In 2010 when I first started weightlifting, I had no idea what I was doing. I was able to pick up a few things here and there about what exercises I should be doing and what foods I should be eating. However, a lot of it just turned out to be a bunch of “broscience,” or, in other words, misconceptions and questionable information about proper diet and exercise. Fortunately, I was able to meet Max who possessed extensive knowledge, and insightful tips and tools to help dispel some of the broscience, and get me closer to achieving my fitness goals. In 2013 I took it upon myself to abide by a diet plan that Max had helped me create, and followed him in an exercise routine on a regular basis. Both the diet and exercise routine were challenging; however, they were tailored to fit my lifestyle in such a way that allowed for success. Working with Max definitely helped get me closer to achieving my fitness goals, which includes one day stepping on stage for a bodybuilding competition.
