    260 down to 180 up to 200


    Well, everyone else is doing it, so I thought I would too. These are me at my heaviest, lightest, and current weight. Ideally, I'd like to stay around 200, but a leaner 200. Trying to recomp now, actually...

    2008, about 260 lbs.



    Earlier this year, 180 lbs.



    Dec. 2010, 200 lbs.

    I only wear the gloves for a few things, but I've got to have them. My hands are falling apart bad enough even with them and I'm an artist by trade, so I need my hands a little bit...

    I was really skinny growing up and could get away with eating a lot because I was very active, but as I got older I just kept getting bigger and bigger. I guess I just reached my breaking point and couldn't stand being a fat ass anymore. My ego wouldn't allow it.

    I did some P90X, Insanity, weights, martial arts, regular ass cardio...I've tried just about everything. I tried a cycle of Epi while gaining weight, but didn't take anything on the way down.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone! 200 is probably where I'll try to stay for a while. I'm going to stay in recomp mode until next winter, most likely, then decide if it's worth bulking again. My approach to this is more practical/sport/performance based, so I'm not trying to look huge like some of the guys here...not that there's anything wrong with it. It's just not me.

    I have some loose skin and stretch marks around my stomach, but it's not terrible. It's only bothersome when I lean over without a shirt on.

    I'm sitting on about 195 as of this morning, following a low/no carb day. It was nice to wake up and see my abs, even if it's just a little bit. Here are some pics I took post shoulder & arm workout.

    Nice work man. You should do the P90X pose like on the commercials - the little asian guy who weighs about a buck 25 does it.

    down to 192. I guess I'd call this an accidental cut. I've been really busy the past few weeks and kept up on all my workouts, but not the calories. Argh.

    I've changed both diet and routine a lot depending on my specific goals and just because I've learned new things. My diet right now is very clean, but very high calories (4-5k) on lifting days. Strength stuff (basically 5/3/1) M/T/TH/F with HIIT or intense cardio each of those nights. I also do some lighter cardio, TRX, or core work on Weds. and Sat., but not at the same level as the other days. Those days are also low carb and as a result, lower calorie for me.

    I love Insanity, but the schedule is a little ridiculous. I wouldn't do it back to back days, personally. If I do Insanity one night, I'm doing some heavy bag or upper body work on my X-Factor for cardio the next night. I think doing it almost every day makes it very hard for your legs to recover.
