4.5 year natural body transformation. Over 40+ lbs of muscle with overtraining and good nutrition. Was always athletic and had good genetics for sports. Dunked a basketball sophomore year at 5 foot 10. Currently 6'1".

There are no limits if you keep pushing and being clever with your approach.

What Was Your Life Like Before Your Transformation?

Was always the class clown and very athletic. Loved improving physically and it switched over from basketball to bodybuilding.

Fresh out of high school. I was skinny and decided not to pursue college basketball. I knew that with less activity I would get fat so I starting hitting the weight room and I saw me some gains. I didn't start it to impress girls. I did it to keep up physically.

What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?

Learning. Learning and applying is by far the biggest challenge. You need to constantly try new things and learn how your body works and what it responds better too and that takes time.

Detail Your Workout and Cardio Plan During Your Transformation

I basically always did an eight month bulk and a four month cut. In the first 2 years I would do more of a powerbuilding type of workout. Last fewyears, however, I have focused more on volume and rep timing and time under tension and not just the weight itself. To maintain this conditioning all I did was 45-1 hour of cardio total per week.

Detail Your Diet/Eating Plan During Your Transformation

IIFYM works! I tried eating clean, low carb diets, etc. Nothing got me more shredded than simply keeping track of the numbers. I do still eat clean and try to avoid junk.

I usually bulk for eight months and cut for four. That's helped me stay relatively lean.
