I have always been the person to claim that trainers can’t or won’t help me achieve my goals because I thought I knew everything and anything there was to know about working and out dieting. I finally swallowed my pride and told Luke I wanted big gains and at least another 20 pounds of muscle. Not only did he make sure I reached this goal, he has taught me so much about working out and dieting that I can take this information and use it for the rest of my life. I dedicated every single day to achieving my goals, taking meal breaks during work, spent money on protein powder and food, and even missing days of work just so I could get a workout in on Sunday.
Each week we would up my calorie intake and change my workouts to gain as much muscle as we possibly could, then adjust accordingly the next week. As long as I stuck to the workout and meal plan I saw 3, 4 and even 8 pound gains in muscle each week! It was a long dedicated two months but in the end I am the heaviest I have ever been and I’m in the best shape of my life. So for the person out there reading this who was just like me, yes, you can and you will see big gains as long as the time and effort is put in.
