I thought I would start a pic thread for myself. try to keep track of progress. and yes I know Im fat, im working on it.
Im back in lifting after about a year and a half or so of being lazy, and about 3 years since any serious lifting.
This is my second week and weight is 210 (5'9" tall)

Really not that bad to start. The biggest thing is your starting. Might be time for a new shirt though...;)

lol yeah , were in a heat wave and its the coolest thing I could find

one of my problems in starting and stopping is I hate my local gym only a handfull of guys who squat or deadlift and mostly machines. Its like a social club in there, more people talking than working out but you cant get on anything. Now that I bought my own equipment I think Ill finally keep going. I just hate the gym, but I love to work out.

You need to bulk up son!

Ill get a pic of my stomach and sides later. believe me. 5'9" 210

Lot of potential to be a powerhouse I'd say...

07-16-2008, 03:44 PM
You really don't look like 210lbs for being 5'9...

07-16-2008, 03:47 PM
Ill get the pics of my mid section lol. I also rode bmx for a number of years and it did my legs pretty well, so I think my lower body makes up a lot of that as well.
oh and you can tell because I have like no arm definition and they arent tiny, I can curl 60lb dumbells, when Im lifting they look ok but other than that they are just kind of rounded, and I have a 38 inch waist

210 at 5'9"? I don't bite. I'm 5lbs heavier then you. 4" taller, and look WAY bigger =o

Im still fat but I got a enw shirt and some new pics, that hopefully look better

12-06-2008, 06:10 PM
Have you gained weight?

12-06-2008, 07:10 PM
Im a little over 220 now so I gained a few. I can say I see it a lot more in person. I can say however since those pics my bench went up 75+ lbs. I havnt tracked my deads or squat because Ive been taking them slow after breaking my leg in march. my overhead press went up 30 lbs as well.
Im like 24% bf so I hate to rally pack in calories afraid that Ill be fatter than I am.

If you've only gained 10lbs, then you've done well. You looks at least 20lbs bigger, but without much fat gain.

Nice shirt, big upgrade. Skin looks better too. Shave those pits, get a tan. Keep up the solid effort. Start cutting by Feb. to get to low teen bf% by summer.

lol yeah the shirt was a big step. in the first pics I had just got over the flu and pneumonia and aparenty after sitting on the couch for a week and not moving I got a rash.
Im actually down a notch on my belt and I eat a ton.
