Man take a picture of yourself standing straight like on the previous page if you're going to do a comparison.

x2 what Ender said hlss, ya can't be taking pictures with a warped sense of proportion and use'em as progress pics. There's no way to tell what actual improvements were made.

Ok, so for easy viewing purposes, I'll repost. This is me after a V Diet, weighing ~173 lbs.

I was hesitant to post this, but I realized that the BOI is all about accountability. I wish I wouldn't have dieted, etc. Such a waste of time. Anyway, I hope I've made some progress, I just feel really angry b/c I've been serious since day 1, but haven't been smart as well as serious until a few months ago. Anyway, I hope that I can look at this pic and laugh in a few months.

Regardless, strength is WAY higher in this pic, as well as speed and overall performance. I also had just run a half-marathon and V Dieted in the pic before.

Plz be easy on me BOIz lol

EDIT: weighing around 200-205 in this pic. Need more mass. More pics in my training log if you guys are interested.

Mate, awesome work. Looks like you packed on the weight and you even look leaner as well. At your height it's gonna take longer to fill out but you're well on your way.

I also find that strength gains come much faster than aesthetic ones! But then again, I mainly train for strength lol.

I'm not really into the whole naked picture thing, but I did some digging into my old video uploads:

here are some deads from about 1 year ago. My bodyweight was most likly 295 + or - 3LBs. Managed 425 for 11. Video was from 11/12/10.




From tonight, 10/26/11: 431X10 at a bodyweight of 235.





I wish I had looked at this before tonight, as I might have found a way to grind out 11 or 12.

This is something I will do going forward: Attempt to beat my fat ass rep maxes at this lighter bodyweight.

impressive dove. you should also note that the first video was touch-and-go and the recent one deadstop. that is definitely significant.

Much leaner and stronger to boot Dove. Good work man. Are you stronger on your other lifts as well?

first pic May of last year at 217lbs. Second is the pic posted last week at 215ish lbs. Pretty much the same weight in both I would say. Posing and lighting is different but I think you can definitely see a change in bodycomp.

Thanks hoss...yeah I haven't had as much time to post recently as i'd like, and we now only have one out of 3 computers functioning properly, so getting as much time in here these days is hard. I'm really trying to slowly work up to 210-215, but it's hard without much sleep and a super hectic schedule most days, yknow?
