Why I Got Started
I think no one wants to be ashamed because of his/her body! Last summer, I had a trip to Canada. The first time I went to the beach, I realized how bad my body looked and that was when I decided to get into the best shape of I've ever been.
Being embarrassed because of my body and being ashamed to take off my shirt made me think about changing things. I needed to gain some self-confidence. However, to change my body, I needed to change my lifestyle.
Getting used to eating every 3 hours was a challenge but I wanted that challenge in my life. I needed to have a certain plan to follow and change my life. Also, getting motivated by bodybuilding pros like Kai Greene and Jay Cutler and others was another reason.
How I Did It
All I needed was some motivation to get me started. Kris Gethin's Hardcore 12-Week Daily Trainer program was the trigger for this decision and after watching the introduction to his program, I was so motivated that I decided to start it.
Watching Kris's videos and training with him was fun and kept me motivated throughout the whole 12 week program. Also, having a training partner was so helpful during this transformation. My cousin in this case was my partner and he helped me a lot.
Suggestions for Others
I have worked out for more than 3 years and I wish I knew what I know now. There are no secret pills that can transform your body! The only secret is to be patient and eat clean and exercise regularly!
If you exercise insane but you don't eat 5-8 times a day then forget about bodybuilding! Eating frequently is one of the most important things you have to do if you want to have a nice body.
Also sleeping is so important. You need to sleep at least 8 hours per day. In other words, eating is 100%, sleeping is 100% and training is 100% in bodybuilding!
