 What Was Your Life Like Before Your Transformation?

I played for football for 15 years of my life and I was always a big kid. My sophomore season I tore my knee apart and got up to 316 pounds and felt awful both mentally and physically. I decided it was time for a change.

After football I began researching how to eat and train as opposed to dieting and rebounding.

My major turning point was stepping on the scale and seeing a number above 300lbs.

What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?

Staying focused on my mission while being a full time student and working in order to pay for things, i.e. food and life.

Detail Your Workout and Cardio Plan During Your Transformation

I would do about 40 minutes of cardio a day and never less than 20. I would train a typical 6 day split resting on Sunday but still doing active recovery.

Once I dropped the first 40lbs my mobility improved so did my training.

Detail Your Diet/Eating Plan During Your Transformation

Bro food. Complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats. After a while I would experiment with different foods in order to break plateaus and different diets such at Keto and Paleo.

Final Works of Advice for Others Looking to Make a Change?

You can do it. We all can do it. At the end of the day you have to be a little selfish and a little self-servicing but your true friends and the people who care will be there after just as they were before.

Surround yourself with like-minded people and always be humble when you see someone else working hard because they might have been where you were once, so lend a hand.
