Shit, I'd kill for your BEFORE pic mate (mainly coz I can't tan).
Jokes aside, that's a great transformation -and in a pretty good time too! 1 year half-assed + 2 years serious is better than 5-6 years half-assed... which is how most people do it IF they even stick with it after 6 months!!

Great work mate. If 'sex appeal' was ever an objective, consider it reached.

And you are a funny bear! My before pic is far to skinny for you!

The sun is your enemy. I'm the black guy in the beach slathering on SPF 70 or higher. Trust me. But yeah, I do come with the built-in tan.

And thanks, I know I have come a ways and, yet, still see myself as skinny, which keeps me motivated to hit it hard.

Snowy here this am, so schools were late and people were being idiotic.

Nothing too special about today's workout. Forearm pain in minimal (gave up DB curls because of it). I actually had been performing the HS Preacher Curl without gripping the handles-- open hand and all. Helps a lot.

Weekends are always off days.

I have been going hard since the first week of November (10 weeks total) and am thinking of possibly deloading next week (instead of taking a week off). Then, a little voice in my head says to keep pushing. UGH. Decisions, decisions.

Nice workout brother..I used to get forearm pains too. I used to get either tiger balm or just lotion and find the tender area on my forearm and massage it like crazy. Sometimes it can be a chronic injury that was never paid any attention to which caused there to be some scar tissue build up, and needs to be released.

Thanks, dmaipa! Appreciate the info. I have been using reverse curls, massaging it and doing forearm stretches everyday at work and after my workouts. I don't want to take anti-inflammatories (until absolutely necessary) because they cause me other issues.

Scanning logs here and trying to keep my jaw off the floor with the amount of heavy a$$ stuff being moved.

Inspiring and intimidating to say the least (but both in good ways).

Thanks, Carl.

Yeah, I am really enjoying the overall vibe here. Good stuff.

Forearm is feeling okay as I type this. Will do some more stretches while working this afternoon.
