The wise C.S. Lewis was quoted saying that hardship prepares an ordinary person for an extraordinary destiny. PumpUp member @twoolf29 is certainly one of these people. After a devastating career ending injury that forced him to leave professional football, he lost a lot of mass without a personal trainer there to guide him. Now, he relies on PumpUp for support and workouts to help him recuperate that lost muscle mass and to get in better shape than ever before. With the help of the PumpUp community, Troy was inspired to adopt healthier eating habits as he gradually gained more muscle mass. He went from 182 lbs in September 2014 to around 200 lbs 4 months later. Keep him pumped! Have you ever had trouble gaining muscle mass? Experienced a hardship that you couldn't have ever foreseen? Comment below! We'd love to hear your thoughts!
