can a normal person ever compete with a genetically gifted person who has a V-taper?
>Other one has strong af core
>Other one just wants to be a male barbie doll
If klokov wanted to be weak bitch, he'd have a big v-taper 2. I'd really like to see back of that left guy, probably zero lower back
Given a choice between being a faggot and being fucking Klokov you choose the former. pls an hero
>tfw didn't get a god tier v taper like op
Why shouldn't I kill myself just right away?
V taper is for shaven gay porn, anything else is for manly men. Your call.
Isn't that Prometheus?
It's just each to their own in this scenario c'mon lads
I mean I've always liked and wanted a body like Kocklove cause im a raging heterosexual
but Promo got dat der aesthetics, and it's not even like it's a twink cause he's got joocy legs and traps of a cobra
n o h o m o homie
Eat a dick sandwich on a v taper plate feggit
Either a faggot or an internet 'woman', either way I'm done here..
>tfw being compared to klokov and I know I am unworthy
I really don't get the point of this thread though desu, are you wanting to look more like me him? I've spent 3.5 years lifting naturally and I'm no where near his level in any regard, but I have tried to improve what I can
>pic related, unflexed
Also thanks bro
Your D&D club must find your triceps very impressive.
Why is it so hard to admit that klokov is fatter than the guy on the left (Prometheus)?
If Klokov cut down to 10% he'd have a v-taper too and you fags would have a circlejerk
Zyzz had a pretty beefy core he was just 8% bodyfat and had broad as fuck shoulders. You can't tell me that looks "girly"
If you think Klokov somehow looks far objectively worse than the left than you are a massive faggot. Sorry.
Jesus christ this board is ridiculous. If you lift enough and stay relatively lean everyone on this board can looks WORLDS better than 99% of the male population. Pathetic how much splitting of hairs you guys do over the silliest shit
Women aren't Bodybuilding judges lol. Nor is life a BB event. Both guys look great and both would get massive amounts of attention from men and women alike for their physiques. You angsty high schoolers need to go outside lol.
Of course, lightning makes such a huge difference though - but, I do seem to have more lower pec development and also need more more development between my pecs so thanks for bringing that to my attention
Would post a side on picture of pecs but jesus christ I already feel like a cam whore or something trying to validate myself for no reason
You have a fair point, I don't agree with everyone ITT as there are obvious differences for obvious reasons and it seems people are turning a blind eye to that
Nah I'm in a pretty good state these days, stopped drinking etc for the most part and moved on with life, set some new goals (learning code and looking into the possibility of doing a masters for software or mechatronics eng)
I'd love to go to the beach more but tfw australia and sun fucks my shit up as a pale person of german/euro bloodline
god he looks fucking terrible, lol OP's pic is perfect lighting and angle, meanwhile the one he uses for Klokov is in broad daylight and center.
>both would get massive amounts of attention from men and women alike for their physiques
klokov would get much more attention just because of how much bigger he is. Obviously prometheus, you're aesthetic as fuck mate but the size difference really doesn't come across in pictures.
I know JPS had a good 20kg on Klokov but looking at pic related you wouldn't say he was 6'4 125kg, because you don't have a normal person standing next to him
The point was just that even if you were sitting at that 10-15 and not 18-25 which is more realistic, it wouldn't be worth a mention you're there "year round" lol.
fuck that is a mammoth
and yeah exactly, I do like to an extent that I can hide my gains and wait until it's appropriate and then catch a lot of attention, but you're very correct with everything you said
>tfw stuck with my shit lanky arms
It's not all green grass bros
I'm still DYEL as fuck but do I have potential for a delicious V taper?
OHP 90 3x5
Bench/Pendlay Row 140 3x5
Power Clean 115 5x3
Olympic style squats 180 3x5
Deadlift 210 1x5
From what I understand the V-Taper thing is genetic. Some people have it, some people don't. I've seen pics of chubby guys with a fucking V-Taper.
Also, why are you showing us a picture of your back? You know the V-Taper is something that you can only see from the front, right?
>says "Staymad, permabulker"
>point out that I'm specifically NOT a permabulker
>lel you must be 18-25 it's more realistic, y even mention 10-15% year round
God I hate you people
>You know the V-Taper is something that you can only see from the front, right
are you thinking of the adonis belt? A v-taper is just having shoulders/yoke significantly wider than your hips/waist
Holy fuck. These are the people contributing to these threads and offering advice. People so stupid they don't even know the difference between an adonis belt and a v-taper. Slap yourself.
Nice steroids. Maybe you should up your dosage- you haven't made no gains in a year.
Top fucking kek. Look ye here. Show ready, shredded Klokov
What do you not see on him?
An exaggerated V-taper. Probably because he's spent the better part of his life as an olympic lifter and training for explosive strength alone. To expect him to suddenly transform his physique and excel in something for which he's never trained for is just silly.
good torso m8, just work on the rest and you're good (maybe pecs idk from this angle)
I do admire my hammies from time to time but I'm gonna have to pass
Are you listening to yourself?
>no gains in a year
Seems legit dood, just another DYEL shitposter, how can I tell?
>thinking you need roids to attain my physique
This was my first 18 months (was auchwitz) and probably my peak on the right, I was more obsessed with my training then, I still haven't gotten back to 74/75kg (though my strength is better now)
Although I should point out I went down to 68kg between then and now between wisdom teeth, sickness, getting lazy cause gf and uni
Heil! If you are seeing this image, you have been reached by the Aryan Ayylmao of Extraterrstrial Diplomacy.
Say "Heil Gains Lmao" if you wish to keep your gains and serve under His glorious regime. Lest you will be cast into the fires.
Klokov can't be sub 10 % bodyfat because that's where the strength level diminishes in favor of looking more cut. Roids or not. Too cut means you're gonna lose some strength. Besides, they probably have a 30 kg difference. Klokov is strong as fuck and pictures without perspective are dumb.
It's called having a strong core. You don't clean & jerk 500+ lbs with a 28" waist. The dude competed at 231lbs / 5'11 bone dry, he's got so much more mass it's not even comparable
179cm tall, how skelly are you? I think in the pic I posted I was 55, like I said really don't remember the numbers but it was mid maybe late 50s, but I really did have ribs etc showing when I started (implying I'd take roids at the age of 18)
I don't have very visible abs so I had a bit of fat, just vascular (which I wasn't always so vascular), I started my real gym shenangins with some kind of 'muscle up' challenge I did with my friend, my 12 week progress was pretty insane actually (even considering the different angles etc)
Think I'd been lifting around 3 years in that pic. Was around 185-190lbs then.
Idk m8, I do weighted decline for like 3x10 a couple times a week and eat pretty clean. I do a 4 day split with focus on big 3 with accessories. What is this new husbando meme?
179cm is like 5'10 or 5'11 if you're lenient, try again
shiet solid progress already, you will need to put on A LOT of muscle for it to show though since I imagine you have lanky proportions
u mean bench bro? l m a o nah i guess you mean a core exercise?
Also can i pls have a picture of your routine mang? if you have time or something
Also, im not gay or anything but it's like a more attractive bearmode for gaymen/women n-no homo but you'd be what they call a 'daddy' no homo
Sorry should've specified weighted decline sit ups with like 25lbs behind my head, maximal angle. Also I do hanging leg raises.
Sorry man don't really have routine with me on my phone heading to work atm. Got it on my laptop though.
Lol haven't been on /fit/ for months but ya I get it. Thanks m8, I'll be your daddy..n.no homo.
I thought all guys have a v-taper I'm a fatty and I have a v-taper....
>If Klokov cut down to 10% we would have a circle jerk
It may be hard for you to understand this but not everybody wants to have a super cut v-taper with veins everywhere. It doesn't look strong at all. Kolkov in his current state looks basically perfect. He is like a huge properly proportioned body builder that makes him retain his "human" look, but also has a nice face (no homo)
I don't want to be a "sick cunt," I want to be fucking massive.
well heres the thing...
klokov is/was an olympic weightlifter, and focuses on building strength, speed, and stability. his body is a function of his sport, which is technically demanding and not easy. he could care less about a v taper because it doesnt help him.
the faggot on the left is your average bro split homo that thinks lifting is for looking good naked, so he rarely does the barbell big three and develops any real strength. he hops on laotian kitten trading image boards and shitposts about v tapers looking shreddy completely ignorant to the fact theres woman with stronger lifts and stouter builds
the v taper is stupid! holy shit brah your waist to shoulder ratio is insane.
I'm 6'0" 132 lbs.
If I get out of skellington mode will my genes make me look ok?
that was my first 3 month progress, which was over 3 years ago
There isn't really anything I can do about it but thanks?
Glad I can never take these type of fags seriously
>cant take these fags seriously
are you seriously saying that the skeleton on the left is better than klokov?
how fucking delusional are you? the dude on the left has an alien looking core. im surprised they dont get blown over by the wind.
I went to the world weightlifting championships this year and ran into him everywhere. No homo but he looks absolutely fantastic in person, he isn't out of proportion at all
But he's definitely not 6'0.
Fig.1: A Prometheus stands in font of a ' dwarf door' , a mythic door constructed solely for dwarves under 5 feet of height.
Note the ample clearance
I'm not saying I look better than him at all, but it's hard for me to take anyone seriously when they take such an aggressive standpoint
But seriously for people who don't know doors are a standard height in australia (2040mm)
Guy on right looks better. When I first came to /fit/ I thought something like the guy on the left was aesthetic. But now I'm more into bigger cores and legs and thick backs. People that actually look strong. No homo
