As difficult it is to post “before” pictures on the internet, I’m stepping up to participate in this challenge to help me maintain my focus on achieving my goals. I’m 6ft and will be turning 45 in February. Back in June of 2017, I hit a lifetime high (or low) of 260lbs. In the summer of 2016, I had a whitewater rafting accident that resulted in ankle surgery. Although I recovered and was back on the water, training wasn’t a priority. Once I hit 260lbs, I couldn’t stand myself. Since June of 2017, I dropped down to 230lbs by November but hit a plateau. I decided to take the opportunity to focus on being anabolic through the holidays and started C.T.'s Best Damn Workout for Natural Lifters.
At this time, I’m 5 weeks into it and weigh 236.4lbs. I’ve made strength and muscle density gains over the last 5 weeks. I plan to stick to it for 6 weeks and then change up the routine. My overall goal is to get down to 200lbs. In my mid thirties, I trained like a bodybuilder and achieved fantastic results so I have a lot of experience to draw from. However, now that I’m in my mid forties, it’s a whole another game.
So here are my “before” pics at 236.4lbs. I’ll post on my diet, supplementation, training and challenges later.
