What was/is your time frame between where you were and where you wanted to be?
For me I've given myself a three year period to reach my goal. I've been at it for eight months and while I've lost a lot of weight and put on noticeable muscle, I still don't look anything near how I want to without a shirt on.
What's your timescale? What's your goal?
Well I haven't given myself a definitive time scale because I'm not looking to work out my entire body. My goal is to have a flat stomach and a butt/thighs that would make any other girl jealous.
Top left is where I was about 5 years ago before any exercise.
Top right is where I was about a year ago when I first started working towards my goal.
Bottom left was taken a few days ago.
Bottom right is the general shape (but bigger size) that I hope to be in a few months.
So I guess I would say that I'd like to have my change in under 2 years?
Well, I feel like my butt is a bit bottom heavy and I'd like for it to be the same size all around. Also I have those annoying dimples/depressions in the sides of my butt which I can't figure out how to get rid of effectively.
I gave myself 1 year to have abs and be lean and another year to lean bulk to be muscular like pic related. Currently 8 months doing exercise but only 6 months of a strict compound routine.
Right now I'm 18.5%bf down from 30% when I started. Planning on going to 12 in these 3 months. Feelsgoodman.jpg
You might need to work with what you got. You want the right amount of fat and muscle. Keep working at the gym but try not to work off the fat.
The girl on the right also has lighting, tight yoga pants and is probably standing funny for the photograph. Stop wearing baggy jeans, get a tan and use the more pearish appearance to your advantage. Perky boobs and perky butt are alright, but big things naturally sag.
This took me a year.
My diet is shit. I eat whatever I want. I just lift and cardio a bunch.
Im moving out to my own place this week. My diet will drastically change. I will be eating nothing but rotisserie chicken and broccoli for the forseeable future.
this is my goal and i think im pretty far but i cant make it any time soon since i cant shred at the moment.
took about a year, this was my original goal. though i dont think ill ever be satisfied. wanted more mass and then less fat and then etc etc
How rigorous are your guys routines? Do you find it hard to do what you do or does it come easy to you? First two weeks were very bad because I couldn't find the motivation, after that I learned to love it.

No idea where my bodyfat is, but if I'm not flexing I still have a little bit of a gut. I did BB.com's Big Man On Campus to start, then switched to Kris Gethin's 12 week program - now I'm back to BMOC. My diet has been pretty shit to be honest. Chipotle burritos and taqueria tacos. I just exercised more portion control and drank a little more than a gallon of water a day.
Goal body is Tom Hardy Warrior (like every other fucking anon out there) but with a smaller waist. I don't need that much core. I want that V taper to look good in fitted clothing.
My biggest motivations are the desire to push myself further than I ever have. Also my girlfriend is waaaaay prettier than I am and she lifts too. So I have to be at my best going into this relationship - especially if I don't want to get cucked in the summer months.
I'm not sure how long it will take because I going think I'll ever be satisfied. Been at it for a year and a half now and I'm liking what I see more and more. I'd say this time next year I'll be a sick cunt but why not have more?
Hi anon. <3
Yeah, I'm trying to keep a balance because I've /heard/ that the booty dimples are caused by a lack of fat, and as of right now my butt is mainly muscle.
That's a lot of progress, anon! Congrats!
Thanks anonnette, I've got a lot of cutting left to do before summer. And yeah I used the beard to mask all the weight gain I had in my face and I just got so many compliments on it that I decided to let it stay. I've got next to nothing for facial aesthetics anyways so the beard hides everything that aren't my green eyes.
You look like you've come a long way as well. What's your routine like? Did you change up your diet? My gf is a tiny qt3.14 latina who has an ass kind of like your own - she also wants more bubble to her butt. Any advice I might pass along?
This took me ~3 years. Technically the before pic was years before I actually started lifting but I looked the exact same. Just the best pic I had to showcase how far gone into auschwitz I had gone.
Aaaand Clark Kent is my current goal. I'm natty so I'll likely never get to his level of mass and bf% but I'd like to think that in maybe 2 years from now I could get close enough.
I personally haven't changed my diet much, which I probably should do to slim down my stomach.
For both of you guys I will say that I do a lot of weighted fire hydrants and donkey kicks, and I tend to feel them more so than squats!
I've read that squats are a meme for datass gains so that would make a lot of sense.
Mirin' brah. Great definition for your size. Weight? Height?
What's your diet like?
The right pic is my goal, not me, but I appreciate the comparison.
Thanks. 6' at 175 lbs. Diet wise I honestly just focus on hitting calories and protein goal. I don't drink soda or eat complete garbage, but I don't fret over carb/fat/protein ratio either.
Right on man
I'll be moved out on my own by the end of the week and my diet of rotisserie chicken and frozen broccoli will hopefully have me shredding down real quick.
Best of luck to you in reaching your goal my dude. Goal pic does look a bit smaller than yourself so it looks doable for certain.
