As I sit here holding a shoe, contemplating what this post is about, I realize that I have no idea what im going to write. Even less so why I am writing this. I guess something inside me tells me that some guys here can look at this and realize that they too can make some progress. Or maybe its the fame, glory and the women. Hell, I don’t know, maybe I just like getting flamed.
So without further adeu this is what this thread is about. Today concludes my first year of training. The picture above is from my 19th birthday, January 24th, 06. And the picture to the right was taken a few days ago. Odly enough, my gray sketchers havent changed one bit.
I thought about posting in the “Physique and Performance” forum but my physique is a bit lacking and my performance is questionable(No, thats not what she said). Besides, im not about to post pictures without a shirt on. Theres already plenty of other skinny dudes doing that these days.
Anyway, in a year I went from being 130lbs, at night and with jeans/shoes on. To a leaner 182(morning weight/naked). At first I just wanted to look decent, you know, alright arms, maybe a manly chest, big quads. Now I wanna be an animal. I wanna be big and pull big… _way _ big. So I wanna break 200 now. And then who knows.
I want to thank everyone here at T-Nation for helping me through. Not just the trainers, not just the guys who gave me good advice, everyone. Even those guys who gave shitty advice or flamed me. At the end of the day they taught me a valuable lesson–to experiment and find out what works for you.
All in all I hope you guys have a great year. And I’ll report back my progress in a year or when i reach 200lbs, whichever happens first.
P.S. I think I realize now why I wrote this. Anyone care to tell me what my bodyfat is in the second picture?(I included a shoe). Thanks in advance.
