    270 to 220 progress pic

    Hi everyone I want to thank you all for the great knowledge about lifting and nutrition. Built you are amazing in the wealth of information and the effort you put forth to get us fatties lookin better.

    I know I am not where I want to be but I can sure say that life has definitely changed for the better and I am keeping on track.

    Chris and the Staff at At Large Nutrition thanks for the excellent products. I religiously use Nitrean and Opticen (After Workouts) to help my body recouperate and build muscle. Your products have defintely played a huge part in keeping my protein intake at adequate levels.

    Some notes:
    Yes I know I have a ways to go.
    I am 6'1".
    I definitely have a man mane going on and I am proud of it. Aside from the usuall trimming, NO shaving for me, my face and head are all I can handle.
    Since everyone wants to see leggies I included a pic.
    Resolution sucks (used my phone) since my ex girlie stole my digital camera Gonna buy another soon

    Update 11-21-2006: Ok 5 months have passed since I posted my original pictures. I figured I should take pictures BEFORE the holiday eat everything and its mother philosophy kicks in.....hehe. I do not see much of a difference in 5 months, although maybe my arms are fuller and shoulders are getting fuller as well. I am at about 234 right now up from 220. Maybe old age is finally filling in the gaps I really should have taken 5 month progression pics from the start but hey I learned from my mistakes.

    How about a guess on bodyfat? Could someone maybe help me out on that? I am guessing at least 25%? I have always been a fattie so getting super cut abs are definitely not on my list. I do however would like to get as close to possible as I can. I have been lacking on tracking my fitday but come the new year it will be my goal to keep it as up to date as possible so I can get an idea of my macross. Then I will have to hit up Built to give me a hand.

    I hope everyone has a happy and safe Holiday Season

    awesome transformation. You have great muscle maturity, it really shows in your quads and chest. Once you start dipping below 200 you will look sick. Keep it up and keep doing what you are doing because it is working.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    It has taken me about 2 years to get to this point. Weighed myself this morning and I dipped below 220 to 218.

    Lets see...

    I am 33 years old
    6'1"
    Bench never max out but I do 325x6 345x2 or 3 if I can. I will try maxing out next time I have a couple days rest.
    Squat 365x8 405x3
    Deadlift......225x2 Because I had an injury from heavy deads I am doing light weight.

    Great improvement! You really look so much better!

    Perhaps we can put your pics up on the site and a user of our products. Give me a PM if you would.

    Great work! The way you started your OP I was expecting a still fat orangutan or something. So disappointed.

    Your transformation is great. I'd like to see an update of pics in half a year or so. Your legs look good as they are but will look even better in the future if you keep at it.

    And the man mane you've got is far from offensive. In fact, it's fairly unobtrusive (unless the phone cam isn't capturing it well). No need to worry about it.
