It's work and family safe. This guy apparently does non-steroid weight lifting and running. He kept meticulous track of his progress starting in 2003.

I think it's one example of Glassman's (non-referenced) muscle building hierarchy: Bodybuilding w/ Steroids, CrossFit w/ Steroids, Crossfit w/o Steroids, Bodybuilding w/o Steroids.

To be fair, I was doing a similar work-out in 2002. Running and weight lifting made for a great combination. Too bad I did not discover CrossFit back then (how many say that around here?).

I've seen that site before. Amazing progress. Just shows what a conscientious approach to fitness can achieve.

Absolultely fantastic!!!! I would post some pics of me, but I'm wayyyyy too ugly. Fantastic progress. Very inspirational.

Diet and training is the key. We may never attain the freaky mass or anything like that, but learning your diet and what works for you takes you to a completely different level.

I see a major improvement in overall mass during 2006. You must have figured something out with your training at that point?

All the best,

The progress (and his dedication) are amazing, but I'm not sure what the reference to Coach Glassman's muscle building hierarcy means. I'm very familiar with Coach Glassman's muscle building hierarcy, but how is that relevant to the progress made in the photos? He's bodybuilding w/o steroids (the lowest rung according to Coach Glassman). Many steroid free bodybuilders run for their cardio. He's doing very typical BB type exercises. Are you suggesting he'd be in better shape if doing steroid free Crossfit?

He's obviously consciously bulked up over that time as he goes from very ripped to much bigger but smooth. I think he looks best in the third row down.

Wow. That man is ferociously methodical. We could all learn from that.

My upper body is more "chiseled" than his from 1.5 years of rings. Do your rings workouts guys. :biggrinthumb:
