Thanks. My whole family thinks I look a lot better and I feel a lot better. I could still lose a lot though. I use to be in damn good shape when I ran cross country and weightlifted, but then the devil came (video games) and I stopped for about a year or so, and injuries from baseball. It all took a toll on my confidence so I stopped. Now I am just doing it so I can be the way I was at one time. Not to mention I have a super girlfriend that really motivates me too.

I am not trying to be a dink, but I don't see any difference. I am sure it is just the pictures and that you are working hard and have progressed nicely. I would try to get someone to take the pics for you and always make sure you do the same poses with the same background and distance away from you.

You want a picture of my legs?
Let me get the PDA and see what I can do.

Sorry can't get any. They are not the prettiest legs though.

Yeah I have lost 3 inches off of my midsection. My belt that I bought 2 years ago is almost too big for me now. Not that this has anything to do with my "transformation" but I can lift over 200lbs (bench) for the first time in a couple years and I can lift longer without getting fatigued too.

Wow, nice weight loss. I can notice a different although the poses are awkward. You seem to of lost a bit off your hips, one of my problem areas. Good going pal.

Thanks again. I really have been working my arse off to lose the weight, while still gaining strenght. It's definately a task that you don't want to bargain for.

Yeah. It sure is. This is kind of off topic but since I started lifting again I can approach women more easily and talk to people more confidently and it has really been paying off. I get invited to parties more often and I can do a lot more things that I couldn't do before.

you're arms are great, almost perfect. But the rest seems to be lagging, especially your lats, traps, chest and stomach. Dont know aobut your back or legs. Other than that you look great, great improvement.

Thanks, all I really do is bench press', arm curls, and some deadlifts, with some fly's. I bike a lot (like 30 miles daily now), and run so that's why other parts of my body are not up to par. I also don't lift to gain a lot of weight on my bench, I do like 8 sets of 8-10 reps at 155 lbs.

you are going to have to start Squating, and actually work your legs. I think you're putting too much emphasize on upper body. You have/should train your body as a whole, you'll thank me later :)

sharkall2003

Yeah, I would but I don't have a squat rack (don't have a gym membership). I could probably do a light amount of weight though say 200 lbs or so?

you can do lunges, laterla lunges, front squats, hack squats, overhead squats, straight legged deadlifts, Cleans, and afcourse ATF Squats.

Okay. I will start working my legs tomorrow for sure. Also, should I be doing sit ups? I don't do any right now. I would really like to get my abs a lot more toned becasue there is quite a bit of fat around them

you can't spot reduce, it's genetically pre-determanded where you will begin to loose/gain fat. You should definatly do ab work, it will help with looks and also other lifts. If you can try to do weighted ab work, no need to do 40 crunshes, abs are like any other muscle, 6 - 12 rep per set is sufficient.

Nice little waist! You've got a GREAT frame for this, and a good base already.

shave your head

Last time I shaved my head my mom cried for like 2 hours and then swore at me for a couple days. I guess that's what happens when you shave your head right before family pictures. Hahaha. I have never seen my mom so pissed in my entire life.

Stop working your arms. Just...stop. You have a good base, now work on symmetry and the rest of your body. You'll look way better, but 'grats on the noticeable improvments so far.

You may want to consider moving things around in your diet. Maybe jacking your protein intake up a bit, at the expense of carbs. I'm not saying go carb free, just cut those back a bit. You've got a good platform, keep at it.

Well noticing I consume as much meat products and 80-120 grams of whey a day along with whole rotisserie chickens atleast once a week I don't know what more I could do. I don't want to look like a twig so I have been trying to consume 3000+ calories a day and damn does it get difficult.

Werd..

It is hard, but I suggest some MRP to help if protein is hard to get up to par.

45gs in 1 drink is hard to go wrong.
