After being fat for 15 years, I decided I would transform my body for my senior year. I started towards the end of 11th grade and by the time vacations were over (5 month total) I went from being severely obese to semi-muscular. I dont have pictures of that transformation because I had no digital camera then.
By age 21, I hit my peak. Two injuries, me slacking, junk food eating for 2 years, and looking myself at the mirror made me realize it was time for another transformation. I registered on this forum to learn about supplements that would help me get my body back later and found this thread: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...9841261&page=6 (credit card in waist was required to enter contest to show no fraud).
I joined that transformation contest and took first pic Aug 18th and last picture November 10th. I think I achieved my goal.
(All front relaxed pics)
There are more pictures in my bodyspace of the full transformation.
I received several emails and PM's asking me what I did so I decided to make this thread to answer those questions here.
5 times a week, one muscle group per day (chest/back/shoulder/legs/arms) lifted as hard as I could.
in those three months, I played racquetball about 4 times, jogged only 5 times, and played soccer one time. All the fat I lost, I lost from training hard. I barely even warmed up before workout, so if you lift hard and have a diet in check, you should be able to lose the fat.
There are some that say you should treat abs like every other muscle and train them every other day... I just did them every day. After workout, while watching TV, before taking a shower, and any time I was bored doing nothing in my room.
This is where I might get flamed. During these three months, I only ate solids for lunch (two chicken breasts, can of tuna, or two lean meat pieces). For breakfast, meal, and dinner, I had a 48ounce blender filled with 6 scoops of protein powder and oats and peanut butter and other things. I divided those 48 ounces into 4 servings of 12oz to take throughout the day. I am sure this isnt the best diet, but I went for it because I hate cooking and cleaning and I did not feel dizzy or in lack of strength at the gym. In these 3 months, I have had NO cheat meals (other than sushi 3 or 4 times because my friends know that is my only weak spot).
Casein, whey protein, animal pak, animal omega, lax oil, white flood, green mag, purple wraath. (NO fat burners).
I will start eating more cooked meals and incorporate cardio. I will try the EC stack http://www.hotnfit.com/ecstack.htm for a month and see how much I can cut.
If you have any, I will try and answer them here. I dont claim to be a pro at diet or working out routines, I am just a very dedicated and motivated person when it comes to wanting my body a certain way.
