View Full Version : Yet another bloke from England :)

01-24-2003, 11:24 AM
Been on the boards for only a few days, seems like a really nice community. Ill be posting here for a long time to come hopefully :)

I made some pics with my crappy webcam a few days ago, apologies for the quality (and the poses) - im hoping to get a digi cam soon. Pics are very dark :(

Started with a proper routine/diet 2 weeks ago, before that i had been going twice a week (when i felt like it) with no special diet for 3 months.

Made a bit of progress in the last 3 months, mainly in the last 2 weeks though! From 65kg (143lb) to 69kg (~152lb). I estimate BF has gone up a percent or two.

Didnt have a pic of my legs handy, will add soon.

Im going to continue propery training and in a few months hopefully reach some goals.

Unforunately Ive got to take 2 weeks off due to tension headaches, pushed it too hard with a crappy breathing technique. We live and learn :).

Age: 19yrs old
Weight: 152lb / ~69kg
Height: 5'10.9" - ~179cm
BF: estimated 7-8% (?)

Lifting stats coming soon...

Goal: 165lb / 75kg by June-July

Nah its working fine, its just one of the moderators of this forum has to first look at all the pics and authorize them before they are displayed, i guess PowerManDL hasnt got round to it :)

I already sent him a PM but hes probably busy.

01-25-2003, 05:51 AM
No pics to validate...

01-25-2003, 05:54 AM
what about now ?

*edit* there is a problem with the approval process at the mo. Hulk has been sent a PM about it.

01-25-2003, 11:28 AM
Welcome aboard, Exnor.

01-25-2003, 12:16 PM
Aye welcome aboard.

Hulk needs to go into the control panel for vbulletin and set the forum URL to the ip address until he gets the DNS issues worked out. Alot of things are broke (ie thread update mailing which point to wannabebigforums.com instead of the IP address).

Ok i give up with this boards attachment system, doesnt agree with my pics. not gonna wait for my re-uploads to be approved again :(.

I've now uploaded them to my webspace and just put them in my posts, tell me what you think :help:

Hard to tell you're bodyfat cos of the fuzzyness of the photos, but looks pretty low as you said. Just get diet sorted and you're on your way. (Also get a routine sorted but thats kinda second to diet).

Eat till you can't eat no more.
Once you're done reading this post, eat your PC.

Hmm I really need better photos :(

Yeah ill bulk up for now, still working hard on everything...

Is that Dramatic lighting?

EAT! I wish I started off skinny instead of a load. Eh. I keep what I gain though...

How long have you been lifting?

01-27-2003, 06:14 AM
lol. No the lighting wasnt deliberate, i have one light in the corner of my room, and the cable for the cam only stretches about 1.5 metres... if i faced the cam i would block out the light, very tricky with a crappy quality cam. I should have taken them during daylight but wasnt practicle on the day :)

01-27-2003, 06:16 AM
I have the opposite problem - its very hard for me to put on weight! My metabolizm is in overdrive the whole time... i can put on weight but very slowly.

Been lifting since september last year, but only seriously in the last 2 weeks.
