Oh, and also some of this may have been while I weighed 170 lbs, but that hardly makes a lot of difference. Not even sure what my weight is atm, as my weight is out of battery.

I'm 165ish at 5'6" and mediums are on the small size. I have to get everything tailored.

They're just rubber bands. Get the cheapest you can find.

If you're in the states, elitefts has sales on those things all the time.

As I've already said M is usually too long on me.

I still need to learn the rules but it looks really fun icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif thanks.

You're pretty big and not too tall.

I'd probably chuck you in at prop or hooker. Blindside flanker if you get your fitness up.

I'm 175 and started wearing a large. Mediums are tight on my neck and i can't reach forward in then due to lats
post #50109 of 57266
medium for t shirts and large button ups for me. I still got a good 5lbs of muscle to put on my upper body then i'll be real content with where I'm at, will probably take me most of 2015.

lol that was my 4th session since I've started doing curls again. I mainly do it for grip strength. I haven't been doing any triceps in over a year, now. Shit, come to think of it, I haven't done any shoulders for over 6 months. :uhoh:

I'm not particularly one of those #aesthetics dudes but forgetting about shoulders is about the worst thing a guy who lifts can do, from a physical appearance POV. Looks fucking terrible when shoulders are proportionally small.
post #50113 of 57266

Shoulders get so much indirect work from a lot of exercises, though. I'm not advocating not training shoulders, but when I had shoulder problems I didn't really notice any loss of gains when it came to my shoulders as I could still do flat bench and back and that was 4-6 months without training shoulders (my shoulders never have been my strong point so there's that..). I think even Poliquin said something about you could go without training shoulders, but then again he's also said a lot of wrong things.

post #50114 of 57266
I think there are certain angles shoulders can be spared from. I don't do any front delt work as I bench 3-4x/week. I don't do any rear delt work as I hit that with horizontal pulling work. But laterals? I blast those with about 12 sets twice a week in various ways. Favorite shoulder move right now are Hammer Strength behind the neck presses.... they burn bad, I can barely do lateral raises afterwards. Really loads up the shoulders in a natural way.

I think shoulders are key though... def a mistake not to do them, they are so key for a strong physique (and protection from injury).

I'm all about aesthetics and I have so much trouble with my shoulders.
