    Hey all! I wanted to share my progress with you that I've made over the past couple of years. I really decided to transform my life for the better and have never been happier. I've gotten these results (even though I know they don't seem major to most) without picking up a weight or ever visiting a gym. I really wanted to improve more, but for about all 2011 I was homeless so it became hard to eat properly.

    Anyway, the "present" picture isn't entirely accurate as it was posted about two months ago. Since then I've gotten dumbells and a bar and have gained more mass/muscle (specifically on my biceps and triceps as of now). Here's to some more improvement in the future!! icon_smile.gif

    Take care,

    Josh

    I know you're younger than me, but you're wisdom and smart approaches to life exceed your age... there should be scholarships for young guys like you. You're one of my favorite posters on here, and you illuminate the forums when most others are too busy snuffing out wicks.
    I appreciate you buddy, and good job on Making Your'Self! icon_wink.gif
    Looking good! icon_cool.gif

    You're doing great, Josh! BW exercises are terrific, and the outdoos provides a great gym!

    Keep doing it, your hotness quotient is going up, up and up!

    That's really impressive... Take advantage of more exercises you can do at home, and then maybe look online for different exercises with instruction.

    You will be fine! icon_smile.gif

    This is inspirational and probably the best thing I've read on RJ for a long time now. This is the reason I joined the site in the first place. Congrats and keep it up Josh! ^_^
