Let’s face it. We all need motivation, and the best and easiest way to find it is online. But, what usually happens get’s you unmotivated instead of making you work harder. Why is that so? Well, let’s get a little bit more into it.
So, you google fat to fit transformations and you get this picture. You’re like, OMFG this guy did an amazing job. Look at him, he managed to get super ripped in 6 weeks. Well, did he really?
Let’s begin with the first picture. He is no beginner there, even though he’s fat. He has a good amount of muscle under that belly, and if you’re a beginner, you DON”T. So, even if you manage to get yourself to a one digit body fat percentage, (you can’t do it in 6 weeks – SORRY), you are still not going to look like him.
If you dig a little bit more into it, you’ll realize that he played with the photo as well. The first one is just a normal picture you would take yourself, and in the second one, someone invested some effort so he can look the way he does.
Let’s put aside the possibility of him using steroids because we can’t prove that he does or that he doesn’t.
As the last part of the puzzle, what happens is that they usually would manipulate the time needed to make this transformations, do it in 12 weeks and tell you it is in 6 weeks to make it sound as impressive as possible.
So, to summarize, you have someone who worked out for years, added some fat on top of all the muscle he build over the years, and now he makes a video going from “fat” to fit in 6 weeks, by going on a cut for probably 12 weeks, just for the purpose to sell you some stupid product or workout plan that he never used in his life and most certainly didn’t use to get those results.
Alright now, let’s take a look at this second example.
So, he claims he did this in 12 weeks, and went 29% of body fat down. Come on now, who believes that? But this video has over 3 million views on YouTube, and that’s something that worries me. People watch this videos, get motivated to make their transformation, but they have unrealistic goals and of course, fail.
Alright now, if you’re a beginner, what are the realistic results you can expect? How good of a transformation can you achieve, following good nutrition plan and working hard at the gym?
This is ME, on day one and day 90. Before day one, I had no significant muscle gains, no good eating habits, I did not go to the gym at all. The only thing I had was a couple of attempts to be serious about training, but I never did it. So, if you’re starting and you wanna know where you can REALISTICALLY GET in 90 days, this is it.
