Change your body.  Do not listen to those who say that you can only put on serious weight in the first year after you start working out.  Don’t listen to those who say you will make the most gains within 5 years.  You can be a late bloomer to the weights room and make good gains.  Sure, you probably won’t become a world-competitive powerlifter, but over time the changes will be worth it.


So what can you expect as a late-comer in your late twenties onwards?


Man changes body in 5 years

If this guy can do it, so can you.

Check out all the photos over 5 years here.  Do you really think this guy’s attitude has remained the same?


Strength.  You will be surprised at the strength that comes and the ways you can use it.  You will use your new-found strength for everything, and it will feel immensely satisfying using the muscles you recently discovered on something useful.  If it is difficult, do it.  Dig a hole, move some rocks, shift a refrigerator.


Mass.  You will get larger in all the right ways, as long as your diet is good.  Variety in food is for metrosexuals and chicks.  You don’t need it.  Keep it simple with meat, eggs, vegetables, rice and pasta and low/no sugar.  Men and women respect men with healthy, large bodies.  Men, because they can appreciate the work that goes into it, and girls, because they want to bear your strong healthy babies.


Attitude.  If you have been a pissant all your life you will find remarkable changes over the coming years.  Your outlook will become more positive, less victimised.  You will not balk at painful choices.  You will find it easier to make decisions.  You will become more assertive (and possibly aggressive) in all your relationships.  Other men will not make you fearful.  You will find it much easier to attract both men and women for friendly, sexual and professional relationships.  You will be listened to more readily.  Your sex drive will increase.  Your ability to get want you want will improve.  You will be more direct in conversation, and will mitigate your comments less and less.

You will begin to appreciate the other men in your life in a new light, and begin to take less shit from women.  You will become more self-supporting and less reliant.  You will identify less with the victims in movies and more with the aggressor/predator/hero.  You will stop wading around in the muck of your useless life and will finally find goals to hit. You will enjoy responsibility and accountability.  You will look for difficult things to do, and do them.  You will learn the value of focus.  You will learn persistence.  You will learn that baby steps will get you there faster than no steps.  You will learn that thinking long-term makes short term pain bearable.  You will realise that one shitty/lazy/beat-yourself-up-cos-you’re-a-faggot workout will not be remembered in the long term, and thus is not worth getting worried about.

You will see that change takes time, and the more drastic the change you want, the longer you have to wait.  You will discover that a five to ten year post adolescent journey to manhood is better than never fucking getting there, ever.   In short, you will grow as a man.  In fact, you will become a man.

Go work the fuck out.
