Yep, was thinking the same thing. I think your body will respond well to consistent weight training and a good diet. You have good natural mass in your legs so that's half the job already done.

Smash it hard and reap the rewards.

Thanks guys I'm hoping for a really good year if I can stay consistent without injuring myself.

Ive decided to pull out of this at the moment, maybe ill post my end of year pictures but I doubt it. Unfortunately I was involved in a motorbike accident and 2 months after I am still having problems with the wrist and hand. As I have a physically demanding job I think it is slowing down my recovery greatly but unfortunately I cant really take off time off work so I just got to hang in there. All I can do at the moment is safety bar squats and yoke carries as holding a barbell hurts my hand. This year has been a disaster but maybe I can still build a decent body with 2 exercises.

Al the best with the recovery. There's always next year.

surely theres other things you can do. If not, now is a good time to set up your diet and rehab sessions in prep for a big 2014

Thanks Shrek. Taurus ill see how it goes over the next few weeks. I am only going to introduce one exercise a week so I can see how it goes. I know the SSB squats were actually worse on my wrists than a normal back squat as holding the bar had alot of weight dumped on the wrists. Tried a back squats today with wrists wrap for extra support and it was fine. Also hanged off the pull up bar to stretch my back and that didnt help so I have a feeling I will be able to do some type of pulling exercise. I think the problem is if the weight is pushing into my wrist like with any pressing exercise, I think pulling will be ok.
