The feedback I’ve received regarding the new Transformation Spotlight of the Month feature (launched yesterday) has been 100% positive! I think unanimous approval over a change to this site or the forum is a first, so that’s pretty cool! I’ve decided to feature the current spotlight all month long just below my daily news update, so new members and visitors will have easy access to these inspirational success stories.

As some of you may recall, I pulled a muscle in my lower back around the halfway point of my bulk. Yesterday was leg day, and I’m happy to report that once again I went very heavy on my squats with no protests from my lower back.

You know, I usually feel great after any weight training workout, but there’s something about completing a brutal leg workout that puts the post-workout rush a couple notches above everything else. It’s indescribable. I truly feel sorry for people who don’t lift weights and never get to experience the natural euphoria that most of us enjoy 4 or 5 times a week. I suppose having a good body is a nice benefit as well. 🙂

Last night I posted a new picture in my journal. Actually it’s a “new old” picture: I took this particular picture after my very first back workout of this year’s bulk. I didn’t have the nerve to post the photo because I was embarrassed and disappointed with myself when I saw just how much size, strength and definition I’d lost over the past year. Well, 15 weeks of hard work and dedication have whipped me back into peak shape, and so I’m finally posting that embarrassing picture alongside a current picture to show the progress I’ve made on this bulk. I think it’s important to note that the body doesn’t forget: if you let things slide, don’t give up! With hard work, it’s pretty amazing how muscle memory will allow you to return to your former self in a relatively short period of time. I’ve never worked harder in my life than I have over the past 15 weeks, but when I look at the difference between these two pictures even I have to admit that the difference is pretty crazy.
