#TransformationTuesday Before: 15 Years Old 110lbs. After: 19 Years Old 135lbs. This was before I really started getting competitive in @crossfit and only went to class three times a week only for one hour! My main focus was sports like basketball and tennis. I wouldn't be able to lift as much as I do now or compete versus all the top level CrossFit athletes if I didn't put on the muscle. I don't worry about my weight. The only time I step on the scale is to make sure I'm gaining and not losing any! This works for me and I am happy with being strong and fit! P.S. I think my 3RM Back Squat back then was only 145lbs… #strongisbeautiful #healthybodyhealthymind @progenex
