Hard to believe I’ve been training on and off for a quarter of a century. I got my first weight set at 14 and continued for 2 solid years and despite not knowing much about proper training and even less about nutrition, I managed to go from 130 lbs to 160 lbs in that time although I was pretty smooth at about 16% bf. But I looked good in a tank top which is all I really cared about!
Then I discovered partying and girls and there went my desire to train. But over the years I’d suddenly join a gym and start lifting again…usually just for summer - tank top weather. Then come fall I’d quit again. This on and off pattern has persisted for over 20 years.
But then in January of 2006, I hit an all time low. I hadn’t trained in several years and was the fattest I’d ever been at about 185 lbs and around 22% bf. I vowed to myself that I’d start training again…but the right way. No slacking, eating squeaky clean, etc.
So at 39 after about 18 months of solid hard work, I’m in the best shape of my life and only looking to improve. No drugs…no shortcuts…just consistant hard work and unshakable disipline is all you need to get the body you want.
