I lost 20 kg, some of which i have since regained as muscle. I am 5'2" and weigh 90 kg with the aim of reaching 82.5 kg

BMI is useless for my build due to the amount of muscle i have but i am in the middle of the healthy range for bodyfat %

Hi Trusylver and welcome to the forum.

Well done on your weightloss and what must have been a body transformation as you built the muscle. What sort of competition are you doing at the end of the year?

All the best with your goals you don't look like you are too far off but then 10kgs sure feels a whole lot more when you're trying to lift it. :D

I have always had a large build but i spent a long time not wanting to put preasure on a bad knee after surgery (bone damage after tearing all the ligaments in a training accident when i was younger) but decided i needed to get back to doing what i enjoy. so i went back to playing full contact sports (Rugby front row forward) and back to the gym. Now my knee is no longer a problem.

when you are lifting the sort of weights i do 10 kg is an awfull lot.

I am training for a Powerlifting Event.

tomorrow is upper body at the gym in the morning, bring on those chin ups :twisted: and soccer training in the afternoon.

Hi Trusylver and welcome! Thanks so much for joining and offering your help and advice! It's fantastic that others are throwing their weight (no pun intended) behind others even when they currently aren't going through the same things! In return, I'm sure everyone on here will love to support you to get to your goals and celebrate your achievements with you! frequently use bodybuilders and weightlifters as an example of how the BMI is a guide so I know where you're coming from there.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Is it no longer a problem because of all the muscles in your leg area?

Welcome to the forums. :D

yes reckless, by favouring the bad knee and not wanting to put preasure on it i was not helping it at all.

When i went out of my way to build up the muscles in my leg using free weights it not only made the major muscles stronger but the suporting structure around the knee as well.

Bad injuries can be ovecome, it just takes time,steady work and good form during exercize.

If you don't lift with good form you can do more harm than good.
