This was me...just starting my fitness journey getting fit, chasing big weights, and putting on massive amounts of muscle.
As a beginner, I had very limited knowledge of dieting, training, or the bodybuilding lifestyle. I was taking every advice from all the "big fellas" in the gym, stereotypical "fitness" magazines, and believing all the hype that came from the supplement industry.
I wasted several years debunking useless methodologies that left me spinning my wheels trying to make progress from all my hard work.
This is me today...I have found what is truly needed to create a well balanced fitness lifestyle that has allowed me to excel physically and mentally, as well as in my personal life outside the gym.
Through several years of research, modification and application, I discovered that less is more and filtered out the unnecessary 'noise' in the fitness industry.
I wish I knew back then what I know now. I would absolutely give this knowledge to my younger self to eliminate all the guesswork. Lucky for you, this won't be the case!
