    Much much to modest man, to put it in perspective I hope to look like that. After a few cycles and I'm 12 years younger. Great job!

    That’s very kind of you, thanks

    Find out what works for you, repeat day after day even when a bit tedious and you will realise your genetic potential-but people think that takes a few years whereas in reality it’s more like a few decades.

    Spot on mate
    Its the repetitiveness and consistency that makes the difference
    I'm nearly 40 too, been taking bodybuilding seriously for about 6 years but actually training with weights for 20+

    Dude you look incredible-fair play.

    Yeah exactly-sticking to a nutrition plan, training hard enough day after day after day. That’s what builds and holds onto a good physique, embracing the tedium-it should become like brushing your teeth-it’s just something you do, a way of life etc.

    This puts a lot of people off because it is a boring and completely unsexy-you can’t sell monotony :lol:

    Thanks

    Its all depends on what you wanna achieve and how much work you're willing to put in
    Some people are happy to train, stay fit, look half decent whilst eating a relaxed diet and having a few beers
    Others wanna give it everything to be the best they can
    But you'll struggle to do both
    For me its about having a balance
    I love training and I enjoy the food I eat so that side of things is no effort
    I'll always make training fit around my day, not the other way round
    And you've gotta enjoy yourself, I'm definitely not that person who sticks to a diet on holiday
    A meal or night out now n again does you no harm

    I agree, finding a way to stay in shape and live a life where you are able to enjoy a variety of interests is key. Often finding balance can be the hardest thing!

    @Jamesalan which picture is the before and which is the after?

    Arm looks biggest in the 1st pic so I'm guessing that's end result?

    Hi Everyone

    I am new the forum.

    I guess I will post my experience and transformations through the years, there are some very experienced guys and great physiques on this forum and I will take any criticism and also hope to learn.

    I started lifting weights quite young at 15/16 years of age and had no idea what I was doing. When I was younger I always had major issues with how I looked. I wasn't fat but definitely had a lot of puppy fat and no real muscular development. To cut the long story short I ended up gaining a crazy amount of weight when I was around 18/19 and I weighed almost 18 stone. However I was still training and had some decent lifts under my belt. I then dropped all this weight in 2014 but I cant find the photos. I dropped the weight to go to Tomorrowland music festival.

    After I came back from the festival I couldn't stop eating to the point where I was ordering a large pizza 5 days a week on top of everything else I was eating and gained all the weight back on, I will still lifting away regardless.

    Fast forward to 2018 and I had booked to go to Tomorrowland again and I couldn't go the way I looked so it was time to cut, below is a 24 week transformation I dropped from 17 stone to 12.7 all natural except the tan :rofl:
    37488131_251941658930413_4474363265295581184_n.jpg

    After this I swore I wouldn't put the fat on ever again and this led to a whole list of problems over the next year. I was eating around 1500cals a day after this for about a year as I was scared to gain fat, I was training away but eventually I couldn't I was soo tired and fucked I stopped for about 5 months. My relationship with food was so bad, eating less than my girlfriend for about 3 weeks and then binge eating 10,000 cals on random weekends and this went on for a year and this was the below result. My body composition was fucked I was the same weight in the picture above but looked fat how strange?? lol this was 2019 and i had booked a trip the Orlando and I wasn't going like that.

    So I cut down again... calories were at 1500 and i worked up ti 1hr 45mins of cardio a day plus 5 days weight training. This was the below result.

    THEN COVID CAME!

    This was a blessing is disguise for me as it give me time to reflect on my horrible attitude towards food, I cant stress enough the effect this had on my mental health, I'm a naturally thick built guy and I was eating next to nothing to stay what I believed was a good shape. So with 5 months of gym closures I sat down and thought what do I want from the gym, and the answer was to get fucking big and to do this I needed to eat more. So I did.

    This was 3 months into my mass building phase and I was loving every minute of it.

    I then wanted to go on my first anabolic cycle so I ran 500mg of TestE/Wk for 12 weeks and this was the result.

    120966883_1795170600659507_2313826865350838788_n.jpg

    Gyms have now closed again but I have got enough equipment to keep me going, I have been off test since the start of December and I have continued to keep pushing the food and training as heavy and hard as I can.

    162849781_170871951421358_2015354784330129879_n.jpg
    When the gyms open again (I'm in Northern Ireland so fuck knows when) I am going to start cutting down and start my 2nd cycle.

    Sorry for the long post it could have been a lot longer! If you guys have any advice for me on my next cycle or just general advice on my physique I would be very grateful! I hope to document my next cut completely and if people wanted me to post it on here i will.

    Thanks in advance:thumb:
