Why I Got Started

I have the kind of a personality that loves to get things done and accomplish challenges that people think are impossible. I believe that an individual should try to move ahead despite the obstacles faced and should be motivated enough to achieve maximum rewards. To be honest, I wasn't athletic at all because of my weight, it was becoming a big issue for me and I had to figure out a solution to overcome this problem.

Previously, I didn't have any sort of knowledge about weight training or keeping fit. I didn't even know what reps and sets were. I was almost completely ignorant in this field. A few years back, my weight was continuously increasing at a phenomenal rate; I had problems trying to wear the T-shirts I always wanted to wear. My friends used to tease me and that hurt my feelings so much that I started to think seriously about my future and how I looked.

My dad forced me to join a local gym, and I was so afraid to even enter because of the new environment and the people. I had little confidence to even start up a conversation. That first day when I started training I completely changed myself!

Athletic? Yes, he is!

How I Did It

The first and the foremost thing you need to realize is that not everything is easy to accomplish in a good manner, however it's probably not impossible as well, you just need to stick with it and be consistent with what you do and the results will come soon. You need to get rid of all the negative thoughts if you want to be a champion. You can take all the examples of the great athletes such as Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lee Haney; they all have great mental power and the desire to achieve their goals.

I use to read all the available articles on fitness around the Internet and on and it helped me to understand how the body works and how to train different body parts with maximum intensity. I didn't have any qualified trainer that could help me to reach my goals, I realized earlier that in order to achieve and fulfill your dreams, you need to work day and night, ignoring all the setbacks and dedicating all your energies that will enable you to achieve something that is more than beautiful.

Diet is the most important thing aside from training and the mental aspect. I eat 5-6 meals per day with 2-3 hours in between. This is the most important thing that every fitness athlete or young bodybuilders should do as it speeds up your metabolism, encouraging faster fat loss and rapid muscle gain.

Water intake is also important in reducing weight, it will flush out harmful toxins and will purify your system enabling the nutrients to travel through the body efficiently and thus will contribute positively to your goal. Furthermore, it will also help you to prevent water retention and will make your muscles look much leaner than just doing weight training alone.

I am not a big fan of supplements actually, all of my success came from consuming natural foods such as chicken, fish, eggs, and low fat milk for protein and carbohydrates such as rice, pasta, bran bread and of course leafy green vegetables.

Another important thing I did to get leaner is that I trained harder and harder as I progressed, this will keep your muscles guessing and will help you to cope up with the new challenges in the gym. My friends and family supported me as much as they could; I would not have reached my goal without the love and support from my close ones.

Challenges beware! Mohammad is coming for ya'.


Diet is the most important aspect of bodybuilding and achieving that hard lean look that turns heads. The following is one of the examples of my diet routine that I follow.

Meal 3:

Meal 4: Pre Workout

Meal 5: Post Workout

Meal 6:

Meal 7:


You can't achieve your dream physique just by following a good diet plan, you need to be consistent with your training to add lean mass to your frame and have that nice muscular look that many dream of.

The following is an example of one of my training routines:

Day 1: Chest/Back

Warm Up:





Day 2: Biceps/Triceps





Day 3: Rest

Day 4: Shoulders/Forearms




Day 5: Legs


Day 6: Rest

Day 7: Rest

I train abdominals every other day for 15-20 minutes consisting of leg raises and crunches.

Suggestions for Others

Never ever give up in life, just move ahead and focus on your goals; you will achieve it one day. Train hard, eat well and sleep tight and see your body getting leaner. Most of the people I came across were always giving excuses for not training, they actually are not aware of the benefits that it will bring into their life.

People that indulge in harmful activities such as drinking or smoking should try to change their life by dedicating themselves to fitness; it will not only improve their health but also their personal and professional life. Believe me! The feeling you get when someone sees you and compliments about your physique is an awesome driving force that will push you even further to consistently walk on the path of success.

During my quest of getting fit and healthy, I inspired many people not only in the gym but also in my school and others that I came across. People ask me for advice on how to get abs, how to grow those guns and stuff like that. I am always happy to help you achieve your goals as it's always better to ask those people that have already been through it and have found success improving the physique.

For me, a workout is like a job. I'm a student and I understand that for many of you it's difficult to take out some time to work out, but this is how life is. To accomplish your goals you definitively have to sacrifice one thing for another, otherwise you will keep on reading the success stories without doing anything for yourself. The mind is a vital dynamo, it can do wonders for you if you use it in the right manner, and it will achieve for you something that most people can't even dream of.
