How tall are you? You have made me rethink some of my own goals I think, great work!

Thanks for all the kind words! I dont plan on stoppin here thats for sure. I have set a goal of 185 and then I will just try to maintain that weight. Its a lot of freakin work though.. However I am amazed at the difference in respect you get from almost everybody when your in-shape. Wish i would have done this a long time ago! But I'm 5'11" and legs are a big part of the workout. The guy that's helpin me out hired a nutritionist and a pro body builder to train him so I have gotten a lot of really good advice and assistance and i know i wouldnt be where I am without his help. But thanks again for the words, hopefully i will have some improvement pics in the next couple months!

Lift. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

Squat Heavy. Squat Often.

someone tell me the secret

Quitting drinking alcohol and soda, I think that helped me a lot. But I eat either eggs, tuna, or chicken with bread, rice, or pasta about every 2.5 hrs with work schedule allowing, allow 1 cheat meal a week and i stay away from sugar which sucks. EFAs and a multivitamin and lots of freakin water daily (at least a gallon) and 1 protien shake immediately after work out laced with dextrose. Try to sleep at least 8 hrs every night. 1 minute between sets and 3 minutes between different lifts (I set a timer). Switch my routine every 4 weeks. Progressive sets put on some serious size the last few weeks but yea, like Nicky said Lift Eat sleep repeat except for me its like eat eat eat eat eat lift eat eat sleep, then repeat. I try to be very consistant and only missed one day in the gym in 12 weeks. I lift light focusing on flexing the hell out of the muscle group(s) I am working and keep records of every set and how much weight I push every night. Try to bump up either my reps or weight every week a little bit... If you want to know anything about my routine I would be more than happy to share, but that was my secret..
