Why I Decided To Transform

I was severely overweight and weighed 265 lbs when college started. I knew it was time for a permanent change. Personal motivation, intense dedication, and goal setting transformed me from being severely overweight to extremely healthy. It gave me the confidence and knowledge to help others. Possibilities exist that we don't know about.

We have the ability to do better and be better. The greatest waste is a failure to recognize what we are and what we can become. My goal is to help people get in shape and transform their understanding of life and its infinite possibilities. With the right mindset, methods, and motivation, anyone can accomplish anything.

How I Accomplished My Goals

After my first semester of college, I received a free gym membership through my police course and took advantage of the opportunity. My friend and I didn't miss a workout for two months, which was when he decided to quit.

I was left with two choices: to quit or continue by myself. I decided to keep going and have been going strong ever since.

There were days I felt like quitting. I thought, "It's just one workout. It won't hurt. But one workout missed is another day longer to my desired results."

If I can't get motivated by looking in the mirror, I watch bodybuilding videos, turn on an awesome song, or look to my idol, Aziz Sergeyevich Shavershian. He's a great inspiration and it's a shame he passed away, but his legacy will live forever.

Supplements That Helped Me Through The Journey
With Meal 2 and 6
Pre-workout
Diet Plan That Guided My Transformation
Meal 1
Meal 2
Meal 4: Post-workout
Meal 6
Training Regimen That Kept Me On Track

My workout plan isn't weekly based. It's a five-day routine that keeps rotating, so my workouts are always on different days.

Day 1: Chest/Triceps
Day 2: Back/Biceps
Day 3: Shoulders
Day 4: Legs
Day 5: Rest

What Aspect Challenged Me The Most

The hardest part is the diet. Being in college with friends who bring insane amounts of bad food around 24-7 forces me to bring lunches for the entire day. Warding off friends who constantly try to get me to party and eat pizza or buffets is tough. I have cheat days, but for the most part I'm strict.

My Future Fitness Plans

My future fitness plans are to join the military and become a search and rescue technician. In the distant future, I want a personal gym where I can train people to be healthy. Helping people gain muscle or lose weight is an amazing feeling. Seeing them smile and thank you is unexplainable. I want to enter and win a bodybuilding competition so I can receive a trophy for all my hard work.

Suggestions For Aspiring Transformers

To those who are transforming, keep pushing, researching, and training. Knowledge is power. Don't let anyone say you can't do something. Just because they can't do it doesn't mean you can't. Hard work and dedication is the only way to get results. Continue to believe and you'll continue to achieve.

To those who think it's impossible, you can do anything as long as you believe. The first step is to believe in yourself. Too many people to count used to tell me I can't lose weight; I can't be shredded; I'll never get muscle. I proved them all wrong and so can you. You can do anything you want. Never say can't, and never give up. If you want something, go get it. There's no better time to start than now. Don't be scared. I have a quote I thought of myself, and basically what it says is don't be afraid. If you are, you'll limit your possibilities.

"Your fear limits, that's why you must limit your fear." - Adam K. Breese

Well done, but 6% bf? You can only see your abs in those pictures because of the downlighting, I'd say you're more 12-14%

I'm a personal trainer and I measure bodyfat all the time. He's definitely closer to 6-8%...a male at 14% wouldn't have much definition at all.

Keep in mind his incredible weight loss! his skin isnt at optimal tightness, but i give him so much credit for looking the way he does, iv lost 100 lbs and am currently struggling with that issue and all that will solve it is putting on mass, the bigger he gets the more it will tighten up.... Keep at it man, and obviously dont let the stupid comments get you down!

Excellent, excellent work!!! You are a prime example for people who say what they "can't" (WON'T) do. The word "impossible" was created for those who except limits; and you're not one of those people!! Keep it up!!!

Thank you to everyone who congratulated me and to all the others who haven't and I don't understand why it matters who my idol is? I have many idols, Arnold is one of my idols too, as well as Kai Greene. Zyzz is a prime example of someone who has succeeded greatly and shot down. He has haters, he has fans, just like everyone in this world. No matter who my idol is that's irrelevant.. As long as he motivates me to keep going that's all that should matter. I like Zyzz for his mind set and his personality is some what like mine and that's why I enjoy Zyzz.

If anyone has questions I'm always willing to help! I reply to anyone and everyone.

also if anyone has facebook, you can check me out here (It's just a page I have where I post recipes, workouts, and funny pics for people to enjoy)

Great transformation, but these diets on everyones transformations are pretty much bs...let us know how you STARTED your diet not what it currently is...the basics of transforming didnt come from THIS exact template from start to finish...this isnt a knock on YOU. But a shout out to bb.com and their funky trans plans
