Honestly, I don't see much difference between those pics, except her stomach is bared, and different lighting.

Yes, I was somewhat confused, too. The arms don't look much different. Can't really tell.

I see what you are saying--it might just be the lighting.

Here are two more: first is from 2010, second is from 2011.

(edit: can't figure out why they show as thumbs--should I remote link instead?)

Yeah, but writing "unscared" on your knuckles is equivalent to at least 4" extra on the bicep.

It's always hard to judge based on random photos since lighting, the movement they're performing, etc all have an effect on the perceived size of muscles.

But based on both sets of pictures, it appears she's added significant mass to her upper body. Her shoulders, traps, and lats appear much bigger.

Of course, it's been a full year, so if she focused on putting on mass, it's certainly possible she did it cleanly. I also don't give two sh*ts about steroids, so whatever.

I hadn't seen all the pics, but, that set up there comparing years does indicate some serious muscle was put on, especially given the training.

anyone have pics of Clever? I thought she looked much bigger than last year. Even more dramatic than Annie...
