I am currently 19 years old, and been trying to gain the most amount of muscle I possibly could to be ripped and lean. I started working out when I was 17, but did not get serious until I got to college (which puts me at the age of 18). I did not really know anything about working out at the gym, because before I only worked out at home doing push-ups and sit-ups at home and at that time I thought I was buff (but I was wrong). So when I started working out at school, I searched the Internet and I stumbled upon Scott Herman, which I could say is best thing that happened to me in my fitness journey. I always watched all of his videos on YouTube, then right before the New Year (2016) Scott said he was going to release a 12 week transformation challenge in the New Year and I decided I had to join and give it my all.
Before this 12 week transformation I really never touched the barbell, other than doing the bench press. Through Scott’s 12 week transformation challenge I learned a lot of information and also a lot of confidence in the gym and I think I can concur a lot more than at the beginning in January. For example I have gained a lot of strength and got much leaner than I have ever been. For the three main lifts my personal records (PR) had gone up quite a bit. My bench press was 115 pounds and my current PR is 175 pounds, almost 185 but my spotter helped a bit and that means I did not count it. Remember, I never did a squat or a deadlift prior to this challenge. My deadlift, for the first time was also 115 pounds but now it is 255 pounds. Lastly my squat used to be 95 pounds and now is 205 pounds. I have made crazy progress in this challenge and plan on continuing to gain more muscle and get even leaner. Scott has made a huge impact in my life and is a great motivation to push you to your limits, just never give up and you can get more results then you ever imagine!
