  1. 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.

    Weight (After 1 YR): 238 lbs

    Good for you man

  9. good job, ill be inspired

  10. 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.

  11. Wow! Very well done!

  12. Here's a rough ouline of my diet for those interested:


    6:00 AM Wake Up

    6:15 AM Protein Shake (50g Whey)

    6:30 AM 5 Eggs Scrambled (3 yolks)

    10:00 AM Handful of nuts Almonds, Peanuts, etc (1-2 oz)

    12:00 PM Lean Turkey or Chicken Whole Wheat Sandwich (10-12oz meat)

    3:00 PM Protein Bar (VPX Zero Impact or Met-RX Protein Plus)

    6:15 PM Pre-Workout Meal (Cup Oatmeal w/ 1/4 cup walnuts + banana)

    8:45 PM 10-16 oz chicken/beef/salmon with broccoli and/or sweet potato

    10:30 PM Lights out (Bed)

  13. Great job man thanks for posting your pics. You look a few years younger now than a year ago. I'm sure you'll be an inspiration to many here. +Reps for your awesome transformation keep up the good work.

    cellardude, who is that woman in your avatar?! oh and GREAT job to the OP>

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

  18. 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:

  20. Awesome progress, bro! Congrats!

  21. Wow, very nice job sir.

  22. well done

  23. nice job!

  24. Thanks everybody! As I start bulking, I think I'm going to run less and jump rope more. I LOVE to jump rope and am damn good at it. :bruce2:

    Just remember you gotta keep those calories above what you are burning off by doing your cardio. It's hard to watch yourself get soft after all that hard work to lose weight, but most people can't make serious gains without a bit of fat on 'em. I keep my cardio to 2 days a week when I am bulking, I only do that for blood pressure/general health reasons, not to stay lean.
