    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. :yy:

    Stats:
    Height: 6' 1"
    Weight: 89kg
    Bodyfat: 25.6%
    BMI: 25
    Body fat mass: 21.8kg

    My transformations blog is below.

    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:
    Height- 178cm
    Weight- 61.1kg
    Age- 20
    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:

    Weight: 135lbs

    Bust: 32.5in
    Upper Arms: L=11.5in R=11.5in
    Waist: 27in
    Hips: 34in
    Seat: 38.5in
    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

    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

    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..)

    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.

    Game on.
