Why I Got Started
dot

I have been overweight my entire life, and was constantly made fun of it from 3rd grade until the 11th grade. At 160 pounds as a senior in high school, I started doing about 2 hours of cardio a day. By the end of the year, I dropped to 145 pounds and 15% body fat, but I was scrawny.

I lost my good habits when I entered college and by the summer following freshman year, I had gained 25 pounds, so I was now 170, and about 25% body fat. I was out of shape, tired all the time, and I was sick and tired of getting out of breath after walking up some steps. I decided to make a change, and do it correctly from the beginning.

How I Did It

Luckily my co-workers were into fitness, so I had a lot of guidance from them. Outside of that, I used Bodybuilding.com to learn everything I could about every aspect of fitness: supplements, training programs, recovery time, fat loss, diet, everything. I also read The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding by Arnold 2 times.

I fully committed myself to the lifestyle that is required to gain results. However, I did not dive right into everything. I started training 5 days per week right off the bat, but concerning cardio and diet, I slowly eased in. I think that is the key to keeping your sanity through it all.

Take it slowly, and eventually it will just become a way of life, and you will be doing everything right. The crazy thing is though, my progress has shattered a common myth: that you can't get bigger and leaner at the same time. My progress comes from eating at a deficit, so to everyone that says it can't be done, I beg to differ.

Suggestions For Others

  • I would first like to state that everyone, especially those new to lifting should avoid overtraining. As you increase in size, you need to increase your workload, but if you are just starting off it is easy to overtrain yourself. I would recommend reading The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding so you can know the proper amount of sets you should be doing for each muscle group.
  • Train heavy! Make sure you push your muscle to failure with every set. The last extremely painful reps are the ones that make your muscles grow!
  • Like Arnold said, try sets of 9s, 10s, 11s, your body isn't used to those.
  • I am taking this from Transformation of the Week winner Matthew Kosloski: "Eat with your mind, not with your body. Do what you know is right."
  • If you are trying to lose weight, make sure you're eating enough!
  • Eat to live, don't live to eat.

Eat To Live, Don't Live To Eat.

  • Never say never. Where there's a will there's a way.
  • Find a mentor, someone who knows a lot about being fit. Mine is Corey Voges, he is the man with the plan, and I owe him big time for teaching me how to train.
  • Finally, a proper diet is just as important as a proper training program. Both are needed for expedient results.
