31 Days Of Fitness: After Discovering Weight Training, Harsh Got Shredded The Right Way

I'll start my story with a small poem on my fitness journey.

From losing weight being the only goal,

To the time when goals became limitless.

From getting fit being a necessity,

To getting fit being the choice.

From the time that every little change made me happy,

To the time that every change became little.

From painful heavy workouts,

To how those workouts became a warmup!

Less Self Esteem In College

It all started in the second semester of my College, where my overweight body used to haunt my confidence every single day. Apparently, after getting teased by a lot of so-called friends, one day, I finally decided to join the gym in my hostel. For 1st and 2nd year students, the gym remained open only in the morning slot, which was from 5:30 am to 8:30 am.

Waking up early morning and getting ready for the gym was the most difficult challenge of my life at that time. For that, I used to get up at 5 am in the morning and slogged myself to the gym. This slogging to the gym continued for a month but surprisingly, this habit resulted in the best change in my life. When I got hold of my mornings, my half job was done.

Poor Cardio Life

Initially, I was guided as cardio being the only way to lose weight. Without any further instructions, I slogged on the treadmill continuously for countless hours. This definitely made me thinner, but I also started to look weak.

This was never what I wanted. Later, after watching some YouTube videos and following some great fitness industry influencers, I got aware of the importance of resistance/weight training in preserving muscle and losing weight simultaneously!

Turning Point

My discovery of weight training as being the catalyst to preserve muscles turned out to be the turning point of my journey. Without any further delay, I started weight training.

However, my schedule was not optimal.

I tried the following workout splits:

1.     Mix workouts

2.     Single body part a day

3.     Crazy pump workouts

4.     Lightweight, high repetition work

Real Progress

However, the real progress was evident when I started lifting heavy weights with proper form. Squats and Deadlifts were the exercises which made me strong and increased my strength.

With proper progression scheme, I was able to lift 200 kg of weight on Deadlift. My Squat strength also rose quickly and I was able to lift 150 kg on them. 

The changes which I made to my Training Program were majorly shifting from training a muscle once per week to twice a week. 

Supplements Used

As I wasn't getting a lot of protein in my diet, I had to include supplements like Protein Powder and a Pre-workout one. Supplements don't mean anything unless and until you aren't ready to put in hard work and commitment towards the goal. 

My Final Lesson & Outcome 

With the help of proper nutrition support, training guidance and sleep, I was able to reach my goal of losing fat and getting muscular and in 3 years. I lost 34 kgs and got down to 76 kgs from 110kgs.

People will always be there trying to bring you down and break you, but in the end, all that matters is how much you are ready to put in for yourself.
