jk. seriously, though, awesome job!


I'm with you HEYO. I have nothing to really show, but it exercise/fitness is more of marathon than sprint. And he's right, each person has their own goals and genetics. Improvements will happen, I promise.
Lol, oh lord. Not that guy. I'd personally like to go for more of a look like in this picture below.

These aren't the best poses but you can see the progress. These before pics are from January of 2010.



These after pics are from August 2010.



I'm continuing to work on adding more size and defining my abs.

I used to weigh in around 180 at 5'10 that was about a year ago. i started walking everywhere and lifting weights just about every other day(i'd skip a few days if my muscles hurt or something) but now i'm at about 150 at 5'11...no working out doesn't make you taller i just stopped slouching lol. but i'm pretty proud of myself. if i find any pictures of a before i'll post up the progress

Isn't that a flexibility/stretching issue? You're too tight so you're a little hunched?? I am probably wrong...

working out and lifting weights makes you wider which makes you look shorter in comparison, like skinny guys will look taller than buffer guys the same height if you don't compare them side by side, but maybe your hunching over like already mentioned? I really doubt it'll really make you shrink otherwise I'd be screwed =p

If anything it improved my posture and made me look a inch taller if anything, but balance is the key, like people who do nothing but benchpresses their shoulders will start to lean fowards giving bad posture habits.

The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle. I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.

To my knowledge, the only scientifically proven way that weightlifting could make you shorter is if you've somehow managed to damage your growth plates if you're still in a stage of growth.

However, it's far more likely that you would damage your growth plates playing a relatively physical sport such as soccer or football rather than weightlifting.

As the people above have already mentioned, I'd think it's more likely that perhaps you have issues with your posture that certain lifting routines might have exacerbated or created in and of themselves or it's quite possibly nothing more than a perception issue where, like the guy directly above me noted, you might just think you're shorter because you've gotten wider but gained no real appreciable height to compensate for the width.

Also how do you guys like my tarzan WIP??? Also If i find this on any webite selling something, I will sue the pants off of the one responsible. I use no supplementation or magic weight loss pills or anything. And If I find my pics anywhere other than photobucket or here, I will seek legal action. >:C I have the full res originals so I can back up my claims.

I'm glad to see that you've made some impressive progress. Keep us updated on how everything goes for you including the wrestling! I was a wrestler in high school as well along with several martial arts I did on the side.
