Of course you can be a Captain Upper Body if you want, but it looks terrible and you won't have any good base strength.
You're going to need to start using a barbell if you want any serious strength & size gains though.
Yeah I don't wanna be 'Captain Upper Body' lol, I was just pointing it out. As for the barbell, unless I buy one and a bench etc, which I actually can't yet unless there are ones for like £20, I can't use the ones at the gym apart from one that is just lying around but I won't be able to change the weight or anything if it's too light), it may be completely the wrong weight. I'll check out out heavy it is, it may be good for deadlifts and/or squats so I can at least get something in but it doesn't look that heavy.
I should still be gaining tho. And I'm not.
