TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY with Bodybuilding.com Ambassador @monicajane14
Transformations are not always weight loss👏 We understand that everyone has different goals and muscle gain + weight gain are also key parts of someones journey! It is equally amazing to gain strength, muscle, and weight as it is to lose weight. Here is Monica's story!
"I know most people’s transformations involve losing weight. However, mine is about gaining. I started weight lifting when I was a sophomore in High School, and always played sports. I was always considered athletic and fit. I was dedicated to eating healthy, but always went about it the wrong way. I didn’t eat enough. Fast forward to college, I was afraid of gaining that “freshman 15” people talk about. So I joined a gym as soon as I moved. I hit the gym 5 days a week my freshmen and sophomore years, but constantly at about a weight of 120, eating 1,000-1,200 calories a day which wasn’t even close enough for my height and weight. Even when I went for MEPS to join the Air Force I was considered under weight and was considered a “risk” at Basic Military Training. I found Bodybuilding.com through some friends in the Air Force and started reading articles on exercise and nutrition. Shortly after, I began using their supplements and used their online calculators to find my BMR. Now here I am, 2 years later, eating plenty of food (currently maintaining at 1800 calories), counting macros and meal prepping. I could’ve never made it this far without the knowledge of Bodybuilding.com’s articles and exercise database as well as their supplements which I still use today.
