Work with what you have

2 Weeks out from the 2010 NANBF Muscle Mayhem

Bodybuilding  is probably one of the most subjective sports and it usually comes down to what is favored at that time or day.  One of the things I have heard time and time again is that I may not carry a very aesthetic physique because of how I am built, shorter and blocker.  This creates an illusion of a thicker waist that is often not favored for symmetry.  One of the things I have been doing over the years is working with the genetics I have been delt and constantly striving to bring a improved overall package each year.  Doing this means placing more of an emphasis on some weaker areas in an all out effort to bring them up.  When it all comes down to it everyone is born with certain genetics, what you do with them is entirely up to you.

Had a great one and here's how it went...

*Warm-ups excluded

Hammerstrength Lat pulldown- 4x8
Ehlis row- 1x12@295 / 1x10@315 / 1x8@315 / 1x8@295*1x10@205
RG NG Pulldown- 4x8
Seated WG cable row- 3x10
Hammerstrength Pullovers- 4x10



  1. Absolutely true. To me that is what intrigues me about the sport. No two physiques are identical. Each person brings their own unique physiques to the stage. Often times the physiques vary greatly, yet can be equally stunning in their own right.

  2. Exactly Luis!! One thing that makes the sport so different than any other.
