I’m up to $7000. Got a lot of overtime hours last week, which certainly helped. It’s adding up quicker than I expected. Living frugally is helping too, though it’s hardly pleasant!

How I did it: Cut back on unnecessary expenses. I don't care how much you like Starbucks and all those Mocha Frocha Superccinos... you don't need to pop in every day. "Needing" to do things like that are a weakness. The more weaknesses you have, the more expenses you'll have. Be strong, and choose to keep the $$$ in your wallet where they belong. Read how I did it…
I’ve kept myself in reasonable shape all my life. Army life definitely helped. My fastest time for 1.5 miles was 8 minutes 40 seconds, about 2 years ago. Doubt I could manage that now though!
I trained hard and heavy for about 6 months last year. Got up to 210lbs thanks to a high calorie diet packed with protein and carbohydrates.
Feels great to be strong. Gives you power and self-confidence, not to mention health benefits, provided you don’t take anabolics.
The hard part is keeping it up. Diet is key, without a solid diet- religiously followed each day- it will be hard to make and maintain strength gains and mass.
I lost a lot of muscle in the last few months from stopping training.
My advice: If you’re gonna do it, stick to it long term- or you’re just wasting your time, effort and money.
