I started taking all types of weight gain supplements and hitting the gym 5–6 days a week.
I was determined to put on some size and start looking my age.
I remember my mom saying “Alain, stop wasting your money on all that crap, fast metabolism runs in the family, consider yourself lucky!”
I didn’t listen – I was in the gym religiously, day after day, sometimes even twice a day. I tried super sets, split routines, negatives…you name it!
I even subscribed to muscle magazines and started following the workouts the pros were doing.
My friends said “You have to lift heavy, that’s how you build mass man”…so I did.
They said, “You have to eat more, any down time you have you should be munching”… so I did that too. I was eating everything in sight and
pounding down protein shakes like they were water….
I got so desperate that I even hired a personal trainer at the gym I attended who promised me big results.
He told me I could transform my body in 6 months if I followed his instructions and I thought he was the solution to all of my problems, except I was broke now but I didn’t care.
6 Months later and I hadn’t moved the scale one bit.
