More than anything my goal is to train to look like Tarzan. In my opinion he’s the epitome of fitness. His diet must have been a feast or famine and completely natural. That’s what I’m going for, and after all the knowledge that I’ve accrued over the last 8 years of my life I know I’m going to get there. I’m going to continue posting updates as well as everything else you’ll need to know to achieve. I thought a great way to start this blog would be to tell you exactly how I got to where I’m at now.
I’ve been lifting weights since I was 15 years old. Always loved getting stronger, but when I started to gain muscle and definition I became obsessed. Over the course of my high school career I went from 120 pounds lean to 140 pounds lean. I worked as a lifeguard every summer and I loved it. It provided me with plenty of vitamin D, and the cold thermogenic effect of swimming every day also aided in fat burning. Not to mention all the activity in the water I was doing. I lifted almost every day, and I loved it. I would spend my free time on google searching for more efficient ways of dieting and lifting. I also thoroughly enjoy doing detoxifications. I don’t know why. My mom is also a health nut so we would always share info.
As soon as I graduated I got a full time job at a grain elevator and gained about 20 pounds of fat. I was exhausted by the end of the day, and I had no time at all to make it to the gym. I couldn’t handle it. I quit my job and went to work part time for a Co-Op in my hometown. Finally I had time to work out. I decided to get back into shape and get serious. In 3 months I went from 160 pounds at 15% body fat to 165 pounds at 8% body fat. If you just ran those numbers, I gained roughly 15 pounds of lean muscle in 3 months. That’s pretty dang good if you didn’t know.
I didn’t win, unfortunately, but the competition gave me the motivation I needed to get back into shape. However, I worked out so often and so intensely that when the competition was over I stopped lifting for the next 9 months. I was just burned out. There was this great pizza place that had an awesome buffet right next to the Co-Op I worked at. I ate there very often. Did no lifting at all. It’s an easy thing to do, giving up. That’s exactly what I did, and here are the results. This is the course of the entire year.
Finally I decided that my dream and passion was staying fit, and that’s where my priorities should be. So despite all the different jobs I worked over the next year or so I simply tried to keep my weight down. Currently I am working at a pool as a lifeguard, and I’ve been training incessantly. I’ve been doing the Warrior Diet for about 2 months, and about a week ago I started the Ketogenic Diet. I lost 10 pounds doing the warrior diet, and another 5 pounds in the last week of Keto. I’m hoping to continue the Ketogenic Diet for the next 3 weeks at the least. It’s very difficult however to keep lifting as intensely as I am with such low carbs, but I’m powering through it.

I’m going to continue on toward looking like Tarzan. As I said above, feel free to email me for any type of fitness and health consultation you would like. I have a broad spectrum of knowledge at your disposal so please don’t hesitate. I’d also like to let everyone know that I’ll be starting a fitness oriented Youtube Channel soon! Be excited, and have a good day.
