From 234 lbs to becoming a Bodybuilder, Emir a.k.a. Thrasler talks about his Fitness Journey!!

Today, we have the pleasure of Interviewing Emir, also known as Thrasler on social media. He is a 19-year-old Influencer from Austria who won the IFBB World Junior last year. He is inspiring his Followers all around the world.

Can you please tell us about your journey?

Well, this all started as a joke with a friend of mine. We joked about becoming Bodybuilders and how crazy it would be. Well, that thought motivated me daily, and I started to train 6 times weekly since the last 4 years.

Please share with us how it all started!

It all started because I was overweight and had 234 lbs, and my friend told me about how crazy it would be if we would get bodybuilders in 3 years, and that’s where it clicked. I started to work out, change my bad habits, and started to eat clean, and after 4 years, the hard work and dedication paid off.

What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?

At first, I had no clue how to train or which food was healthy and unhealthy. It was a long progress with trial and error. I was that kind of a guy who would workout and eat Mcdonald’s afterward. I used to eat in a surplus every day, wondering why I’m not losing any weight. After 1 year of training, I still looked the same, and I started to get help from a guy I met in the gym. He gave me some wise training tips and diet tips, which he called “MET. “
