My Personal Story
I have always believed everything happens for a reason and every hardship you are facing now can have a clear positive significance later down the road. For 7 years when I was sick this light at the end of the tunnel may have been dim , but I never stopped looking .
By the time I found weight training I was still sick as ever, I, spent weeks at a time in hospitals all over the United States, had shots every week and weighed around 100 pounds. I started off under the guidance of our local high school football coach and trained hard.
I was getting a lot stronger and a little bigger but being under 150 pounds my entire life I just wanted to know how to build muscle. In this quest I studied for 4 certifications through the NAtional Academy of Sports Medicine , later helping over 200 others pass their own exams , talked to dozens of pro bodybuilders , coaches, read articles everyday until I was writing alongside the authors I had been following for years and continued to just enjoy training
