so ive decided to post some offseason pics. here's my story:
i've been training for 5 years now. im 5'9 and when i first started working out i was 125. im now right at 190-195. i am a true ectomorph. gaining muscle and fat comes extremely hard for me. im completely natural (no juice, PHs, fatburners ever)

ill critique myself before everyone else gets a chance so you know what i'm trying to work on :). my chest is small. im working on putting size on my arms, especially my triceps in particular the long head to give them more of a hang in my double bis shots. my back and shoulders are relatively strong points for me. im really trying to thicken my legs up and put some serious size on my hamstrings.

I think overall you have very good aesthetics. The only aspect of your physique that really stuck out to me was hamstrings.

When you squat, do you get crazy hamstring soreness? Not sure how your body structure is, and wondering how squats impact you with DOMs.

You do have some good looking quad lines and thickness. Great job overall.

BTW, damn inspirational as well!

Dude you've been working and it shows, nicely done.

Take this how you want, since my legs are a genetic gift, but my hams didn't really start getting that hand with the line running down them until i started incorporating romanian DL's, and lunges seemed to help to

You look great, especially for off season. Keep pushing Eric!

i do those. ive been getting away from RDLs as they werent doing much for me, and i find good mornings to be working better. my range of motion is way too short on them b/c my hamstrings are very inflexible and my discs are fucked up and it aggravates them. ive done 315 for 15 before easily and my hamstrings were less sore than 225 for 6 on GMs
