Welcome to the official (unofficial) T-ransformation 2016 Summer Shred Down Challenge. This 20 week competition from Jan 1st to June 1st will provide the perfect venue to test your mettle, push yourself, and uncover all that muscle you have worked to develop over the years.
Please read the opening post on the Announcement Thread if you havent as it does contain some more info
The rules are simple: To enter, simply post a 3 pose photo as your before pictures (Front totally relaxed, “Front Relaxed” and “Rear Relaxed” in body building standards). While these pictures are not strictly mandatory, we feel that by putting these up it will help make people serious and keep our retention rates up to the end. You can simply enter by saying “im in” or something to that effect, but please only commit if you do plan on sticking it through all the way to the end.
From June 1st to June 8th you will submit your after photos, which are the same as the entry/before photos. Please try to use similar lighting conditions and camera for an accurate comparison. Recommended clothing for photos is “tighty whities” or boxer-brief style underwear or posing trunks if you happen to have some.
Winner will be chosen by the members of T-Nation, both those who competed and those who did not will be able to vote. Prize will be the adulation and adoration of the internet lifting community, what more could you ask for!?
Guidelines For Posting: While we encourage lively discussion that is on topic, please note that this main thread is not the place for training logs, or weekly updates. Questions regarding lifting , diet, and fat loss are encouraged. Intermittent posts about how things are going are fine as well. Competitors may choose to post “progress photos” once per month, and may additionally respond to others request for more photos… Basically use your best judgement and try not to “clutter up” the thread with endless photos and posts.
Above all, this is meant to increase your fun and enjoyment out of training, and take you further than you would go casually with your diet… So let’s have fun, motivate each other, and get shredded!
