The journey from a thin, underweight physique to a well-built body is challenging, but not impossible. Reddit user 8173201111, a 19-year-old male, shares his journey from 125lbs to 145lbs in just three months. In this article, we'll dive into his weight gain transformation and explore his workout routine and eating habits.

The Transformation Journey

8173201111 had close to no physical activity before his weight gain journey. He picked up a job at FedEx and started working out six days a week. While he didn't have a strict diet plan, he started consuming more calories and protein. When he felt he didn't get enough protein from his regular diet, he took whey protein. Lack of sleep was the most challenging part of his journey.

The Workout Routine

8173201111 follows a weekly routine that consists of bench press, decline bench, dumbbell press, flyes, tricep extensions, skull crushers, pull-ups, preacher curls, barbell rows, hammer curls, lat pulldowns, ab leg raises, squats, leg press, hamstring curls, leg extensions, seated calf raises, standing calf raises, dumbbell overhead press, barbell overhead press, lateral raises, shrugs, front delt raises, incline bench, and deadlifts.

Starting Out

8173201111 advises that starting out light is crucial. Check your ego at the door, start slow, and don't burn yourself out. Rather than pushing yourself too hard, start by stabilizing a healthy caloric surplus diet and practice with basic exercises like pushups and situps before moving to weightlifting. Weightlifting might seem challenging, but consistent timing and focusing on a light workout routine will lead to better results.


8173201111's journey from 125lbs to 145lbs in three months is an inspiring achievement. His discipline and consistency in following a workout routine and consuming a sufficient amount of protein are commendable. To gain weight, one needs to consume more calories than they burn and focus on weightlifting, which 8173201111 has proved. So, what are you waiting for? Try it out yourself, check your ego at the door, and take on this journey of weight gain transformation.
