Jacob moved the tag of being too skinny

26/27 65kg > 82kg 20 > 19%

Jacob had always been skinny. He realized while growing up that he was very weak and would keep falling sick. He realized that having a better body was a way of living a healthy life and in this process removed the tag of being too skinny.

Why you decided to Transform?

I believe bodybuilding is about the healthy lifestyle. It's great that because of bodybuilding you will live longer, feel healthier, have more energy, prevent diseases, decrease stress etc. I was always very lean and had always admired my friends who would work out and fitness celebrities like Kris Gethin, Ronnie Coleman.

How did you accomplish your Goal:

I knew this process won’t be easy. I started searching for online content and read a lot about supplementation, training routines, diet charts of various celebrities who have transformed and decided to embark upon this journey.

Training routine that helped you achieve your Goals

I used to train 5 times a week working on 1 body part every day with a mix of several exercises which I used to change every month. I followed holistic repetition ranges - low, medium and high repetition range. The routine was “spill over” which mean I would concentrate on one part directly and one part indirectly. The rest period was variable. Every workout session would end with 10-15 minutes of medium intensity cardio work.
