I thin most would agree....
Thank you for the critiques everyone, I know the pics kinds sucked. I did not come in 100% and really messed up on my carb up and water depletion. It was my first time and with some help from JB among others I hope to rectify that. I have made some great improvements since that show two summers ago especially since I started HIT a year ago. Keep the critiques coming good or bad even though these are rather old, I like training with the thought that I will be judged eventually. Keeps the fire going.
damn a lot of e-fight in here ... in my opinion and from these pics i've seen, Duality's chest looks better/fuller than Braaq's (even if some of you say that holds water..bla bla). It's a shame that Braaq's pics are from a different angle esp the FDB, cus you can't compare them..but seems that both of you guys have a good condition and structure...and Duality in that FBD looks great ..nothing wrong with the genetics of his abs :wutyousay:
so that's only my opinion ..Duality better chest and maybe arms,and Braaq def better legs..cuts and overall (only from what i've seen ..i can't judge delts back .etc)
looking forward to some side by side pics in the future..and some back pics as well for a better comparison
both of you look great for your first show that's for sure, just keep doing a good job, you two have the structure for success in bodybuilding imo, and stop fighting
lol at the e-drama...
As far as the comparison goes, your conditions were even to be fair. Can't really compare the pics for size on stage because Braaq's shots have a bad angle to the camera it was taken at. The only way we could asses this is the side by side shots of you two which i know wont be for a while but i look forward to then. Until then guys, keep training hard and getting bigger
But i must say you both did look good for your first show, wether Jason came into the show retaining water or not, he did look in good condition.
No way to judge this comparison. Different places, different lighting, different shots. Both have strong and weak points like anybody but one thing is sure, both are blessed with some great genetics. I would kill to snag a couple of body parts from each one of you and combine in some crazy conditioning. Neither were as lean as they could have been, neither were as dry as they could have been, no sense in arguing beyond that conclusion. Furthermore, both have extensive knowledge in what to change for next time and both had excellent showings for their first show. If both of you guys could nail some "tumbleweed dry" conditioning with yall's size, it would be a site to see that comparison side by side.
oh and btw, for the record i think duality got some great abs, along with an awesome physique the same goes for braaq, both got some strong and some weaker parts, but both are blessed in the genetic department and obviously have put in the work. keep going at it brothers, and dont let this bickering ruin ur training. i mean, i had a training partner, and although avoiding comparing eachother is impossible, u shouldnt let it get to ya, we are all different, and should just be happy for eachother and support eachother instead of rivaling.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
This is a terrible thread. Relationships have been broken, hard things have been said. The fuck is wrong with you people ?
I thought us Russians were evil and hard headed people, but how have I been proven wrong by this thread is unspeakable. Both have good physiques, but I thought you both were bulkier and more shredded. Anyway, all this drama over bodies ? Imagine if this was actually some sort of important discussion were you had been arguing about intelligence !! Imagine that !!!
My opinion ? Nice bodies, arrogant pricks. I still like you both, but as I see it, this thread was pointless and only brought ignorance into this forums.
Okaaaaaay, the internet is serious business guys !!
for the record, blake and i are fine. we went to a hallween party (with the best costumes ever) and it's all good.
and tweak i called you an idiot because: a. i was in a bad mood that day b. i don't get your comment it at all, back in high school that's all i was known for was my sixpack (this was before i really got into bodybuilding) so...yeah.
but thanks dudes for the comments on the photos. this is as good as we can do right now
