Why I Got Started
I have always been very skinny. When I graduated high school I was almost 6-foot-2 and weighed around 155 pounds. I wasn't happy about it but just accepted the fact I was skinny.
It wasn't until the summer before my junior year of college that I started working out with some friends and loved it.
Since then I have been addicted and dedicated to it. It's been two and a half years and I am 6-foot-2 and around 175 pounds.

How I Did It
As soon as I started working out I was going 5 days per week for about an hour and a half each day. I heard about Bodybuilding.com from a friend of mine.
I used weight gainers to gain my initial weight but then switched to whey to lose the fat. For about the past year and a half I have had a solid workout program consisting of at least 6 days per week and have stuck to a pretty healthy diet.
I am always trying to move up in weight and change my routine every week. So far it seems to be working well for me.
