    I need you guys to tear me apart, I know I could be a whole lot bigger than this and I want to progress more.

    These pics are the results of 9 months of working out. I first started to get in shape (as in, no more ribs sticking out :hsd: ) for a school canoeing trip. I kept at it afterwords just because it felt really good to not look like a skeleton and it was a huge confidence boost and stress reliever to work out.
    I wouldn't say my routine is half-assed, but it wasn't exactly hard-core training. It consisted of:

    Day 1: Biceps, Chest
    Day 2: Shoulders, Triceps, Abs
    Day 3: Rest

    and repeat and repeat. Yeah, its missing something. Excercises were done entirely in my bedroom with a set of adjustable dumb-bells because I was living overseas and didn't have convenient gym access. I'm back in the US now and that is no longer a problem.

    Nutritionwise, I just ate normally, but a whole lot more and 5 meals a day. I did 5g of creatine a day for about 2 months in the begining, and have taken in about 2 whey protein shakes pretty much every day.

    I'm about to start college in a month, and I want to change my lifestyle and really get a whole lot bigger. I'll have unlimited gym access and all-you-can eat meal plan, I just need tips on what to change in my workout.

    Here are the pics:
    Before:

    Height: 6'1''
    Weight ~140 lbs.

    After 6 months:

    Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 155 lbs.
    [​IMG]

    Now (After 9 months)

    Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 165 lbs.

    Thats it. Helpful criticism would be appreciated. :big grin:

    Yeah, it looks like I just got out of Aushwitz or something. I didn't realize until I started lifting that my body mass index had been in "near starvation" range for about half my life...

    I fill out a t-shirt a lot better now, if nothing else.

    Go check out the archives for what used to be the stickies and find yourself a half decent regimen. i.e you need to work your legs, calves and back other wise you're gonna look silly and out of proportion.

    Once you get into a gym you should see your gains jump up alot faster. I was 6'1" and 140 on may 20th and im 163 now...with a trip to canada and three weeks off from lifting for work in that time. nice progress. I wish i had taken pics at 140 :wtc:
