Why I Got Started

Ever since I was a young boy, I have always had different passions throughout my life. As a preteen, I was obsessed with video games, striving always to get to the next level, at any cost.

Currently, I am in the phase in my life where bodybuilding is my new fascination, where my satisfaction is achieved by reaching different types of levels. Instead of working on the difficulties of the game, I am working with more difficult weights.

Day in and day out, I strive to succeed in bodybuilding, because for me it's the type of gain I will never beat.

There's no better feeling than accomplishing a new cut, bulking to a new weight, or increasing my maximum strength.

How I Did It

During my junior year of high school, I decided to make the commitment that I would go to my school gym and workout tirelessly to attain my goals. At that time, my inexperience was evident; I would lift anything I observed without any workout routine thinking I would make progress that way.

After a couple of months, I was dissatisfied with my gains and reached out to a friend of mine, whom is now a Marine. He taught me all the basics of lifting and from there my interest soared. I would take advice from anyone who had any knowledge on the topic.

Taking it seriously is a serious undertaking. For Cam, the work paid off.

However, it was not until one year after I took lifting seriously that I realized how important dieting was. I researched for hours the necessary nutrients my body needed in order to maximize my body's potential. It was through sheer will power that I forced myself to stop eating so unhealthily and to get down to a diet routine.

Although I have made significant progress since I first started, I feel that my work is still not done and that as I improve I expect more from myself and strive to attain bigger and better goals. It helps to have older relatives as well as friends within my age range who share the same passion as I do in bodybuilding, it only makes the process that much easier.

Suggestions For Others

  • Form > Weight.
  • Leave your ego at the door when you walk into a gym.
  • Create a diet/workout plan that works best for you.
  • Research all the supplements before you take them. I know too many kids who just take anything they see expecting to see huge gains and are upset when they don't get those gains.
  • Workout with someone else to help push each other.
Ending Note

I owe a lot of my progress to the people who inspired me. People like Frank Zane, Plyoathlete, a couple of my cousins, and Zyzz. I will always be a part of the Zyzz generation for life. Get shredded or die mirin'.
