    Is it actually possible to have such a slim frame and big arms - or do you think this is just photoshopped?

    it depends on how old you are and if you have the genes ... torso looks between 19 to 23 .... also it is a side shot with a quarter twist, so he will look a lot slimmer than he might actually be ...sort of an illusion

    'd say that his results are rather proportional, do not look "overdone" (aka steroided), and are reasonable with consistent and persistent exercise with healthy nutrition.

    Although I'm not as young as the guy in the pic, I have similar proportions which I attribute first to genetics and second to consistent and persistent exercise with healthy nutrition.

    One of the trainers at my gym is built like that - almost caricaturish.
    I'm friendly with him and ran into him in the locker room about a month ago. He was just working out and sweaty and couldn't get his shirt off.
    I said, "I'll help - we're friends right?" and helped pull his shirt off of him.
    His body was much better than I had thought - big arms and a tiny waist. I took a chance and made a fuss over his body.
    I just can't forget it.

    eagermuscle saidTHAT'S a slim frame?

    lol
    yes, Not a slim frame
    and yes, it's possible
    and yes, it's photo-shopped.

    You've been here sense 08; there are plenty guy's that look better than that, with bigger arms--some of them not complete douches; ask them.

    Really disappointing when guys take the shortcut and Photoshop 123RF on their bodies. Sheesh. icon_mad.gif

    Well, I'm genetically as thin as he is - just lacking in muscle. I'm planning on starting a gym and wondering what's possible for me.

    ... y'know, something to aim for!.
    I'm optimistic, despite some chaps saying he looks shopped!
