Just started in my quest to put on a bit of muscle and tone. Always been fit, but more of a runner/triathlete build, as I’m getting older I am now joining the ranks of those of you adding bulk.
Here are some shots of me. Aged 45, 182cm (6ft, 0in), 80kg (176 lb). (BTW, I’m a photographer by trade. All self-portraits).
Not what I was expecting either. 😆
Wondering what the motivation for posting them was. Are you looking for input on your physique, trying to drum up some business or just posting pics?
You’ve traumatised km. He’ll never go into another phone booth in his life. 😆
Hi, Dr J,
Not planning on bulking up to a huge extent, but now that I’m getting a (little) more serious, I’m enjoying seeing some definition in my body. For years I was described as “skinny”. So, from a base of around 73-74 kg 15 months ago I’m aiming to put on a bit more bulk and get some fat off.
I’m training only 3 days a week, using the “Men’s Health Book of Muscle” as some sort of guide. A PT mate of mine (huge bugger, but very fit) advised me that it is aimed more at the beginners. I am one of those, and when I told him I wasn’t seeing enough gains for my liking, he said
“You’re a pussy Steve. Lift heavier weights”, lol.
So, still following the same program (which seems to target upper body, lower, upper, on various days for three weeks before changing), but heeding his advice, I have seen more gains, and strength has increased. I’m eating reasonably sensibly, having a protein (not WP) shake with bananas, 2 raw eggs, fruit, honey, low-fat milk, most mornings, 200g of tuna for lunch, plus some chicken/beef stirfry in evenings.
To say it is all less-than-scientific is stating the bleeding obvious, but I’ll get there with the help and encouragement of others, ans sites like this.
The images are a little provocative, I know, but that’s just the arty side of me.
