              I think you have a lot of potential, keep at the weights hard and start eating big time, your back has great shape now you need to add mass and thickness to the rest of your frame...

                Be more specific in what you are wanting feedback on, bro. I will gladly give you an honest critique but I wouldn't want to do that without knowing what you are trying to attain.

                Also, you really should move this thread into the critical assessment forum for others to give you their opinions. If you don't mind my moving it, say so, and I will move it over to that forum.

                      Well, I hope it doesn't come off as an ass kickin' but here is my opinion, bro:

                      First, I will say that your height vs. weight has you at a disadvantage in that if you were to strip bodyfat right NOW to about 5%, drop water and hit the stage, you would be hitting the stage somewhere around 170, give or take. That means that you would be a middleweight in a non-tested show at 5'11". Now THAT is an ass whoopin'. ; )

                      Okay, so you have about a year, correct? First priority is the legs. No matter your upper body development and even if you were the same size but only 5'5", your legs would get your ass kicked in a show. By the time you cut up and hit the stage, there wouldn't be much left on them leg bones, bro.

                      Next priority is basically just overall size. To do this, make damned sure you are recovering with enough rest, sleep, food, etc., and you should grow quite well, bro. I would re-assess in another 6 months to see where you are. You have some decent size through your chest, back and delts but you need to balance everything out especially the upper body vs. the lower body.

                      Can you do it? If you want to do it, you will. Only you know that, bro.

                      I wish you well and I hope my opinion helps.

                        Well, your back is obviously your strong point right now and your legs are your weakest point. I can see where surgery on the knee could damper on leg training. I think you have a nice shape overall, but you will definitely need a lot more mass to compete.

                          Ditto on all above comments: lots of potential!!!

                          You have very wide shoulders. Fill those out and bring the legs to match and you'll be a tough superheavy. Its a long road to haul, but it will be worth it...

                            thanks to everyone for their input and advice. i was planning on hooking up w/ dc at the beginning of july but my dog had to have surgery and it set me back quite a few $$$. i've pieced together a dc style workout routine and am trying to work on a diet but i'm sure it's nothing compared to the real thing. i'm just saving right now until i can afford it.

                              Powerlifting is another way to build great thick dense muscel mass.
                              ever see Gary Franks? there is nobody thicker or denser, or STRONGER, not even my boy Ronnie....
