    EDIT: Pics on page 2 as well

    I was walking out the door to go study and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and decided to snap a couple pics on my new Iphone 3G-S. All in all I am pretty disappointed with the Iphone's camera. My Blackjack which is 3 years old took better pics to be honest.

    Arm vascularity focusin' outta control bros. And the other was just a quick triceps shot showing off the Horseshoe (or in my case, more like an upside down heart).

    Only 3 weeks into the cut so more pics with shirt off and such will come when I lean down some more in a month.

    Notice my backup ballin' ass coffee maker too. And if you look close in the second pic you can see my middle-school picture of me holding a basketball all pimped out gettin' ready to cross niggas up.

    It's funny because my first several years of lifting when I was a bit chubby I always envied kids who had forearm and bicep veins. Now I've got them everywhere.

    Serious vascularity going on.

    Also, make sure there's no grease or lint on the camera lens. I need to blow off / rub down my blackberry every once in awhile otherwise it comes out like that.

    Good call man. Thanks.

    I'll polish it up and see if that helps. I'd hate to think my brand new Iphone took worse pics than my 3 year old Black Jack.

    They don't tend to do very well with high contrast either, avoid real bright sunlight (like the background, or bulbs above a mirror) or the auto adjust screws up the quality.

    Yeah, I noticed the auto-adjust tends to confuse itself easily :rofl:

    Not sure actually... Never measured. Arms are around 17.5" cold... just over 18" pumped if that helps for a comparison.

    Edit:

    Just busted out the measuring tape. A hair over 14" it seems. Kinda hard to measure your own forearm though, lol.

    That's flexed, thickest part, couple inches below the elbow.

    you short guys make me jealous. Mine is almost 1.5 inches bigger and looks nothing like that, obviously your leanness helps out a bit

    195ish - 200. Gym scale is reading 195, home scale is reading 199. Still holding some abdominal and chest fat (at least more than I'd like).

    Shooting for 185 @ 8%

    Then a bulk this fall/winter up to 210 @ 11/12%

    How tall are you?
    They blow up with a pump so I am probably looking at about/near 15" with a pump.

    Being shorter (5'9" here) definitely has its advantages when taking pictures. Especially if you're lean. It's hard to gauge size through a picture on an internet forum. Not to say that I am small (I feel I am pretty well built guy) but there is no denying that I look bigger in a picture than I would in person.
