    We see alot of members offering advice but who are these people? I think the regular members on this board should provide a little information on themselves so we know who we are getting advice from and who we are talking to, also to learn more about the guys here. Ill go first.

    Age: 23
    Height: 187
    Weight: 85
    Body type: Somewhere between ecto and meso
    Qualifications in the industry: none

    Supplements: currently using: WPC, maltodextrin, creatine, jack3d (every now and then)

    Diet: Most of my protein comes in the way of food, tuna, chicken, steak, eggs and cottage cheese. I also normally get approx 5 and 2 serves of veg and fruit per day. Ive recently started eating alot more and noticed a big difference in muscle gain.

    Goals: Build muscle, reach 90kg (200 pounds) with about 10% bodyfat
    Achievements so far: Reduced body fat to approx 12% and added roughly 10kg muscle in 2 years

    Sport played: Football

    Re: Member Profiles

    Age: 33
    Height: 168
    Weight: 80 - ish
    Body type: elements of all 3 but meso more then the others
    Qualifications in the industry: cert 3/4 fitness...pt for 5 years...pt studio business owner for almost 2 years...research far out weights qual seminars are shit at best

    Supplements: currently using: i don't class protein powder and fish oil as supp's, they should be staples...so none, they're a waste of money

    Diet: 6 weet bix and shit load of milk for breaky...maybe an apple in btw...training somewhere in there...4 eggs/bacon, 2 pieces of toast, bowl of veg..chicken and veg...chops and veg...give or take...1 - 2 cheat meals a week (if i don't give in)

    Goals: all performance based so going into this off season i wanna get my strength back to where it was (150kg deadlift, 115kg bench press) but even more importantly have them carry over into football so turn my strength into explosiveness

    Achievements so far: well i've been at my goals before so i'll get to the strength bit before christmas hopefully but my achievements won't be seen until this time next year when footy finishes

    Sport played: Footy

    Re: Member Profiles

    hmm, not sure if i'm acknowledged as someone who should be giving advice on here cos i'm one of the skinny guys but anyway..

    Age: 20
    Height: 183 or 184cm
    Weight: 80kg
    Body type: ecto (was 47.5kg before starting gym(just before 17th bday, around the same height)

    Qualifications in the industry: none

    Supplements: choc whey and mesomorph sometimes if i need to squeeze a workout in and i feel tired

    Diet: i mainly eat tuna, steak, mince beef, chicken breast, bread, pasta, rice and fruit and vegetables
    getting around 250 carbs, 250 protein and 90 fats every day. sometimes carbs blows out to 300+ but in my situation it doesn't really matter

    Goals: lol bit embarassing to be honest..since i've started i've been aiming for the 'ben cousins' look. obviously won't look the same due to bone structure, genetics etc. but around that size i would be happy with..not sure about bf% because his was very low almost all the time but hopefully i stay dedicated enough to do it

    Sport played: have played cricket, footy, soccer, indoor soccer, basketball and did competitive swimming for a year. but currently only indoor soccer

    Much better system... Photos don't lie. This is me :thumbsu:

    [​IMG]

    In all seriousness, great concept. Here's me:

    Age: 23
    Height: 171~
    Weight: 73
    Bodyfat: never measured ~12% at a guess - abs visible
    Body: In between Meso and Endo
    Qualifications: None
    Supps: Obviously Whey, dextrose, BCAA's, Glutamine, Creatine, Multi, Fish oil as staples. Bulk Nutrients Pre work out here and there. Alcar when cutting and currently using Gaba to test out its sleep improving qualities I read so much about.

    Goals: 2x BW Deads and Squats x 6. Improve on weak points - calves. Cut for summer starts today - Have 9 weeks to get ripped. Be up on stage in the next 5 years.

    Sport: Football for all but this year.

    Diet: Chicken mostly, beef, broccoli, sweet potato, carrots, apples, rice, bread, olive oil etc keep it pretty simple.

    Achievements: DL 140kg x 4 (strength), I don't bench atm so DB chest 40kg x 8 (controlled for mass), Squats 110 x 6 (strength - bit disappointing atm)

    Added around 8kg's of muscle in 2 and a bit years of training on and off unfortunately (two extensive spells of 4-5 months really cost me)

    So you're actually doing this to be a bodybuilder? Can I ask why it appeals to you?

    Re: Member Profiles

    I love being competitive. Football stopped for me at the end of last year because my body couldn't cope with it anymore. With about 8 weeks int he season to go I was on pain killers for shin splints, groin troubles and foot problems just to train (We were finals bound so I kept playing).

    I now turn to the gym to find that competitiveness. At the moment I'm competing with myself every time I train, but in the future I hope to compete against others.

    I have a few mates competing, so I've been following how they go about it and I'm really interested in doing it.

    Re: Member Profiles

    Age: 32
    Height: 178cm
    Weight: 75kg
    Bodyfat: Approx 13-14% (dexa scanned a month ago at 15.52% @ 78kg)
    Qualifications: None (just a lot of reading)
    Sports: None
    Supps:
    * Whey - Purely used to "correct" macros at end of day if my protein from food is lacking
    * Creatine
    * Multi + fish oil
    * BCAA - only as i'm doing fasted training/leangains
    * Bulk Nut PWO NT - workout in the morning and i'm not a morning person

    Current Diet: Keto whilst cutting
    Bulking Diet: Whatever foods that hit my macros, when i was bulking earlier this year it was around 200g pro, 80g fat, 400g carb.

    Past: Was 92+kg, 30%+ body fat, unfit and hadn't trained in years, so spent the last 18 months getting back into shape. Dropped 23kg, bulked up 8-9ish kg, now cutting back again for summer.

    Short term goal: To get to 8% bf or as close to it by christmas
    Long term goal: 78kg @ 8%

    Strategy: Cut til christmas, and then spend most of next year slow bulking and gaining as much mass/strength as possible.

    Training: 4 day split with 1-2 days cardio

    Current PB's:
    * 5k run in 21:40ish.
    * DB Bench: 42.5 x 5
    * Squat: 105 x 5
    * Dead lift: 152.5 x 5
    * Standing Press: 60 x 5

    Squat is a little low as i only introduced it 3 months ago. Really need to get it up to around 125x5 to get in line with my other lifts. I suspect part of it is form.

    Goals:
    * 1 x bw Press (currently 0.9x)
    * 1.5 x bw Bench (currently around 1.3x)
    * 2 x bw Squat (currently 1.6x)
    * 2.5 x bw Dead lift (currently 2.3x)
    (Current numbers are using 1rm calc)

    * 5km run in under 20mins

    I don't train for any sports or anything. Just for the fun of it. Love the challenge of pushing myself to and past limits.

    If he wasn't natural there, he wasn't long into the gear.

    His major muscle development came after this pic was taken.

    Re: Member Profiles

    Here's a mini transformation for you lot that like pics. The July 30 pics are after my 4 month lay off and the Sep 16 are after 10 odd weeks of training. Have trimmed up slightly since then. Hopefully next set of pics will be in much better shape for my summer holidays.

    First time I've ever posted pics on the intrawebz so be kind to my pasty white body!

    I've linked the album pages instead of filling up your IPhone screens with pics.

    Also hit a new PB for deads today. Introduced straps a month ago now and am going through the weights (so much easier when the bar isn't slipping through your fingers). Did 150 x 3 which is 2xBW so my goal above won't last too long. Will have to re-assess.

    Also noticed I was way out with height. First time I've measured in a long time today and I'm about 167-168 cm's. After seeing the BF% pics I'd most likely class myself just outside 12% and go with 13%.

    Ok if others are putting some up, may as well put money where my mouth is lol.

    Took this today, i'm about 3-4kg away from my goal which i'll hopefully get to in 6-8 weeks. Sitting at 13-14% body fat, compared to 30%+ before i started training.

    Vascularity over the chest/deltoids would indicate to me thats more like 10% max. 13-14 is very generous.. Just my opinion though..

    That's what I was thinking. Difficult photo to gauge though. His stomach clearly holding something, however it could be water.

    Always been a very subjective topic.

    Pretty big unit, Whomb.

    Re. Ben, looking good mate, would love to see the growth you would be able to achieve if football and to a lesser extent cycling weren't holding you back. What level are you playing at these days?

    Re: Member Profiles

    I guess it's time for me to do this, I'm shy though hah.

    Age: 21
    Height: 180cm
    Weight: ~80kgs
    Bodyfat: ~16% by the looks of things
    Body type: Traits of all three but mainly ectomorph - I'm what you'd call a 'skinny-fat kid' - have never had troubles putting on belly fat and love handles. I wouldn't say I'm a hard gainer - not like the hard gainers I train with but I'm certainly not as gifted as a true mesomorph.
    Qualifications: None. I have stolen my sisters text books though - she's a sports scientist. :D
    Sports: Currently nothing. Have history in footy and swimming mainly - rep level for both. Others are Basketball, Volleyball and beach volleyball.
    Supplements: Whey, Waxy Maize, Glutamine, flaxseed oil and multi. I have a mass gainer that I'm taking too - won't bother getting another after I've finished though.
    Diet: Currently bulking (35:55:10), will start a keto in 4 weeks time from Monday.
    Past: In the past I've just been skinnier and weaker.

    Goals: Squat 1.5 x BW for 12 reps, Dead 2 x BW for 6 and Bench 1.5x BW for 8. Also want to hit 90 kgs and cut down to 85kgs with 5-10% bodyfat.

    Training: 4-5 days/week resistance training. No cardio.

    Not sure if I should put any of my current lifts up, people judge that shit haha.

    Anyway, here's a pic:
