  1. 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.

    Not even creatine? Did you use to feel like you couldnt get big, thats how i feel. Either way nice work! How old are you by the way?

  12. im sure he's used creatine, which is comparable to other staples such as fish oil

    PH's are a whole different story

  13. Thats damn impressive!

  14. 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.

  15. that's some great progress...great you have the progression in the pics..lookin thick man. keep up the great work

  16. What does your routine look like?

  17. 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.

  18. Do you do anything on the rest days(abs, cardio) or keep it strictly resting?

  19. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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

  22. 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

  30. 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.

  31. wow if i ate like that i would be throwing up all day. So good for you man great gains

  32. 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

    Trust me the more you eat the more your metabolism starts to ramp up, and after each meal youre hungry 30 mins later.

    That is a solid review, may have to consider Storm in the future. Thanks for the details on your progress, can't believe you got to where you are in that short a time, very impressive.

  40. lol @ someone asking "75lbs in 3years...natural"? lol not a clue...

    Great progress bro....you've come a long way in such a short time!

    With your bodyweight and upperbody size your either 1. Pretty short with decent/good wheels or 2. Have no wheels at all

    Hit dem legs kid
