    Well I'm about to start working out so I thought I'd post some pics to mark the occasion. :hsd:

    I'm 5"11 and ~175lbs. Well here they are...

    [​IMG]

    Most Muscular
    Back
    Calf
    Quad

    I'm hoping to bulk up to over 200 then cut and try and get down to a lean 185. But I'll see how I'm looking and then decide. :x:

    Haven't decided what routine I'm going to do yet. Either thinking of THIS old routine of Diablo's but throwing in some squats and deads.
    OR I'm going to give that base routine of christophers a go. :bigthumb:

    Only supplement I'm going to take will be 100% whey protein.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Bobble head? You mean square? Yeah it does look funny in that pic :)

    Good question about the arms, I just measured them.
    Wrists: 6.5" (I think this is pretty bloody small?)
    Forearms: 13"
    Bicep: 14"

    I'm 21 now. I used to workout when I was 16-18, but then I met my GF and stopped going to the gym :( (Along with a broken wrist which required surgery for a plate to be put in) :(

    Back then I was 165lbs and a couple of inches shorter and a lot more ripped.

    relatively speaking, your chest and traps are smallest, so they need to play catch-up!

    i could post positive comments too, i'm really not an asshole :) but when i post pics i always read the negatives more carefully

    You fucking idiot! ;) You've blown my cover now, how the hell am I ever going to afford protein now? :fawk:

    I agree with you all, my chest and back are going to need the most work. Hopefully the gains will come quick. :x:

    Party time... Time to start eating like a mofo and lifting heavy! Come on gains!

    Does anyone have any tips for a routine? More to the point, do you guys think either that one of christophers or Diablos are suitable?

    Did you ever have the plate removed? I just recently (December 29) had a plate and six screws put in my hand. It still hurts when I make a fist or pull a lateral movement with my palm facing down. I'm worried I might have to get another surgery to get the metal out, but I won't know until next Thursday. So how did yours turn out... mine is really making lifting difficult.

    Mine was a bit sore for a while. The plan was always to take it out after a year. So after I year I went back under and they took it out. Lucky they did it when they did because as it was, my bone had already started to grow OVER the plate at they had to spend a bit of time chipping it all off to get it out! (Even the tops of the screws were filled with bone!) :eek3: :hsd:

    But that said it's now apparently stronger than ever now. It doesn't get sore anymore either. Although I have about a 4-5" scar which starts at the crease of my wrist/hand and runs straight down it!

    Best of luck with the recovery. Hope you had a good surgeon. I went for the best I could find. Sure it was a bit of a hassle but well worth it. :bigthumb:

    Thanks man! :bigthumb:

    My surgeon was pretty good, he was recommended to me by my boxing buddies. :big grin: He said that he had done stuff to Holyfield's shoulder :eek3:

    So did it get sore again when you removed it? I would think it would since you'd have holes in your bone from the screws and stuff. I'm worried that my range of motion might be limited because of it (the plate) so I'm thinking I may need to have it removed.

    I'm in the process of getting hammered with dozens of bills from all over the place. God insurance is so much fun to deal with. :mad:

    When they removed it, it hurt for a couple of weeks. It's because they had to dig around so much to scrape all the bone off :(

    The holes in your bone heal up pretty quickly I think. Although it did take a few months to get the full range of motion back. But with any luck the same should happen with you too!

    I'm glad I had private health insurance! Fuck the public system!
