“What you see is my 11 year transformation. During that time I have made every possible mistake in the gym to learn on my own and not ask for advice – a terribly stupid mistake. Always seek advice, look for the right partner and be straightforward with your goals. This will save you a lot of time and injury, and allow you to make your transformation in a significantly shorter period of time!” he writes.
