>2 years progress on the day
I lost my starting pictures so this is the fattest picture of myself that I can find. I've been on a cut doing icf 5x5 since mid august and have gone from 240lbs to 172lbs. I hopefully only have under 10 pounds left to lose.
Sorry bout them hips bruh... nice loss tho, mine is over 1.5 years around 45 kg. Ask me anything
fixed a while back, and started lifting a month ago
really need to cut
My 8 month fitness progression.
150lbs irst pic, 170 lbs second pic.
6'2, 240. Down from 330. Trying to lose 20-25 more. Just quit drinking (again) so hoping it comes off kinda quickly
I'm 25 and 6"0'. Left is from August 2014, I was at least 252lbs. Right I took today at 176lbs.
It's been about a year since I turned my life around, I still have a lifetime ahead of me though. Right now my plan is to slowly cut down to 150 by mid-July while I continue to lift, run, and hike. Obv I'm pretty new to lifting, but I was a cardio hare in high school.
Posted this one a month ago, but I'll post it again, in case I can help motivate people to lose weight.
>tfw unsure of what to do, would like to bulk, but I want abs (reason I started lifting/losing weight recently, sounds small but it's a goal) and want a lower body fat %
Shittttttt don't have a before picture but I was 290 at my heaviest
>tfw was a fatty throught middle school and ballooned up to 290 in highschool playing football
>graduated and found fit
>lost 100 pounds in 2015
>currently bulking to try and put on some mass and help with my loose skin
Granted I know I could have lost more fat but I felt it wouldn't have been worth it as I should just put on size...
Just turned 20 so hopefully skin will snap back.
>a-at least I'm 6'4
Gonna bulk till may then cut for summer
Thanks anon I usually get nothing but shit when posting here
I had surgery a few months ago and they shaved all the hair on my upper body... Gf and I couldn't decide if we liked it or not
It's been so long since I had an option other than "fat as fatass", I don't know how to answer that... I want to look good of course, and be able to do iron mans, marathons, rock climbing, and shit. It's not that I don't see value in being strong for the sake of strength, it's just not something that has a whole lot of application in my day to day life.
2 years. pic on left around 216 lbs, now I'm ~252lbs. 6'7'' and its so hard putting visible mass on my tall frame. I'm considering doing my first cut in mid february, i know i could get bigger, but I'm tired of looking and feeling bloated. but i wanna look semi-decent for summer. any thoughts?
Good work mang. We have similar insertions, I've just got 15 lbs on you.
I was definitely flexing legs but that's it I think.
Nothing to train them specifically. Just low bf% I'd say.
Think it went something along the lines of PPL (focus on compounds at low reps so pretty SS'ish) -> SL (briefly didn't like rep scheme) -> SS with accessories -> 5/3/1 BBB -> Texas Method -> Suicidal volume hypertrophy routine -> Back to Texas Method.
Right now I'm running a Smolov Jr cycle for Squat and OHP which is going great. I'll hop back on Texas Method after Smolov to try and keep as much strength gains as possible then I'll probably switch to a PPL 2 months from now or so.
This thread is what I've needed.
Seeing some dough bodies like myself make it is pretty damn inspiring.
We're all gonna make it /fit/
I only work on stomach/butt/thighs because those are the only bodily things I really care to improve.
Top left- 4 years ago
Top right- 1 year ago
Bottom left- 2 days ago
Bottom right- What I want to be (needed a filler for the grid so)
I look worse shirtless plus I haven't taken a new shirtless pic
Near my heaviest 265
My goal is 160
I am holding a bit of water weight today
Nice! I'll have to take notes, soon I'll be talking to girls like a pro too..
>dreamer bulked to left pic over 8 months or so
>now painstakingly cutting it off
Side note: Should I switch program? I keep stalling on my lifts and haven't put any real weight on the bar in about 2 weeks I was thinking 5/3/1 BBB
sup /fit/ progress kids.
just trying to start my transition because being a fat piece of shit is garbage.
are there any disciplinary pro-tips to stick to certain diets, or meal plans that are fairly accessible?
glad you got that 'fuckin whatever' mentality on the height, only faggots care
3 months of mega-cutting--1000 calories with a TDEE of 4500, including quitting alcohol. I was drinking a fifth a day plus about 7-8 beers. Dropped 90 lbs. Then I slowly went up to about 2000 cals a day, which is what I'm doing now.
6 days a week.
Picked up drinking again for a couple months so I didn't lose any weight but still gained some muscle. Just quit drinking again so hoping to lose more weight.
I eat about a pound of chicken a day, and a shit ton of broccoli. Also eggs, fish, tuna, oatmeal, etc
From 295 to 209
Cardio since February 2015 been lifting since November 2015
Literally the easiest starting point is being a hungry skelly. Easier than skinny fat or fat fat. All you fucking have to do is eat you little bitch. You can actually SEE your gains from the very start --> massive, massive motivation (that skinny fats or fatties don't get).
Literally all of the fast aesthetic transformations you see are from skelly's lean bulking and doing a short cut.
How much more weight do you guys think i should lose to reach 10% bodyfat?
