Why I Got Started

Well my main motivation for working out was not directly related to getting bigger and stronger ... at first. I started looking for a replacement for my empty feeling after quitting a lifestyle revolving around marijuana and aimless rebellion.

During the pain of switching lifestyles and getting help from friends (my neighbor Jesse Hill), I was able to go in a completely different direction. Jesse, who is now one of my best friends, bought a simple weight bench (the basic 20-pound bar, butterflys, preacher curl and leg curl) at a garage sale for $50. This proved to be a lifesaver.

I came over to his house one afternoon looking to hang out when he started showing off his lucky find. I figured I didn't want to just look at it, I wanted to find out how much weight I could do since this was probably the first time I had ever actually used a bench press: 115 pounds!

I was pretty disappointed by the pitiful max I had set for myself. Suddenly having the rush of that feeling (ya you know the one I'm talking about) after working out for about 15 minutes I felt fired up. I knew right then that working out was not only going to transform my body, but it was going to transform my life.

How I Did It

I have to admit my mom was right about the fact that when you throw two 15-year-old guys together, in a room with a weight bench, they are going to try to out-do each other. So my first 2 weeks of working out was an exciting time. I didn't go on a set workout plan; Jesse and I just worked out however we wanted.

I can't say this was too bad; it did shock my body into the working out mode. About a week into my starting journey of a better body/life, I started eating a ton trying to get my low body weight for my height (6-foot-0, and 115 pounds is way off). After 2 weeks of aimlessly working out I gained about 5 pounds.

Apparently, after talking to people, that is an extremely good gain for 2 weeks. I didn't look like a skeleton with skin stretched over it I moved up in weights consistently and balanced out my workout routine by dividing up what I work out on certain days to allow time to recover.

What Supplements I Took

    Starting out I took nothing for about the first 2 weeks. I was more worried about trying to correct my misguided diet consisting of junk food and caffeinated sodas. Because my metabolism was so high starting out I had to increase my eating habits. It was very low at the time.

    I finally got my hands on whey protein which I treat like a best buddy. I make chocolate milk with it all the time as a replacement to chocolate syrup. Not too long afterwards of using whey I started taking creatine, the cheap kind from Wal-Mart with way too much sugar. I was supposed to have taken 5 scoops per day for the first week and then drop back to 2 scoops. 2 days into that I felt sick and dizzy so I cut back to 1 scoop per day.

    I am currently not taking creatine because I'm on too tight of a budget to afford the premium quality kind like CEE. But as far as supplements go I believe the best one I'm on is water and plenty of it. All I drink is water, milk and juice.

Suggestion For Others

Make working out part of your permanent lifestyle. You will thank yourself later. Stay away from smoking; smoking and working out is an oxymoron if you ask me.
