Photos of HST veterans

    Ok, I really want to see some photos of lifters who's been using HST for at least 5 cycles, preferably 10 or more.

    I want to see results.

    I want inspiration.

    Surely, scientific evidence backed up with scientic references, and people posting "I gained 10lbs and lost 2 inches on my waist in 8 weeks" sounds logical and promising.

    But nothing beats seeing it with your own eyes!

    Yes, of course it's not rational to judge a program purely on the basis of visual results, as your current body composition is based on the everything you have done since you were born (including AAS), not just the your last 10 HST cycles.

    But, alas, the irrational side of me prevails!

    So let's see some pictures!

    Would be nice to see some 'before' photos too, if available.

    PS: I realise there's a 'Photos of everyone' thread up already. But this thread is different.

    I went from 165 lbs. at age 44 to 190 in four-five years of various programs including the brutalic MuscleNow, seen here in comparison.

    From there I came to HST, fighting aging joints (that HST nearly cured ) and massive overtraining. I've recently lost two months, been back on for two months, and am nearly back to my former HST size. I have a thread on it here:

    Here's a pic from my last bulk. I intend to pass this size and weight (215) very soon.

    So you want to know what I looked like before HST? Be careful what you wish for...

    Hah.

    Anyway, I don't have a whole lot of pictures from before I started lifting, for some reason. I wonder why... but I do have a good one from when I was a teenager. I was around 145-150 lbs @ 6'1 and probably 6-7% bodyfat. This particular picture was the result of a couple days without sleep and various activities that I don't clearly remember.

    Notice the fearsome 12 inch guns. Okay, maybe they are only 11 1/2 inches...

    Quad, lcars and Joe, you're all looking great!

    I think Totz's past pic is such a great example of why many of us start lifting; we want to add a few pounds of muscle to our frames. Just look at his avatar for a more recent pic. What a transformation! [​IMG]

    Nice ones! Everyone fairly muscular and lean!

    I'm curious to see a picture of the big man Russ with 260 lbs! [​IMG]

    Let's see Russ, Lol, O&amp;G, Dan, a recent Bryan, Tot, Bluejacket, Aaron, TDM, Steve Jones (aw, he won't post), and the list goes on. Heck, throw TunnelRat and El Viejo in there too. We need all of the overthehill gang to see what's coming!

    Come to think of it, one of the reasons I'd quit ABC BB'ing was because there were NO pics of the mods ANYWHERE, even when they went to shows; I felt like they might be a bunch of computer geeks sitting in their bedrooms typing away!

    I completely agree with you quadancer.

    Doesn't matter if they don't have time to train any more, or they don't take AAS, or they are going on some skinny ass diet, or they are injured...just put it up for us to see! Nice to be able to put a body (and face [​IMG]) when one reads posts.

    (Once again, I would like to emphasize that I'm not drawing a link between the quality of one's advice with their physique.)

    Are you implying that there's a not so recent pic of Bryan? If so, where can I find it?

    Thanks.
