Why I Got Started

I got started because I knew something had to change in my life. I gained 60 pounds in less than 2 years and it was starting to affect so many everyday things. The final turning point was when I became "that guy" at the pool/beach who kept his T-shirt on the entire time. I was embarrassed with my appearance, and knew I had to do something about it.

How I Did It

About 2 years ago now I received the Bowflex Select-Tech dumbbells as a present from my parents. I decided that this was going to be my turning point, and I haven't stopped giving it my all since that day.

It My All Since That Day.

I originally started by reading The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding: The Bible of Bodybuilding, and followed some sample routines from the book. I was doing an incredibly high amount of both cardio, and sets which allowed me to lose a lot of fat, however it made building muscle quite difficult.

I Followed Sample Routines From The Book.

After losing 60 pounds, I decided to change my training style to incorporate more heavy compound lifts such as bench press, squats, and deadlifts as opposed to all the isolation exercises I had been doing. I also lowered my amount of reps and sets to 8-12 reps per set, and no more than 14 sets per muscle group.

I found it much easier to get through a workout this way (it cut my time in the gym by 2/3), and couldn't believe that I was actually seeing BETTER results by doing less. In the following 15 months, I put on 25 pounds of solid muscle, and have been sticking to this regiment ever since.

I have tried all sorts of different supplements in these past few years, and after experimenting with so many different ones I have found only a select few make a difference for me. The supplements I use on a continual basis are:

Sample Week Of My Diet

I normally keep things as simple and boring as possible. I like to eat the exact same thing day in and day out, for every single meal. A sample day for me would look like this:

Again, my training routine is very simple just like my diet. All of my exercises consisted of 4 sets of 12 reps.
