Here’s your new interview with one of the winners from the 8th Adonis Index Transformation Contest.
Today John talks to Tommy Lacaprucia who placed 2nd in our last 12-Week Transformation contest.
Check out his transformation pictures:
Tommy isn’t even 17 years old yet, so he is by far our youngest contestant.
For only a 12 week transformation, his progress is outstanding.
Tommy admitted that growing up he was always on the chubby side and he deeply desired to get in shape. As a result, he turned to a popular TV fitness program. However, with this program he was constantly overtraining and under eating. His motivation was spot on, but the process he followed didn’t yield the results he wanted. After all, his goal was to be in shape yesterday…
No fault of his own, as this is what we all want. But during a transformation patience is key.
Sadly, Tommy ended up losing muscle mass, and became what we call “skinny fat”. To make matters worse, he even began to receive comments from his family concerned about his health and appearance.
Before doing this crazy TV finess program he at least looked good with his shirt on, but mentally, this program really screwed him up.
Thankfully, the tide turned in Tommy’s favor in January of this year when he discovered the Adonis Index system. He agrees that this was a game changer for him.
He used our regular workouts with a few booster specializations, accompanied with the Reverse Taper Diet and Pilon’s Eat Stop Eat.
Standing at a height of 5’10″ he went from 163 pounds to 144 pounds, gained muscle and lost significant amount of fat. His new look landed him a more aesthetic body shape with visible abs, just scroll up for pictures.
Keep in mind, this is only after 12 weeks, just imagine what Tommy can look like after 12 months or 12 years. It’s amazing what can happen when you find a program that works and stick to it.
Experience Cannot Be Bought
Do you remember your very first workout?
You probably felt endless amounts of pain the next few days after your workout. That’s because your body wasn’t used to the physical stress; you were probably sore for a week just from one workout.
But as you probably also remember this changed pretty quickly and in no time you could handle 3 workouts like that in a single week.
But there is one more thing we haven’t mentioned yet. Once you get over this “muscle learning curve” you can handle as many workouts as the older, more experienced guys.
Why is that?
This is partly because when you are new to weight training, you can’t use the workout in it’s full potential like somebody with let’s say with 20 years of experience.
Younger and less experienced guys just can’t generate the same amount of intensity with training.
Tommy’s solution was to was add SEVERAL boosters to the main workout module.
Sure you might get sore, but if it’s not an injury, why not suck it up, train more often and get double the gains?
This is something you might wanna consider and experiment with.
As long as you have the energy and time, there is no reason for you not to add more training volume and sessions to your regimen.

Read Tommy’s experience with Adonis Index in his own words:
I’ve been following AI since January 1, 2012 and I absolutely love everything about it!
Currently I am following the RTD and fasting twice a week. While doing so, I still eat large meals and I am always feeling satisfied, even while being in a caloric deficit. With this approach I’ve gained a tremendous amount of muscle and strength, while simultaneously losing BF.
This not only transformed my physique, but it transformed my life in many ways also! Being in high school, it’s…Continue reading here
