This one is from StrongLifts Member Tuplad (20, Belgium) who used to weigh 225lb, then lost 48lb and now is back to 200lb with StrongLifts 5×5. Tuplad also does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so he has to weigh 174lb for competition.
Note that although Tuplad doesn’t live far from me (he’s from Antwerp, I live close to Brussels), we never met, so he achieved all of this by himself.

You can read how StrongLifts Member Tuplad progressed by reading his 52 page long training log inside the StrongLifts Community. Here are 3 important strength training lessons that he shared…
- Nutrition and sleep are my far the most important things when it comes to recovery and performance
- being sick, feeling tired, not in the mood, or whatever your excuse might be is not a valid excuse to not hit the gym and stall if that’s your destiny. In fact, there is no valid excuse not to hit the gym, unless you know it’ll be bad for your health
- Six packs are in the liquor store, forget about it and concentrate on getting stronger. Getting a six pack will be a matter of 2-3 weeks when you’re medium lean and strong
There are 50 more success stories just like this one inside the 5×5 report. If you haven’t started StrongLifts 5×5 yet, I really urge you to start today. The program works, give it a 12 week trial and you’ll amaze yourself.
