Why I Decided To Transform
Starting my freshman year in high school, I noticed how small I was compared to everyone else. I was always the kid in the group who got picked on and was given the nickname "piglet." I always wanted the respect I never got. I noticed the athletic kids got the most respect. I didn't have time for sports when I was in high school because I was always working.
Growing up, I loved being active. I got into skateboarding during middle school and my early high school years. As the year went on, I decided to sign up for a weight training class at school.
I began enjoying the feeling of pushing myself everyday and exercising in general. I got a natural high from the gym, an adrenaline rush that I became obsessed with. From there, my transformation began.
How I Accomplished My Goals
I took a weight training class at first to get the basics down. After that, my friend and I began hitting a local gym. We both wanted to get Yok3d.
At first, we were hitting the gym way more than we should have; overtraining and eating all types of crap.
Over the years I found what works for me, what to eat, and especially what not to eat. Diet is a huge aspect overlooked by the average lifter.
Everybody is looking for the next big supplement. It's all about the basics.
Exercise and diet are what I concentrate on; supplements are secondary. That's what worked for me.
What Aspect Challenged Me The Most
I would have to say the diet by far. Packing food has always been a challenge for me. Hitting my ideal amount of macros while keeping my food as clean as possible poses many challenges, too. You are what you eat.
My Future Fitness Plans
I plan to do as much as I can in the fitness industry. I'm not really thinking about a career per say.
I'd love to compete in men's physique in the future, become a trainer as a side job, learn as much as I can about nutrition, and get hooked up with supplement companies.
