You know, I used to have a really bad habit of caring what people thought about me. As I became more confident in myself, I cared less. I find that the less you give a shit about failing and looking stupid, the more likely you are to succeed. I’m not saying I’m jack shit, but I’m definitely a better man than I was a year ago. Everything’s growing, my community (@gloryoldschool), my physique, my brand, and it’s all because I’m honest and i put in the work. There’s not enough transparency in the industry, too many fake people. There’s not enough passion & energy. Few people really excite me. I think being able to communicate with all of you day to day, help you learn and show you my progress is amazing. I’m thankful for you guys and the ability to share my journey. Achieve glory. --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

Officially cutting in the beginning of February. I’m aiming for 190-195 lbs this cut. Not going to get crazy lean because i want to hold on to my size, but I’m definitely excited to get my set of abs back, some crazy vascularity and muscular separation. I’ve been eating so much food for 18 weeks now I’m super excited to tone it down with the carbs lol. Also, running 15% off all training plans on my site. “Train15” @ checkout. Figured since I’m drafting something up for myself, I’ll do plans for others as well. Join the team and let me help you. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

Things I look for when I see a physique include the following: shape, roundness, balance, and proportion. This was definitely my favorite shape my physique had. Was at the start of my bulk, still lean but filling out my frame, my muscles were full & round. Symmetry is a huge focus for not only me but my clients as well. We want to identify strongpoints and weak-points, then figure out what needs more attention. You can be huge.. but if you’re lacking proportion your physique will look silly. More volume on weakpoints and less volume on strongpoints, this is how we begin to balance your physique and build solid proportions. --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

This weeks #fle#flexfriday is brought to you by a back+shoulders session. I’ve never done back & shoulders together and I figured let’s give it a shot. Worked the upper back thickness to start, 4-5 back exercises with 4-6 sets each. Then I moved into 3 shoulder exercises, starting with a press and then 2 raises, 4-5 sets each. The pump was incredible, pumped my entire body up. It’s always good to switch things up and confuse your body.

Not looking as big in this picture nor is my pose on point but it's been a hell of a roller coaster throughout this journey. Not quite sure when I'll begin to shred as i still have lots and lots more size to add on but finally starting to see results and a boost of confidence. Not sure if 2018 will be my comp year but Seriously could not have done this without the assistance from my boys @mikecoladonat0 and @ivanbruhhh at @socalsupps ! They are truly 2 of the most humble, nicest and knowledgeable men within this industry.

First pic: Feb 2017 / 5’7 / 175 lbs Second Pic: Dec 2017 / 5’7 / 215 lbs 8-9 month changes --------------------------------------------------- #transformationtuesday We all know people who bust your balls and give you a hard time for constantly taking physique pictures. I truly believe they are one of the most important tools to progressing. I saw myself fuller, rounder, and bigger even back then. I knew I would hit those goals with consistency. It’s nice to look back and see how small I was (and still am) and be able to continue building. Once you start seeing concrete results you’ll never give up. You get bit by the bug and you just have this shit in your system to keep growing and getting better. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

Terrible Monday to start. Samples have been lost in translation.. floating somewhere in the abyss. Brothers car is acting up.. didn’t eat breakfast and had to train with no food in my stomach.. but guess what. I knew I had to get in the zone, think about the muscle I’m working and mentally get ready. You can’t let extraneous variables in life affect you when you’re training, the mind muscle connection is delicate and requires focus. Once I stepped in the gym, nothing else mattered besides my back & biceps. Had an amazing pump.. life will move on. More samples will come. Things will get better.. focus on the positives and ignore the negatives.

Awesome Sunday in Hoboken with my beautiful girl and family. Fun day of recouping from work, training, and the stresses of life. Even though we train and diet, never forget to indulge and have some good drinks and foods with those who mean the world to you. Relationships with family and friends are just as important as training! Happy Sunday. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fit/a> #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

Have you guys ever stopped and reflected on how far you’ve come? Sometimes the momentum of life can sweep you off your feet and your constantly living in the present, forgetting what got you there. Don’t forget about the past, the past is the reason you are who you are today. The most important lesson in life is understanding each day is a new opportunity to make a small step towards the big goal. Everything else is bullshit. In February I’ll be hitting my 3 year anniversary for lifting weights. Feels like yesterday I thought side laterals worked my lats because I thought laterals were your lats 😂. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

2018, let's start off with 5 things probably no one knows about me. 1. I've never seen the Wizard of Oz 2. I dropped out of college after 1 semester (difficult but right decision) 3. I was a 3 sport athlete from age 5 to 18 4. I absolutely HATE pickles & mustard 5. I once puked and shit myself in the same night (unfortunate but hilarious story) - Here's to 2018 🤘 - #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #fitness #shredded #protein #oldschoolbodybuilding #oldschoolphysique #classicbodybuilding #classicphysique

Hit some chest+forearms today! Felt good to put ALL of the calories I demolished to use in the gym today. At this point I think I’ve achieved the size I am going for & I couldn’t be more excited to cut soon. My poses look better, my physique flows nicely and I can’t wait to see my lines again. I feel like the fuckin Michelin man right now, strong and full but chubby. I hope everyone had a good holidays, achieve glory. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fitfam #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding

Most people don't reach their dreams, not because of failure, most people don't live their dream because they give up. You see its not the failure that stops us but then most people stop at their first failure. Those who succeed don't stop at one failure, they don't stop at ten failures, they don't stop at hundred, one thousand or even million failures. They say this is my goal and i will do whatever it takes to achieve it. I will learn lesson from each failure, i will learn something, i will overcome my failure. Failure is the first step to success. Don't stop when you fail, don't quit, winners never quit. They treat failure as a small hurdle on their race towards success. Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail and overcome and fail again and overcome again till their dream is reality. #neverquit #keephustling #defeatfailure #achieveglory #befocused #laserbeamfocus

This picture is today after a fasted chest session. I mean my arm is definitely not that big, it’s half pump/angles. Too many people lying and playing games on IG, guys posting prep pics during the off season pretending they are currently in that shape, it makes no sense. Why isn’t anyone honest? I’m fat as hell currently just trying to grow like everyone else. When you start lying to people you make them feel like shit and they start really feeling like they are achieving nothing. I’m fat just like the rest of you, can’t stay shredded on a bulk!

#transformationtuesday --------------------------------------------------- Side chest progression. These pictures are 10 months apart. I like to share these to remind you guys that you have to constantly training, eat, and practice to get better. When you gain confidence in your ability to pose, your facial expression in the shot is WAY BETTER 😂. Same stringer, just a more polished and better physique with the ability to hit the pose a little better.

Best pump cover around. These Olympia Crew Necks hug the body perfectly, when I lift I like tighter clothing as it helps me feel my muscles work and gives me a greater mind muscle connection.

I have to consume the whole livestock in my area just to get bigger and juicy. Pic from last week I cant remember. Been neglecting my diet these last few weeks and they fuck up my progress so bad. Life is more than just bodybuilding and the most important thing is that bodybuilding alone will not feed you unless you are a top 10 IFBB pro competing at @mrolympiallc stage. Anyway, people have much opinion in their mind. Whatever you do, if you love although 50% of it, never ever stop working on it! 💪😁

#transformationtuesday Starting weight: 160 lbs Current weight: 215-220 lbs Time between pictures: 2 years 9 months --------------------------------------------------- With the recent influx of new followers I wanted to show you guys who I am. The left picture was a Platinum League of Legends adc with an appetite for hot pockets and Mountain Dew. The right picture is still everything from the left picture except newly found discipline, knowledge of nutrition, and a great understanding of proper muscular development. You can be any kind of person in the world, judging by my muscularity people have no idea my love for computers or competitive gaming. You can still have your identity and not change as a person. Weight training did not change me, it only made me a better man. The point is you can always be a better person. Bodybuilding teaches principles of discipline, hard work, and consistency you can apply to anything in this life. Don’t limit yourself, if you want your dream physique just do it. Just go for anything you want in life and with enough effort you will achieve it. @gloryoldschool --------------------------------------------------- #achieveglory #oldschoolglory #bodybuilding #oldschoolbodybuilding #classic #classicphysique #fit#fit#fit/a> #fit #ifbb #l4l #f4f #aesthetics #arn#arnold #goldenera #fitness #wor#workout #flex #shredded #arnold #workout #beastmode #muscle #protein #fitspo #fitfam #motivation #gymaddict #goldenerabodybuilding
