Why I Got Started
dot

I got started in eighth grade on a little bench press machine in my neighborhood gym, trying to gain some weight, and just sick and tired of being so skinny. I used to get made fun of, because every other kid was in football or some sort of sport and I was in theater.

I got onto Bodybuilding.com and started reading about bulking, after about a week or so, my dad bought me my first tub of Muscle Milk and a bottle of Redline fat burner, so all I was building was lean mass. Needless to say, I felt a little overwhelmed, and quickly pushed it to the side until my sophomore year in high school when I realized I was still a stick, and had a new gym in my apartment complex that was collecting dust like nothing I'd ever seen. I got hooked.

How I Did It

The gym where I started to really work out only had a punching bag, a bench, and a set of dumbbells stopping at 60s. I went in every single day, switching off between lower and upper body. Usually I was in the gym at night, but eventually I decided it was better to go in the mornings before my school day.

I went in daily, and hit the weights until I couldn't move. Then one day I read that the human body can only really endure strenuous activity for about 45 minutes to an hour, and decided it was time to cut down, so that's what I did. After adding some form of organization into my routine, I began seeing a lot more results in both strength and mass.

As of about a month or two ago, I moved into a new house with my family and purchased a bench press and a rack of dumbbells, sticking to essentially the same program, but now doing barbell bench press instead. Another thing that drove me is music. I don't lift without music, ever. It might as well be considered a part of my diet.
