Body Transformation: Dedication Gets You Shredded As Hell

This social media influencer got peeled by staying 100 percent dedicated!

Why I decided to transform

In my last year of school during gym, I'd get laughed at for how skinny I was. It made me too shy to wear T-shirts in public, and I would always wear a jumper even in hot weather. As for my strength? I could barely lift anything above 20 kilograms, which affected me at work.

Finally, I took a stand and decided to sign up to my local gym with my best friend. At the start, I only joined to improve my strength and increase my confidence, but as time went on I realized that I was growing very quickly in comparison to everyone else. I was hooked on the gym and was able to gain over 30 kilograms in 18 months.

When I was at my full bulk, I continued to stay motivated through watching videos on YouTube. Then I wanted to be shredded with size. I set myself a new goal and achieved it through hard work and consistency.

My parents became very proud of me, and brag about my body to other people, which to me is a very nice thing. I now inspire people to change and show them that hard work does really pay off.

How I accomplished my goals

I accomplished my goals through hard work and consistency. In my first 18 months of training, I ate plenty of food. I would have over eight meals a day to ensure that my body was benefiting from my training. I trained with all my energy; my best friend would push me to my absolute limits, and I would do the same for him. When I began to shred, I went on a strict diet. For over a year now, I've only had two cheat meals and have avoided soft drinks, junk food, and fast food.

Motivation is very hard to maintain. The way I keep myself motivated is by setting small goals that I try to achieve monthly. Examples include increasing my strength at a particular exercise or developing more striations in different parts of my body.

YouTube also kept me motivated. Watching videos of the legendary bodybuilders and fitness models who train with all their heart and energy really inspired me to want to equal or even exceed the look of some fitness models whom I had looked up to.

What aspect challenged me the most

What challenged me the most was the diet. Before I began to shred, I was used to eating whatever I wanted, which included chocolate, junk food, fast food, or any soft drink. When it came to tighten my diet, it really challenged me mentally, but it also made me a stronger person for being able to resist temptation.

My future fitness plans

My future fitness plan is to compete in the Men's Physique division and try to go as far as possible. My dream is to one day be sponsored and become an IFBB pro. I'd like to help as many people as I can.
