My name is Oscar. As a kid I never thought that one day I’d be into bodybuilding. I can’t say I read flex magazines or anything, in fact prior to starting lifting I’d tried most sports and I was shocking. I couldn’t play football, tried basketball, still wasn’t good enough, tried athletics and I was even worse.
Fast forward a couple of years I was in a relationship with a girl. One day we had a disagreement which led into her trying to make me jealous. She did this by going off with someone else who was much bigger and muscular than myself. At the time I had a small ectomorph build. It felt horrible and I thought to myself, I would never ever let anyone make me feel this way again. Not when the variables are in my control anyway.
My fitness journey started right there. For a few years that was my motivation, but as I grew older I was more comfortable in my own skin and my motivation would shift. I realised bodybuilding helped me cope with delayed grief of losing my mother. I almost felt a sense of belonging and purpose instantly and it would be the one thing that occupied my mind majority of the time.
Jordan has been coaching me for the past 5 years and we are now on our 6th season together. All I can say is what a journey it’s been. I tend to have a very basic approach to everything and pride myself on hard work. I have competed for the last 5 years in different categories as the plan was always to work up till I was able to fit into a bodybuilding class and that will finally happen this year.
I aim to do PCA Manchester qualifier, class 2 bodybuilding, win that and compete at the British final. I am looking forward to keep you all updated on here about my journey towards that goal with 100% transparency.
