Check it out.
Age: 37
Height: 6 foot 0 inches
Weight: 226

As some of you know I weighed in at 260 one year ago. Today I am 226. At age 37, this is as light as I have been since high school.

I can't thank you enough MariAnne. You've been my inspiration when it comes to dieting. I would have never stuck to it if not for your articles and encouragement.

Wow, man. Those lats are just SICK. You look like a slightly bigger (and taller) version of me, with glasses. Maybe in 8 years I'll be where you are liftwise, too.

You're huge! Awesome lats and thickness to your back man, very impressive.

So, being more of a powerlifter (correct me if I'm wrong), do you prefer being 226lbs or 260lbs overall?

Hey HB, you got any comparison shots or atleast some shots from when you were heavier?

Impressive nonetheless.

As of now I prefer 226. Now, if I could get back up to about 240-250 while staying lean... That's what needs to happen.

My back is the product of heavy weight, momentum and high volume. I literally cannot over train my back. That's a fact.

Would make for a good argument in the training forum for those who cry "over training" and "strict form" at the blink of an eye.

Some people just need to realize that to get huge you've just got to lift some heavy ass weights, and that doing 80lbs on rows with strict form isn't going to cut it.

Yea, I'm thinking that you'd prob be a little more comfortable in the 235-240 range. You should be able to maintain your condition and eat a few more of the things you like to eat.

Here is a pic of my back last Summer - '06 at 260 lbs.

and a pic of a bicep again last Summer - '06 at 260 lbs.

I was not nearly as lean but I carried a lot more muscle mass too.

06-30-2007, 11:12 PM
Wow. That's basically it.

If I can look even 1/4 as good at 37 I'll donate half my liquid assets to charity (this is not a binding contract because I know i woulnd't do that lol). But seriously, your hard work shows and hopefully you think it's payed off. keep it up!

P.S. I don't feel so bad about my rows anymore :)

You guys wondering how I look so big but only weigh 226? Answer: small lean legs. Seriously, I carry ZERO fat on my legs and they are proportionately small. It's frustrating because they are strong but do not want to grow.

This pic was taken back in May.

yeah HB...tiny legs :cry:


jk man. You're right though, your legs are VERY lean. Even in that lighting your looking super vascular. For the size comapared to the rest of you though, they're obviously pulling their weight (no pun ..well ok a little bit..intended)
