  • Critical Physique Assessment Needed

    I'm competing in September and know my Arm's & Ab's need serious work. I'm working Arm's at the beginning of each workout. I'm still researching DC's Training Philosophy.

                      Heres what I can see:

                      Abs definitely need to be dialed in, but you have time for that.

                      Arms could be filled out more, and a little larger...

                      Your lats are very wide, very nice lat spread..... Almost ahead of everything else. But I would work on more thickness for the lats.

                      Traps...... You need more traps definitely. Hit them hard and heavy.


                      There is what I can see from those pics.

                        Thanks Crank.

                        I've been reading DC's threads for the last 3 days and have decided to go for it and bring up those weak areas in the process.

                          Paula and Randy have already given their opinions so here comes Simon to give his. LOL

                          Seriously, I call it the way I see it, bro. You posted in here for a reason so here goes:

                          Overall, you are faily balanced. Yeah, your arms could be bigger, blah, blah, blah but what strikes me is simply the lack of thickness throughout muscle groups. There isn't that "size" factor that jumps out at you - roundness to muscles, etc.. Now, of course, you aren't extremely lean so this will improve a bit as you lean down but I am concerned that when you do get the bodyfat down to very low levels, you are going to end up quite a bit smaller and "thinner". By this I mean, some guys tend to look bigger and bigger as they get smaller and smaller. There is an illusion created by the joints getting smaller and this makes your muscles look rounder, fuller and just plain bigger. I am not convinced that this will happen in your case, judging by the relative lack of thickness to begin with. You will probably end up with very good lines and shape but you may end up looking quite "thin".

                          I think that DC training style could help you make some solid improvements before starting your prep. This idea is a good one, in my opinion.

                          I am not saying that you could or would not do well in competition as I don't know your stats or anything. I also don't know if this is your first show or if this is a higher level state show, either. I would say, as a bit of advice, if you haven't competed before, go with a low level, local show. Condition your ass off but not at the expense of your hard earned muscle and see where the chips fall. If you are considering a higher level show, don't expect to place all too highly simply due to the lack of overall thickness/size.

                          Just my opinion bro and I am just trying to be helpful with this critique.

                            Skip,

                            Thanks, I appreciate your honesty.

                            I'm 36 y/o 5'9" @ 202lbs in these pic's. I did 2 AAS cycles 1987-88 and have been drug free since. I've competed 6 times in Natty shows without placing higher than 3rd in my class. You were right on. I disappear while prepping do to lack of thickness, etc.

                            I'm a few days into my second M1T cycle and will incorporate DC's training style for at least 6 months before I even consider competing again.

                            Here's a competition pic from October, 2001.

                            Thanks again,

                            Chuck

                              Shit, you didn't say you were natural! Or maybe I missed it. That changes things a bit. I like that you can condition.. cuz.. I am a condition kind of guy. I think you have the right idea working with DC and if you can condition that new DC muscle, I think you will not see many, if any, 3rd place natty trophies anymore.

                              Keep us posted on your progress with DC. I LOVE to see natty guys work with DC, too. Their progress is just as impressive and alot of guys think they can't benefit from DC style training if they are natural and that is just not true.
