My One Year Transformation (pics)
Alright guys, any comment critiques, etc are welcome.. I am 6'8" tall and 23 yrs old. I played 4 yrs varsity basketball through high school and was in phenomenal shape, but completely fell off track in college. I went over 4 years with very little physical activity. Last May, that all changed..
First up are my starting pics. Immediately below are pics taken yesterday.
***EDIT: As promised updated pics. Attached is the first. The rest will be up on Friday. I'm not where I want to be, and I've had setbacks but then I look at my starting pics. I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE.
May 11, 2007 (Start)
Starting Weight: 287 lbs
May 11, 2008
Weight (After 1 YR): 238 lbs
May 11, 2009
Current Weight: 234 lbs

Thanks everybody! I'm going to slowly start a clean bulk phase. Now that I've shed a good bit of fat, I'd like to add some muscle. I have to be careful to keep my diet clean enough that I don't blow my progress.
One thing I'm proud of is that even though I didn't gain strength (after the initial month back), there was ZERO loss in strength the past 11 months while steadily dropping weight.

you are gonna be a beast when you are through. Keep us posted. What is your workout gonna look like?

Thanks again everybody. Any suggestions on a workout for a bulk? I know I should be working compound movements. I have to say though being 6'8", my long a$$ arms make it hard to push heavy weight

I have to agree that some of the heavy stuff is tougher to move with longer limbs (I am only 6' tall, but I have noticed the same dilemma when doing squats and bench press), but keep at it, the strength comes with time. I have to constantly remind myself that I am only twenty four and my strength won't hit it's peak until I am in my early to mid thirties. If you start training hard now, you will be strong as **** in the future.:clean:
