Before Bodybuilding

I found this picture taken from my sister last year in June 2010. I was dying my hair, ha-ha. This is the only photo I can find myself topless. As you can see I was skin and bones and weighed approximately 55kgs. I didn’t start my weight training until early 2011 when I got a pair of dumbbells. I trained with them for about 3 months and then decided to get a gym membership at a local gym called LIFESPORT. Best decisions I’ve ever made! I went there consistently training different parts of the body and never missed a day. I made some big gains in less than 3 months. But still, every time I look in the mirror I see a skinny guy. Maybe I'm developing a case of bigorexia? Ha-ha. If you put in the effort you’ll get the results. It’s just a matter of time and patience. Anyway, whatever you do, never give up! Because if I can do this, so can you.

Arrrggh! what am I doing? 


My scale is broken. :(

Will update this later.

Diet Update

Just the usual beef, chicken and fish! There was this day where I literally ran out of food and all I could find was canned turkey and kidney beans. Mmhmm.

6 eggs with a dash of soy sauce and 3 bread rolls

White rice with steak and steamed vegetables. 

Baked fish fillets with low fat mayonnaise and steamed vegetables.

Steamed fish with low fat mayonnaise.

I ran out of food and this was all I could find. Fried canned turkey and kidney beans. Mmhmm. *gag*

New Supplements

I got Syntha-6 from iHerb this month and it has to be one of the best tasting protein supplements I have ever tasted. I got the cookies and cream flavour and it taste exactly how it sounds, it even had cookie bits in it! I had some trouble mixing it, the powder tends to clump too easily and I end up chewing my shake.

I also got N.O.-Xplode which is a pre-workout supplement. You drink N.O.-Xplode just before a work out, and it gives you a major boost in energy, focus, blood flow, muscle pumps and overall intensity. The flavour I got was fruit punch and the taste wasn't too pleasant, it reminds me of cough medicine. Mixing got annoying, it froths a lot and then becomes impossible to drink. 

Next to try on the list:
  • Jack3D
  • Beta-Alanine

I Just recently bought the action side shift 1000, and I’m still in the progress of building it. The machine features; chest press, lat pull down, tricep push down, leg & arm curls and peck deck. The machine includes; lat pull down bar, lower pull bar, ankle strap and 50kg plates.

So many parts! 

List of what I still need to get: 
  • Curl bar
  • Olympic bar
  • Bench press
  • More weights
