    A buddy in college won one of these competitions for muscle and fitness. He was already heavy into bodybuilding when he broke his femur playing rugby about a 2 months before the entry date. So he just gorged for 60 days, looked like absolute shit in the before pic, and then came back 6 months later bigger and leaner than before the injury.

    Never noticed you were in Tidewater^. I grew up in Yorktown and frequent VA Beach.

    This can be easily achieved with the right environment, though. Just stand under some high powered fluorescent lights. Bonus points for doing it outside at night in a shitty looking parking garage.

    Could be worse, completely pale like me. You think there's a chance to win natty?

    My before cut pics are even worse. Hoping to finish by end of Feb before my trip to NOLA :slayer:

    Spoke to one of the guys at the gym today.

    Turns out tht the guy who was benching heavy held the IPF world record in 2012. Also, the girl is the 3rd strongest powerlifter in Sweden in her weight class.

    Pretty cool.
    Also, everyone wears compression gear and lifting shoes and are stronger than me.

    Really want to start lifting a bit more seriously and figured being a bit more active on this thread would help me stay on track. So... hi!

    Started lifting in April, along with some running and swimming, but wasn't too consistent. Put on about 15 lbs though, so I must be doing something right. Currently following Greyskull LP per a friend's suggestion, but I think I'm still falling under "untrained". Big 3 are 125/170/215lbs, all at 5 reps.

    Starting pic for January:

    Here's to what's hopefully a great year!

    physical therapy has me doing ultrasound/electroshock/etc. and then rotator cuff strengthening. It actually feels pretty good to be like, doing something instead of sitting around pissed off at my shoulder.

    I just love the 200lb 5'8 guy with a "big frame" (who obviously also does not lift)

    Was feeling a bit fat today at the gym...

    ... but repped 3 sets of squats at 315 and felt like a boss. Do need to lean out a bit though - have lost dem cheekbones.
