I donโ€™t share these side-by-sides to brag (although Iโ€™m damn proud of my 100% natural progress), I share them to inspire. While the Brian on the left was training hard 5 days a week, I was also living in my fraternity house and drinking 2-3 nights a week. I thought I understood what I needed to be eating to optimize my progress, but I really didnโ€™t โ€“ the drinking didnโ€™t help either. The 4 years in between these photos really shows the power of what can happen when you set your mind to a goal and figuring out what works for YOU. If I could give some tips:
_
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Figure out what training style your body responds best to (bro-splits, powerlifting schemes, cross-fit, etc.) as well as rep schemes, volume, etc. This can be ever-changing, but donโ€™t get pigeon-holed into one line of thinking. Try new things!
_
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Figure out the calorie range (and macronutrient ranges) your body responds best to. YouTube videos can only teach you so much. Eventually, you must trail-and-error it out for yourself. For years, I was undereating because of what I read in books and watched online. Unless you have a coach, the advice you will find online is tailored towards the masses and not your SPECIFIC needs. Once I learned I need way more calories than the average person, things started to click for me.
_
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Be patient. While my progress from age 21 to 25 may impress you, there are also 4 years (Ages 17 to 21) I spent frustrated while hitting the gym constantly because I wasnโ€™t seeing any progress and I didnโ€™t understand why. The Body Fat Solution by Tom Venuto is one of the books that really helped me break through. Consider picking it up!

Added the Ultra Boost 3.0 "Kolor" to the sneaker collection. ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

#transformationtuesday everything in my life has changed sooooo much (in a positive way) my eating habits, my laziness, my whole lifestyle!! I wanted it, so I did it. #motivation #bikini #goldsgym #fitgirls

@feechrystall "Right be kind! Ive never shown anyone the photo on the left apart from my family and close friends ๐Ÿ™ˆ And I know its not pretty but be kind and bear with me!

At 18 me and my wee maw were told i was a lost cause, Id had it so long and was so far gone that I would probably always be a chronic anorexic.

At the time I was happy as anything, I had no desire to get better. But i know girls that have been told the same who are trying their best.

At no point does recovery become unacheivable. It is possible and it is wonderful."

When I played in the NFL in the I had the fortune to meet world champion power lifter Fred "Dr Squat" Hatfield (in yellow shorts). He invited me to train with him and so I did in the off season for 2 years. During that time Fred set a new world record in the squat (raw) 1014 pounds. He went on as founder of the personal training certification company ISSA. Who you train with and the environment you train in, will directly affect your outcome. What does your training partner look like? #powerlifting #power #squats #squat #strong #nfl #raiders #chiefs #bengals #bodybuilding #muscle #goldsgym #lift #lifting #actor #athlete #australia #nz #iceland #80's

BODY BEAST Day 74 // Rest Day = Insanity Live! Round 24 practice + Beast Abs โ€ข Today is a rest day on the Body Beast Calendar and yesterday I received the new round of Insanity in the mail. So since I skipped two days last week, it sort of worked out perfect for me to give the new round a try today! Full body workout, all major muscles fatigued, and this round has a few moves that totally whipped my a$$! Side to side floor jumps always made me angry when I did Max:30, and this soccer juggle move was waaaay harder than I thought. But old school Missy Elliot gave me a burst of energy and I powered through the third set. Also... these lunge jumps are NOT NICE. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I did the strength block from this round a few months ago at Super Saturday and remember thinking "Omg this is really hard". I knew this was the round it came from... and it's still hard! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ followed this up with Beast Abs... and I'll be teaching my second to last PiYo class at Northwest Golds tonight. My class schedule is changing... stay tuned for an announcement!! #hammerdownfitness

I lost 10lbs....๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ I know I will gain some of it back but my plan is to keep the weight off.
Now that I can eat real food, all I'm craving is a salad lol. That's exactly the reason why I did this. So I can make healthier choices and feel good about them.
