How Did Your Bodybuilding Journey Begin?

I started bodybuilding four years ago to complement thai boxing, which I practiced. I weighed 172 pounds at 6-foot-3. My first two years of bodybuilding was laborious; no training plan. My objective was to gain weight, which I achieved in November 2011 at 229 pounds with a body fat percentage of 18-20. In hindsight, I really didn't accomplish much with this tactic. My fascination for bodybuilding prompted me to earn a diploma as sports coach and apply what I learned. My training became structured and my nutrition came around. I began to see differences in a few short months.
