Basically the pec's were too big as is his bicep, that's way to big, his fist needs to be out more, his shoulder needs to be bigger, and other things :/
But you're doing good you just gotta remember some basics about muscles :p because if he were to have a bicep that huge his whole body would have to be built like that :X

Like OniCloud said, work on the fist. It needs to be about 2x - 3x as big as it is now. For these kinds of poses, you should probably use a reference, like an illustrated anatomy book, to draw the muscles. They are quite helpful. Those are enviable abs, though.

i think your biggest problem - and Onicloud did not seem to mention this in his drawing- is that your arm is too short. i know, i know, it's coming forward and da da da, but the elbow is supposed to line up with the bottom of the rib cage. if you feel for the bottom of your rib cage, you'll find its sides just about where your bellybutton is. the arm you drew is about halfway there. another thing is that the chest is too high up and the abs should not be concentrated in the center of the body. the hands are also too small to begin with. i suggest that you compare the hands to the body. if you spread the hands out and rest them on the body, they would seem way too small. the hands should be twice that size. be careful with the size of the body and look at it as a whole, instead of piece by piece, and keep working on it!
