How I Gained 23 Pounds of Lean Muscle in Just 90 Days! “I Told U So” By: Blake Mallen-Part #2

Were there immediate results? 

Yes, I started building muscle in the first couple weeks. But, be prepared to stick with your plan. I actually began going backwards (losing weight!) just a few weeks into the Challenge—and in a 90 Day Challenge, that wasn’t good. I got frustrated for a minute. But setbacks are bound to happen. Stay focused on the goal. Stick to your strategy, and never quit. I just kept thinking, “This is possible.” And, all the support I was getting from those who I had told about my Challenge really fueled me to keep going. 

Hulk Hogan gives me a PAIN FACTOR! 

Anytime you enter a Challenge, your intentional outcome should be success. And, although nice words and support can fuel your desire, sometimes your biggest motivators can come in rare forms. 

“You set your goal,” he said. “Now if you don’t get there, we need to attach a pain factor.” 

Those words came from Hulk Hogan. Yep. If I didn’t gain more than 20 pounds of lean muscle mass in 90 days, Hulk and Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake were going to shave my head! And, yes, this deal was sealed with a handshake. Sometimes adding a layer of serious accountability is what it takes to keep you on track. And no I’m not making this up. Here is how the conversation went → Hulk Hogan is going to shave my head? 

Go Public With Your Challenge Goal 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “It’s amazing what happens when you go public with your Challenge Goal.” Tell the world what you’re going to do. Show them along the way what you’re doing. Don’t wait until you’re done. Show the world your journey—because big Challenges are completed one step at a time. It’s a daily process. This is almost as critical as the diet and exercise. Going public elicits people’s support, energy, and feedback. It fuels you every single day and there’s nothing more powerful than positive feedback. 

My 90 Day Challenge Results 

Day 1: 131 pounds (110 lean muscle mass) Day 90: 153 pounds (133 lean muscle mass) Final Result: 23lbs of Lean Muscle Chest: +5 inches Quads: +1.5 inches Biceps: +1.25 inches 

Flex Baby, Flex! 

Figured I worked so hard to put on the weight, might as well get some good photos! I’m pretty used to being in front of a camera by now… but not with my shirt off! I asked my friend Lindsay Messina, a nationally recognized fitness model and a top Body by Vi Challenge Promoter to help me out with a shoot. 

Of course, there’s always going to be haters and naysayers out there. They’ll tell you, you cant. They’ll call you crazy. They’ll say it’s not possible. And they’ll say all these negative things because, deep down, they don’t believe they could do it. But that doesn’t mean you cant. At the end of the day it comes down to belief. Will you believe what the haters tell you, or what you tell yourself? I do believe that everyone needs a hater or two—they’re valuable. They come into your life to test you. They’re the people that can become your “action motivator” on the days you want to give up. They’re the people that you can look forward to knowing after you’ve completed your Challenge, because without ever saying a word, you’ll know, that they know, “It is possible.” And, it didn’t matter what they said, or how much they discouraged you, or how much they hated the fact that you achieved your goals. You did it. 

And, to that friend of mine who said, “Gaining 20 pounds of lean muscle in 90 days was physically impossible,” Well, then, I guess, “I defy physics.”
