Name: Ryan Jones
Why I Got Started
Started off working out with a few of my buddies, some went once and never came again but my cousin Robbie Jones really pushed me hard and I pushed him. Neither of us wanted to be the weaker one.
Having a buddy at the gym really helped me push myself beyond my comfort zone.

Tired of being a skinny guy I decided I was going to put
on some size, and after a while I got hooked.
How I Did It
I realized that the easiest way to put on some pounds was to eat more. I followed a healthy diet, but ate as much as I could. Instead of eating a sandwich and a bowl of cereal a day I ate 6 small powerful meals.
While eating, I stayed true to myself and got to the gym usually about 5 times per week, and when I wasn't at the gym I was playing hockey, soccer or rugby, so I was always physically active.
Doing all this I needed rest, so I assured myself at least 9 hours of sleep each night. Like everyone who goes to the gym I hit plateaus, but I would just change up my workout and continue to push myself as much as I could, because I wanted to be stronger than my cousin Robbie as we constantly pushed one another.
Having someone to push you is the best thing that can happen.
