How I Got Started
I was playing high school football and was doing powerlifting. I had a good friend who was in top condition, everyone looked up to him and everyone asked him for advice on training, so I asked him for help.
I started seeing results in about 2 weeks so I stuck with it.
How I Did It
I was bound and determined to lose the weight so I stuck with a 5-day split work out and a strict diet of lean proteins and whole grain carbs. I brought the intensity every workout!
No matter what mood I was in before the gym, my mindset changed as soon as I walked into the door. I knew I had a purpose for being there and I wanted to accomplish that! I stuck with it for a few weeks and started seeing drastic results.
I started seeing my abs for the first time in my life! That motivated me to keep going and push through the hard times.
Suggestions For Others
Keep at it. No matter what happens, if you mess up one day and gorge on food, don't think you have to quit.
Get back on it the next day and bring the intensity. You're going to fail at times but the key to winning is to never give up and keep going.
Also, no matter how hard it gets, you have to resist the temptations for junk food! Junk food will kill your transformation and keep you held back.
