Getting Healthier, Bigger, and Stronger


Down another 5 pounds! At 161. A parasite, now that I think of it, is the only explanation for this. At least the antibiotic is working.


Dude I hope you’re not going to shit out a dead 5lb tapeworm or something


Nah, he’s just shitting out billions of amoebae. And then his colon has to heal from the damage they did…


That sounds about right, haha.


Wouldn’t that be something? I’d be 5’9”, 155 lbs (my starting point 2 years ago).


You’d still be a much stronger 155 though. If you do shit out a 5lb dead worm pics are needed lol.


:slightly_smiling_face: I’ll be sure to keep that in mind Brett


Almost passed out a whole bunch of times during today’s workout. Super nauseous and uncomfortable now, but my normal stomachache is surprisingly absent. Accessory work volume will have to be lowered.

I just can’t seem to start my deadlifts with a straight back.


That’s what I weighed at your age.


Hope for the future?


You’re off to a better start for sure.


That was me on my 17th birthday.


I know, it just frustrates me that I could have been at a 450-475 pull by now had I not gotten sick.


You got lots of time. When you get that pull, that number won’t mean anything anymore. You’re in a great spot.


Thanks for the encouragement. It means a lot coming from someone as strong as you, haha.


@T3hPwnisher meanwhile in AP English…


If you want extra credit, tell your teacher that the photo is an example of solipsism, not nihilism, haha.

But good to see Nietzsche brought up in a positive light regarding nihilism.


Pun Intended?

Jokes aside, late to the thread but watching with interest. Should be amazing how quickly your numbers shoot up.


Thanks man…I’m hoping for it. I’ve been in a calorie deficit for a year, so we’ll see what happens. I might be hitting that 450 deadlift sooner than I thought. Eating 4000-4500 calories a day, so my weight should balloon up back to 180-185 as well. I am hoping my Bench shoots up…I lost about 30 pounds on that. I was at 215-220, but I’m now stuck at 185-190. Generally, upperbody lifts are supposed to correlate with body weight.


Ill use that as my excuse for zero bench progress in the last 12 months

One hell of a rebound man. Jealous of your calorie intake. Im at 2300 daily for maintainance.


Well, I’m much weaker than I’ve ever been. I’m going to be nice to myself and attribute this to the antibiotic. Had to squeeze a session in at the school’s pathetic excuse of a fitness center, gym by me is closed.
