Ever since my childhood, I was fascinated towards sports and cricket was my forte. The basic fitness required for playing demanded everyday drills. And to say the least, I was a champ at doing these drills.
I still remember doing the maximum number of push-ups and running the most laps of the cricket ground. Soon into the first year of my grads, I was hooked onto building a physique.
This is where my struggle started.
All the regular push-ups that I did back in school did make me a bit strong but not as strong as I wanted to be. I decided to quit playing all sports and took up a gym membership.
And just like any rookie, I started weight training twice a day. I slogged for hours on end six times a week. As far as nutrition was concerned, it was simply crap.
I knew nothing about eating and protein intake. I ate what most gym bros ate- bananas before workout and eggs post-workout. Probably the stupidest thing I have ever done.
The nutrition was just not there. Unsurprisingly, a few months into training, I still looked like shit.
Pretty soon, somebody convinced me to believe that weight training before the age of 20 hinders height growth. I got so scared that I gave up weight training.
Soon I was found myself drinking and smoking and soon, this became an addiction.
Somewhere inside, I still had a dream of building a good looking physique. I joined a gym again and then again, as random trainers led me into doing stupid stuff. Yet again, there were no results and this time it tested my patience.Almost Got Into Steroids
Tired of looking skinny fat, I looked at using steroids. A guy at the gym, of course, a regular user, advised me to do it. I gave it a thought but luckily due to being short on funds, I pulled back. I was almost convinced to invest in it but luckily I was short on funds, and later on, I simply quit the gym.My Job Made It Worse
Soon after my MCA, I got into an IT job. As you would guess, it demanded me to sit for hours on end. Years passed by like this and my physique became worse.
For one final time, I bucked up and looked through the internet and came across GetSetGo Fitness and trained under the guidance of Nagarjuna.
Initially, I found it tough to cook all my meals and hitting the gym in the morning, since I came from being completely sedentary. But Nagarjuna guided me in preparing all my meals and answered all my questions.Hard Work Pays Off
With the right guidance on nutrition and training, today I have a physique that I always wanted to have. Right now, I am training right and eating just as required. I have further set goals for the future as well.
