Jeff from RealJock here. At long last, we've launched the Workout Photos tracking section of the workouts. This new system allows you to upload before, during, and after body photos to your profile as you do one of RealJock.com's 12-week workout programs. When you add your first photo, you'll be automatically added to the searchable list of other RealJock.com members participating in the program.
You can read all about it here:Before and After Pics Overview
Once you add your photos, they'll go into our review queue. After we've approved them, they'll go live in a new section of your profile called "My RealJock Workout Photos". In addition, you'll be added to a list of participants that can be found as a link on every page of the workouts. We've finished adding all of this to the Muscle-Building 12-Week Workout; it will go live on the Strong and Lean 12-Week Workout tomorrow.
We really hope some of you participate in this program! We would love to see some of the body transformations in action.
Also, on an unrelated note, we're working on an overview of alternative exercises you can do if your gym does not have specific equipment such as the Gravitron machine, tubes, or cable machines. We should have that live in a week. As a general rule, though, if you come across an exercise you don't have the equipment to do, try to find an exercise that is closely related and mimics the movement of the exercise. For example, for tube rows, the best alternative would be cable rows, with a second best alternative being dumbbell rows. For Gravitron wide-grip pull-ups, your best alternative would be to do wide-grip pull-ups on a Smith machine bar set at head height with your legs slightly bent and feet lightly supporting you on the ground, or standard pull-ups as a second alternative. More on that next week!
