Why I Got Started
dot

I got into fitness because I wasn't happy with the way I looked. I joined a boot camp challenge and got up 3 days per week at 5:30 a.m. and went to these classes where we did total body workouts and afterward I went to the gym to focus on specific muscle groups.

I Got Into Fitness Because I
Wasn't Happy With The Way I Looked.

I worked 3 jobs and went to school full time. I designed all of my workouts by using the Bodybuilding.com Exercise Directory, but I still didn't have the nutrition part down. Once I started seeing changes I decided to hire a trainer to take it to the next level where I could get help with the nutrition as well as workouts.

How I Did It

I hired a trainer and started to get real serious and changed my diet. I started seeing more results and started to drop weight. I had a problem with losing the few extra pounds and they finally started to fall off.

I Started Seeing More Results
And Started To Drop Weight.

I was getting more compliments and more people were coming up to me in the gym asking if I trained or what my training consisted of. It was a great feeling.

READING THIS WORKOUT LOG
Each set of reps will correspond to the set that you are currently on. For example, Barbell Bench Press: 4 sets of 12, 10, 8, 8 reps. Your first set will be 12 reps, the second set will be 10 reps, the third will be 8 reps and so on until you have completed all 4 sets.

Failure - That point in an exercise at which you have so fully fatigued your working muscles that they can no longer complete an additional repetition of a movement with strict biomechanics.

Pyramids - Increasing the weight with each new set while decreasing the number of reps. The weight is then reduced and the reps increased.

Suggestions For Others

I just want to let people know that if there is a will there's a way. It is hard work to lose weight and give up certain foods. If you really want it then it can happen. I didn't have many people in my corner who understood why I was doing what I was doing.

I had to stop listening to those people and focus on my needs and wants. I am very happy now and Bodybuilding.com is a place where I can come and talk to people and listen to their experiences and learn from them.

If You Really Want It Then It Can Happen.

I love belonging to a community of people with the same dreams and aspirations as myself. I've read many stories on here of people struggling with weight issues and it inspires me to get up and go everyday! Fitness is no longer about just going to the gym, it is a way of life, my lifestyle.
