    I like to think that it happens to the best of us - those moments where we hit that workout wall. Where we're sitting at our computers, debating on whether it's worth expending the energy to run to the gym and get in a quick workout. Because why should we do that when there's other work to be done? Or music to listen to? Or guys to stalk on Realjock? Goodness knows I haven't stalked enough guys this week, so maybe I should skip my workout for today. You know, to focus on the important things in life. Amirite?

    And that's when my new (and slightly creepy) habit of watching body transformation videos comes to the rescue. Thanks to Youtube and guys with a penchant for death metal (or that one techno song, the one that creeps into every other video online), I can watch a guy build muscle or lose 100 lbs in 5 minutes or less. It's mesmerizing, slightly creepy, and incredibly inspirational - because these are, for the most part, real people and real transformations. And if they can do it, why can't I? That is, if I postpone my stalking.

    So after wading through so many videos, I wanted to share the inspiration and see if anyone had else indulged in this oddly fascinating search for motivation. Do you have a body transformation video of yourself ? Of a friend? Maybe a stranger, who - despite their choice of background music - has inspired you to get off your tuchus with their amazing gains or ridiculous weight loss? If you do, post them below!

    I'll start:

    Busted! Two of my favorites, extreme examples which I find, since I'm neither young nor ectomorphic, both motivating and discouraging:

    [That's the EXACT techno song I'm talking about. Also, I completely forgot what socks were when his March 2006 pictures came up.]

    [Nice! That's probably one of the better videos I've seen.]

    This one isn't as extreme, but it's interesting to see the day-to-day progression:

    Don't forget "Let the body hit the floor" by Drowning Pool - that's like in every third one.
