How To Kickstart Your Motivation By Transforming Your Physique

Are you feeling stressed and depressed about your current physique? Do you feel a change is needed so that you can start feeling healthier, fitter and drop the kg of excess weight and inches of belly fat? Here is how I transformed my physique and how you can too.

Over the course of my bulk, where I desperately wanted to get to 85kg, because I wanted to achieve a 16.5 inch arm measurement... I know super silly, right. I ended up putting an insane amount of fat on, which was hugely demotivational and took a tremendous amount of time to strip off eventually.

I was eating ramen noodles every few days, pre made pizzas from Coles every couple of days, chocolates and biscuits daily, curry rice from takeaway shops... anything I could to add the extra calories to achieve my bulking goals...

I did eventually reach my above 2 goals, but at the expense of having a very high body fat at around 20%... when I usually am quite lean and like to be around the 10-14% body fat max.

Now for most people when they gain weight, you will find that most of it will start going to your belly fat, love handles and will cover all of your muscle definition quite quickly... That's exactly what happened to me and it wasn't a pretty sight.

Once I reached my 85kg weigh in and 16.5 inch arms... mind you my usual weight is around 70kg lean...

I felt sluggish, tired and unmotivated to even go to gym for the first time ever... It seemed the bulkier and fatter I got, the lazier and more unmotivated I became.... it was crazy to me, because I never felt that way before.

I was tired walking up the stairs, I felt depressed looking at my slabs of belly fat and my fitness and motivation was heading down the gutter... And most importantly my confidence was just shattering by the day, because I just felt disgusted at my physique...

It was at that exact point that I decided that I had to make a change and start my cut and drop the weight and inches of belly fat, which were becoming a huge concern for me...

My ideal physique has always been a lean, aesthetic and natural physique with a solid amount of lean muscle and good vascularity... That's when I feel and look my best... that's when I feel a huge amount of motivation every day... and that's exactly what I was aiming to get down to.

THE BEGINNING OF MY TRANSFORMATION

Growing up, I never had six pack abs and I never had any muscle definition... I was the fat kid at school and got teased quite often... Growing into my teenage years, I got into playing soccer, so I dropped most my weight, but that belly fat always stuck around...

I was short - 165cm, skinny upper body with no muscle, stomach that stuck out from belly fat and chunky calves and legs (which I hated, because I was so short) As you can see I was never blessed with great genetics or a fast metabolism and I always knew that...

I've always been a firm believer of dealing with what God has given you and making the most of it, because that's all we can really do.

Fast track back to my transformation, I thought I would start a gradual cut where I slowly dropped calories and carbs and gradually add cardio, to get into a solid routine again...

At that point I've just quit my PT job and started diving into becoming an online fitness coach. My schedule opened up a little more and I had a gym in my building... so I decided to just make the most of the equipment there to help with my transformation.
