Looking forward to doing this for the first time. I think it will certainly inspire me to get fit quicker.
My blog will be up soon!
I will be trying to increase my muscle size over the next 6 weeks and then try to lose the fat around the stomach for the rest of the 12 weeks. I will be hitting the gym around 4 times per week and split my workouts into bodyparts. Afterwards I will probably be doing HIIT to lose weight.
Height: 6' 1"
Body fat mass: 21.8kg
My transformations blog is below.
Starting pics (I took two from side because as my mum says half of my problem is posture, so first is normal posture, second is good posture)
Date pics (Included two, one to show original photos taken today, one to show collage made today)
I'm in again, hopefully going to stick it out this time!!
*I've changed these today (Tues. 3rd July) because they looked like they'd been taken on a gameboy colour camera attachment*
Check out my blog here [it's fairly boring, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't!]
I have taken the pics from my webcam and put the date stamp on it. Hope that's OK. Wasn't able to include pics of my legs on it though. Will take separate pics of that later.
I don't know if you can post these here but these are my stats:
Bodyfat %- 11.7%
Hoping to put on some serious muscle by the end of september, hopefully get it up to 72kg.
Thought I'd give this ago, not sure how much of a transformation I'll make in 12 weeks, as I'm aiming to slightly reduce body fat and build muscle. I doubt the changes will be drastic, but hey who knows!
I will start up a blog when I get to the gym in the week, but it won't be tomorrow, as I competed today and right now I'm feeling exhausted, but I might go scout the local gyms, as I need to find a decent one for when I'm at home for the next month or so.
Here's my entry to the Transformation Contest. My goal is to lose body fat as well as maintaining/building muscle, and as I don't have one of the machines that can measure it available to me, I'm doing it by my body measurements so I hope that's okay!
My body stats at the moment are:
Upper Arms: L=11.5in R=11.5in
Thighs: L=23in R=23in
Calves: L=14.5in R=14.5in
My favourite part of my body is my upper back as I seem to have lost the majority of my body fat so far from there, but I can't wait to lose even more!
I've provided my weight, however because I do weights A LOT, I don't know whether me dropping/not dropping weight will be an accurate determination of whether I've lowered my bodyfat percentage? I guess that will be for the judges to decide!
Here are my starter pictures
Proof of Date:
Good luck to everyone, I can't wait to see all of your transformations in 12 weeks time!
If anyone wanted to follow my progress here's the link to my transformation blog on TSR!
Reserved for my entry, will edit once I've uploaded the pics.
Hey guys, my name's Pete and I'm currently 183cm at around 74kg.
I'm looking to use this summer to mainly lose body fat (whilst maintaining as much muscle mass as possible) and hopefully at the same time improve my CV fitness and raw strength.
I'm currently eating at a slight calorific deficit, and my gym routine consists mainly of powerlifting/olympic weightlifting movements (still trying to get the technique right on olympic lifts) with weighted dips, pull-ups, situps etc.
Going on holiday for a week this Saturday, so really I'll be starting properly when I get back.
Here are some photos
So I have entered once again and this time I want to stick it out to the end whatever I look like
I am going to try and loose a pound a week for the next 12 weeks. Therefore just under a stone How I took the back pic last time, I have no idea because this time it was so much harder
Hi everyone, here's my entry!
I'm trying to lose fat, and will also be measuring in terms of weight.
Starting weight: 14st10
And here is my blog: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2047210
Yo! Would like to get a waist back, lost it somewhere in exam time, but just generally lose body fat and get more in shape.
Am 19, 5'3 and about 10 stone. I go to the gym and cycle quite a lot but I am so greedy so main challenge is to cut the crap out from my diet and see how it goes. Good luck to everyone!
I'm 18 and have piled on about 2 stone in the last year and a bit, due to simple overeating.
My aim? To lose fat all over, gain muscle, improve posture and become fitter in general. I'm not so worried about weight. I just want to change my physical appearance (flatter tummy, smaller thighs, more defined waist..)
Bring on the pics... (yay mismatching underwear..)
Here's my blog, feel free to post suggestions and the like! I need lots of motivation as I'm sure all of us do http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2047795
Age 21: Started lifting exactly a year ago simply addicted to it now (power lifting)... it's my everyday fuel .
The most electrifying man on student room, weighing in at 154 pounds. If yaaa smell.......
Plan of action. Get really really trim. Mainly to try and get all the fat off my face (get another photo up for that) but to also get a nice defined physique.
Probably going to consume at 2000kcal per day, heavy compound lifts in the gym, Keysi Fighting training (the bruise on my arm is from being hit repeatedly the other day), cricket, golf and the occasional run around the common.
