    ReX357: 10/01/2005 (First pics)

    Hi all, if you care to read my story, here it is:

    One year ago, I decided I wanted to change. I was 6'2" 155 lbs. I started to read tons of articles about body building. After a week, I started to check my diet. I stopped smoking and started eating correctly every 3 hours. I stoppped eating desert and concentrated on eating meat. The first couple of months were tough but I made sure I ate at least 50g of protein per meal. I didn't care for the carbs/fat cause I seem to have a pretty fast metabolism. At the same time, since I started, I was doing pushups every day with sit ups. And I would throw in a couple of bench press and bicep curl sets every other day. So I did that until august. By then I was 180. I subscribed to a gym in my area and started to go there religiously still keeping my protein intake in check. By the end of September, I was 187 14% bf. Been four months since I started training, now I am 206 13%. I hope I can grow up to 225-230 before summer and then cut up for the beach .

    My lifts right now:

    Bench: 225 x 4
    Squat: 245 x 8
    Deadlift: 275 x 5

    Here are my current pics:

    Excellent job! It really shows to go ya - that proper nutrition is the key to a better body. As you spent your first 8 months doing sit-ups, push-ups, curls every other day. And, afer just four months after beginning your work in the gym you are showing excellent progress. Keep up the great work!

    You look good for 19 and we share something in common, both favouring our rear lat poses as our favourite pose. Do you have any before pics. It would be interesting to she how far you have already come.

    I took some pics back in September but I still didn't develop them. When I'll have some time, I'll develop them and we'll be able to compare how far I came since 4 months ago.

    Yes I know... But I was a bit off when I wrote this thread, it was not 225 x 4, it was 245 x 4. But 2 days ago, on leg day, I did 275 x 5.

    well its obvious you made progress. you probably could be alot bigger with proper nutrition and training. im not sure you just want to keep doing pushups and curls and bench here and there every few days. if you really want to pack on size you should really only hit each body part once a week. your muscles need recovery time to grow. sure you may have had some decent results doiing this but most people who never really have trained tend to throw on some size and strength pretty quick when they first start up. just giving you some helpful advice. and for goodness sakes work on them legs, shouldnt be benching close to what you squat.

    Bro, if you read my post right, you'll see that I mentionned I've been training in the gym for 5 months... I'm no more doing pushups and curls at my house lol


    Giving an answer to a post is just like giving an answer in an exam: You gotta read the whole question/statement before answering

    Peace

    P.S.: Welcome aboard by the way
