  1. 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.



  2. Excellent job.

  3. awesome

  4. Awesome job... But u gotta lose those workout gloves lol

  5. 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...

  6. Nice work mate!!! Keep it up, your killing it!!!!

    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.

  10. congratulations man, looking a LOT better, keep it up!

  11. incredible transformation. any specific supplements help you out?

    are these p90x results.?

  12. Rockin' bro! Inspiring! I am going to link this one to a friend.

  13. Great job!

    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.

  15. I got to admit bro, when I saw the first pic I was like here we go another fat ass with no changes in there pic. Scrolled more down and I was amazed with your 180 and then 200....
    Looking tight bro, keep it going.. and keep the ****ing gloves!!

  16. Awesome Bro Congrats!!!!!

  17. Thats a crazy transformation, and you look strong at 200, thats where Id keep it. I love being a little heavy and recomp. Thats where all the gains are at while still lookin BEEF. nice dude

    and I second on the gloves, hopefully on the christmas list. for now, calous.

  18. 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.

  19. these do look like p90x results.

    uncle tony and the kids know what there doing and is an excellent program for anyone IMO!

    if you watch those vids your sure to get a laugh as well. great stuff man keep on rippin it you evolve.

  20. Had a good lifting day today and snapped a couple pics.


  21. 2560 to 180 with no loose skin or stretch marks? very lucky....great transformation

  22. 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.

    just now saw you were 6'4" that probably explains a lot of it....you could carry the 260 better than most

  24. haha good lord your tall... anyways, yea man I know what you mean about athletic performance, I like being big, but being functional. Im still an athlete so thats number one. or at least I tell myself that, I just like gettin crazy sometimes. anyways, lookin beast man, hopefully this summer Ill hit up a big bulk after seasons over. the only stretch marks I have are on my shoulder

  25. 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.


  26. lookin solid brotha keep it up!

    you never will be

  31. 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.

    Hey I didn't know Christian Bale was on this forum.

  34. lol, thanks.

  35. 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.


  36. Awesome fxcking transformation bro! Id love to see what your diet and workouts are like

  37. 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.

  38. Nice! I finally said fxck it and decided that i want more of an anthletic physique and not just being big. Started a mix of weight lifting m/w/f and the insanity workout 5-6 days a week. We'll see how this goes hahaha

  39. 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.
