Delt to biceps tie-in is inherited from Dexter Jackson, isn't it? :P
lmao! I'm doing Phil faces when I pose, almost lol, so that's why I take the pic from the neck down.
Here is my normal face. Actually I have a beard now. Let it grow for the past 5 weeks or so.
And finally the Roelly/Phil tricep striations are coming in nicely. From the first day when I first started bb, triceps where my fav bodypart. That's why my fav. bb'ers when it comes to arms are Roelly/Kevin/Phil/Flex. I really tried everything I've seen in the mags/videos/articles to bring them up and I will continue to work on them until they will be my best/freakiest bodypart (next to delts).
I'll post both pics with the flash on and off. In the natural lighting they look way better, and you can see more striations, but as you know some pics/quality don't show you everything.
Anyways, here are a few pics:
From last week. @ the start of the 11th week.
From yesterday, at the end of the 11th week of dieting.
After several weeks - 6+ weeks - with NO cheat meals, not even once, today I was thinking that is time for one haha. The reason for staying so focused and concentrated on my diet was to test my limits, my discipline. To see how bad do I want it, and how much can I stay on my diet. I could have gone at least 1-2 weeks more without any cheat meals, but I said what the hell, I deserve it, so I had a large turkish pizza kebab with all the salsa's available.
All the meat is covered in different salads, tomatoes..etc. It was amazing lol!
A few years ago, back in 2007 when I was doing kickboxing, after only a year of training my coach waspushing me, saying that I should compete, that I'm ready, I'm doing great bla bla. I felt like I wasn't ready back then, and didn't really want to step in the ring, but I did it for my coach in the end. The results was 3rd place from 8 guys, in the -80 kg class (I was 78kg), and I was not happy at all. I lost to a guy who had 7 years of competitions experience, and he also won the my class&overall. So that's why, I'm a huge critique of myself. When I think I will look good enough, then I will compete to win.
Man, after years of training, motivation, coming especially from bb vids and such, I actually tried to visualize like most bb'ers are saying (Arnold, Levrone, Kai..etc), and see myself how I'd like to. Visualizing myself, ripped and with veins on my quads. That was my goal since May 2012 or so. After only 1 month of focusing on the quads, and a clean diet, I've seen the first 2 veins in my right quad. Then, those results helped me even more, motivating me to go for more, and not quitting, so after the 7-8th week of dieting, I could see a lot of veins in my quads. Trust me, no matter how hard it was the diet, it's such an amazing feeling when you know you've accomplished your goals.
So keep visualizing and train hard!
So, guys, I was thinking if some of you are interested, I could make this thread something like a Q&A with me, and you can ask anything related to diet/training and so on.
Also I was thinking about posting pics with some of my meals. I have a lot of them since 2010 haha. Lots of cheat foods, and also some clean, diet meals.
