View Full Version : Got some new pics

02-03-2003, 09:55 PM
Just got pics back from a shoot a few weeks after my last show last fall. Pic posting looks like it's been a bit slow lately, so here's one I like. One thing about getting good shots done when you're in great shape -- they serve as a motivational tool, reminding you of what you can accomplish. Now, if I could only stay close to this condition year 'round!

The lighting for this shoot was intentionally soft, so cuts and striations are not as evident as with harsher lighting, but I thought this one turned out nice, too.

GymStud, on the envy scale of 1 - 10, I just hit a 10 :) Some day, I'll get there.

How about some stats ... age - size ?

You are really going to cause the Ladies to go crazy on here:D

Absolutely excellent body sculpting. Hope I can chisel down even half as well as you. Thanks for your inspiration.

A little better each time you post!
What's your BF right now ? and what's your next goal for 2003?

It's always great motivation to see your pics!
If I wasn't stuck in this wheelchair for another month, I would rush to the gym right now ..:-)

Props are always nice, but I really get jazzed when somebody says I inspired them to go to the gym. Thanks! To answer Qs -- don't know what current bf is, but it's not where it should be. After a full 20 weeks of dieting, I kinda fell off the wagon in Dec. and chowed my way through much of Jan. Weight was back up to 185 from contest weight of 165-167...but I've cleaned things up to get ready for a beach trip in a few weeks. I think 175 @ 5'11 would be a good off-season weight for me... I don't buy into the old-school, put on 50# during the offseason, tho I'm sure some will disagree. Haven't decided on next comps; as some here have suggested, I may skip a season to focus on getting bigger. I appreciate the concern for my kidneys and liver, but they're 100% healthy. Some of us who have NOT used AS consider it a compliment when it's suggested that we do. But we always like to set the record straight and get credit for the time spent in the gym and in the kitchen. Now, I hear some tuna calling. Oh, and two-walks, coming up on 45 candles.

Absolutely love the lighting on the pics...great ab work, probably could push the traps a bit more (constructive critique). Overall you did a fantastic job. Kind of laughed at the HGH comments - but take it as a compliment.

Question, what music are you posing to. As I get older, I feel I need to adapt the music, "For those about to Rock" doesn't work well for me much anymore.

ManOSteel -- I like to have fun with evening routines... in 01 (just after 9-11) I used a real upbeat, patriotic Kenny Rogers song from the late 80s called "The Pride is Back" with soundbites from Pres. Bush talking about America overcoming the attacks. This last fall I used Anastasia's "Paid My Dues." It was a "younger" song but had good lyrics about being "knocked down and kicked around" and a great beat. Seemed right for masters. I've seen most masters guys use classic rock or sometimes slower more melodic stuff. Guess it depends on what you're comfortable with and what fits your physique, and what the audience will get into. It's nice to have the crowd on your side.

WOW, I'm 45 and if I looked half as good as you I'd be a happy camper! Good Work.......
