Well - It's very clear from my pictures that I needed to be a LOT harder (leaner, by about 1.5-2% BF). I can argue the lighting was too bright as my trunks are a deep turquoise not baby blue and my skin coloring was akin to a black American - but no excuses, only improvements to come!

This was my opening pose for the evening show. My music was "Get Ready for This" LOL

Yes, We want the Xpose!!! LOL

Xcel,

Not only the biceps, the brachialis is really well developed. Lots of BO rows w/ palms down?...

The traps look very good, too. Deads, Squats or mainly lots of Shrugs?...

My friend, you look great. There are some things you can work on, but you know what those are. In a strange way, your strengths create your weaker body parts, e.g., your arms are very big, which make your shoulders look smaller than they are. Perhaps more than gaining tons of size (which we all want admittedly), you need to focus just as much on symmetry and balance, to create the illusion of size.

A note on your posing. I think you generally (at least from these poses leave yourself too open. Poses like your first and last ones, for instance, require massive size for effect. You can still create that X look having only 1 leg flaring out. For example, you might try the first pose with your left leg a tad more under your body, the right one out a bit more and the left hand tucked in tight behind the head, kind of like abs-behind-the-head pose. Also look at your hands - in many poses (see the last one), having the palms toward the body to make the profile of the fists small gives the best effect.

About the trunks - in addition to trying another color (a maroon might look good on you), look for a European-style cut with the sides coming up higher over your hope.

Hope this helps, Bro. Again congrats on the show. As I've said, you already won before it started!!!

-Randy

Easy to tell the pics are washed out (LOTS of light) which takes away some detail.

Nice to have a face err body to go with the dedicated Xcel. Keep up the good work buddy.

looking good excel! Arms are big, like Randy said and probably make your shoulders look smaller than they really are. I also am jealous as my fat ass has just started to see my abs! I think your abs are a good strong part. I hope I am in half as good of shape in 20 years!

Steak Helmet said:
53 my azz :)

Looking damn good...168lbs??? and 17" arms...good combo
What have you been drinking bro?!? j/k :)

I'm "only" 50 not 53!

I weighed in Friday evening at 158 pounds and may have been as much as 160 after carb load. It just seems like carb load would be more effective if one could drink along with taking in carbs?!?

On Monday morning I weighed 172 pounds and really didn't "binge" on anything!

Wow xcel! You looked GREAT:D Awesome for 50, none of that sagging skin ;) I have seen a few contests and all of them had sagging except for maybe 2 guys. Great job!

Awesome Xcel !! Forget 50...go most anywhere and try to find a 30 year old that looks as good. Remember, it's good to have a critical eye that drives you to further perfection, but take time to enjoy your current success. Well done!

2 things.

Xcel, great work bro, and

1) I hope I'm in that good a shape in 15 years (when I'm 50), and

2) I don't think I'll ever have enough nerve to stand on stage in posing trunks, :p

You look damn good ! Be proud!

What homono said re posing. You need to take some pics of your poses, sit back and analyse them like an artist. Pick a line (like art) or a form, and make sure it flatters your physique. The first one above does not, but that doesn't mean it is easy to work out! GEt that right, add some size, and you'll be soon ready to conquer (even if it takes you till 75!). IronMike
