My name is Darek and this is my story.
Being younger I didn’t like my body. I was kinda skinny (57 kg/174 cm) and really hated the way I looked. Because of that I was not confident, scared of being in crowded places and tried to avoid any situation when people could laughed at me.
Decided to change my life and build self-confidence
First I joined local gym, where I’ve been training for couple of months. Then I realized that it wasn’t for me. I didn’t really like idea of it and wanted to find something more. Then my friend told me about Calisthenics.
Decided to start workout at home with with just a single pull up bar. At that moment I had no equipment at all so I did dips between table and sofa standing in my mom’s room (she was so mad btw hahaha). First two months I was building strength and adapted my joints to new kind of movement. I put some basic skills such as handstand, muscle up, backlever and human flag. Usually I did 5 workouts a week but some weeks I did it every day (now I know that was bad idea ’cause you need rest)
However I was really into it and didn’t want to stop. Diet started to play a key role in my transformation. As a Ectomorph (a person with fast metabolism) I had problems with putting on weight. Early days I ate 1000-1500 calories per day, now I had to rapidly increase it to 3300-3800. That was a Challange for me and because of that I started to prepare my meals in a boxes and took them with me. I ate even at night, just to complete my caloric needs.
When it was too hard I launched some motivational videos on youtube and put my headphones on. Calisthenics changed my whole life. I completely changed myself for better and now I only regret that it took me so long to start it out. This is not only about a body now, but the about relationships I have, great people I meet, amazing girlfriend and positive energy everyday.
People often ask me for motivation. (How could I managed that?)
The answer is simple. I wanted to change my look to have a great friends, girlfriend, passion and simply to enjoy myself. Once I saw first results and met amazing guys on my way I just couldn’t stop reaching my goals. Obviously there were a hard days, especially when it went to diet. However, Perseverance is the key.
How I made a progress and learned skills in one year only?
Some people would not believe that I achieved that skills in one year only. As I already mentioned it was actually 3.5 months of Gym and a year of calisthenics.
You must know that everyone is different and the tempo of your progress depends of your genes, experience, dedication, workout system, nutrition and time spent on skills. I was always into sports (played football for 7 years), that’s why I’ve never want to loose.
Although I was really skinny (have never trained on weights and my muscle mass was low), it was easier for me to start. I must mention that reading number of books, articles, forums, following people with knowledge, watching videos, working out and, finally, following diet plan helped me a lot.
If you really want to learn skills you should train even couple of times day by day. However you must remember about regeneration and the rest. Want to progress the way I did and use my methods?
Try my system and transform your body. When I create workout/nutrition plan or train people I use my one year body experience and knowledge I’ve got.
The most important.
Good looking body builds self-confidence and changes the way you live. Because of lack of confidence I was afraid to say “NO” to bad things and simply followed people all the time. Now it’ changed! Take a first steps or get back if you gave up earlier. The workout and diet plan will be prepared especially and individually for You and for You only. I share all my experience from my one year body transformation.
