into a more round one. ;)

Grats again, no need for reps.

No problem. I had my doubts for a while because it took me a long while to dial it in but worked out in the end.

Thanks DocHoss... It looks like I'll have to drag her in the gym kicking and screaming at this point.

Didn't post to get reps. Reps aren't what keeps me going. Posted because I'm proud of the progress I've made and maybe it'll motivate other folks who see it to keep pushing themselves.
