My 3 year journey...
The first pic was when i was about 7 months out of Basic Training early 2006, weighed about 145 in my uniform. The second was sometime in the early spring of 2007, about 160lbs. The third pic was New Years eve 2008, weighed about 175lb. The fourth was September of 08 around 185. And the last couple were pretty recent a couple months back, weighing around 210-215 in those shots, currently sittin just under 220 as of this morning.

All natural up until about 185, then a couple of PH cycles to get to 205, and the last 15lbs have been natural

im sure he's used creatine, which is comparable to other staples such as fish oil
PH's are a whole different story
01-03-2010, 08:31 PM
01-03-2010, 08:56 PM
Yeah creatine off and on, normal supports supps, i.e. joint supps, fish oil, protein etc.
Didnt think i would ever get big for the longest time, ill be 24 this Tuesday. I just kept eating and eating, and finally started to grow.

What does your routine look like?
01-04-2010, 08:39 AM
I do a 2 on 1 off spit right now, keepin the weights pretty heavy and rep ranges between 8-12.
Day 1 Back
Day 2 Chest
Day 3 Rest
Day 4 Legs
Day 5 Shoulders
Day 6 Rest
Day 7 Arms
Day 8 Back
Day 9 Rest
and it keeps going on like that.
01-04-2010, 10:47 AM
Do you do anything on the rest days(abs, cardio) or keep it strictly resting?
01-04-2010, 10:54 AM
Pretty much just rest, sometimes my physical therapy (sprained shoulders, strained trap, and rehabbing a torn quad) days fall on rest days but they have little impact, replenish my body w/ moderate to high carb, high protein meals. typically in the range of 3500-4200 calories, supplements ~10g of glutamine, 10g of creatine
01-04-2010, 10:59 AM
Dam you're huge bro nice work. Thats incredible, even for using ph's, I don't think ph's are even THAT useful since in many cases gains are lost. But 3500-4200 cals doesn't even seem like that much for your weight. I'm eating around 3700 and I'm only 183 and slowly gaining.
01-04-2010, 12:09 PM
im on a maintenance point right now, although i tend to make gains w/ very little caloric increase, since i have some injuries that are somewhat limiting me not to mention i work 12hr shifts, but my diet is extremely clean, no cheating anywhere in it right now, very lean and very spread out
01-04-2010, 12:12 PM
those cals seem right...
most people don't need humungous amounts of cals to bulk, unless they are hardgainers...and judging by his pictures, he is not.
i can lean bulk on 2700-2900

I dont have an official review/log, but it is by FAR my favorite creatine, 80 servings, and only like $30, you cant go wrong in my opinion. I have been taking it for 2 years now, and it has worked wonders. My skin starts feeling tighter after using it for 2-3 weeks.
01-04-2010, 10:32 PM
wow if i ate like that i would be throwing up all day. So good for you man great gains
01-04-2010, 11:10 PM
Why would you be throwing up?
That is a basic bodybuilding diet.
Sleep Supplement 3Z BCAA: Red Raspberry and Lemon flavors
HGH/sleep enhancer: HGHpro
Test Booster: TestoPRO and STOKED!
Preworkout: MANIAC Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade
