I started working out in May 2007 so it has been about 7 months straight. I'm a hard gainer so it takes a lot of work and dedication for me to grow a little bit of muscle.

Here are two pics I snapped while in the gym for 2 weeks. The other pics were taken today (not my rooms...both of them)

I still have a ton of work to do but what do you expect after only 7 months right? I can't wait to see what I look like once the summer gets here...

Here is my workout schedule.

Day 1:
Squats 3x5
Bench Press 5x5
Incline Dumbell Press 3x8
Dips 3 sets until failure
Tricep Pulldown Machine Using Rope 3x8
Tricep Pulldown Machine using Metal Triangle 3x8

Day 2:
Deadlifts 5x5
Rows 3x8
Lat pulldown 3x8
Pullups 3 sets until failure
Hammer Curls 3x8
Barbell Cursl 3x8

Day 3: OFF

Day 4:
Squats 3x8
Press using olympic bar 5x5
Shrugs 3x8
Pullups 3 sets until failure

Day 5: OFF

Repeat cycle





TODAY:

I try to increase weight every time that I'm at the gym. I usually try to add on those little tiny 2.5 pound plates. They add up quickly after a month or two.

Here are my current numbers on the big lifts:

Bench Press 200lbs
Deadlifts (i pulled 200 the other day but i go lighter so i don't hurt my back)
Squats 185lbs

I weight about 155 so I'm happy to be lifting more than my weight.

The best thing you can do is bring a notebook with you to the gym. Just write down every set and weight that you are moving. This gives you motivation because when you look back 2 months you notice how much stronger you have become.

I try to eat clean but the bulk of my diet consists of things that have lots of protein. Here is a list of foods that are considered "clean"....

The key is to eat lots of meals throughout the day....instead of having that traditional "breakfast, lunch, dinner" schedule. I try to shoot for 8 meals a day but when I say meal it doesn't mean a full plate of food. A meal can be a protein drink or even 10 almonds.

90% of what you look like is contributed to food, not lack of exercise. "you are what you eat"

eggs.
egg whites.
oatmeal, real shit. NOT f'n quaker.
yogurt, low sugar, low fat or just plain eww.
fruits.
veggies - mixed frozen are great and easy, any and everything else is good too.
chicken.
tuna.
lean red meat.
turkey.
whole wheat wraps.
whole wheat toast.
natural peanut butter.
unsalted mixed nuts.
almonds are super clean.
rice and if you have time brown is a little higher in protein.
wild rice.
cottage cheese,
ricotta cheese.
whole wheat pasta with tomato based sauce.
selection of reasonably healthy pre-made microwaveable meals (for when you are a little lazy)
salmon.
cod.
shrimp but go easy due to cholesterol.
whole wheat cheerios.
bacon

Yup but he already had the muscle there except that it was being covered by extra fat. When you body build it is recommended that you first do a clean "bulk" which means you eat more than your body can burn off. You keep going to the gym and then you cut by lowering your food consumption. You can also do cardio and such.

I'll be doing this around April to get ready for summer.

Hmm...sounds like a plan. Never thought of that nor heard of that. I think I'll try and give it a go starting in a couple a month or so when school isn't being so stressful. As I stated earlier in the thread, my main problem is consistency. Unfortunately that's a big deal so that's also somehting I need to work on. My trainer recommended pretty much the same things you listed in your diet, except with the allowance of a few other things. I try my best.

To be honest though, my performance is unsatisfacory in my eyes. I've been working out forever, so I've got the muscle. I just lack the tone. In fact, the before pictures that you posted are somewhat similar. A touch chubbier, but more or less the same thing. I've been dying to lose the extra layer.
