Why I Got Started

I wanted something that made me unique. I've always "experimented" with weights but never took it serious until the last day of school.

I decided all summer I'd take lifting and my bodybuilding diet serious. Well let's just say it lasted a lot longer than the summer! I was quickly hooked and couldn't stop. I wanted to change how I looked because I knew it would make me feel better.

How I Did It

I bought a home gym and the rest is history. I lifted in my basement everyday. Sure, there were days I didn't want to go down to the freezing cold basement but I did anyway. I worked really hard. I realized that diet is half the battle and I completely cut out the junk food from day one on my diet.

I used Nitro-Tech Hardcore and naNO Vapor. I'm a big Muscletech fan and I wouldn't use anything else.

Suggestions For Others

You have to start somewhere, everyone does. You will not see results right away. You have to keep working and never give up. I'm a big believer in "if you can believe it, you can do it!"
