If it wasn't for the fact that I'm not willing to share my weight with the internet, I'd do this :/

My only concern about this is how visible the progress made with 8 weeks of training will be.
next question.... do the pictures have to be nude?

Im jk.

Seriously though, are there any rules besides the ones posted above?

How many people will you choose?

How many people will we have to assist us with questions and such?

I have plenty of athletic experience, 4 years of club soccer, 2 years of american football, and 1 year of wrestling.

height: 72"

goal- get up to 200. gain muscle mass and lose fat.

I have football training starting in june, ill see if i can get something together for may.

i might have a problem getting the pictures up, becuase a) my camera sucks, and b) ill probably forget halfway through to post one a week.
futball season and football season.
Height: 6'2ish
Weight: 176
Goal:185 (eventually). but in 2 months I doubt that result is really all that possible. Higher vertical as well.

I do dips, chin ups, L seats, push ups, and curls every other day sometimes with two inbetween if I still feel sore or tired. And I play basketball about twice a week. Aslo I do legs every other day. There's a lot of high goals considering how small this time period is. But hey more power to everyone.

137 lbs

Training: I do heavy cardio and calisthenics once a week + lift heavy crap at my job all the time
Goal: To win this challenge. I'm just going for developing a very-toned and good-looking physique. I've pulled it off in the past so doing it in 8 weeks should prove interesting and challenging .

I swallow it whole, like a man.
im totally in. this could be the motivation i need haha.

current status:

5'10" or 5'11"
169.5 lbs.
currently lifting weights and doing very minimal cardio with my football team (american) every monday, wednsday, and friday.

new regimen

continue the same lifting schedule, but add in more running. if anyone can offer some tips for what kind of running or how much, that would be a huge help.

im only fifteen and i have a bit of fat. not a whole lot by anyones standards, but enough that its bugged me my whole life. so my goal is to burn off the fat while continuing to build muscle, and go through one month of spring football. yes, i know that this will be extremely difficult to pull off, so again, any advice/tips/pep talks regarding diets, routines, and anything else are more than welcome and greatly appreciated.
height: 5' 8"

weight: 132 lbs (just got on the scale)

current training: i walk almost 2 miles back from school 5 days a week if that's anything. I don't drink soda anymore if that counts as well

Goal:gain 10 or 15 or possible even 20 lbs and become more toned. possibly a 6 pack?

Method: Add some daily jogging (starting around a half mile and going up as my legs get a bit stronger), dunbell arm workouts (curls for the bicepts and forearms as well as an exercise for that muscle on the outside part of the shoulder the tri... somethings), and some pushups thrown in for good measure. I already drink over 1.5 L of water a day but i also plan to clean up my eating habits a bit.

anything i should change about this method? i hope this is just the motivation i need to keep this up.

I think we should have a few different categories for the challenge. For example:
1) Best visual transformation (judged by users)
2) Best strength gains in iron terms
3) Best strength gains in bodyweight terms (pushups, chins etc.)
4) Most weight gain/loss

You could enter in any/all of the categories and for the strength one could have your own personal goal (e.g. someone might wanna boost their pushup numbers from 30 to 80 whilst someone else wants to boost the chinup numbers from 15 to 25).


btw i'm in. You put the challenge forth kadinh, and i'm warning you i did just write up a new A-B split that's gonna kick your ass

Height: 174ish cm
Weight: 64kg
Current training:
A-B split:
Calves (donkey raises, calf raises)
Lower back (heavy deadlifts)
Lats/upper back (chins, pullups, rows)
Shoulders (muscle cleans, push-presses, jerks, snatches)

Quads/hams (squats, lunges, ham curls)
Pecs (bench press, squeeze press)
Tris (dips, pushdowns)
Bis (chins, curls [yes i know i actually included curls but i haven't done them in half a year so cut me some slack eh])

Deads: 3,3,2,2,1,1,1
Bench: 5x5 Squeeze press: 6x4
Dips: 5x5 Pushdowns: 3x8
Lats: weighted chins 5x5, bodyweight done ghetto style
Squats: either 1x20 or 6,6,5,5,5,4,4,4,3,3 (i did this today, needless to say my legs f*cking hurt now)
Lunges: with dumbbells 5x10, with barbell done quick 30x1, 20x1(like when you see the olympic lifters train)
Calves: 8x5
Shoulders: this might be a bit confusing to explain but here goes: muscle clean up, 3x1 military press with strict form. Repeat once more. Then up the weight, muscle clean up, 3x1 pushpress, repeat once more. Then up weight, clean up, 3x1 jerk, repeat once more.

- Gain 4-5kg fairly lean
- flag for a crisp 3 seconds
- freestanding handstand
- Get iron numbers up (haven't tested maxes in a while but i know i should be lifting bigger, especially in squats and deads)

I'll post this in the bodybuilding/nutrition thread as well to discuss
