TO EVERYONE WHO GAVE ME PROPS FOR MY PROGRESS:

THANK YOU. I'VE WORKED REALLY HARD THE LAST 6 MOS.

TO THOSE WHO ASKED TO SEE MORE PICS:

HOPE THIS HELPS YOU JUDGE MY BF% BETTER

TO THE HATERS AND NON-BELIEVERS:

I hope you believe me now. IT'S REALLY ME!!! I'm actually kinda baffled that people would accuse me of airbrushing my pics or using gear to get like this. I mean come on, I'm only 165lbs!!! to be honest I feel puny and weak. What I've accomplished was achieved by a sensible diet and excercise routine, ECA and cardio. Yes, I did a 4 week cycle of 1-Test in April, but that didn't cause me to go from 19% bf to 10%

I know I need to work on my posing. Again, I had a 3 year old taking these pics.

My quads and traps are weak points that I need to work on. Any advice or comments are appreciated.

All these pics were taken earlier tonight.

First, some back shots:

Thanks for the vote of confidence RM.

Hell yeah I'm gonna bulk, I'm gonna wait about a month or so because there's a company picnic I'm attending next month. It's at a water park, so I'll get to parade around topless all day, and I wanna look my best.

One last pic, this shows my progress over the last 10 months. The first shot was from August of last year, when I was just getting back in to lifting, and was just starting my bulk. The middle shot was when I was 190 @ 19% at the end of my bulk. The pic on the right was taken today.

AND NO COMMENTS ON THE WHITE AFRO!!!!!!

what f*cking progress man. astounding. calfs especially look great (what a surprise for an irish dude) but as you say, quads are lacking, and pecs as well. Its weird how you lost so much fat on your abs, something many people have so much trouble with.

Outstanding progress. What amazes me is that the guys who called BS are longtime members of this site who all possibly know you well.

I said I was pretty sure, never said I was comletely sure. :D The abs had me fooled. *hides face*
I appologize and congrats on your achievement, you must of gone through hell.

I'm not sure why anyone would have doubted you there SP as you ARE an established member of this site. Kind of sad really. Dude, you look fookin' amazing and just in time for summer :cool: I really would like to congratulate you on a job WELL done.

One question...how did you like your 1-test cycle? Do you feel it helped you hold on to more LBM then if you hadn't done it at all? I ask because I am gonna do the same.

St. Patty once again you are looking awesome I never doubted you I just wanted you to prove them wrong. Keep it up.

Honestly, I think the shot of your chest and abs alone made you look at lot bigger than these pictures show. Not being mean or taking anything away from you, but with these pictures it doesn't look as surreal.

You look good and your hardwork as payed off. Your abs and calves are definitely the best features. Your legs definitely need some extra attention, but overall I think you've come a long way! Of course, you already know that.

Do yourself a favor and stay lean. Lean gain and keep your bf low. You look much healthier in the face at your current level.

peace.

Perhaps it helped a little, but it was only 4 weeks and it wasn't the cause of the transformation. With the Anti-E, it cost almost $200. Definitely not worth it. I mean if you want to try it, and you've got the extra cash, go ahead. If you're trying to cut, I'd say you're better off buying a can of Animal Cuts. That stuff is ace.

damn sp thats unbelievable, actually its a beautiful thing

but, your head is so out of proportion to the rest of your body, it looks really really weird in some of the pics, the one with the skullcap it looks fine, i think i said it before when you just posted a head pic , just from that, it looked like you were 225+

krazy how your arms hold some fat but the abs are all blingin out there
add 50 lbs to catch up to your head

You see, my further review was correct!


It is interesting to see your whole body and its fat deposition. It is virtually the opposite of mine. You carry little fat around your waist, yet your arms have very little definition. Your back and abs are tight, yet your chest and legs have little definition.

In any event, you have definitely lost a lot of fat and look great!

I averaged about a pound a week for 25 weeks. Peep the journal for my diet.

oh and in case anyone's wondering, all the ab work I did was like 3 sets of crunches once a week.
