    So, I've been at this for a total of 4.5 years, but after some yo-yo action with my weight, I'm now the heaviest I've ever been (165 pounds @ 5'8"), although I've been pretty close to this before, I slid back down to 135 for a while. Deadlift max is 425. Haven't done 1RM for squat or bench in a while, but I did DB bench 70x8 today, and I squatted 335x3 to parallel on Monday.

    The original Prowler at all of 115 pounds in May 2001:

    I'd like to get to 180 and then decide from there, but I'm definitely still trying to gain weight. Diet wasn't anything excessive - I just tried to eat on a regular basis.

    Lookin good - think your tri's are growing nicely.

    The traps look like they are lagging a bit.

    back looks really good, but hit those traps

    and you'll prob. be fairly happy at 180 (i'm about that size), but who knows

    um, I've only been back like I meant it since July. I won an F&N contest back in 04 when I was going at it seriously, but that's a long time ago now, so I'm trying to get myself back in the game.

    Your lifts are pretty impressive considering the actual amount of muscle you're carrying.

    thanks (I hope :o). I see guys who are sometimes significantly bigger than I am lifting the same or less than me. I just like to push myself hard, especially with deadlifts and squats. I'm motivated by a friend who's a few inches shorter than me, 20 pounds heavier, and squats 600 and benches 450 (I've seen it).

    Nah man, you must be doing something right. Just keep eating and lifting hard and the rest will work itself out.

    um, I've been near this size before, and it's not beach season anyways....if I get big enough to the point where I want to cut, I will. My cousin and his wife got fat after they got married.....he looks really out of shape now. :o
