Gabriel Transforms His Physique
My name is Gabriel, I’m 21 years old and live in Bucharest, Romania.
My journey started when I was 18 years old, at my birthday party my wish was to do something to lose all the unnecessary weight, back then i weighted around 98 kg at 183 cm height. I began searching on the Internet and found you, I started slowly with brisk walking, slow jogging, but no weight training. With your diet and cardio advice I managed to lose 18 kg until June 6th 2011(first photo), but I still had allot of fat, I was over 15 % BF. So I started your weight lifting program and reached in 2 years at 82 kg with 8 % BF at 186 cm height, I had gained muscle and lose fat at the same time.
The journey was though, my friends were very skeptical, Quote: ” You are not going to lose any weight, It’s going to be hard, You don’t have the will, you will gain the weight back etc.
There were making fun of me when I was dieting, but hey WHO IS LAUGHING NOW.
Only one friend supported me in my quest.
My training consists of 5 times per week for every muscle group and 5 to 6 cardio sessions (jogging, basketball, tennis)
My personnel best at jogging was a 20 Km race that I have finished in 2 hours and 1 minute.
The biggest change in my life is the confidence level, it’s 300% more than when I was 18.
My biggest advice for anyone who starts training is to have patience and remember that HARD WORK pays off.
Thank you for everything Scooby, you have changed my life totally from A to Z, my future goal is to reach in the next year at 84-85 kg at 7-8 % BF and do a full marathon.
Very warmest regards,
Hey Gabriel, you have learned early the rewards of hard work – congratulations on your transformation! Wish we had some photos of you before you lost that 18kg :) Anyway, congratulations!
