    Hi all, so right now I'm pretty happy where I am, but that's only because where I've been.

    I'm finding progress (and compliments) on my arms. My back and shoulders have broadened considerably, and I've leaned out a bit. I still have a gut, especially when beer is added, but it's something I hope to tackle before summer when I've beefed up further. I weigh 162 as of this morning at the gym.

    Where I want to go is to develop further my arms, forearms, and especially legs. My boyfriend is happy with me the way I am because he loves me and blah blah blah icon_biggrin.gif but he bikes everywhere everyday and has an amazing lower body icon_biggrin.gif.

    Anyway, here are the pics and don't mind the shit-eating grin that looks like is about to split across my face:

    I need feedback on my workout routine, so here it is. I borrow liberally from Dorian Yates' Blood and Guts routine posted to bodybuilding.com:

    Chest and Triceps:

    Warm-up and stretch (important for my rotator cuff)
    Decline bench press
    Incline dumbbell press
    Tricep Press
    Tricep Pushdown
    Dumbbell flyes or pec flyes
    Tricep Dips (good for finishing off since it gives me a good indicator of how exhausted my muscles are)

    Back and Biceps:
    Warm-up and stretch
    Dumbbell pullovers
    Close-grip pulldown
    One-arm rows
    Deadlifts
    Concentration curls
    Straight bar curls
    Hammer curls
    Note: I have to hit my arms really hard or else I find there's little development. I want HUGE arms..

    Legs:
    Warm-up and Stretch
    Leg extensions
    Leg press
    Smith-machine squat
    Leg curls
    Stiff-legged deadlifts
    Calf press
    Seated calf press
    Note: I'm trying to find better ways to hit my calfs, my legs are pitiful I find. If anyone has pointers I'd love to hear them.

    Shoulders and Arms:
    Warm-up and stretch
    Arnold dumbbell press
    Front lateral raises
    Dumbbell rear flyes
    Shoulder press
    Tricep Pushdown
    Tricep press
    Preacher curls
    Concentration curls
    Dumbbell 21s (to failure)


    Now is shoulders something to be done with arms or something else? I've heard chest exercises...

    Pointers, criticism and feedback all welcome.
