Get fit, Get lit : My Transformation story

16/17 52kg > 71kg 3% > 14%

The picture on the left was me weighing 115 pounds (52kgs) at 6’2 and the one on the right is me weighing 158 pounds (71kgs) at the same height. I had an extremely low body fat of 3% and obviously no muscle mass either. Wanna know how iI turned that around? I WORKED REALLY HARD. Now, I have a healthy body fat hovering south of the 15% mark and a considerable amount of muscle mass. If I can do it, why cant you?
Remember, inspiration doesn’t come from the end of a shaker, some pills or an injection needle. Set some REALISTIC goals. Take it one day at a time. Patience is the watchword here. Forgive me for throwing the cliché at you, but don’t expect results in the first few days. Keep grinding. If you want to be a powerlifter, a bodybuilder, a strongman, a competitive athlete, a Mixed Martial Artist (or heck, even a cross fitter) go and get it. But most importantly, don’t stop until you’ve smashed the goals you’ve set for yourself. Success won’t be immediate but it will be permanent. Your efforts may fail at times, but never fail to make efforts.

Why you decided to Transform?

It wasn't really a decision I made in a day, I wanted to be fit and strong and in the process of doing so, I found myself. I discovered what my body and my mind was capable of doing if they worked in tandem and there was no looking back from there. I realised that this was my home away from home and that this was my way of letting off some steam. My happy hour of the day. It was then that I found the one true love of my life : IRON.

What challenges did you face?

Non availability of quality food at regular intervals due to my college schedule, travelling long hours, lack of sleep, stress due to exams, catching the odd flu every once in a while, wrist injuries, etc etc

How did you overcome these challenges?

Where there's a will, there's a way. It's all in the mind. I always tried to balance my daily activities and I was always optimistic and positive even in the face of adversity.

Suggestion for future transformers

You are capable of doing what your mind conceives, so don't let anybody tell you otherwise. Keep grinding and give your future self something to thank you for.
