    :db: Showdown: TheLemonSong vs. Shadow! :db:

    Well in another thread TheLemonSong suggested we have a little friendly competition. We will compete by comparing photos and posting routines and diets. This contest will be carried out during the duration of 3 months. At the end of three months the board members will decide on who has the best physique, who has improved the most over the past few months, who is the most consistent and also a best bodypart will be picked out for each competitior(do you agree LemonSong). During this time we will rely on the friendly advice of the forum members to point out tips from getting better photos to what bodypart needs to improve the most.

    Each competitor will post on a byweekly basis, photos, current vital stats, and current working poundages. Also a basic diet breakdown will be given but not in too much greater detail. For a more of a day to day account of what each competitor is doing please consult their journals(I will enter the links here at a later date).

    (All the above is subject to confirmation from TheLemonSong).

    I shall be posting my first entry later today. :db: :db:

    I've seen other bulletin boards with completely different topics, but they have certain forums especially for this. This should be rather interesting.

    Just a few suggestions. The photos will play a big part in determining best physique, so I would suggest that both of you agree on certain bodybuilding poses, as well as comparable distances from the camera when taking photos. I would also suggest reading Andi's tips on taking better photos if you haven't already. A few examples for poses would be: front lat spread, front double biceps, rear lat spread, rear double biceps, side chest, side triceps, abdominal & thigh, etc. Good luck!

    I cant wait for this one !!!

    Id have to say make sure the photos are fair. If one of you has a top of the range camera and the other a webcam, that aint gonna be right.

    Other then that, good luck !


    LLLLEEEETTTTSSSSSSS GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

    I think we ought to stick to just three standard pictures.
    Front view arms flexed.
    Back view arms flexed.
    Side view like John does (we can measure our intense gamefaces! ;))

    I'll hopefully be able to post some pix later today.

    Lets start w/ these three basic poses and then as the competition progresses we can add others.

    It'd be illegal NOT to place bets! Warm up your bookies folks, this is gonna be a good one!

    So, if I put all my money on you, can you guarantee that you'll win?

    If I win the bet I'm gonna buy a dictionary! Gotta learn how to spell "illegal" sometime...

    I agree..after reading this...I challenged my friend to a similar dual. I give u guys credit to do this on a public forum. I cant seem to even work up enough courage to post pictures on here. I guess WHEN I reach my goal it will be alot easier to post before and after pics. :nod:

    Before we start putting down paychecks, I think we at least need to see some preliminary photos.

    don't you think guys? They can work out all photo schematics later, but lets see those prelims.

    I liked the lats, you have a good start on upper body. Too bad, you don't have any legs, an accident?

    Work the arms, slow and hard, build the ribcage with breathing squats and one dumbell pullovers.
