Title: DamageControl's Wife
Post by: DamageControl on October 14, 2014, 09:06:12 pm
Hi Guys,

8 months ago today my wife and I decided to get in shape and start lifting weights.  We are both in our mid 40's and decided it was time for a change.  It was one of the best decisions we have every made.  We both feel a lot healthier and stronger, and my wife is really enjoying her new look.  Here are some progress pictures of her:

Before to 12 Weeks:

Before to 16 Weeks:

And these pictures are current as of now, 8 months of lifting 5 days a week and eating right:

Hope you all enjoy, and if so, give a newbie some Karma! :)

Post by: DamageControl on October 16, 2014, 08:14:59 pm
Thanks for the kind words.  We must have taken hundreds and hundred of pictures over the last 8 months, we try to take some every week to track progress.  She's gained over 2" in her arms (from 9.75" to 12"), and has lost 8% bodyfat.  Even with the bodyfat loss, she still gained 15 lbs.  Although I've gained a bunch too, percentage wise she's beating me.  I don't want to post too many more of the past pictures, but I will try to update this thread once a month or so with her progress. 

But, here is another before picture with the 9.75" arms:
(http://thumbnails112.imagebam.com/35824/20dd39358232712.jpg) (http://www.imagebam.com/image/20dd39358232712)

And here are some more afters, taken between 4 to 6 weeks ago, with the 12" arms:

I'm really very proud of her hard work and dedication.  We look forward to our workouts together.

Congratulations ! Sticking to long enough to results is half the battle! My only advice to you is to continue the positive reinforcement... It works wonders.

Way to go to you and your bride!

Here's one from last week.  The picture on the left is from January, the one on the right from last week.  She gained 20 lbs in that time.

We just passed the one year mark of us lifting heavy.  Her arms are now as big as mine were before I started lifting.  She's still going strong!  Some new pictures, first one relaxed, second one flexing.

We spent Easter morning where we should, in the gym!  Today is 59 weeks since she started.  Picture on the left is week 35, picture on the right is week 59, this morning.  She said she really didn't see much of a difference, but I told her she's crazy, muscles are popping out everywhere.  On the left she is curling a 30lb barbell, on the right, two 20lb dumbbells.  She does 3 sets of 15 reps with them as part of her routine.

You're blessed, dude. Your wife is making great, steady gains. She looks younger, sexier and more confident. Her body is slamming, but I'd add that she actually is even prettier as her face is more youthful and healthy-looking.
Title: Re: DamageControl's Wife
Post by: DamageControl on April 18, 2015, 09:22:08 pm
Thanks for the nice comment bicepboy.  You know I never really thought about it until you said it, but you're right.  She is looking much younger and thinner in her face.  Even though she has gained over 20 lbs, she lost a lot of fat.  This side by side picture really shows it.

Again, thanks everyone, we're going to keep pushing on!  Karma please if you like what you see.

Thanks all.  She really put the time in and worked hard.  A couple of pictures from last night. The first is my wife in one of her dresses (almost none of them fit anymore). The second is a bikini that I just got for her.  She's almost 44 years old and was self conscious about her body before she started lifting weights.  Now, she is very proud and can't wait to wear it this summer.

She is looking to get a bit more toned.  Her ultimate goal is a six-pack (depending on how the light hits her, we are starting to see abs now).  She's not looking to add too much more muscle mass, maybe another 10lbs or so.
Title: Re: DamageControl's Wife
Post by: achilleus on May 17, 2015, 02:12:52 pm
Big respect ! She is in the process of developping those typical proportions that only hard working athletes have. Details like ... the chestbone overshadowing flat abs. Or shoulders clearly sticking out.

Enjoy the progress, guys !

You are so blessed to have made your wife as your lifelong partner. Your wife has always been a beautiful and a sexy woman even before she lifted weights. It is great to see her work out hard to sculpt a toned defined muscular body. She seems to be expressing her feminine beauty much better now that she has a sexier body she is proud to show off.

Left is 6 years ago in her late 30's, right is now in her mid 40's.  I nominated her for Girl of the Week at the GirlsWithMuscle site, so if you want to you could vote for her (or against her if you like someone else).

She's still up a total 25 lbs or so.  But body fat % keeps dropping.  She started at about 30% body fat, now down to 20%.  So, she gained a lot more muscle.

Thanks all. 

No pharma assistance, we both are all natural. A month ago I had mentioned to her that her progress was going so well that she is really close to being able to enter amateur open, masters level.  She thought I was kidding but it turns out she was a little interested.  Without me knowing, she located a local pro in the area a couple of weeks ago and started learning the basic poses. She even ordered a competition suit. These pictures were from a surprise birthday present for me last weekend. She filled me in on what she did and asked me to get the cameras ready.  She put together a 2 min routine (with music) and I was absolutely floored!  It almost didn't look like her.

Her goal now is to get a little bigger, trim a little more fat, continue learning the poses, and try to enter an open amateur masters competition within 1 year.  I am super proud.

Not a quality picture by any means, but when your wife pumps a double bicep on a roller coaster in the middle of the ride for the souvenir shot, you know you are buying the picture.

At this point, she loves training everything!  She is still focusing on her back and shoulders a lot, and started doing deadlifts:

We hired a pro to be her coach a couple of months ago and she's growing like a weed.  Coach is handling training and diet now, and will teach her posing and do her makeup for the show.  Targeting June of 2018 for her first competition.  She's up about 8 lbs since the picture on the left taken on Memorial Day Weekend (5/29/17).

How excellent. It is hard for a woman to put on a lot of muscle for a start and to continue to do it when it isn't totally accepted by main stream society shows an enormous amount of self confidence and self esteem. I have had friends who have discontinued training after overhearing comments like "man arms" and the like when out shopping etc. You don't have to go too far outside the status quo to start to attract all sorts of commentary - fortunately this website shows just how much love there is for powerful women to help balance the equation!!

It is fantastic that you are so supportive of your wife - she should be really proud of what she has achieved so far. I hope she does really well in the show she is prepping for!!!
Title: Re: DamageControl's Wife
Post by: DamageControl on January 08, 2018, 11:42:42 pm
Hi Xena,

Thank you so much for the kind words, we both appreciate it!  When she started she was also hesitant about getting too big.  We both started almost 4 years ago.  I reassured her that it does not happen overnight and takes years of hard work.  Now, she complains she isn't big enough. Go figure!  And, her confidence and self esteem certainly grew as she did.

We both have enjoyed our journeys so far and are really looking forward to our continued progress.  I'm super proud of her!

She reads the forum regularly so she's already very appreciative.  Her arms are about 13.25" now and (on machines) she preacher curls 80 lbs and bench presses 150 lbs.  Both 3 sets of 15 reps.

Some pictures from today after training with her coach.  She is now about 4 months out.

In Europe we say: 33,66cm; 36,29kg and 68kg.
It isn't heavy lift for her if she could lift it for 15 reps. I know that it's road to comp., not to max lifts and size, but after season...  ;)

Thanks everyone.  Good news and bad news.  The bad news is that while she was practicing her posing, her suit started to tear.  She bought it last summer when she decided to compete and her back has gotten bigger since then.  Good news is we were able to pick up a larger lower end practice posing suit for now.  We'll buy a good one closer to the show.  10 weeks out progress below.

Thanks everyone for the kind words and support!  She's getting close now, 2 weeks out and body fat is down to about 15%.  She's come a LONG way, and she's really excited about competing for the first time.  She really wants to do well.  I've never seen her so committed to achieving something before.  These will be the last pictures before her competition, all taken within the last 2 days.

@GTE - Great, thanks for asking.  I've been trying my best to eat very clean during her dieting phase to support her.  We are both down to about 15% fat, but that's much more of an accomplishment for a woman.  I'm holding at about 190 lbs, arms about 17".  She's down to 138 lbs, 12.75" arms because of the strict dieting.  I told my wife that I want to look good for her at the show, so I have really been busting it too!

First off well done to you both. I think a lot of guys in the countless threads about dating fitness girls etc can learn from you here. I would think the way you have gone about your wifes fitness has only brought you both closer together. You haven't just been sitting around while she gets in great shape instead you probably are both learning together, training together and spending more time helping eachother grow and improve. ! well done sir

Ha, no competitions for me in the near future.  The cutting phase is a killer and I don't think at this point I could be as dedicated as my wife.  I'll just keep lifting and try to keep up with her!

@cvideod, she entered the show at 132lbs and a BF of 11.8%, muscle at 39.4%!  I was amazed she was able to drop her BF that low.  She was one of the most conditioned women out there.  As far as doing it together, we started this journey together on Valentines Day in 2014.  We never looked back.

Do you mind if I ask how old both of you are?
(I'm 58, and I keep threatening to do a Master's, natural competition).
