As I look on the internet for bodybuiding information I always come across these amazing 12-week or 6 month body transformations. I’ve only been at this for a bit, but I don’t see my body making any miraculous transformations. If anything, I get the impression from everyone here that it take years to get an excellent physique. I guess I’m wondering if these “transformations” are for real or not.
When I see them I feel like I’m not making enough progress or something…or that I have bad genetics. I don’t think they’re realistic, since if they were really possible then everyone would be walking around ripped in 12 weeks or half a year. Anyway, what are your thoughts? I’m asking here since I’ll probably get people with the most amount of experience giving me their thoughts.
Also, I’m wondering when should you start seeing some definitely changes in the mirror and is it really a matter of how much body fat you have? If so, if you do have enough body fat to cover your muscles should you purely gauge progress by lifts vs. the mirror?
