A year ago today
One year ago today I was 282 pounds and miserable. I took some pictures and made a goal.
Bench - 165
Squat - 235
Dead - 270
282 From the front October 29th 2010
282 From the back October 29th 2010
October 29th 2011 I'm 220 pounds and I've never been happier. I started by running to the gym everyday and cutting back on what I was eating. I dropped a good bit of weight pretty quick and just went from there.
bench - 255
Squat - 340
Dead - 375
220 from the Front October 29th 2011
220 from the Back October 29th 2011
Yes sir, nicely done. Keep it up.
Great job man! Stick with it, and imagine where you'll be this time next year!!!
Congrats. Keep it up. You are on the right track.
Great work man, keep it up. Long term goals?
As of right now, all my long term goals are strength related. Basically within a year I want to have at least a 1.5:1 strength to weight ratio on all my core lifts: bench, squat, and dead lift. However I've already achieved that on my dead lift and squat, so I'll be shooting for 2:1 ratio on those two.
The way I figure it with my current weight that would put me at a 330lb bench, 440 squat and 440 deadlift. I've yet to meet a person that puts up numbers like that who doesn't look huge, jacked, swole, beastly etc which is why all my goals are related to strength and not physique/weight.
Its a big goal I know, but no one got anywhere dreaming small.
Thats awesome progress sir! Keep it up!
