    Ha! Wait, are you trying to say it was just an illusion? Damn...
    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.

    Rare full body pic...I work out in long pants, so most of my gym pics are upper body. On occasion, I will take a pic of my lower body just to prove I work out my legs, but I rarely have the camera positioned for the big picture. Today I decided to put on some shorts to see my legs while I did squats. Will never have impressive legs, but I think they are in proportion with my upper body for the most part.

    4 months of surplus and I only put on 8 pounds. Dropping a couple hundred to try and shed the fat I gained while trying to maintain 4 pounds. 5 months til I’m 51, so I gotta look descent for my yearly update picture.

    Good aesthetics! (on spread) How is the X-Frame factor when taking a shot like that shirtless? I struggle with leg width too and trying to get them proportional enough so that at lower bodyfat levels I can at least get some semblance of an X Frame when the waist is narrow.

    It must be leg progress day, I was just logging on to put up a shot from this morning while getting dressed. Taken cold in morning light. I just finished a prolonged bulk cycle since around end of September, putting on about 11 pounds. Starting my cut now, but I am pleased at my legs filling out a little bit, especially the Rectus Femoris. I had been doing some weighted step ups (love/hate relationship with them) and I think they may have given that muscle a little bit of pop.

    Not great. I don’t have a thick waist (30” at 5’7”), but it’s “wide” (skeletal structure). I don’t have a lot of outer sweep in the quads and straight on, the waist makes the legs and skeletal shoulder width (or lack of it) unimpressive. Thus, the reason almost all of my pics have a slight twist to the midsection to hide this. I mean, not pathetic...but not anything to write home about.

    Your legs don’t look thick due to your genetics but what is there is definitely muscle!

    Do you always lift in long pants because it is chilly in your basement? In the winter I start in sweat pants but almost always take them off once I get going and start sweating. Outside of winter I just start in shorts.

    Hell yea, gotta peak for the planned photo shoots! Have you adjusted lifting routine or diet the week before you are planning on photos?

    Similar to what I mentioned to grub to me your leg circumference looks relatively thin but there is a good amount of muscle on what’s there. The medialis is popping too.

    I actually have central air in the basement, so between heat and AC it’s probably about 55ish year round (a bit cooler than upstairs). It’s very comfortable for lifting. I usually start out in athletic pants a T-shirt and a sweatshirt, and lose the sweatshirt about a half hour in, when I’m good and warm and sweating. With my job I’m pretty “immune” to temperature, since I can do the same thing in a -30 windchill as I can in 90 degrees with humidity. I’m just more comfortable in the pants for some reason.

    Gotcha. I have similar struggles with the outer sweep. And while my waist is fairly narrow, a combination of thick obliques, 'meh' lat insertions, and fat storage preferences, I have my work cut out for me to avoid an hour glass figure.

    Thin circumference is the story of my lifting career Thanks for the feedback.

    It’s not a complementary picture (especially since I’m just coming off a surplus, so I don’t even have cuts), but, truth in advertising. Here’s a “relaxed” straight on shot. In case anyone wonders, one of the improvements I made to my gym a couple years ago, was adding 6 100 watt light bulbs. Wakes me up for early morning workouts...but that’s why most of my pics look bleached out.

    EDIT: yikes! That’s hair and shadow around the one nipple, ha ha, both are the same size, but that pic makes one look huge.

    That’s definitely not a bad look grub!

    I know you (and it seems most people) prefer a leaner look but I myself like a thicker look. I personally think a competitive natural bodybuilder looks much better in their off season than they do on stage, especially when they are freaky lean because then they look thin and grainy most of the time.

    And my LED lighting in my basement gym also washes me out bad and that’s why I use a self tan for my official progress pics to document the end of a cut or bulk.

    Edit to add - just for clarification I am not saying that you wouldn’t look better dropping some body fat. As you had mentioned to me maybe losing half of what you gained might look real good.

    5' 11" currently weighing 184lbs. The heaviest I ever been in my life. Two years ago I was 155lbs. Thinking I'm around 30% bodyfat? Looking to really chip away now and get to 170 shedding some fat for the summer. Need to really dial in with the diet now.

    Here's my most recent. Too fluffy for my liking. I need to drop a good 7-10 lbs and I'll feel so much better.

    "Fluffy" LOL, to me that looks like a perfect body comp for over the winter. To me it wouldn't make sense for any of us to stay lean over the winter unless of course someone has a contest or photo shoot or something coming up. Even if not purposely bulking or cutting I could see myself being 5 to 10 lbs heavier over the winter than the summer as I continue on this fitness journey.

    After I read what I typed above I realized my thoughts may be different for someone else who doesn't live where it gets cold in the winter.

Even if not purposely bulking or cutting I could see myself being 5 to 10 lbs heavier over the winter than the summer as I continue on this fitness journey.

    After I read what I typed above I realized myp thoughts may be different for someone else who doesn't live where it gets cold in the winter.
    Ironically, I live in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, and tend to gain a little more weight (fat) in the summer and get leaner in the winter. I never really take off my shirt, so cuts don’t matter, but I do fill out my T-shirts a little better, and look “bigger” in the summer with about 5 pounds of fat, where in the winter I’m wearing layers, so it doesn’t matter if I’m leaner. Opposite of what most people do.

    Interesting, you have logic behind your approach so makes sense for you. For me there are other reasons than going without a shirt that make sense to me for being leaner in the summer. In the summer I am way more active with kids activities, yard work etc... plus it is light out way later so I stay up later. So I just burn more calories outside of exercise over summer so it lines up more with a cut than a bulk for me. In the winter when I am burning less calories and going to bed earlier recovery should be better so seems like a good time to work on pushing heavier weights while gaining some weight.
    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.

    Just a spontaneous wardrobe selfie that shows some of the back gains I made over the fall-winter bulk. Contours are starting to show as I lean out.

    Took a week to spend some time with friends in Chicago for my birthday... turned 35. Am I allowed in here now?
    Might have been a vacation... but I can't stay out of the gym. Went to one of my bucket list gyms... Quads Gym.

    A couple random, unplanned back shots from my basement workout this evening at 170 lbs. Still a few pounds left to go before a maintenance phase and then my “end of cut” pics but getting there.

    Those shelves don’t bother me and don’t affect my workout. But I am sure they would bother you OCD guys, especially those with color schemes and matching plates .

    It would be nice to have the extra 2 1/2 or 3 feet of width but I have enough room (for now).
