I just finally figured out how to post pics and am still having trouble! smh. :P I can't see them when I click "preview". And is there a limit? I'd hoped to post at least 4, but I hope the ones I have so far show up. I hope it works!

Here is me in 2009, before I started training and then in 2012, and a recent shot. 999649_618669454811485_578189095_n.jpg

The definition will come easy, just focus on the your target size for now; Muscle is much easier to maintain than it is to build, so when you're happy with your results, it'll be easy enough to cut down while maintaining your muscle mass.

Keep up the great work

whoa whoa didn't see this; posted still thinking we were on page 1; that is friggin awesome. Btw I wish men looked that define at 10% bodyfat

As far as my recent accomplishment. I made a post on facebook saying that if my status got 30 likes, I'd run a 9 day marathon of my obstacle course (which I usually run only 2-3x a week) and that if it got 50 likes, I'd do a double one of the days.

It got 50+ likes, and it was tough, but I managed to do all 10 runs, throwing in a second day where I did a double for 11 runs in 9 days. Just finished the last run this morning but may do one more to make it twelve.

ossil Park is an obstacle course I run; .6 miles per lap.

Jog half a lap for warmup and walk the other half.

2 laps with all obstacles (14 obstacles/lap) then jog 2 laps at a faster pace (stopping only for the 2-3 bonus obstacles)

Excluding warmup 4 laps (obstacle laps + jogged laps) averages to 44-46 mins; with yesterday being a personal best at 42.5 mins, and this morning breaking yesterday's personal best at 39 mins.


There are many stations, but with 4/10 of the stations being pull up bars (well one is a set of monkey bars); averaging 97 pull ups(or variants of) per run, 1067 pull ups over the course of the marathon

I agree, with you there, but females naturally carry more fat than us males so, it is understandable that we have to work a little harder.

Me too! I've been doing a bodyweight routine three or four times a week and swimming twice a week, and my upper arms and back/shoulders are starting to have definition. It's really encouraging to actually see some progress--after losing the initial weight, it's been so slow building muscle that sometimes I lose sight of how much I've actually gained.

Maybe I'll try and post pictures tonight when I get off work.

Been weightlifting for a year, on and off, am not consistent enough in the kitchen, (I can take about a month of sweet potato, broccoli and chicken etc then start craving pizza).

Yesterday I finally graduated to full dead-hang pullups, 'cause I got tired of being the one using the assisted machine or doing chin-ups. Small step but it's got me excited!

Love the definition in my back from deadlifts too - it was a great feeling when I finally moved up to 45's (about 4 months ago).

@Diodone: Man that is INCREDIBLE progress, holy cow - awesome.

15 miles last Saturday. That's the farthest I've gone so far. Every other week or every third week until January is going to be a new distance record. Working towards my first full marathon in January.

I started running the summer of 2010. I had to do week 1 of C25K for three weeks before I felt like I was ready to progress. THAT's how far I've come.

Since I'm coming back from a minor injury (which, at one point I was afraid was something much worse).

I can now, once again, get through a 1.5 hr Irish dance class without being in excruciating pain. I also have much better control and placement, so I'm not kicking myself in the shins like I always used to.

Also my feet are so strong now that pointe doesn't hurt my toes anymore. My arches still get sore, but that's because they're working hard.

I managed to survive my Crossfit Gym's internal competition. I am pretty happy completing every workout handed to me with the insane time limits.

Oh whoa, Valcarrie, GREAT JOB hahaha oh man, this thread is so motivating.

Today I finally felt safe enough from an achilles injury 6 months ago to head back into my 1 mile time trial. Put up a 6:21 today, 9 seconds off from my PR of 6:12. I had way too much left in the tank though so it makes me wonder if I could've matched it.

Then I went to the gym still in my short shorts (2 inch inseam) and did a bunch of squat variations and other explosive leg stuff. BECAUSE SUB-6, I'VE GOT YOU LOCKED ON.

I've been suffering severe overtraining syndrome for the past 9 months, and my physiotherapist says that I only need to abstain from serious lifting for about 5 more weeks, and then I can just start lifting again. Sure was tough sitting those 9 months out! Defenitely an achievement if you're an addict like me I'm thinking of doing allpro's simple beginner routine to kind of get the hang of it and then I'll make a few schedules of my own. Change intensity on a mino/mesocyclar basis and mostly stick with basic exercises. After that I think I'll do some heavy lifting/hypertrophy stuff. My goal is to go back to my previous stats (95 kg with 14% bodyfat) and BEYOND!
