So I've been a reader here for over 4 years. I often see many posts about hitting the gym and why you need to. One thing i never see are pics of the poster who's giving this advice. Rest assured JackDaddy is about to walk you through his journey even from the embarrassing stage. While I don't doubt that the OP's in other posts are in shape, back then actually seeing what they look like would've pushed me a lot sooner to get in shape. I think its essential for helping new readers understand why the gym is essential in the red pill and life in general. So I'll take you on my journey and at the end I'll provide you with the 4 biggest take aways I personally have. If mods want me to verify that said pictures are indeed me all they need to do is ask.
August of 2012 I was in
. Believe it or not I took that selfie to send to a chick I was trying to fuck, never heard from her after either. Just what I needed as I was starting college at 18. After a few months on campus, while I was known for being funny, the only chicks I could pull were fat bitches. I came from a well off family so naturally I used my money (well .. my parents money) to get chicks to fuck around with me. It was a sad lifestyle. Going to parties uninvited most of the time just to be unnoticed by everyone and spectate guys that were in shape get all the action. It really hurt my confidence and I got really down about it. I stayed like that for my whole freshman year of college.
Come sophomore year after reaching around 290lbs I had enough. I got on the keto diet for around 2 months and lost an initial 40. I love food so I went back to eating what I wanted and decided I would run 2 miles on the campus track twice a week, and work out 3 days a week. The biggest problem I faced with working out was getting myself to go, but once there I was in my sanctuary. Eventually it became second nature to make plans around the gym instead of vice versa. Over the course of a few years going hard on and off I dropped down to around 235 pounds and put a serious amount of muscle. No streoids, no creatine, just working out .
is a pic of me around early 2015.
After I graduated I moved back home, I found a great regime, made some body gym bro friends, and eventually I reached hulk status. Here is a picture of me last month (January 2017).
P.S. If anyone wants my workout plan I have pdf's with visual aides.
Having reached my gym status I want to tell you 4 things that I have personally learned over the last few years.
Being a muscle head is enough to get you laid, it isn't enough to keep girls around. So you can imagine that when I go out, I usually end up meeting a chick, more often than not things escalate, we fuck, and boom new plate right? Wrong. In the early stages while I may have ended up smashing a chick after meeting her the same day, keeping them around took something I hadn't learned yet. You know what really did it? Learning an interesting hobby. If you don't have anything interesting going on then she'll get bored, end of story. I have no performance issues but even that wasn't enough to keep a 8/10+ chick interested. So I took up Muay Thai, I began traveling, I learned how to cook, I took a 2 day bartending class, I found interesting things to do that others would want to be apart of. Having interesting hobbies and being in shape has a psychological effect on chicks that makes them want to be part of your life. Just my opinion after constant trial & error.
You become much more controlling of your emotions/frame. Now a days you really can't tell me shit. And what I mean by that is, if you're a guy and you throw some shade at me, I brush that shit off like Jay Z, I'll laugh it off every time. If you're a girl and you shit test me, I dodge that shit like the matrix. "Wow I bet you have so many girls?" "Yes that's why you should feel special I approached you". Your frame becomes damn near impenetrable and it happens completely naturally. The only thing that can really break me down? Someone telling me my code looks like shit at work.
You command respect, without even saying a word. I don't like the term alpha. Never have honestly. I prefer the term leader. When you workout and look like it, congratulations you have put yourself in a category that is shrinking every year.
You command respect without even saying a word. People want to be your friend, girls try to get your attention, people laugh at all your jokes, they follow your commands, you become a leader. I take full advantage of this. Girls buy me gifts, random guys want to buy me a drink at the bar, strangers start conversations, without even trying your social life will rise because you command respect and attention.
This one is really just a gym tip. Fucking stretch. STRETCH.
STRETCH. You are holding back your gains by not stretching. By not stretching you are restricting your body from its max range of motion. You are not targeting every part of every muscle you could be. Imagine 2 guys with the same height and weight. They do the same exercises as each other for 6 months straight. Guy 1 stretches 4 times a week and guy 2 never does. By month 3, Guy 1 is able to achieve a full 3 inches more on his squat than guy 2, who's going to have better results? Not only are you helping your muscles longevity but you feel amazing after 2 months of consistent stretching. You also help prevent many injuries as you get into heavier weight. During my journey I caught a nasty Charlie horse in my hamstring with about 350 lbs on the squat rack. Luckily I had 2 people standing close by as I collapsed to the ground. Seriously guys stretch it out and drink more water too while you're at it.
Tldr: was fat, now big. Learned being muscular doesn't keep girls interested, having muscles makes frame stronger, muscles command respect, stretch before lifting.
Getting a lot of PM's about the workout plan and meal plan. Copy paste of comment I made:
Shoutout to @Juggerknot99. Check him out on instagram. Good friend of mine is responsible for this workout plan.
Meal plan, I gotta be honest I eat what I want. I'm not into candy and sweets but I will fuck up a burger and some fries. The only thing I really pay attention to is my carb intake. If I know I'm not going to lift within a few hours after eating a lot of those, I won't eat them.
Not really helpful I know but I got you!
A friend of mine who personal trains made my brother a very in depth meal plan awhile ago, I know it can be beneficial to many.
a drop box link. My brothers goal was to bulk as cleanly as possible starting from around 165. He's about 195 now and rock solid.
Good luck make me proud.
