You got boobs!
...rock solid boobs :p.
a variation of my most muscular, i can't decide whether to go the aesthetic route as seen in the first pic in this thread, or this way which will probably be more of an overpowering pose :wutyousay:
another variation. i didn't flex hard enough but it puts emphasis on my chest and wide clavicle structure.
btw we took blake's sick new avitar pic today too as well as the other pics in his havoc log.
you look like a greek statue bro!great development for being 19 years old,also you are a lucky to have braaq as a coach,the guy is a monster and it must be a hell of an inspiration/motivation to train next to him.
your tatoo is written in greek,do you know greek bro?And please ask you grandfather from wich part in greece you have your roots,just curious
good luck with your contest!
oh and one last thing...Greeks where the first people ever that trained and they
where the first to actually have muscular development.Stand true to your roots man!greek pride!when the rest of the world was hanging from trees(monkeys)we had a society with males that their physiques would be admired even today,and
the leaders\generals where fighting in the front line,not like know...
well bro i wish you all the best, right now it looks like you have a beach body, not really at the ripped stage where you need to be, no disrespect intended but you needed to start the prep about 16 weeks out, but you have 2 weeks, anything can happen in that time.. best of luck.

duality your chest is phenomenal and triceps out there, dont worry about your legs i can see through shitty lighting i think they look solid, i have no doubt you will do great, IMO after this contest i would work on your lats a bit thats the only place i think you may need a little work, cause your arms and chest are huge match it with a wide back your DBs will look awesome.
The pics are fine. I'd like to see some FB poses e.g. front/back relaxed though.
The following is no rant, I'm just stating my opinion. I think you have the mass to attend the contest and this first show will definately inspire you for more and be a learning experience. I say go for it, even if you won't hit the mark at your first show.
As for your condition, I'm sorry to say that you're not going to hit the mark this time around. There isn't enough time (and no Serb - anything cannot happen in 2 weeks). The reason you hold water is subcutaneous fat. If you strip yourself from fat, water retention will greatly diminish.
Using diuretics will thus not help much in your case, as the fat will keep blurring your cuts. And Blake - him starting too late doesn't change the fact that he's behind. We just take an objective stand and value that he's behind at this point. A little far behind actually. If you don't have lines in your legs even in blitz shots at this point, you're not going to make it.
Otherwise, your biceps seem to need work. I used a specific technique leading up to my last competition to help this. It can actually yield results very swiftly. Do 10x10 of e.g. BB curls (do not alternate between exercises) with descending loads - e.g.: 1st and 2nd set: 10 reps at 100lbs, 3rd and 4th set: 10 reps at 95lbs and so forth untill you reach 10 sets og BB curls. Do this at every session.
thank you for your honesty. however if you saw me in real life and pinched my skin (specifically the skin in my upper body) you would not be able to pinch anything. blake has done this and his remark was "damn your holding a lot of water" i do have a little fat around my lower back and in my inner quads but my upperbody has next to nothing in terms of fat. even though yes your right i should have more lines in my legs, they are pretty decent in the lighting at golds. leg cuts are some of the hardest to obtain i don't think i've ever seen a teen competitor with substantial leg defenition. but i did start too late and there's nothing i can do about that. but i'm dropping weight about as fast as i think possible. that last time i weighed myself was 3 days ago and i was 207, i just weighed myself today, 203. and overall i have lost 32 pounds in only 8 weeks time. i think your comparing my condition to your condition (which was fucking shredded man) and that's where i'm falling short. but i still envision myself coming in solid shape around 194-198.
and for the bicep work i will try that. so basically one giant drop set starting at like 110lbs sound about right? and just barbell curls and nothing else?
