I got started because I knew something had to change in my life. I had gained 60lbs in under 2 years and it was starting to affect so many every day things. The final turning point was when I became "that guy" at the pool/beach who kept his t-shirt on the entire time. I was embarrassed with my appearance, and knew I had to do something about it. I originally started by reading The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding: The Bible of Bodybuilding, and followed some sample routines from the book. I was doing an incredibly high amount of both cardio, and sets which allowed me to lose a lot of fat, however it made building muscle quite difficult.
After losing 60lbs, I decided to change my training style to incorporate more heavy compound lifts such as bench press, squats, and deadlifts as opposed to all the isolation exercises I had been doing. I also lowered my amount of reps and sets to 8-12 reps per set, and no more than 14 sets per muscle group. I found it much easier to get through a workout this way (it cut my time in the gym by 2/3), and couldn't believe that I was actually seeing BETTER results by doing less. In the following 15 months, I put on 25 lbs of solid muscle, and have been sticking to this regiment ever since. I have tried all sorts of different supplements in these past few years, and after experimenting with so many different ones I have found only a select few make a difference for me.
The supplements I use on a continual basis are: • iForce Testabolan • iForce SecretaGain • 100% Whey • Fish Oil
