For anyone not keeping up with the official thread, here’s my final submission for the 2018 T-ransformation challenge.

(Open image to view the side-by-side)

Jan 1: 265 lbs
Apr 1: 277 lbs
Jun 1: 260 lbs

Shoulders/arms seem a little fuller, waist seems a little tighter and moobage looks like its gone down a little (maybe an optimistic assessment lol). Put in decent work dropping 17lbs the last two months. who knows where I’d be if I had actually put in six months of decent work. Here’s to winning most improved in the 2019 T-ransformation challenge.

Coming back from a too long hiatus. Moved gyms so now I lift with my fiancé at Planet fitness, no barbells. Only DBs, smith machines and cables. Workout done with short rests. 1.5-2min between exercises, 30s-1min between sets

Numbers aren’t great, but expecting a strong rebound coming off this break. Will be building volume back up over time


#347

Sorry to hear that! :laughing:

Sounds like you just entered a bodybuilding phase.


#348

Not the worst thing in the world honestly. I’ve shifted more towards BB-esque training anyway so not having a barbell isn’t a huge setback. Plus we both have a little weight to lose so hopefully working out and meal planning together will put a fire under both our asses


#349

Are you ok man?


#350

I think it’s awesome when couples train together. I hope it goes well for you (even if it’s at Planet Fitness)!


#351

Yeah I’m avoiding the couples-workout pitfall of trying to train her. I just let her do her booty workouts while I train and then we do cardio together after. And honestly the the planet fitness I go to now has WAY more really jacked dudes than the little hole in the wall gym I was going to


#352

Honestly don’t know. I think planet fitness is changing who am as a person. Soon I’ll be calling everyone brah and yelling at people who get lunk alarmed

8/9/18

Alright guys, I’m back. My kid’s back in school and I have more “me” time so it’s time to kick my training back into gear and get after it. I’m back at my old gym because I realized I like working out alone better. My consistency doesn’t revolve around someone else’s consistency, and my fiancé was not a consistent workout partner lol. Gonna build my way up with some layers

Weights felt way heavier than they should have, surprised how much strength I’ve lost on my lower body. Whatever. Goals for current training cycle are to build back to a 225 push Press and a 455 TDBL.

First week of training is in the books. Gonna add another layer to my workouts, starting with incline bench tomorrow.
