Hey Boys and Girls! Welcome, and thank you for checking out my profile. Lets talk about Kalibre Fitness!
I’m Kal (nice to E-Meet you!). I am an ex-skinny guy who started Kalibre Fitness to document my journey in building lean muscle mass.
Building muscle is hard. Especially if you have been endowed with the notorious “skinny gene” like me. And I know many people will be able to resonate with this perpetual problem.
This is why I created Kalibre Fitness- to share my experience and research into building muscle as a “skinny guy”.
Weight training changed my life, and I know it also change yours.
About Kalibre Fitness: Kal’s Story
As a skinny 125 pound Asian guy growing up in Basingstoke UK, I had my own fair share of insecurities.
In particular, every other guy seemed more muscular than me. They were stronger than me. They had more confidence than me.
Now, some of the Basingstoke residents (not all!) aren’t the nicest of folks. As a kid, being picked on was not uncommon. And I’m guessing my skinny physique had some part to do with that!
And you know the worst thing?
No matter how many bicep curls I performed in the garage, my biceps just would not grow. Correction- my body just would not grow!
This is before weight training transformed my life. I started with basic research. And this progressed into extensive research on the mechanisms driving muscle development.
After countless hours fact-finding, I was ready to make changes. I adjusted my diet and began dedicating serious time to the weight room.
Now fast forward 15 or so years- through many failed workout and diet plans- I am now weighing in at 170 pounds with 15% body fat.
Thats almost 40 pounds of pure lean muscle gained!
My transformation has given me new-found confidence. Furthermore, it has set me on a path to achieve more goals!
These include entering competitive bodybuilding and completing my NASM Personal Trainer Certification.
