*sad abs noises

*sad six pack still in the cooler noises

*sad six-pack’s worth sitting inside a keg ramblings


InsertCoinForCredit

You get abs like that, you're not allowed to make sad noises. Lots of folks are mad jealous over here, NGL.

This is literally “he will never have gf” meme


selfdomesticatedape

Actually I had a gf in the left pic, now I don't just a lot of guy friends


RdiatStorm

That's the "curse" of being ripped, you would think that girls would like it but in the end it's just the bois.


Potato_Pizza_Cat

I lost several girlfriends when I got in better shape in high school because literally all I talked about was my workout program.


eventualist

We get it, you press


Potato_Pizza_Cat

No, no, haven’t you been listening?!? Pressing is done on Tuesday so this was really more of a truncated cardio and leg heavy day, plus my straps just ripped and I think I’m needing new knee sleeves so I’m trying to get a few more hours at the shop and also it sounds like I might be going to the conditioning camp over the summer and blah blah blah blah

LavenderDay3544

Find a girl who also works out a lot. I see a lot of couples at the gym together even ones that aren't married.


Potato_Pizza_Cat

I could but my wife would be mad. Seriously though, our two major day to day hobbies are exercising and talking shit to bad tv.


partizan92

Just listen to interesting podcasts while working out and you'll have plenty of stuff to talk about.


RunRenee

You’d love my house. My husband is a competitive body builder and when it’s show season it’s ALL that gets talked about, workouts, diet/nutrition, body fat %, weight, skin folds, measurements, macro/micro nutrients, tanning, the list is endless. Honestly it takes a lot to be in a relationship with someone that is heavily into fitness. I workout, but not to his degree.


Crumblypudding

Girl here. I like it!


LettuceBenis

She got jealous of your muscles, she will come back just as ripped. Prepare yourself for your true battle


Crumblypudding

Death by snoo snoo.


Princes_Slayer

As a woman I’m so jealous of those tumbling locks. You look fantastic, congrats


RunRenee

His hair is a L’Oréal commercial.


Ok-Meat-6476

That is incredible! But let’s be real, everyone. That hair is the real show-stopper here! My guy out here killin’ it!


selfdomesticatedape

Had to fight for it! Worth it!

I think you just made Fabio jealous with those locks and that body!

Indeed. Good fight! What gorgeous hair!

thumpetto007

Yeah, holy shit. Easily the hottest guy I've seen on reddit. There are so many elements that come together (color of skin playing off the bright traditional pants, abs, head position, confidence) and wheeeew that hair is beaaaaaaautiful, flowy and magnificent. Hot hot hot


FatStephen

I mean, but you totally didn't mention that chest. I would totally melt putting my head against that. Yes plz!


selfdomesticatedape

Fatstephen i see you


doyalikedags1

You transformed from Maui (Moana) to Aquaman! Incredible!!!


selfdomesticatedape

noro_gre

For real, your photographing skills improved along with your looks. You went from bland, low saturation, poor white balance and low effort, straight to high contrast, vibrant colors, good background, good production


selfdomesticatedape

Hehehe


Chickenwang88

This is so inspiring, thank you for sharing.


selfdomesticatedape

Thank you for your kind words

cdhernandez

Talk to me my brotha, how did you do it? I need this so bad as I was in the same situation but haven’t seemed to loose anything. Good job to ya, you’re an inspiration.


selfdomesticatedape

Calorie deficit homie!


wasted-degrees

Calorie deficit for the weight loss maybe, but that muscle definition is insane. I’m gonna need some workouts from you bro. Teach me your ways.


selfdomesticatedape

2 day split, pull ,push, stick to it, don't change it, track the progress that's it!


StTimmerIV

I have no idea what this means. Care to elaborate a bit plz?


selfdomesticatedape

Pull: exercises where you pull weight towards your body (back, biceps) (I do legs too) Push: weights away from your body (chest, tricep, shoulder) Any 2 exercises of your choice for each muscle group, 6 exercises per day, 5-6 days/week.just stick to one plan, track your reps n weights. Lifting weights is the easy part, it's the diet which is super hard and does all the work.


camper_chef

You look FREAKING AWESOME!! Serious inspo.


unusedusername42

Your hair is *fantastic*!

Yes at 720p !


novasupersport

Looking great. I bet you're feeling great as well. What type of workout? Please tell me more about calorie deficit.


thumpetto007

You consume less calories than you use. Its done by approximating the calorie count of all the food you eat, by weight of food (using kitchen scale) and nutritional facts, or google (add 10% to the claimed calorie counts, most nutritional fact calories are higher than claimed) dont forget to measure EVERYTHING including oils, especially at the beginning when you are developing your calorie knowledge base. Then making sure your overall calorie intake is less, usually by 500-1000 calories, than your basal metabolic rate. (Calculated by weight, height, age, activity level...) Iirc 1000 Calorie deficit per day is 2 pounds lost per week. (7000Calories over or under is 2 pounds lost or gained) keep in mind as you lose weight, become more active, more fit, there are other metabolic changes that you have to account for, so to maintain that 1000 deficit, you might be eating more or less as you progress. Also, moderate to intense cardio elevates your metabolism for 24-36 hours afterwards, and having more musclemass (developed over many months, it takes a long time unless using drug enhancements) burns much more calories even if you are literally laying down sleeping all day. Thinking and talking...just simply utilizing your brain also burns a lot of calories, so an active social life, one with at least the occasional philosophy/intellectual meetup, along with active self reflective, mental games/work peppered in there can really help burn calories, surprisingly. Oh, and the brain requires a minimum of 500 calories daily, at rest, to correctly control bodywide systems, and you require specific vitimans and minerals, fats, carbs, phytonutrients...etc for proper health. It is essential that you get a full nutritional/metabolic blood panel at least once, a few months into the lifestyle change, to make sure you arent deficient, or over supplementing. So the bare minimum to never fall below is 500 Calories per day, and I dont recommend even coming close to that for safety. Unless you prepared correctly for a fast, and thats a whole other thing to learn about to do safely and healthily EDITed because it seemed like I was recommending something unsafe


PaladinsLover69

You’re downright majestic! Congrats on your path of health. Peace!

Pretty d@mn impressive, I would say. I would guess that hard work and dedication had at least as much, if not more, for your gains than the nutrition. Nutrition can only take you so far. Youve never seen a relatively this guy that eats healthy? Congratulations and Much continued success.


LooneyonReddit

From goofy sidekick to the bad ass protagonist. Nice work!


QuantumRealityBit

If Jason Momoa ever stopped acting, you could take over :p Great job!
