Why I Got Started
I have been training for a year regularly but wasn't concerned about what I was eating. I wished to look better and lose the excess body fat I was holding due to my daily unhealthy diet.
I was also low in confidence because everybody was calling me a "chubby boy," it wasn't a pleasant feeling and I decided that I should start working hard from then on.
How I Did It
It wasn't easy when I started dieting. Luckily I was able to consult good friends who are in the fitness industry to help me out; they offered valuable advice in regards to my diet and training. I began planning my own meals and thinking about the healthier diet which I should be following.
Avoiding deep fried food and fast food restaurants really helped a lot. It's mind over body at times, especially with the torturing cardio sessions and workouts when you are low in caloric intake daily.
- 2 scoops of 100% whey protein
I usually have more carbs when I have legs training, this ensures me to brave through the grueling training session.
- Monday: Legs & Abs

- Thursday: Back & Biceps
- Friday: Chest & Triceps

My training is more of a high volume workout, with over 18-20 sets for larger body parts and 6 sets for smaller body parts. Reps are always in the 15-18 range. Whenever I'm in a rush, I'll super-set my workout, giving my body a new feel. It makes me sweat too!
