    Hey guys! i could use some opinions and help!

    so i am 16 years old and weigh around 140 pounds. i have 5’6 and i have photos in my gallery. i’ve been lifting for about 4 months and made the mistake of doing a dirty bulk the first month but then did research and realized that’s not the best way to go about it. i’ve been “lean bulking” for about a month and focusing on compound movements mainly. but i want abs and defined shoulders. i know it’s going to take time but does anyone have advice for what i should do? thanks in advance!
    the pictures are labeled A B C D
    A is front relaxed
    B is front flexed
    C is side relaxed
    D is side flexed

    I recently sprained my pinky finger on my left hand and limited in gripping any barbells and dumbells, leaving me a bit stumped about what exercises I can still do at the gym to target upper body (chest, arms, back, shoulders, etc). I've been doing loads of leg machine exercises because they don't require a grip of anything but wanted some insight on upper body exercises. Any help is much appreciated if anyone has been through something similar and found workarounds. Cheers!

    @ Sean: You answered your own question; excellent muscular delt definition takes time! We're not talking months for most people. It could take a couple of years (or more), depending on how much size is built, the effort put in, consistency, nutrition, level of conditioning... Patience and dedication will pay off.

    @ elysse: I've lifted with a broken pinky (in a splint), using BBs, DBs, cables and machines, and continued on with my normal routine as best I could. You can try using grips for that hand.

    Good luck to both of you! Keep up the momentum...
