    Motivation, dedication and busting your ass are more important than the kind of program of the kind of diet your on.

    and

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    ~1 year of actually working out (more like 6 months :hs:).
    130ish -> 174ish

    last pics were 3-4 weeks ago.. i'm at 181-182 now .. :x:

    program: lazy fuck that works out for 2 months at a time and then stops for 5 months. but now i'm in business and my growth in the past 2 months has been better than ever before.. higher test dose aint hurtin' either, though it hasnt really started to kick yet.. 2 more weeks and i should be good.

    i was on 200mg every two weeks for about a year.. after a while you dont really notice it, though when it first started working, i felt the difference.. it was not that big a dose, so it wasnt anything too spectacular, but definitely an increase from what i was naturally at..

    I am noticing much better weight gain/strength/facial hair:)hs:) with the ~200mg/week.. another few weeks and i should be topped out and riding it for a while. just having to shave every single day sucks ass.. and my face is oily as fuck.

    as far as strength is concerned.. its weird. there's like a little dude in your head that makes you go pick up something 10lbs heavier than you first considered picking up.. like for bench if I was gonna do some presses, typically i'd do like 55-60-65.. instead I'm like, eh.. and just go straight to the 70's and work up from there.. i wanna stock pile a little and see waht 500mg/week feels like :coold:

    august 06 and a month into cutting...and doing a shitty job with injuries
    [​IMG]

    I ate pretty clean (no junk foods), I eat alomost nothing processed since I cook at home or eat at very nice restaurants, get lots of sleep, nurse my shoulder. I work two muscle groups per day, on a 3 day cycle. Now I'm doing cardio between hip problems and shin splints. Not that I've made a ton of progress or anything, but I've done a pretty good job and benefitted immensly from this forum.

    I had a belly, and it was fucking me up. Every time I looked at it I was disgusted. I also couldn't go to a pool party because I was too fat. I plan on bulking again in 5 weeks.
    This is what it looks like when I sit down:

    Well, here is what happened:

    I swam from October to Feburary (05-06 season) for the second year on my highschool varisity team. That braught me down to about 185 with a lot of muscle loss. Then right after season I was determined to not get fat again, so I started a cut that lasted from Feburary untill May. After that I maintained for about a month and I started a clean bulk in July. I plan to continue bulking untill December and then I will cut again just in time for spring break. Ideally, I want to be about 200 pounds before college starts at a relatively lean bf%, but Ill have to see how that goes.

    Other than that...all I can really recomend for those seeking change is to work had and to just hit that gym.

    Thanks, I just wish I wasnt so paranoid about eating a lot, which is slowing my bulk down.

    my shoulder is so fucked up again that I cannot lift, so why not cut? Oh yeah, because I've had shin splints for a week.
