How Did You Get Swole?

Did you put on some muscle? Tell us all about it.

If you've put on muscle, we want to hear how you did it.

Maybe you started working out.

Like you joined a gym or hired a trainer (or both!).

Or you were already working out but you changed up your fitness routine.

Like you cut down on cardio and ramped up your lifting routine. Or you started doing CrossFit. Or you discovered free weights.

And maybe you also tweaked your diet a bit.

Like you starting eating a lot more or changed up the way you time your meals. Or you ramped up your protein.

Maybe it happened kinda by accident; you just started gradually lifting heavier and heavier over time.

And then one day you went to lift something and you realized "Whoa, I am basically Superman."

Or maybe you set out to gain a ton of muscle.

Like for a competition or just for fun.

Tell us: How did you go about getting stronger?

Whether you got a bit stronger or got mega swole, or are somewhere in between, we want to hear about it. We want to know how you went about it — including changes to your fitness, diet, recovery, sleep, and any other lifestyle factors. The more details you share (include photos, how much weight/muscle you gained, etc.!) the more likely it is we’ll profile you in a future post. And if you’d like to nominate a friend or loved one, we want to hear that, too!

Email healthstories@buzzfeed.com with your story for a chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed post.
