Why I Decided To Transform

I used to be very skinny. I ate whatever I wanted and didn't put on a single pound. When high school came around, I lifted weights for sports (football, basketball, and track). I started with typical exercises like pull-ups, curls, and push-ups, and noticed gains pretty fast, which was surprising.

The more and more I trained and lifted weights, the more I wanted to look like action stars in hit movies or guys on magazine covers. Everyone is in awe of those guys and I wanted that plus the benefit of living a healthy life. That's when my journey began.

How I Accomplished My Goals

I know nutrition and supplementation is very important, but the secret to my gains was to work my butt off. I knew what I wanted and went after it; no holding back. Too many people say you should do this or that with dumbbells, barbells, machines, or free weights, but I don't think it matters. Just work hard, push yourself to the limit (complete failure), and you'll grow.

As time went on, I learned about nutrition and supplementation. That's when I started feeling and looking healthier. Nutrition is very important combined with a good supplementation plan. It takes you places you've never been. The gains are unreal. Look at incredible physiques; you don't see them sitting inside eating a whole bag of Doritos or a sleeve of Oreos.

They're always doing something to better themselves inside and out. I believed in myself, knew what I wanted from life, and went after it. That's my secret. No drug, no magic supplement; just hard work.

Supplements That Helped Me Through The Journey

I like supplements, but feel most people over obsess about them. I keep it simple and take Myofusion Probiotic, ON AmiN.O Energy, and CON-CRET.

Diet Plan That Guided My Transformation

My diet isn't as strict as most because I have an extremely fast metabolism. I eat more calories to keep the weight on and stay lean year-round. I'm not into the bulking and cutting stages and want to look good at all times.

This is my current diet with a few added high calorie meals throughout the week. When I first started I wanted to put on size, so I had weight gainers and loaded up on creatine.

Training Regimen That Kept Me On Track

My training is pretty crazy, but it seems to be working. Even though I'm only 18, I don't have the best of knees, so it's hard to work my quads. Instead of a normal leg workout at the gym, I go to the beach and do something there.

My training was different when I was younger. I did more heavy compound exercises, but felt like they caused injuries, so I changed it up. I take a day off when needed.

Day 1: Back/Biceps
Day 2: Chest/Triceps
Day 3: Cardio/Legs at the beach
Day 4: Repeat

What Aspect Challenged Me The Most

Putting on weight was a daily battle. It's extremely hard for me because I have to eat so much, but it's worth it in the end. I could drop about five pounds in a day (not kidding) if I don't provide enough fuel for my body.

My Future Fitness Plans

I'm going to school for six years to be a physical therapist. I'm not sure if I want to compete, but if I did it would be in men's physique.

My dream is to land a magazine cover, which I'll keep working for. I'm currently working on a social network for fitness enthusiasts, which should go well.

Suggestions For Aspiring Transformers

Don't give up. People give up too quickly because they want results in a day. That often leads to quitting or taking some type of drug. Patience and consistency is the name of the game.

Your results will come. Be patient and work your butt off like there's no tomorrow. Nothing good in life comes easy, you have to work for it.
