Fitness has always been a huge part of my life. However, over the past three years my workout routines had become extremely monotonous, and I had really lost focus on my nutrition. Even though I was lifting weights in the gym 2-3 times per week, I found I was never able to increase my strength or change my physique. And the frequent eating out, lack of planned meals, and nightly treats from Tesco certainly were not helping.
In January, I approached CSS with the intention of completing a 10-12 week transformation programme that sought to accomplish 3 specific goals:
#1) Improve overall strength
#2) Put on 10 KG of muscle mass
#3) Educate myself on the nutrition I was putting in my body
For me, this 10-12 week programme was all about taking my fitness to the next level. Yes, I understood basic lifts and exercises, but had no idea what I was doing with more complicated exercises (deadlifts, squats, overhead presses, etc.). From day one, CSS not only pushed me harder than thought I could go, but made sure every movement I made was controlled and focused.
After 10 weeks of dynamic upper and lower body workouts 4-5 times per week, and diet focused on lean meats and healthy carbohydrates, I’ve added 8.4KG of lean muscle to my frame. I feel stronger, more aware of the foods I consume, and overall more confident. The best part about the programme, is that I’ve learned to enjoy and look forward to my time spent in the gym. CSS makes each workout unique and challenging, so that I am never doing the same old routine. This is very important for me, for someone that is always looking for the next challenge.
So far I am thrilled with the results, and am looking forward to pushing towards my final goal over the last couple of weeks. To be continued…
