just kidding. Here is me in my pasty white glory. I know that I have a long way to go. I am thinking lats would be a good place to start and a chest and arms and abs and legs and shoulders and my back. I have a long way to go.

Dude you look pretty thick to start with, if you train and eat right you should look great.

11-10-2005, 03:13 PM
Thanks and that is the plan. I have started with WBB1 and I will try and post some new and better pics in about 4 weeks of training.

Do you think cut or bulk at this stage of the game....Or just try and get stronger.

I think that if you start lifting on a regular basis that you won't need to cut. I would say give a while and see how you react to the training. You don't look fat at all, and any flab that you do have will go away with a good training regiment. Good luck bro, I am sure you will be huge in no time. Remember that slow and steady win the race, so don't give up.

i'd say maybe cut a little bit and then clean bulk all the way.. also depends on how much u care about fat gain... if u don't really care, then just bulk like a mother****er and u'll get to where u want to be.

I think you have a great base to work on. Your probably a lot stronger than I am.

11-10-2005, 04:05 PM
THanks guys

I dont know about the stronger thing, your pretty ripped up. When I was working construction in the field (as opposed to in an office like now) I was pretty strong.

Now that I have started working out again I am sort of dissapointed at how little I have been lifting. I think some of it is just being out of practice and a lack of confidence.

Just stay with it and you will look and feel awesome.

THe more I do work out the better I feel. I had gotten to a point where I did not feel comfortable in my own skin.

THat will all change 1 day at a time.

That is a great attitude to have. I have days when I look in the mirror and I am like holy crap, it doesn't even look like I have ever worked out, and some days I feel pretty good about the way I look. I think it is just a never ending journey and if you love it enough you will succeed, if not you will fall and be left behind. Keep up the good work, listen to your body and be aware of these gym jocks who seem to have the get big quick method.

Later bro

burban - you gotta determine your own goals ... and then find out what works the best for your own genetics..

We can all give advice on where you should go.. but it may not be what you want.
Do you want more muscle? more definition? more shape?
With your current base, you could any of these ways - it's up to you.

Do you have any other health considerations to think about?

Hey - you look like one of those guys who is going to have little trouble packing on size - one of the advantages of being one of those people who gets big easily is we get muscular relatively easily. The choice for some of us is "big and squishy" or "big and hard". Glad you're making the same choice I did ;)

Looking at where you are right now, I'd neither bulk nor cut at the moment. Get your diet worked out and really, really stable - lift heavy and do a little bit of strategic cardio to get yourself well-conditioned and you'll see your body gradually recompose. At that point, you can decide if you want to cut up for summer, or do a little bulker first before starting a spring cut. This way, you'll be able to see what you've been able to accomplish, and give yourself an excellent base to go into a real bulk next fall.

Good luck, and enjoy the process!

I agree with built. If you stay about the same weight you will gain some muscle and lose some fat. If you have never worked out before, you have good genetics

11-14-2005, 02:20 PM
Just lift away and you will be just fine.

11-14-2005, 02:31 PM
Built you are exactly right I dont chang much from my base weight which is a blessing and a curse.

Gabrielle I have worked out before but not seriously and with any sort of goal.

97 Thanks for the comments I am going to just lift away

Bearwolfden My achilles heel is my hip. I dislocated it when I was about 14. It was straight out from my body and I put it back in place with one big jerk. So at 24 I have bone spurs and arthritis not to mention avascular necrosis where I crushed all of the blood vessels. THis makes squats and dead lift a little tricky. However the more that I strengthen the surrounding muscles the less discomfort I have on a daily basis.
As for my goals, I want to stay around the same weight but be more defined and larger. (but isnt that why he are here?) :evillaugh .

I started a journal and fitday.com. my diet is shi%%y and is definitely my weak point. I will take all of what you people have said and just lift my a$$ off. :lurk:

I am going to try and post pics and an interval of 4 weeks for an hones critique from some people who know what they are talking about.

Thanks for the comments
