Why I Got Started
dot

I was sick of all the name calling and bullying. The doctors, my friends, kids at school, my parents, everybody I knew was telling me I was fat, as if I couldn't tell by looking in the mirror. Also I never had a girlfriend, my ultimate goal was to have girls flirt with me and be attracted to me rather than repulsed.

My Dad, who was a bodybuilder at my age, showed me his pictures at age 15 and I felt like a fat piece of crap. I've never been a sports guy, but my dad played every sport in the book and excelled at all of them, and on top of that, he had a physique that was considered perfect by most standards. I felt as though I wasn't the son he wanted.

I was the complete opposite of him at my age. His competition pictures were mind blowing; he had a body I could only dream of, and abs that were absolutely shredded. He always had an interest in sports and fitness that I eventually inherited.

One day I noticed the giant stack of FLEX magazines that he had accumulated over the years; I began to look through them in curiosity after seeing the hulking arms of Peter Putnam gracing the cover of a 2006 issue. I decided right then and there I would do anything to get arms like his.

How I Did It
dot

The first year was my 8th grade year. Before I had decided to try for a bodybuilder physique, I just wanted to lose the weight. So I started dieting on only fruits, vegetables, and lunch meat sandwiches. I didn't know how to read nutrition labels, and I didn't know much about carbs and calories, and I just knew what was generally healthy.

I found a pair of 10 pound dumbbells in my basement. My arms could only handle 10 curls every other day. My arms would be riveting with pain afterward considering I had never picked up a weight or strained my muscles in my life. By the end of 8th grade I weighed only 130 pounds. I was very proud, but now I wanted to do better than weight loss, I wanted a good physic.

I asked my dad to train me, and he agreed gladly. We started going to our community recreation center every single day, and did a full body workout over the course of 2-or-3 hours per night. That was hell for my body. I wanted to quit but I didn't, I kept at it, every single day, despite the pain.

By the end of my freshman year I weighed 145 pounds, and had a pretty muscular frame. Sophomore year I started working with the football team, and I joined a weight training class at my school, so each day I was hitting the gym 2-or-3 times about 3 hours per day. The training I did sophomore year had more effective splits for muscle building and powerlifting and such. I weighed 165 pounds by the end of sophomore year.

Junior year, my dad bought us memberships to our local World's gym. This gym was much more effective for me as I had much more freedom and much more variety to train as I pleased. Over the course of my Junior year I gained almost another 20 pounds, and I now weigh 182 pounds.
