Hello new followers from @sportscenter ! The picture going around was from 2017 so I thought something more recent was needed. A little bit about my journey, I used to weigh 380lbs in June of 2016 and got down to 210lbs by February of 2017! The mamba mentality gave me a road map on how to stay consistent and better myself I put some of the weight back on and got back up to 256, but since March I’ve lost 54lbs and I’m now down to 202lbs! You have to believe you can do it! I created this account to help others who were like myself and wanted tips. I have already posted some exercises, stretches, and a meal to get you started on your journey. I’ve also answered some common questions in my highlights. I’ve created a twitch so I think it’s time I start doing some live workouts👀👀.
Huerta embraced the ‘Mamba mentality’, the thinking by which Bryant was governed. “When her Achilles tendon ruptured she thought about giving up everything. So I thought about losing 50 kilos in the same way… All I can do is work day to day. The ‘Mamba mentality’ try to improve yourself “, he reflects in an interview to ‘Today’.
He began by changing the feeding, which combined with a iron will and a lot of physical exercise it gave results. It started small, and almost without realizing it, the change occurred. “I set small challenges that I was overcoming one by one to achieve something bigger. I would not have achieved it if I had not realized his example,” he analyzes about the figure of Bryant. “The way he looked at things was by saying ‘I want to be the best.’ That is the mentality that I had to adopt to lose weight: I want to be the best in losing weight “, highlights the Californian.
The United States suffers a real overweight epidemic and it is a serious health problem. It is estimated that half of the country’s inhabitants will suffer obesity in 10 years if they do not radically change their habits, according to a study from the ‘New England Journal of Medicine’.
Huerta now wants to convert himself in an inspiration And that is why, since his story became popular, he has started sharing videos of his own workouts.

For those asking for workouts I do now. Here’s a typical leg day for me(do not try this if your body is not ready.) I try to do each exercise in 3-4 sets with 10-12 reps a set. For the slam ball exercise I slam three times and then move latterly. Enjoy the royalty free music! #huertaweightgo #huertaweightgoals #everyday
