Why I decided to transform
I've always believed if you want to work in the fitness and bodybuilding industry you need a respectable physique that shows you know what you're doing.
I was skinny during my youth playing soccer, so I decided to add size to better my game. I saw results quickly and only got more serious from there. The fact that it kept me healthy is an added bonus.
I wanted to become a bodybuilder like Arnold Schwarzenegger, but now I want to be like Greg Plitt. The way he lives life and his positive mindset are highly respectable. I want to follow in his footsteps.
How I accomplished my goals
Consistency and obsession are my driving forces. You have to change for yourself. I never missed a meal or a training session in the past year. Staying consistent with my eating and training is the key. You must be obsessed to hit the gym every day and improve your body.
During the past year, I've watched blogs, training videos, and interviews with fitness gurus to understand their view on hypertrophy to gain as much knowledge as possible. I arranged a personal training session with Australian bodybuilding champion Aaron Curtis to see what it would take to transform my body. He helps me with my diet, training, and supplementation.
What aspect challenged me the most
Getting to know my body was difficult. I used to spend 2-3 hours per day on countless exercises. I narrowed it down to a few that worked for me. I get in and out and hardly change my workouts. I probably should, but what I do seems to work.
My future fitness plans
I aspire to be like Greg Plitt. I aim to become a top fitness model like Greg and shoot countless covers for magazines. I'd love to go about my life like Greg with a positive mindset, intense philosophies, and great achievements. I never want to waste a moment of my life being normal.
Suggestions for aspiring transformers
As long as you consistently eat well and train, you'll end up with a decent physique after a few years. It's a marathon, not a sprint. There's no shortcut. It takes years to build quality, lean muscle mass. Embrace the journey. It's not about how long you live. It's about the distance you travel in life.
