    I've been out of the gym for the past 6 weeks because of a torn tendon sheath in my wrist.. it still hurts, but i decided to go back and try shoulders today.. i felt the pain and i'll be icing it and take ibuprofen, but I think I can work through it and just not push too hard for the next few weeks.

    I got bigger..thicker.. and definitely a bit fatter.. I'm on an anti-e so I'm not retaining as much water as I was before.. i was up to about 186 and now without excessive (though I'm still carrying some) water, I am down to about 179-181.. time to bulk up to 200 :noes:

    Here we go:

    definitely thicker, more muscle under the blubber I now have. I wish my waist was back down to 29" like it used to be.. 34" ftl.

    my fat back

    :ugh: -- i dont know how to flex my legs, not that i really have any muscle on them anyway.. ohs well -- they'll grow with time.

    and i forgot a front double bi, so I'll do one tomorrow or something.

    Feel free to say whatever :o

    and for old time's sake..

    Hey Mike, keep at it. You're obviously a dedicated person to keep working out given the crappy genetics you were dealt.

    Hey mike, good to have you back.

    Your pgoress is really but if you want some critique I'd say that your triceps are lagging. In the back double bi pose, the underside of your arm is completely flat.

    Also your legs are terrible but I'm sure you know that already. Do you know what's wrong with your hips? You can dead almost 400 but can't (or daren't) squat over 135. What about hack squats? They might work for you.

    Good luck working through the injury and being able to squat again.
