When I was 18 years old, I started lifting weights with a few of my larger friends.
We were doing a typical bodybuilding routine:
- Eating 4000 calories a day
- Going to the gym 5-6 days a week
Within 6 months I had gained about 18lbs.
But, here’s the kicker: I LOOKED WORSE.
At least half of the weight I gained was body fat. I had gained muscle in the wrong places. I was becoming bulkier and sloppier.
My face lost it's definition and my clothes fit awkwardly.
