In our society there seems to be this myth that the human body is what it is and that there is no way to change it. People have been fed a lie over time that the body we currently have is just "how it is" and that theres nothing we can do can change it. If we have extra belly fat, or if we're small and lean, then thats just the way our bodies are going to be forever, end of story. The reality of all this being that, though there a very small percentage of cases to the contrary, most peoples bodies aren't what they want because they don't work smart enough. Notice I did not say hard enough. Too many people fall into the trap of working hard, even overly so, but not smart, therefor limiting the results they achieve.
Don't misinterpret this as me saying that I do train smart 24/7. I occasionally train way past any useful point and use to often go in without a plan. I don't know everything by a long shot, and I don't believe that there is any one "best way of training", which is why Im constantly trying to find new ways to train. So that I can find what works best, for me.
These are different stages that my body has been through, and the reason Im posting this is so people can see that our bodies are capable of making vast differences. The key element here, is time.
These pictures were taken over the last 4 years of my life and at each time in the 2nd 2 pictures I was working towards a certain goal. These goals had to be specific and attainable. I first wanted to lose weight, I was too big and had gained too much fat trying to "bulk up". I chose to add in a great amount of HIIT, Hight Intensity Interval Training, which is now becoming popularized with programs like P90X and Insanity, not to mention Crossfit.
This helped me maintain a solid amount of muscle while at the same time losing a large amount of body fat. However soon after I took these pictures I realized that I had gotten too small for my liking. Knowing that I wasn't about to go back through the "bulking phase" I researched how to gain lean muscle over time.
Thus leading to my last picture. The most recent in a 4 year growth and transformation of not only my body, but my mind. It is more than possible for you to achieve your fitness goals... but you have to be willing to invest time in it.
