    A big part of that is genetic...

    Next part is getting your mind right and knowing that you give up tons of stuff (food) that tastes good.

    Next part, I think this is important, is you may have to give up friends too...When I decided to get healthy, I found that many of my friends weren't. It was too hard being around them, hanging with them and they ate whatever, smoked, drank, and didn't really care about their bodies. If you want to look like that, you are going to probably lose friends, but the ones you pick up will make up for it...

    Get educated. Trial and error is a an expensive bitch that I think all of us have taken. You just have to go through things to find out what works for you and what doesn't...Certain supplements, trainers, DVDS, etc...It can add up, and some may work for others, but not you.

    Reality...I think everyone should go to their doctor or nutritionist before taking on a trek like this...You can find out what you are deficient in, and if it is even possible for you to look like this. I got down to about 2% bodyfat once, and my doc went crazy screaming at me...I didn't know that was unhealthy (I only weighed about 140) not good if you are 5'8". It looked good, but it didn't feel good.

    I guess once you get the proper tools in place, and figure that you have to be dedicated and know what your reality is, that may be possible...good luck.

    Oh, put that picture on the fridge, good luck!

    You make a plan for your body type and set a goal for what you want to look like, then you work your fat ass off and replace it with a hot muscular ass over the course of a very long and dedicated time.

    How do you determine your body type? Oh, and don't call me fat ass.

    Where in there did I write "you are a fat ass" I was referring to myself actually and where I started in my training routine, but only you can interpret what you read for yourself. I didn't just wake up one morning looking like I do.. I have been working at it consistently for over two years now.

    Some people are naturally skinny and can't gain weight, others are thicker built, so there is a start.

    It's not so much about a set certain amount of time. . . It's a lifestyle change. It can't be a few months or a few years type of thing, it needs to be permanent.

    It takes a long time. It takes a lot of dedication. It takes a lot of sacrifice.

    Its the way nature intended us to be. Switch to an all natural lifestyle and you will see a gradual transformation. Eating crap, watching tv/video games , sitting at a desk all day is not natural.

    The best way to achieve a body like that is to sit in a chair in front of a computer and go to websites for years asking how.

    I believe that even genetics can be mostly overcome if you work hard.

    Have a balanced and stringent workout routine- lift heavy and often.
    Eat lots and lots of protein and leafy greens.
    Eliminate junk food, sugars and carbs.
    Don't sit around all day.
    Get plenty of cardio.

    And don't be a slacker like me--- stick with it religiously! It takes long term dedication.

    I keep getting half way there and then dropping the ball on it when life gets in the way.

    But just working out and eating healthy makes me look and feel a lot younger and I see major results within weeks, and start getting noticed by others within months.

    When you eat right and exercise properly, a physiological change takes place and your body starts to respond in ways that are hard to explain. At least mine does.

    My life is getting back in order again and I am about to come out of hibernation. Perhaps this is the year I will achieve the physique I want.... icon_smile.gif

    It is very hard for someone like me who is naturally LAZY to stick with it like many of the jocks on here who have always been active.

    I would also add:

    Understand that achieving the body of your dreams is not going to be the key to your happiness that you think it will be - you should definitely pursue your fitness goals but you should also work on the insides as well as the outsides. Trust me when I say there are tons of model gorgeous men who are still incredibly insecure and unhappy.

    according to that, that's what I am. hm.

    my body's foundation was lain due to years of swimming and rowing.

    now my body is what it is due to sedentary and intellectual pursuits ... and pizza.

    I've already tried that. It doesn't work.

    Then get off your royal duff and do some work! Keep doing what you have been doing and you will keep getting what you have been getting.... if nothing changes, nothing changes.
