    Not sure this is the place for me. Don't quite look like a "Men's Health" model yet and have a little ways to go.

    But I thought maybe I could find some guys in the same spot I am-looking to find a workout buddy or two to help whip each other into shape and attain that beach-ready body.

    So far though it appears that most of the guys on here already have "the look" and don't take too kindly to those of us who haven't quite reached our goals.

    Be cool to hear from anyone else on here who feels the same.

    If not, time to look in a different direction I guess.

    Welcome aboard!

    I'm not a Men's Health model either, unless it's a before shot.

    This is the place for you, don't be discouraged. There are a lot of very hot inshape guys here but look at them as an inspiration. I would suggest that you finish your profile, put in your sizes (don't be ashamed, you're half way there just by being here), you'll get more of the guys to take you serious if you're up front and honest. Not all of us are in our 20s or 30s and specimens used for A & F, but many of us have worked hard to get to where we are and you should too.

    There's a ton of great info here and much of it comes from those hot inshape guys (another advantage of staying).

    So welcome, you're at the right place and you're in the right frame of mind, now eat right, workout hard and keep everyone apprised of your results, you can do it! Good luck.

    Be sure to click on "TOPICS" at the top of the page. There is lots of information on RJ.

    And here is a favorite site of mine. If you look around on it, you will find lots of food and nutritional information.

    Welcome. This is a great site. It is for anyone who is interested in bettering their physical condition. It just looks like we are there. But I am a great example of here, trying to get there and probably will never quite make it. I would love 6-pack abs, but when you start with a beer keg, it is a long trip. But there are a lot of great traveling companions for company along the way. Guys who really know what it takes and are willing to share experiences and give a lot of support.

    Stick around a while and you will become addicted to Real Jock. I have.

    Great attitude, joedocker. Seeing all of this eye candy is very motivational for me. I personally think, though, that the next boot camp in Mazatlan (or was it Acapulco) should feature guys who actually need it (no offense to Chizzad and crew). icon_smile.gif

    flabfighter, lookit me! icon_razz.gif

    <-

    Far from a hunk. I'm a TOTAL beginner. You learn a lot by just reading the topics and articles here (I mostly just read and don't post much on the fitness forums since I have nothing to contribute heh icon_razz.gif).

    And yeah, lots of guys here are still on their way too.

    I don't look like an MH model and have a long way to go. Try the Beginner workout on the workouts page.
