T Nation

Amateur Progress Shots


I’m 20 y/o, 5’10 and weigh about 217 on creatine. Work out once or twice a week depending on work schedule.

A couple pics so it might take a bit to post them all. Fist picture is from right before this past christmas.

Yes the pictures suck! I don’t have a regular camera.

light weight. yeeeah buddy

What are your goals? What workout/diet are you doing to obtain that goal?

Youve gotten bigger, but you looked half starved in the first picture.

I think its funny how T-Nation turns everyone into a hardass. Werent you yelling at me about how un-hardcore I was on my thread when you looked close to your before picture only 3 months earlier?

Keep eating. Lift more than once or twice a week. Figure something out. Train late at night or early in the morning. I dont think once or twice a week is really going to let you get enough stimulus time in to grow much.

Once or twice a week?

Give up now. Save yourself some time. If you don’t have the fire in ya to go at least 4 times a week when you’re 20, what do you expect to do in your 30’s? 40’s?

well I work 60 hrs a week in a lumber yard. It’s a wee bit hard to find the extra energy :wink:
I’d always love to gain more muscle mass, but I’m in no hurry. I’d say I’ve made good work since the beginning of the year. I just don’t know why I’m a 3.1 instead of like an 8 or 9

You’ve made great gains. Good job!

Because people are being honest. You’re asking people to rate your physique not your progress. You’ve made good progress, but you still have a ways to go before you get an 8 or 9 (as most of do).

You should post your diet and program. If you are only hitting the iron a few times a week there’s probably a way to get more out of the time you have.

You’ve got to be kidding.

Look at the other posts in this forum.

This is what an 8 looks like around here:

http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do?id=1542057

You don’t look like that.

This is what a 3 looks like:
http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do?id=1535575
http://www.T-Nation.com/readTopic.do?id=1545898

That’s pretty much what you look like (and I had to leave some out, there are some guys who got a three on here who look significantly better than you do.)

You may have made some progress going to the gym once or twice a week for the last 4 months or so, but you are neither big nor lean.

Your posts in some other threads are starting to make more sense now…

lol yes guys, I was kidding.

you went from not sexy to very sexy … you should probably ignore comments from most of these people

These should be before shots, train for a year and post again. This isn’t the website for guys who train “once or twice a week depending on (their) work schedule”. Not a good excuse anyway
