That is awesome. Good job

Wow, what's your workout routine like? I'm probably the same build as you were before you started working out (6'1 - 165 though).

I try to keep it something like this:

Mon: Chest / Tri
Tues: delts, traps, ab
Wed: Biceps / Legs
Thurs: rest / ab's @ home
Fri: Back
Sat: Chest alone
Sun: Rest

I run 3 miles total ,to and from, on gym days. I've really had some good gains during the last 3-4 months when I've really started mixing up my excercises. Adding in resistance bands and strip sets were a big help. Fine tuning my diet is my next goal.

Have you started your training yet?

Kind of. I've been going to the gym on and off for about 2 years now, but I just can't keep the dedication. However these past few weeks I've been going 3 times a week. I've also been doing a lot of research into the best ways to bulk up, and I'm going to start going every day.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of exercises are you doing for each muscle group?

Like on monday, are you just doing bench press for chest?

Well my first point of advice is lock in your diet for what you want to do. That's easily 70% of the game. I went 6 months with no gains and it was fairly depressing. Once I took the time to count some calories and do some research the gains came fast.

Also going everyday might very well be overkill for someone just getting started. I'd shoot for 3-4 days a week, this so at the very least you don't burn yourself out and give your muscles time to recover.

There are a lot of different ways to split your workout Here's something I use sometimes:
Day 1: Chest and Triceps
Flat bench,incline dumbbells, push up's | rope pull down, skull crushers(wide grip/narrow grip),
Day 2: Back / ab's seated cable rows (i like using a wide bar), chin up, some machine that does a seated inclined isolation row
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Bicep's/traps/shoulders/ ab's preacher curl, 21's (http://abcbodybuilding.com/excercise/21'scurls.htm),alternatin g dumbbell curls, traps: shoulder shrugs (my trap's get ridiculous so I train them easy) shoulders: front/lat raises, dumbbell presses
Day 5: Chest/Legs, I train chest again because I gain rough there. Just straight up blast it with the benches and pushup's/ random leg excercises
Day 6: Rest

I mix in a bit of cardio as I need to keep up for rugby. But if you're going for mass gain to start I'd take it easy on that front.

Whew, lot of typing.

cliffs:
Get your diet to match your goals in order!
Hit the gym and allow time for recovery
Train ****ing hard

Hope that helped

Damn Snapple...

You're huge, but something doesn't look right. I mean, I think the proportions look off, and I can't put my finger on what it is. I want to say your shoulders look too small for your biceps or something, but I dunno. I also don't know how much you care about that sort of thing, heh

Nothing about how you look is "normal" Snapple. Not an insult, just an observation.

His biceps and chest are huge compared to everything else. That's what it seems to be anyway.
Snaps can you take a picture of yourself "normal" (not flexing or anything) with a shirt on?

hey snapz do you lift just cause you're obsessed and find it fun or do you compete or something? getting that yoked takes many years and an enormous amount of dedication I wouldn't think someone would keep it up 'just cause'.

also, i can't stop staring at your man cleavage. im totally gay.

my before pictures:




i am currently working on my abs, and trying to bulk up my chest a bit. also got a set of dumbells and started doing curls to increase size of biceps. weather is warming up so i will start running soon to lose the small amount of cushioning i have around my waist that's concealing my abs.

You look pretty slim as it is, just not cut.

I'd say start with compound movements like bent over rows for your back and biceps. Bench press for chest, incline and flat.

Then after the compound sets are done, work on the isolation movements, like curls, chest flies, etc.
