I was a fat kid.
No sports. Lots of television. I used to ride my bike around town, but it was usually followed up with a candy bar.
One time I called to order a pizza after school. When I gave my address, the woman on the other end said, “I thought I recognized your voice.”
That’s a fat kid.
Around the end of high school, I almost graduated from a 36-inch waist to a 38. But the thought of jelly rolling into 38-inch (probably pleated) pants every day was too much. It was time to take action. So I put down the Big Mac(s) and got my fat ass to a gym.
I had no clue what I was doing. My workouts were always 2+ hours. I did a ton of cardio. I did the NYC triathlon.
I thought that if I run and swim (and run and swim) I’d finally get the ripped physique I was so desperate for.
It didn’t work.
I started lifting more and played around with different diets. Tried a bunch of workout plans from books and the internet. Gave up booze for a while. But nothing seemed to do the trick. I was going in circles — high reps, low reps, HIIT, more protein, carb cycling — always ending up in the same place.
In my mind, I had “tried everything.” But my “shitty genetics” were stacked against me. And I’d always have skinny arms and a leftover fat boy paunch.
I got tired of trying to figure it out by myself. I had wasted so much time and mental energy on fitness and meal plans, only to get lackluster results. It was time to get help.
So I got coaching. I learned from the smartest trainers I could find. I studied the meatheads and the scientists, put my ego aside and did the work. There was no more, “yeah but I’m an ectomorph so….” I listened to people smarter than me, and I did the fucking work.
It took some coaching to realize that I had huge blind spots. My training plans were full of holes and my diet was all wrong for my physique goals.
But I learned what works. I learned to be patient and consistent. I stopped going after the next shiny object and learned how to get after my my goals the right way.
A few things I’ve picked up along the way:
- The basics work. Stop trying to figure out the next trick. Get strong at basic weightlifting moves, and practice them relentlessly.
- Be consistent. Seriously, don’t fuck this one up. It’s the key to progress.
- Lift heavy shit. Chasing strength will get you the body you want. Your body and mind are stronger than you realize.
- Eat what you like to eat. When you manage your diet, you don't have to cut anything out completely. Every meal is not a pleasure cruise, but don’t deprive yourself either.
- It's okay to break the rules…occasionally. Don’t beat yourself up if you miss a workout and eat 3 doughnuts. Get back on the horse and keep going. Guilt is a bullshit emotion that will get you nowhere.
