I'd like to enter.
Looking for some more motivation other then going along by myself, i saw the summer thread a few months ago and was to late to apply, stroke up luck i browsed this forum the other day and another one is starting just in time!
My main goal is to lose weight, and hopefully i will gain a little muscle/improve fitness along the way. Im thinking of going back to my martial arts club again if im not working.
The program i will be following is primarily a free weights program x3 a week, mixed in with a little kettlebell tabata, with x1 cardio day.
I will be also focusing on what i eat as i had lost a stone then put 10pounds back on that last couple of months.
weight: 15.10 stone
i can;t remember my personal best and would differ as i took a long break. These reps are from my program so may differ from the usual 5x5.
Deadlift 12reps 70kg
squat 8reps 80kg
pull ups x3
bench press 12reps 60kg
Bent over row 10reps 60kg
Arnold press 10reps 18kg Dumbbell's
please let me know if this proof photo is OK.
I wont be going to the gym, i'll be using free weights i have acquired at home, mixed with a kettlebell and cycling. Whats been putting me off at the moment is the rain and darkness, but this can be overcome.
Final note i guess i'll be aiming for around 1800cals a day, but to be honest as long as i eat clean i should see a difference.
If i have forgotten some info please let me know and i'll add it thanks.
Good luck to you all!

Stalked this competition since it started so finally going to have a go! New username though as I'd be mortified if someone I knew ever found this.. Hoping to generally lose weight, and just get fit again. Will be doing a mixture of cardio with some weights maybe once or twice a week. In particular used to enjoy going out for runs of 10 miles or so, and would like to be able to do that again. Would also like to be able to cycle a lot faster. Obviously there's a limit to what will happen in twelve weeks, but I've done next to nothing for around the past year so should hopefully be able to make some reasonably quick improvements in the running and cycling! And obviously will try to eat healthily as well. Starting at 5'6/7 and 78.5kg, and looking to get beneath 70kg.Spoiler:Show

Just remember to do lots of compound movements such as squats, deadlifts etc at high weight and low reps. Hope it goes well
Good luck to you too mate

Hi, I would like to join in too if that's ok!
I'm hoping to slim down as of Tuesday anyway so this has come just at the right time for me.
Currently weight 13 stone 4 pounds and am 5 foot 7 inches.. yikes.
Pictures are of front, side and (the incredibly difficult to capture!) back. Oh, and good ol' Google with the date
I really want to get fitter because as you can see, i'm not slim for a start :P And mainly because I'm starting to think to myself, if I don't start now.. I never will!
I've got my gym membership sorted and i'm snooping around for healthy recipes as we speak.
Anyway, wish me luck and good luck to everyone else!

Ok here goes
Weight: Will edit later
I'm hoping to use this as a spring board for a year long project as the first few months will probably involve me trying to find a routine that works for me.
As I'm not a 100% sure on what I'm doing I think I will start with this routine
Day One: Chest and biceps
Bench Press (3x8)
Arm Curls (3x8)
Day Two: Legs, Triceps and Abs
Leg press (3x8)
Belgian Squats (3x8)
Day Three: Shoulders and Back
Shoulder press (3x8)
Dead lifts (3x8)
Bent over row (3x8)
Day Four: Chest, Bicep and Abs
Incline Bench Press (3x8)
Dumbbell Curl (3x8)
Day Five: Rest
Day Six: 2 mile run- because a small child could out run me at the moment
Day Seven: Rest
I haven't added weight yet as I don't know what I can lift just yet but will add that soon. Also looking to switch things up by changing exercise ever 4-6 weeks
As for results, I'm looking for a athletic look rather than a body-builders although I think it may take me closer to a year to achieve hence the year projectLast edited by Shomberlon; 04-01-2013 at 21:44.

Hey guys! New profile created....Bring it!!
I want to change for the better, I want to become healthy and increase my fitness. I feel all I constantly think about is my weight and my body and I want this to change. I want to stop being so self conscious and gain more confidence. Simples eh?
I took my weight, measurements and these photos this morning. I had a ‘practice day’ yesterday of the 30 day shred, it was tough. Officially started it today, tough but managed to push through No pain, no gain.
I’m 18, 5ft 2 and weigh 9 stone 12. My highest weight was just below 11 stone, hoping to get below 9 stone but don’t mind if I lose inches more than pounds right now.
BMI – 25.24 Bust – 34.5 Waist – 29 Hips – 37 Thighs – 20.5
Good luck everyone!
P.S. Can't believe I'm actually doing this.

Your bf doesn't look that high, if anything I thought it would have been closer to 20%!
By the way, is the male transformation in the OP your brother's?!
