I unfortunately don't have any good before pics. But 4 months ago I was 208 and hadn't lifted or worked out ever. I'm sure I had something like 23% BF.

Before-not the best representation. I was probably even a bit heavier than I am in this photo when I first started 4 months ago.




This is where I'm at now.

My left pec is lacking a bit.

Holy crap, that seems like a lot of a change for 4 months! You don't have any old pics from facebook or anything?

Ok, here is a before pic from about this time last year. I was probably even a bit heavier than this when I started.

Not the best, but you get the picture.

this was like four years ago during track season (165-170 lbs), but my body hadn't changed at all since then until i started lifting last winter. its not a very good pic, but you get the idea of how stupidly skinny i was. I'll try and steal my brothers camera to get a current pic tomorrow. edit: im on the far right by the way with the goofy chin mullet

Eat right and push yourself and I'm sure you'll be satisfied with the results

Before you start taking supplements, you need to get your nutrition in check. Supplements supplement your diet, so you can't rely on them alone.

Also, get a good lifting routine and stick with it.

Figure out your goals. Are you a skinny person already, or are you wanting to lost weight? Figure out your basal metabolic rate and your daily energy expenditure. Eat 500 above that combined total to gain weight ie build muscle, or eat 500 below your maintenance to lose weight.

When I first started lifting, I took protein, got a pre-workout nitric oxide/caffeine supplement like NO Xplode, Superpump 250, or White Flood (WF doesn't have creatine in it), and I started taking creatine about a month after getting into lifting.

Stay at it. It might be discouraging not to see results right away, but after a while, you'll start to see the results.

I had my bf% taken today. I'm at 192lbs and 11% body fat. How realistic is it to cut another 2% in a month? I've got my macros more or less in check and am on a cutting diet taking Universal animal Cuts thermogenic. I took some photos (posted above) when I started it ~ 5 days ago, and I'll post up the results when the 3 week cycle is completed.

when you are as low as you are, you can lose the 2% but you will almost definitely lose some muscle in the process. at 11% bodyfat, even dropping 1% will make a noticable difference. if you are going for looks i wouldnt even worry about your bf% though

Here is a picture of me 1 year ago.

weight = 165 lbs
height = 5'10"





These are picture of me from 2 weeks ago. I started lifting weights in March of this year. Just ate like a mad man trying to get in around 5,000 calories a day. Well, I went from weighing around 170 in march to 197 lbs today. I don't ever max out so I could not tell you what I max.

PhatSVT, if what you say is true, it appears you're a natural. Keep at it, and you'll go far.

You look to have solid gains without gaining too much fat in the process. I wonder what you would look like weighing ~ 185 ish.

I have been busting my tail to get where I am at today. Would like to put on about 10 more lbs then start cutting down and bulk again next year around the same time. Ideally I would like to weigh 205-210 with lean muscle. It will be probably 2 more years of hardwork to get there, but man I have noticed how much easier it is to do things at work and in the garage with the added muscle. I don't try to workout too hard or I will lose motivation and results. This thread has been some good motivation. You all have some outstanding results. Keep up the hard work.
