My motivation to get back into lifting was after I ran into a guy I used to play rugby with about a decade ago when I was lifting regularly.
The first thing he said after the obligatory “Hey there” was “wow, you’re so much smaller than you were when we played together”.
Just kindof motivated me to hit the gym. Peak rugby playing weight was 88kg. When I ran into my mate, I weighed about 78kg.
After the first 6 months of training and I had gone from 78-90kg with considerable strength gains, I re-evaluated my goals and decided that continuing to get bigger and stronger was a good, fun challenge, especially considering all the standard bullshit I had heard over the years that guys like me (6ft white guys, long limbs, good runners) couldn’t get big unless they started juicing, this has been a motivation for me to get as big as I can natural (ethically can’t take steroids owing to my occupation).
After 20months of training and hitting 101kg, my motivation for my first “cut” period was to trim up for one of my best friend’s wedding (why I’ve been away the last few weeks).
Dropped 7-8kg in 6 weeks while increasing strength, and now I’m back from holiday at 93.9kg.
Now its time to add a few new supplements (natural), and to get bigger and stronger.
What’s the motivation now?
Personal challenge to find my limits
To show up pussies in the gym
To make girls freak out
To be healthy and strong
To get big enough while staying relatively lean so that I can seriously consider having a go at a show
Yep. 20 months of regular training down. That’s my nice beginning base over with.
Now its time for the serious stuff.
