Body Transformation: Learn How Jeff Went From Zero To Hero

WHY I GOT STARTED

Throughout elementary I had been kind of a nerd. I would read my fantasy books everyday for hours upon hours, played Runescape (Six 99 levels, combat level of 122) and World of Warcraft and I would always visualize myself as the mighty hero. Acne also was a problem. I knew I could be more than I was at the time.

I was also an athlete. I played football, wrestled, baseball andran track. But in order to succeed in sports you have to be in amazing shape, strength is a must.

Whenever I would see a jacked dude walk by and all the girls would just be staring, that’s what I wanted to be. I wanted everyone to stare at me; I wanted them to feel my presence as I walked into a room. The one thing that got me started was that I wanted to be like Arnold Schwarzenegger, my hero. I can remember the first time I saw Conan the Barbarian, and how awestruck I was throughout the entire movie.

That was the first time I had seen Arnold Schwarzenegger, the one who inspired me to become who I am today. Later that night I went and researched him to see who this person was. All of the websites and images just left me in amazement. I than knew what I wanted to do with my life. So I went to my dad and told him that for my birthday I wanted a weight set.

My birthday was in a couple weeks so it was perfect timing. My parents bought me a little set that included 40 pounds of plates, with a curling bar. Every night I would do curls until I couldn’t curl anymore, and ab workouts. I asked to get a poster of Arnold Schwarzenegger for my room so I could look upon my idol while I did my novice workouts.

Back than I had no idea what I was doing, all I knew was I wanted to be like Arnold Schwarzenegger, my hero.
