Why I Got Started
dot

I was always the flabby kid with not many friends and a life of computer gaming and junk food addiction. My dad had always gone to the gym for as long as I can remember, and I've always looked up to him as my role model. I decided I would make a change. On December 2nd 2008, I started my new addiction that is the gym.

I spent the first 3 months lifting light weights and doing cardio to get leaner, as I had little to no strength or muscle. However I didn't change my eating habits. Bodybuilding.com showed me where I was going wrong with my nutrition and I quickly fixed my diet and learnt a bit about different supplements and what kind of food I should be eating. 2 months after that I was feeling 200% better than I was previously, I was starting to have a social life, and my abs were visible for the first time ever. My life had been changed.

How I Did It

I started off doing cardio with a healthier diet to become leaner, I then began my 5 day split workout programme which has given me significant results over the past 8 months of weight training. I soon started seeing results, visible abs, higher levels of fitness and a significant increase in my strength. This motivated me to continue with my training as I liked the results I was seeing.

I started to speak to some of the bodybuilders in my gym about competition bodybuilding, also reading Bodybuilding.com whenever I had a spare moment, after talking and reading I'd realized that bodybuilding was something I had found and had a passion for.

I was exposed to bullying up until my 13th birthday, and I've learned that you should never let people put you down. If you believe in yourself you can achieve any physique goal. Put a picture of your ideal physique next to your bed along with a picture of yourself and update your picture every month and you can see yourself getting closer to your ideal every month.
