i started working out july 1st of this year, and the after pic was taken december 1st, i did it pretty much natural until i maxxed out at 190,

then i did a small (4 week) fina cycle (do not do this if you are unexperienced like me)and got to 205, that is what i was at in the after pic, i got tendonitis in my right arm, and thats about all i can think of, let me know what you all think

*edit, i started at 160, i am 6'00. and my bf is currently 13.1%*

Nice progress man, that's a complete transformation. Not possible in 5 months, though.

yes guys its the truth... i dont know any of you personally so why would i lie about it? seriously as soon as i broke up with my gf of 4 years all i did was eat like a horse and go to the gym,, my biceps went from 14" to 16 1/2" i started july of this year, why is this so hard to beleive? my friend started with me 1 month after me and he has gained 35 lbs witch is also a large gain, but we both just ate and worked out all the time. for the first 3 months we both gained about 25 lbs.. so beleive it this is for real

It is possible.

My first year of bodybuilding I put on a solid 50LB's - now 5 months and a cycle? I don't see why not.

It looks like a good 70lb difference to me. 70lbs in 5 months? First pic looks like you're about 130lbs, depending on your height of course. Second pick I'd say 200 maybe? If it was only 5 months, which I doubt, that's the most weight I've seen anyone add in 5 months.

160lbs in the first pic? Ya okay. Maybe 116lbs. I call bull****.

12-30-2004, 05:28 PM
lmao, damn all you haters are funny, maybe its the angle that the first pic was taken at, just like my license plate frame says DONTH8. the topic to my post didnt say,, do you beleive this or not? no it doesnt, i have nuthing to prove to any of you i am simply showing my results... like it or not its the truth, just because you might not be able to do it doesnt mean i cant.. thanks to all those who are not ignorant...i have not had a job this hole time and had nuthing else to do but to get as big as i could...

Excellent progress! I see no reason for you to lie to a bunch of strangers so I believe you, especially since you say you did a cycle. Cycle or no, that takes A LOT of hard work.

12-30-2004, 05:44 PM
I have a friend who is 6'0 130lbs and he looks the exact same as you in that first pic. Nobody is "hating", or whatever you might want to call it :rolleyes:

I'm not doubting that you made that transformation. I'm doubting the following things:
1. that you were 160lbs in the first picture
2. that you gained what looks like 70lbs or so in 5 months

wannab250
12-30-2004, 05:49 PM
the last time i was 130 lbs was like 8 years ago.. the lowest i could have been in that pic was 155, and i think that 70lbs would look alot bigger than that as far as how much difference was made,

sidney
12-30-2004, 06:16 PM
the pictures are of the same guy thats for sure,

if you did that in 5 months well done if it took longer than 5 months well done again thats a big ass transformation good effort mate

Edit: I just realized the title of the thread. You're claiming that there's only a 45lb difference between those two pictures? Get a new scale. I'd say that's more like a 70lb difference.

I'm impressed !! You look awesome. As for the muscle in such a short period of time well, everyone is different. My trainer and others at the gym can't believe the amount of muscle I've put on in just a few months!! Hard work and protein pays off!!! Congrats!!

Regardless of the time frame and how you did it, you look great!

First, let me say great job. That is definitely a wicked transformation. It kinda sucks that you dabbled so early, but at least you realize it was a mistake.

You can't blame people for being skeptical. A lot of people post pictures looking to have their ego stroked and can sometimes exaggerate things. Having said that, I'm not doubting you. 45lbs in 5 months is about 2-2.25lbs a week. Definitely possible for a beginner. The problem is, most people (especially beginners) don't know how to eat and can't imagine it's possible.

As for the claims saying you weighed 130 in the first pic and must have gained 70lbs ... I have a friend who is a triathlete and he's 6'0, ~160 and looks pretty similar to the first picture (maybe a bit leaner). I think some people have a hard time guessing others' weight.

When you're super thin and can focus all your efforts into gaining then beginners can really pack it on in the first year. Teufy managed to pack on 50-60lbs in the first 6-12 months as well eating a ton.

Ironrelic
01-01-2005, 03:23 PM
Impressive & I'd give the bulk (no pun) of the credit to eating like a horse & working like a horse gym time. The cycle no doubt brought some gains too; can't either condone or flame you on that. What brought on the tendonitis?

wannab250
01-01-2005, 07:16 PM
i dont know why i got tendonitis, either improper form, or maybe not resting enough. i dont know, but it sucks. i hope it goes away but it probably wont.

01-01-2005, 08:03 PM
So how much did you weight in the first pic and how much do you weight now?

Cubby
01-01-2005, 08:11 PM
wow, you have inspired me so much just now, I am 6 2, and 170, and I look alittle more bulkier then in your first pic, but not by much, and now that I see transformations like this are possible I am gonna work my ass off, one question, what do you mean by "cycle"?

MM
01-01-2005, 11:41 PM
I think you look smaller than 160lbs in the first picture, but I don't give a ****. You look fantastic -- an amazing transition. I'm not sure why people don't believe that you put that on within 5 months with a cycle thrown it. But really, you look lighter than 160; maybe your legs are tree trunks or something.

Good job.

To help out with the tendonitis problem try some GLUCOSAMINE and someGLUTAMINE before and after your training, and if your still on the steroid kick a little bit of DECA is always good for the joints

Deca is not good for the joints, quite to contrary when speaking long-term. Just because they feel good, doesn't mean you're not damaging them.

It was 5 months, not 1 year.

Flexx
01-02-2005, 03:41 PM
for galileo i did not say do Deca by itself will fix the problem im only talking short term cycle and yes deca will fix it tempory because it fills the joints with water, and you are correct with long term effects

galileo
01-02-2005, 03:44 PM
It doesn't temporarily fix anything, it is actually equivalent to taking a pain killer to alleviate discomfort which should be addressed. Tadger has summed this up best -


Deca isn't all that great for your joints. Nandrolone metabolites bind to the glucocorticoid receptor. This is what controls release of cortisol and other corticoids... which in turn control inflammation. When there's no inflammation, you won't feel pain as you would normally. This allows you to keep lifting, running, etc... when you would normally stop because of the pain. The fact that you can push yourself further without pain, and because you're going to get stronger pretty quickly and use heavier weights, you really risk an injury.

I would highly recommend one not use deca, not only due to this, but for other reasons as well.

1. that you were 160lbs in the first picture
2. that you gained what looks like 70lbs or so in 5 months

so that's like 3.5lbs a week gaining, i can bulk at that rate too if i push it to extremes, that is believable.

well done wannab250, people tend to question the achievers, probably cos they always expect the worst

If it were possible to maintain a gain of 3.5lbs a week for 5 months, which I don't beleive, that wouldn't make much sense unless you want gain a 4/1 ratio of fat to muscle. And he clearly didn't do that based on the pictures. He looks like he stayed relatively lean throughout the process-which means he wasn't gaining 3.5lbs a week. Anyways, it's not a big deal-I was just stating the obvious. Like I said the transformation is good no matter how long it took.

wannab250
01-03-2005, 05:13 PM
thanks all... i got a job now so hopefully i can maintain what i have gotten, i dont have all day to just sit and eat and work out when i please. but as far as 3.5 lbs/week is not how i gained, for the first month i gained about 6 lbs a week (24lbs/month) then it just slowly went down and took longer and longer to gain.. now i am down to like 1 lb per week, my bf is 13.1 is that ok? should i try to get it down lower? thanks all for all the input. :)

i definitely am a bit skeptical. even if i have a job i never halfass my workouts. i do the best i can at all times. i think its premature when people say "well all he had to do was concentrate on lifting and eating. anyone can do that." its not going to make much difference whether you work or not unless your work is really tough and physically draining and it really affects your workout. examples: mailmen, cable/satelite guys, construction workers, mason, etc.

but improvement is improvement and whether it took 5 months as the guy claims or 5 years it is still great work.

You could do a cut, you would probably be happy with the results. When you mean 6lbs a week I'm assuming that was during your cycle, and you were holding water weight, no?

rookiebldr
01-04-2005, 08:30 AM
Hahn, he indicated that he did the cycle late in his bulk only when he stalled out. So most of his gains were starting out from the get go. Awesome work.


i started working out july 1st of this year, and the after pic was taken december 1st, i did it pretty much natural until i maxxed out at 190,

then i did a small (4 week) fina cycle (do not do this if you are unexperienced like me)and got to 205, that is what i was at in the after pic, i got tendonitis in my right arm, and thats about all i can think of, let me know what you all think

01-04-2005, 05:45 PM
izwar--i didnt get a ton bigger from the cycle- but 15lbs is 15lbs, you do not need gear to get that ripped,

rookiebldr--you are correct, most of my gains (30lbs) were from natural, and then after the plateu i got some gear then got an extra 15lbs.

i dont see why people even care that much how much time or weight he put on.. and to say its impossible to gain 60+lbs in 6 months is BS i went from 130 to 185 from april to nov only 7 months...

nice work bro you look damn good now take care of your tendons and youll be alright..
