I used to drink the chocolate Slim Fast's whenever my mom got them, because they tasted good.. They are too expensive though..

Luckily I'm back in a working out mood.. Usually It's off and on, and I don't do anything for a few months till I start to feel a little chubby. Usually just play Baseball, Ultimate Frisbee, Tennis, and then Basketball on Sundays. Usually 12pm-9pm, but it's not intended as a workout..

Current/Healthy/Goal:155??/Not sure/Just toning up. (5'11)
Start: 4/21/08
Supplements: None.
Intake: Whatever I want.. usually healthy stuff though. I've been gorging for the past two-three weeks or so for some reason, and wasting money by eating out a lot.. Yesterday I started eating smaller meals to where I wasn't "stuffed". I usually skip breakfast because I wake up right before school.. :/
Workout: Ultimate Frisbee twice a week, and Tennis every day just about. Free weights, push-ups, and crunches around bedtime if I'm bored (Usually every other day), then shower and sleep. Sometimes hit the bag up for a bit if I have nothing to do. Pull-ups once I get a bar installed in my room, I don't feel like jogging to the Elementary to use the bars they have. Might run and ride my bike a bit.

I'll update when I feel fit, or achieved the look I want.
I guess I'll be going for one of the two.. Prob the first because I don't have a bench press and don't like gyms.. (Guess I'll be working out more than when I'm bored)


I think this is the only pic I have with my shirt off.. Taken the mid of last summer I believe, hanging out with friends. (A pretty bad pic of us, but oh well.. We were supposed to act like models, hence the head tilt.) I look pretty much like this right now, maybe a little bit more hairy.

good luck bro. make sure to stick to the guide. obviously no one can stay on track 100%, but do the best you can to follow it. let me know how you feel afterwards and how much wieght you lost. i lost like 4+ lbs just taking that alone.

cheers to you bro!

Height 6'1
Current: 175 w/13% body fat
Goal 180 w/10% body fat
Started: Since last summer
Supplements: Whey Protein
Intake: Lots of Eggs, meats, wheat, etc.
Workout: Heavy lifting, (205+ benchpress currently, squats, deadlifts, dumbbells ), sprinting, and started playing Basketball once a week.

I once use to be 130 pound 6'0 back 4years ago or so (age 19)! Started working out last summer and was at 160pounds. As someone previously stated, your bodyfat percentage makes a huge difference on how you look! If you are going go abs, you need less than 8% bodyfat. If you are going for bulking, EAT!!!

When i was 130pounds (yes skinny shit i know), i did have a 6pack! Today, my stomach is flat (basically lost the 6pack as i started bulking) but you can still see the lines on my 6pack with no debt to it.

My advice is to everyone is to go on the bodybuilding forums! excellent threads there.

I just picked up some Muscle Milk Light in Chocolate flavor last night. For anyone contemplating, I highly recommend it. It tastes fucking delicious and I can already feel a boost in energy throughout the day. I can't comment on muscle growth yet because it's obviously too early to tell.

watch out, muscle milk for what it is is HIGH in calories and fat.. if you're bulking, it's great but there's better things out there..

Muscle Milk is delicious though.

Cyto-Gainer will help you build FAST.. 570 calories per shake, yum.

It's the light version, 1/3 the fat and 44% fewer calories.

ABB protein drinks are GREAT... you can do 50g of protein with only 240 calories opposed to what, 32g of protein and 350 calories in the large muscle milks.

Tranz, if I were you I'd just pick up a bottle of ON whey from bodybuilding.com, mix it with 2% milk (one scoop and 8 oz of milk you'll be at about 35g of protein, much better then that small muscle milk)

Hey guys I played sports competitively up through college and have been pretty unactive since then (2 years). I work from home, but travel quite a bit and have the hardest time staying motivated with diet/workout. The 'competition' of sports always gave me the drive to stay on track. These days, I'll work out hard for 2 weeks and then do nothing for 3. What can you guys recommend for strategies to help stay on track and stay motivated!

switch up your routine every 3/4 weeks.. make it interesting.. If it isn't exciting then you're in trouble. If you WANT to do it, then you'll love it.

or just tape a picture of this guy to your morning mirror..

We can't really recommend anything except to say continue to work out. Only you can motivate yourself. Find out why you want to workout? What are your goals? What do you want to acheive? Figure those things out and go from there. ...OK here's a reason, summer is upon us, you wanna look good on the beach don't ya?! Well then, get your lazy @$$ to the gym dude!

Got any links? All the whey protein supplements I see from ABB & ON are only 20g protein.

I doubt it man. You may be surprised if you got your bodyfat count taken. You may actually have to drop a few pounds. But it all depends on your frame and body type.

When I graduated high school I was 5'10" - 120lbs, small frame. I was very active, but I didn't lift very often. I didn't reach 140 until I was 23/24. For the past year I've been working out, and changed my diet. I haven't taken it truly seriously until the last 3 or 4 months and have jumped from 142 to 155.

Even if you are in shape now, remember the shape you were in when you played competitive sports. This should be a good motivator. For me, my motivation is I dont want to get fat or have high cholesterol. Besides, you will live longer and feel better if you eat healthy and excercise. Sound like you have a pretty busy schedule. MAKE some time to work out more consistently. Dont go for those three week stints. Try to work it in so its a normal routine when you can. I dont think the on - off thing works. Do you have added flexibility working from home?

My competition was beating high cholesterol. (hereditary) I am 28. 5-9. 160. I lost 25 pounds last year, and fixed my cholest. I would say 80% was eating habits because I have always been active. Is all I do is hit the gym 4-5 times a week, and eat healthy during the week, and then have a more laid back diet on the weekends. Good luck man

Cable Crunches (youtube it).

My Ab routine is 4 sets of 15 weighted crunch machine

4 sets of 20 cable crunches

4 sets of 14 decline sit ups.

then I do about 500 crunches after that.. whole thing takes me about 45-50 minutes.
