I Was 270lbs - Now I'm A Competitive Bodybuilder | BRAND NEW ME

SUBSCRIBE to Truly: OVER the course of three years, Jonny Valdez, 20, from Folsom, California, went from being known as the ‘chubbier’ friend in his group to placing fifth in a bodybuilding competition. At the age of 17, Jonny weighed 270lbs and was on the verge of not graduating high school after spending most days watching television, playing video games and eating. But Jonny was determined to transform his life and lost 120lbs through healthier habits and hitting the gym. Jonny said: “I'm satisfied knowing that I'm building the body of my dreams and I'm happy with everything right now.” With the support of his friend Gabe, Jonny has gone from strength to strength in his pursuit of becoming a pro-bodybuilder. Today he will be attempting a PR of 400lbs deadlift... Will he succeed?
