I wanted to share a bit of my own journey from skinny to muscle.
After all, I’m not just a guy with a website, but I am also a success story of how with a little work you can build muscle and look great.
I never had an issue with being overweight and have always been skinny. I had some natural muscle tone and I would workout off and on through the years, but would usually get frustrated with the lack of progress and give up.
For most of my twenties, I pretty much ate whatever I wanted and remained skinny but never had the bulk or muscle definition I wanted.
It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I finally found the right methods to pack on muscle and finally experience the gains I was looking for.
Pictured right is me getting a tattoo in Thailand. I never posed with my shirt off much at that stage because I was self-conscience of my skinny body.
I thought if I just went to the gym, that would be all it would take, but as I found out it’s a little more complicated than that.
From Skinny to Muscle
Two years ago I got a little more serious at the gym working out, but I still wasn’t experiencing the gains that I was hoping for.
Eventually I came to learn that two things were wrong with my muscle building program.
I wasn’t eating the right foods: My diet was high in sugar and full of bad fats. I was eating enough protein but the “junk” was really railroading my muscle building efforts.
I was doing the wrong exercises: I was doing the standard several sets of the same exercise working out the same muscle. I learned that muscles grow by trying to adapt, but my workouts were not allowing for this.
Once I got the diet straight and the workouts straight, that’s when I finally began to see the results that I was looking for. That’s me now to the left. No longer do I worry about posing without a shirt!
The same can be true for you. You can have the body you’ve dreamed of if you get the right program in place, consisting of the right diet and the right exercises.
Luckily, there are some great programs that teach you both of those elements. I just wish I could have discovered one of them earlier.
I’ve had to wait to my 30’s to be in the best shape of my life.
