My goals were not super clear at first. I jumped into working out because I was known as the super skinny and small kid. I looked really awkward because of how unbuilt I was, and was an unsatisfying "skinny fat."

At first, I thought it would be, "let's work out, we will get huge and get six-pack abs." Just to put in perspective how little I knew...haha. I started out not able to even bench press 45-pound plates (135 pounds) and barely able to do a couple push-ups. It was pretty embarrassing, honestly.

The PRs I currently hold are: bench 235+ pounds, deadlift 425+ pounds, and squat 365 pounds. I am currently weighing in at 179 pounds at 20 years old. I was 200 pounds at my heaviest. I dropped over 20 pounds since the start of this summer.

I have done just about everything Jim offers and really only Jim’s programs. The programs he offers are so informative and are undeniably going to give you insane results.

So far I've done Show Time, Down and up Mass, Super Shredded 8, and Shortcut to Size/Shred. You name it, I've probably done it, with the exception of a few.

My nutrition journey is pretty interesting. Before I discovered Jim, I had no clue what to eat or why it was important to eat. I just thought you should lift and slam some protein powder and I will transform into a beast.

Well, that is not true at all. I hit a wall and I was getting frustrated. I was doing Jim’s programs and seeing light results. Then I decided it was time to change, so I started with Jim’s Dieting 101.

At the time, I weighed 200 pounds. I looked horrible and I felt horrible. A week went by of me hitting my macros and suddenly I felt so much better. I stepped on the scale and my weight was going down and my strength was GOING UP, WHILE LOSING FAT.

A month or so went by and I was down to 185 pounds. I went for a bench PR and I blew past my previous PR. I blew away...
