    Exactly a year ago today I strarted lifting seriously for the first time in my life. Although this past year has been full of stebacks, it has also been full of amazing achievements. To anyone just strating up lifting, keep at it, get your diet in check, and you will witness amazing results.

    Strength Progress:

    March 06
    Benchpress: 1RM 215, 155x10
    Squats: 135x8 on the smith machine
    DB Row: 55x10
    Underhand Pullups: 5
    Widegrip Pullups: 0
    Deadlift: 135x5


    March 07
    Benchpress: 1RM at 295+, 225x12
    Squats: 275x8 a2g
    DB Row: 100x10
    Underhand Pullups: 20++
    Widegrip Pullups: 12 with extra 35lb
    Deadlift: 335++x5


    At this time last year before my first cut I was 185lb at about 16-17% body fat at 6'. At the end of my cut in May (on 1800cal :rofl:) I dropped to 168lb and I was about 10%. Surprisingly enough I was able to gain a significant ammount of strength. Since then I started a clean bulk and continued to grow stronger throughout the year. Right now I am 187lb at around 11%.

    EDIT:Sorry no before or after pictures, they all were deleted when my coputer crashed recently.:wtc: :o Some of you guyes know how I look now though.

    Wow. Looks like some good results. Continue to keep up the good work. I have found sticking to the diet really works. Not to mention the unlimited valuable resources OT has to offer.

    I really must thank F&N for the majority of knowledge I have gained in the past year as well.

    Light 2-3 sets of 15+ reps. Basically bringing down the intensity level.

    Slightly better stamina. Not a big deal, ever since I stoped taking it I haven't really seen any slowdown of progress. Creatine is by no means a miracle supp.

    Well I'm sure some of the weight I gained was water/fat. But fat gain was minimal, if I almost look leaner than when I was 168lb of skin and bones.
