The pictures shows a before and after of Martyn Ford post surgery and how the actor been able to pack on the muscle within several weeks of dedicated training.
“I don’t think I’m doing to bad….. yes I was shattered and devastated when I fell ill, losing so much weight was crushing, and looking back I suffered some depression, but only way is up when you hit rock bottom, I’m still a few steps away from where I was, but a hell of a way in front where I started 7 wks back. No matter what life throws at you, take it one step, one breathe, one day at a time. Small little goals will eventually add up to huge milestones.
Success doesn’t happen overnight, but a drive to succeed day, after day, after day. Until eventually you start to get somewhere. Focus on your dreams and never stop believing”
