Reverse Transformation


#1


I was apart of the get ripped crowd, that abs were all I really cared about. So i lifted when i needed to, ran long distance all the time, and did crunches in between sets of everything. I got ripped and all but i was small.

Semesters at college took their toll, lots of drugs and drinking and i could never lift consistently. Finnally i started to hear of Joe defranco's training and I'm a little on point now, carrying alot of extra fat, but im learning how to lift with intensity and not worrying about my abs.

Here is what i started at lean

#7

You got fat? Did you get stronger at least? Where's the legs can't you read?


#8

I don't think the idea is just to get fatter dude...


#9

im getting alot stronger now, i have legs pics ill post


#10

I don't either, but according to what is posted that is all that has happened so far. That's why he should post stats and more pics etc..


#11

How much did you weigh in the first shot? How tall are you?


#12

first shot I was about 155, the new pics are im about 195

Stats:
squat - 225x5
bench - 215x5
deadlift -280x5

I used to cut by eating chicken with rice cakes and peanut butter every meal.

Im on ws4sbIII right now and i like the program.

Consistency is my biggest problem now especially in college, But after watching the STRONG documentary i realize to get my ass movin and lift some weight


#13

I haven't had pizza in, Oh... 13-14 months. kinda making me a little jealous


#14

Sorry man.. I can see how you'd think I was replying to you... That statement was directed towards the OP... kind of qualifying your statement... :slightly_smiling:


#15

Oh ok I see now, my bad lol.


#16

Also, now that I see some stats, that Bench is kinda up there but the squats should be much higher along with the deads. Remember that that shit is like a full body workout. Deads and squats, all mothafucking day (not literally). But, you have made progress.


#17

Your arms do actually look a bit bigger but you have some weird fat thing going on.

Pizza isn't a good bodybuilding food by the way


#18

first things first-why not get some toppings on your pizza??

it seems to be missing the chicken,bacon,peperoni,vegetables etc

second-why photoshop out ur face in 1 pic but then not bother in the next pic?

third-photos of pizzas are not supposed to be rated-this isnt fat basterds anonymous

add some real pictures and people will give real ratings


#19

How can i get big leik you tell me ur secret


#20

whats wrong with loads of carbs with loads of fat/saturated fat most likely right before you go to bed?
