Quads are my most stubborn bodypart but I think I've finally figured out what should work well for me.

Basically a very thorough warm up where I think the main key is getting my quads and hams pumped before starting squats. That combined with doing higher reps on my quad exercises allows me to really feel my quads working more as opposed to just feeling like I'm killing my knees.


@Bug Haha, if only. I swear I look a lot bigger in these pictures than I really am.

Impressive progress KingBeef. You seem to have the right genetics for this so far as being able to add apreciable size with no apparent fat gain. Reminds me of Levrone who used to diet up for competitions.

Perfect proportions/aesthetics. The only thing that you need to bring up is your delts and then I would say you have the perfect physique.

I wasn't around at the time, but this kinda seems like what the brandon curry thread should have been. Definitely looks like you've got the ability to do big things, I look forward to the continued updates.

You're adding mass at such an incredible rate. How many calories a day are you taking in? Or at least, how many have you ramped up to?

I've been told before eating salmon and tuna every day isn't a great idea because of mercury content. Do you eat fish EVERY day? I used to eat a can of tuna a day until i read an article on it


A can of non-albacore tuna a day is fine.



What's the deal with the albacore, mercury content?

As far as nutrition, heres a typical workout day.

Meal 1 (8am)- 1 cup oats, 1.25 cups milk, 1 scoop ON 100% Whey
529 cals, 9g fat, 65g carbs, 46g protein

Training (9am)

Meal 2 (10:30am immediately after workout) - 1 GNC Mass XXX
700 cals, 123g carbs, 50g protein

Meal 3 (1pm) - 5 eggs, 4 Jimmy Dean sausage links
612 cals, 44g fat, 40g protein

Meal 4 (3pm) - 2 cups milk, 1.5 scoops ON 100% whey
370 cals, 6g fat, 26g carbs, 54g protein

Meal 5 (5:30) - 8 oz salmon, 1oz shot olive oil
580 cals, 41g fat, 50g protein

Meal 6 (7:30) - 1.5 cups cottage cheese
324 cals, 14g fat, 8g carbs, 39g protein

Meal 7 (9:30) - 2 scoops Dymatize 12 hour protein blend, 2 oz planters deluxe mixed nuts
600 cals, 35g fat, 24g carbs, 50g protein

Totals: 3716 cals, 151g fat, 254g carbs, 343g protein
Cal distribution Fat: 35% Carbs: 27% Protein: 37%

I pretty much eat the exact same things everyday minus the Mass XXX on non workout days where I try not to exceed 150G carbs. And also 2 cups of broccoli/spinach a day. Never really plug them into fitday though since they have a pretty negligible effect on macro/calorie totals.

I appreciate all the positive feedback guys. One question though, what qualities define good genetics as they pertain to bodybuilding? I've always believed that being an ectomorph and the fact that it's not easy for me to gain any kind of weight that my genetics aren't really ideal for bodybuilding as compared to a mesomorph who could gain more easily. The main things I like about my physique are my symmetry and small waist (30" right now).

As far as nutrition, heres a typical workout day.

Meal 1 (8am)- 1 cup oats, 1.25 cups milk, 1 scoop ON 100% Whey
529 cals, 9g fat, 65g carbs, 46g protein

Haha, I'll post a full update when I hit 230, which will mean I've officially gained 100 lbs while keeping fully visible abs the whole time without drugs :D

I'll leave this for now though. Currently ~224

If all goes well I plan on competing around this time next year.
