Why I Got Started

I just got tired of being "that guy." You know that guy that hangs around with his friends and is heckled for looking like a toothpick. "That guy" that weighs 130 pounds dripping wet and swims in the pool with a shirt on. I just got tired of being the scrawny guy!

I begin picking up the weights at the age of 24. I was new to weight training and, like most of us, I learned on my own. I was working out consistently however I wasn't seeing any progress. Then at the age of 27, I realized I didn't have the correct diet in place to support my gains.

Up until that time, I would just go workout and not monitor my diet. After failing miserably my first two attempts at packing on size, I rededicated myself to working out again only to give up before I crossed the finished line. In 2009 I made a promise to myself that it was now or never!

If I didn't yield the results that I was looking for, I was done with weight training. I couldn't continue to be disappointed with my progress time after time!

How I Did It

I just kept it simple! Sometimes we can over-complicate things. If you can visualize it, then you can achieve it. I knew if I stayed consistent with my workout plan, everything else would fall into place.

I begin getting more creative with my workout routines and the next thing you know I was seeing the progress I've been looking for all this time.

I am not hardcore like most about my diet. I kind of feel my weight through the day. Let's face it; we all know what's good for you and what's bad. Eliminate the bad stuff and you're halfway there. I try and implement the fundamental rule of eating 5 times a day.

If I'm able to complete that task, great! If not, well there is always tomorrow. I have about 10 different meals that I like and I know the nutrition value of each meal. This makes things simple and I don't have to count calories.


I don't have a set routine, just a set of principals I go by for each workout. I feel that routines can sometime limit your progress, causing you to plateau.

    Monday: Back And Abs

    Tuesday: Chest

    Wednesday: Legs And Biceps

    Thursday: Shoulders

    Friday: Triceps And Light Chest

    Saturday: Light Workout

      The only exercise I commit to on this day is the deadlift. The rest of the time is like a free day. I just do a light workout trying different exercises that I've seen other people do.

Suggestions For Others

Break through the routines. There are a lot of different theories on developing muscle; however, the one fact that remains is you have to work hard to accomplish your goal.

Step outside the box and try different things. Mix it up a little! Don't underestimate the power of working out at home. Working out at home played a big part in my transformation.
