I'm 17 and I worked out for a little over a year. I was born naturally big. I'm around 6'3" and weigh about 265 lbs.

My bench press isn't all that impressive, but my legs is where my pride's at. When I do my squats, I only do "Ass to the Grass." Meaning I go all the way down and explode up. None of that "parallel to the ground" stuff.

Edit: New maxes :D
Note: These are 1RM
Bench: Old - 275 lbs, New - 315 lbs
Squat: Old - 455 lbs, New - 515 lbs
Deadlift: Old - 500 lbs, New - 595 lbs
Legpress: Old - 1080 lbs, New - 1185 lbs

Note:These are 10 reps
Bench: 205 lbs
Squat: 355 lbs
Deadlift: 405 lbs
Legpress: 810 lbs

This is me right now, you might have to tilt your head to see a better view. I have quite a bit of fat so the muscles don't really stand out, but they are quite hard, and dense. I'm trying to cut my weight down to 240-250 lbs.

Umm, I'm not too sure what you're trying to say? Being cut means that you've got muscle and very little fat. It's a type a type of body that one who is strong may try to achieve. How do they get strong? By lifting weights..Or possibly doing a huge load of physical activities / sports, and probably also lifting weights. Those who are cut typically aren't stronger than those that lift a lot of weights commonly and don't worry about getting toned, because cut people have to battle between bulking and leaning up again..if you're not worrying about getting cut, then you can just continue lifting without worrying about so much cardio / burning fat and gain more strength.


Yeah.. Dunno what he was talking about. Looks like he deleted his foolish comment. His abs pictures are also on Tumblr, so.. Sigh. Why do people with fake ab pictures come to Crunchyroll?


My friends are always showing off their abs, and I'm all, "You don't punch people in the face with your abs." I don't really understand the purpose of having a six-pack.


Having a six pack does show that you're taking care of yourself by being fit and eating properly. It also shows that you probably have a strong core. It does have its pros, but I'm not going to get into all of that.. but still. Fake ab pictures.. I really don't understand and cannot come to respect people who use someone else's ab pictures and claim it as their own. If their internet self-esteem is that bad, I don't know what they're like in real life.

Why can't these men be like you, who just likes to upload creative pictures? (It's pretty cool, seriously!)

Damn man, only a little over a year of working out and you're already able to lift so much weight? That's pretty impressive. I'm also 6'3", but I'd be pretty puny compared to you..you blow my maxes out of the water.

Having abs can also mean that you starve yourself. Male models, man.

Do big forearms and hairy palms = working out? Who needs a shake weight when I was born with one?

Bad joke

Anyway before I got sick I was able to lift most transmissions in and out of a car including torque converter <automatic transmission> most of us all know manual transmissions don't really weigh anything unless they are the old cast iron ones from the old days.

Enough of the cool story but at one point when I was healthy I could lift around 240 lbs with ease. That was daily routine working at my grandfathers automotive shop.

You have to gyrate the thing like you are servicing C-3PO.
I hate it!

But hahahha! Good joke.

Or it means you're on a good diet and you work out a lot. I have a six pack and I certainly don't starve myself lol, especially since I weigh 235.

but, like you say, I do know some guys who simply starve themselves to get a "six pack".. plus lots of skin n' bones for sure. I don't understand those people. It doesn't even look right and it doesn't look appealing at all.
