Name: Brett Wilkins
Why I Got Started
I've always been a bigger person, but I put on a significant amount of weight after breaking my leg playing football in August 2009. In November of 2009, I realized I gained 30 pounds and was out of shape and unhealthy. I started dieting and going to the gym consistently on November 30, 2009, with the goal of losing weight and getting back to a healthier lifestyle.

I Started Dieting And Going To The Gym Consistently With The Goal Of Losing Weight And Getting Back To A Healthier Lifestyle.
How I Did I
I started off doing cardio and weights 6 days a week. I would do 30-45 minutes on the Elliptical before school and another 45 in the afternoons after weights. I made a point to hit every muscle group twice a week and greatly modified my diet to induce the best results. I started off taking VPX Redline to help shed the unwanted fat. By May 1, 2010, I lost 110 pounds and decided it was time to try and build some serious mass. I changed my rep scheme from high reps with lower weight to lower reps with a higher percentage of my 1RM and increased my caloric intake in hopes of putting on muscle mass. Through all of this, I realized my dream of wanting to one day be a bodybuilder and compete in at least one show. From May 1st until now, I have been working diligently to make sure that this dream becomes a reality. I've gained 12 pounds back during my clean bulking phase and plan to put on an additional 15 pounds before I plan for a competition.
