    Question Am I making any progress

    I'm new to bodybuilding/working out. I started working out every other day about six months ago and I'm not sure If I'm making progress fast enough. I'm using the app home workout. I've been taking pictures every month since I started: postimg.cc/gallery/tXcs4kp

    The dates are in the upper left corner of every picture.

    Please give me some advice! thanks!!

    You definitely made significant progress! It is obvious in your abs and biceps and chest a little too. I'd say for 6 months, you are doing good. What is your schedule and diet like?

    Are you taking any side shots or back shots?

    Thanks! Right now I do about 10 x 3 pushups, 10 x 2 wide arm pushups and 10 x 2 triceps dips for chest and arm muscles. For abs I do 16 x 2 abdominal crunches, 20 + 32 russian twists, 16 x 2 leg raises and 20 x 2 heel touches. I've also started jogging recently and can do about 5 km. I try to work out every other day. As for my diet - I only really know that I'm supposed to eat a lot of protein so I try to consume a fair amount of eggs and protein bars. I'm a student so my meals are often quite cheap and probably not very healthy. Unfortunately, I haven't taken any back or side shots yet, but thanks for the tip!

    That's a good start but that is very chest and tricep oriented. Do you have any exercises you do for back and biceps?

    Are these reps/sets easy for you or are you at your limit?
