    So a year ago this gentleman came to me.
    He weighed 230lb and was clinically obese.
    He had never weight trained before.
    His back was described by my chiro (we go to the same one) as "at the level of a 70 year old".
    So training was very limited!
    One year later he dropped 80lb and competed.
    This fulfilled a huge goal for him and was a real mile stone.
    He has really caught the bug and starting Monday we will be building him up to compete again and hopefully place next year!
    Although he was lean his mid section had loose skin (curse of losing 80lb) but by next year it will be tighter.
    Obviously it was done 100% naturally.

    It's NEVER too late to get into training/competing even with severe disadvantages!

    He's the one with the barbell in hand

    Tbf the lose skin isnt as bad as expected! Has his back issues got any better?

    Superb job well done to him!! And also kudos to you Con - I dont think people realise how helpful it is to have the right support when having a lot of weight to shift.

    I am not sure if he wants me to post starting pictures I will ask him when I see him.
    He has a desk job plus at 5ft9 230lb he was "obese" but not so super fat that strolling to the water cooler would have built him huge calves lol!
    No his back issues are still there it's a proper degeneration of the spine but overall it is improved.
    The only way the pain will ever go away is with a very serious operation and he's not sure if he will do this yet.

    Well done to him.

    On a side note, is this awful feminine posing ever going change in physique do you think? I think id be far more inclined to give it a go if it wasnt so...erm (trying not to be condescending to homosexuals here :lol:)

    ...not that getting on a stage in fuck all clothes and oil is uber hetro either, but you get what i mean.

    No I can't see physique changing tbh.
    It's huge now....most NPC shows have 3-5 mens physique to each bodybuilder!

    I actually never got round to asking!

    Currently we're working on getting him ready for a natural bodybuilding show (not physique) next year.
    After his show we have kept his weight 4kg over his stage weight and he has been tightening up and growing nicely.
    I will have to remember to keep updating this thread as we go along.
