    how long have you been continuously lifting? the whole 2 years?
    your upper pecs and traps look good.
    looks like you need to focus some more on shoulders
    cant really see your arms in the picture

    keep bulking for a little while longer
    you look like you could gain some more lean mass.

    what are your lift numbers and diet?

    add some supplemental shoulder lifts into other muscle group workouts.
    keep your shoulder day, but add in some raises or presses on other days.
    don't overdo it though

    also it sounds somewhat stupid, but practice handstands. they will build your shoulders well

    for the most part continuous... other then like a 4 month break or something... honestly, my workout is kinda half-assed right now, im mainly trying to cut up so i keep it to like 1 set 100s on chest, and i do like ladder exercises on biceps, where i go 40 to failure and continue 10lbs less to failure, and do 3 sets of that... i really work out pretty fucking hardcore, every exercise to failure...

    for shoulders i only really do press and lat raises.

    the picture really doesn't show it, but i've had a 4 pack of abs like pretty much my whole life.... they have just never been defined... which is so hard i end up giving up before it ever happens.

    :hsugh:

    Overall, it's a pretty big improvement. What kind of time span is that? What's your current routine and what are you doing for shoulders? And also, be careful with working until failure, I'm not sure how often you work out but that's a good way to overtrain and stall your progress.

    honestly i don't have a hardcore routine... im mainly just trying to lean up and maintain the muscle that i have. that is span of 2.5 years or so. and explain more about why you say what you do about failure... i've had good results from it so far so im curious as to what you mean.
