Why I Got Started
dot

I started lifting because I was tired of being average. I was always active as a kid but I just never had a great physique, I was envious of people with abs and nice builds. When I deployed in 2009 to Iraq I saw it as a perfect time to get into shape. The base we were sent to had a small 40-feet-by-20-feet gym, but it had all the essentials, free weights, cable machine, incline, decline and flat benches.

Our small gym became home very quickly for me. After just a few weeks I saw small gains and I stayed motivated to see more, which is truly the reason anyone keeps going. It became an addiction, for every ounce of sweat and eating meals you don't crave, it all becomes worth it when you take your shirt off at the end of the day.

How I Did It
dot

I started off with the basics. I started watching what I ate. I stuck to chicken and rice as much as possible. I completely stopped drinking soda and Gatorade unless it was essential to me at the moment, and I was in the gym 5 days per week. I started off only being able to max 185 on flat bench (yes, I was weak) and I made sure to not over work any muscle groups. Whenever I could I was on Bodybuilding.com forums reading about new supplements, new workouts, diet plans. I took in any knowledge I could about lifting, and I took it from people who had tried it and seen results.

Suggestions For Others
dot

Stay focused and motivated in the gym. The more you put into the gym and dieting, the more results, progress and overall body composition changes you will see. As bad as dieting sounds and how many distractions there are out there, it's all worth it once you see those changes.
