I was in my senior year of high school being 6'6" and weighing about 165lbs. I played basketball my whole life but when I got to high school I had 22 broken bones and 2 surgeries in 3 years all playing basketball.
After my junior year I had shoulder surgery on my right shoulder which was the end of my basketball career. So senior year I didn't play any sports I just went to the gym but didn't take it too seriously until the end of my senior year.
What Were Your Major Struggles or Challenges?
My major struggles during this transformation have been finding a way to get all the food I need to eat down to continue to bulk. In the beginning it was a lot easier because I never ate well in high school so just changing my diet slightly allowed me to put on weight fast.
But once I got to be 200lbs its a lot harder to continue to bulk having to eat over 5k cals a day.

What Was Your Major Accomplishment, or Major Milestones?

Detail Your 3 Biggest Mistakes
My three biggest mistakes were:
- Under eating in the beginning which caused me to plateau at 200lbs for a while.
- Not training as hard in the first few months as i do now.
- Not doing exercises I hated/wasn't good at in the beginning like deadlifts and barbell rows
- Consistency is key.
- Don't worry about what everyone else is doing focus on yourself.
- Be patient nothing happens overnight.
Stay consistent you wont see changes overnight but if you stay dedicated results will start to come with time.
