Wow dude.. That's an amazing transformation. I am kinda interested, what did you do?


ig-pryshgr

Thanks. I've been shuffling through things, but broadly speaking, 6x weekly weight training (bro split), daily cardio (running or cycling), and basic calorie tracking (usually in a deficit, never seriously bulked).


davidalmel

Wow great work dude!!! One question did you have loose skin? How much exess were you? For how long?


ig-pryshgr

Yes, in fact I still do - lower abdomen sag, tucked below the towel. It's around an inch or so of a sag but not a huge visual bother. It's improving slowly, so I'll give it time.


davidalmel

Thanks for info Congrats!!! You're an inspiration.!


r_m_castro

You got younger as well.


ig-pryshgr

Hahaha yeah, I get that a lot. It's a bit of a pain really, some girls on dating apps think I've put up photos from years ago.


relatedartists

How are dating apps working out for you? I find them intolerable


dudewtfstop

Depends where you live. An attractive guy like OP could get zero in my city and plenty in another.


an732001

Why 0 in your city?


dudewtfstop

Many factors which I probably couldn't come up with but that is actually how it is which I have heard from many guys.


ig-pryshgr

Not too bad tbh. I'm very aware of how the number of likes I've gotten has crept up alongside my fitness levels. I have the privilege of choice now, it's only getting through the small talk that's a bigger bother.


Known_Personality_80

Talked to this guy on Instagram. Saw him on quora also. Amazing stunning.


ig-pryshgr

Thanks mate!

Thanks man.


Sm211

It will forever remain one of the best and exciting things about this life that, we are only ever one day away from completely changing things, you look like a totally different guy and i bet people don't even recognise you from the old picture


ig-pryshgr

Rightly said! Thanks!


Water-is-h2o

New body who dis


ig-pryshgr

Hahaha thanks


papakop

Damn bro, I'm 31, 5'9" and 140 kgs. But look more like the guy on the left. Did you have to hop on any gear?


ig-pryshgr

Nope. Had to do it the old fashioned way. From what I understand, gear doesn't help reduce weight (it only helps add muscle), and one needs to be reasonably fit for it to have any visible impact (the gym crews I asked still reckon I shouldn't bother considering gear for a few more years).


papakop

Sounds like that gym bro is a good dude. Not trying to push junk steroids potentially making you infertile.


ig-pryshgr

Yeah, they're a decent lot :). Also helps that we're all in our 30s/40s, so the conversations are more candid and balanced. It's the younger lot, usually those in high school and college, who tend to get impatient and get on gear without bothering to ask the older men.


RapidRoastingHam

It doesn’t, what it does do is make it so you don’t loose muscle in a cut. But when your starting out that overweight you’ll lose fat and build muscle naturally, steroids would just cause nothing but problems.


superman1020

Amazing! Are you sucking in your breath or that’s just what your stomach looks like??


ig-pryshgr

Hahaha, thanks, and no, not holding my breath here. Its more of the lighting TBH. Also, I do have a saggy lower abdomen, so all isn't well in the midsection world (yet).


WhatWasThatHowl

Loose skin scares the shit out of me, how're you doing with it/planning to tackle it?


ig-pryshgr

My loose bits are below the waistband, so it's not a big visual bother. I'm giving it a year to see how much I can buff it up. If it persists, I might consider a cosmetic intervention, but that's just musings for now.

You're a bad ass bro! Good for you, you've made such an incredible lifestyle change. Stay motivated!


ig-pryshgr

Thanks bro!


Sunny1above

Really impressive


ig-pryshgr

Thanks


jawnova

What's your diet like? Amazing transformation!


ig-pryshgr

Thanks! I stuck to a caloric deficit by and large. Tried to keep protein around 2g per kg of bodyweight, supplementing with whey isolate. In terms of specific foods, I didn't give up anything, but did drastically cut off sugar, packaged foods, white bread, and polished rice. Also, have only been drinking socially at most.

karnaza

Wow! Did you have a serious amount of muscle already in your before pic, or...?


ig-pryshgr

I wouldn't say 'serious', but it's hard for any person to be overweight but all floor. It's the skinny guys who have bigger trouble gaining. :)

That is absolutely amazing, especially considering for such a relatively short time. You went from absolute potato to model level. Great work, that's serious dedication.


ig-pryshgr

Thanks mate, TBF, 2.5 years feels like forever! I see young guys getting jacked in just a year of working out lol

Lifting stats?


ig-pryshgr

Nothing impressive lol. I hit PRs of 100kg / bench, 140 kgs / squats, 170 kgs dl, and 70 kg ohp earlier this year, but got into lockdown soon after. Expecting a decent loss on even that much once I get back.


healthcrusade

Best of luck!
