    Hello gentleman,

    Was not sure if this was the right category to put this thread in, but figured it was as good as any. One of the main reasons I joined this site was to gain some insight into general physical fitness. That being said, I am looking to get some feedback (both positive or negative/constructive criticism) about my progress thus far; I've been lifting weights for about 2 years now. So, I'm thinking anyone interested can use my pictures as a telestrator like the plastic surgeons do. I can add some back or leg shots too if that would help anyone out. Looking for areas of improvement, and exercises/routines that can help fill in the deficits. Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help me out.

    -Chris

    Hey Chris!

    You look great! It's tough to give advice without knowing your goals.... Are you looking for size, functional strength, overall muscular look.... If you could pin it down the guys in this community will come through for you....

    Slainte,
    Jeff

    I always say in order for others to give you tips, you have to know what you want and what your goals are and what is your ideal look. Pics would help too*. You would know better because you are a 'medicaljock', so you are used to knowing what you want.

    I think my ultimate goal would be a solid/ripped 170ish, so combination of size and maintain some level of definition.

    The trick is going to be finding a balance between your cardio and weight training/ eating. The cardio will keep you ripped but will eat into the rapidity of your muscle gains. I'd start playing with reducing your cardio a bit while increasing your calories over a few weeks. Make sure you are getting s solid protein meal in while in the 30 minute "magic window" post exercise also.

    Hope this helps. Keep us updated!
