At his school age, Abhinav was a weak, insecure, and introverted person by nature. He tried making friends but ended up getting himself bullied.

He was a student who frequently got bullied by his classmates for his looks and personality. Abhinav was very fed up with this and wanted to get rid of this. He even prayed to Goddess Durga at times!

One day his mother bought a pair of dumbbells from somewhere. She called Abhinav to come out and see what it is.

She said, “Here, Abhinav, I bought something for you!”

“What’s this?”

“These are called Dumbbells!”

“What am I supposed to do with it?”

“You will soon figure it out by yourself!”

The First bicep-curl rep that made his life

Abhinav, the teenaged boy, used to watch Arnold Schwarzenegger on Television. He remembered how the latter practiced various exercises using dumbbells. So he tried imitating the great him by performing some bicep curls in his wrong and immature way.

Although his method wasn’t correct, he did feel the pump in his bicep muscle. He successfully performed six repetitions that day. After fifteen minutes, when he saw his arms in the mirror, he was amazed. He shouted aloud, “Oh my God!” in excitement.

But why?

Well, he saw a vein pop up on his arms that made him scream in excitement. He never saw such a thing in his body. Which is why he got extremely surprised.

No pain, No gain!

The next day when he woke up, he felt extreme pain in his arms. It was a dreadful one that Abhinav had never experienced in his life. He rushed towards his mother and asked if he was alright or would have to get a consultation from the doctor.

“Mom, am I alright? Please answer me, Mom. Mom? Will I get rid of this pain soon?” He asked his mother in a mixed feeling of curiosity and fear.

“Yes, Abhinav. Don’t worry, it’s natural. It is the outcome of lactic acid in your body. Your body is healing. You will be alright within one or two days!”

Mom, are you serious? An Acid in my body? Will not my organs get burned inside?

“Oh no, Abhinav!” amusingly replied the mother.

“It’s not a dangerous acid. It is just a natural one which your body produces for carrying out various functions.”

“Okay, Mom,” said Abhinav in a confused manner.

Abhinav’s mother was a Biology teacher by profession, that is why she had good knowledge about the body.

However, Abhinav did not know much about the body and its mechanism, but he somehow continued to perform the exercises daily in his unprofessional way.

Consistency and Addiction of Abhinav for workouts

He was addicted to it. Within a month, he gained good muscle mass. A classmate approached him and said, “Hey Abhinav? Are you going to the gym these days? Your arms look big!”

Abhinav immediately said, “No! No! NO! Who told this to you? I am not going to any gym.”

With time, things got changed. The Abhinav who was once a weak, and introverted person who frequently got bullied, now became a very strong and confident personality.

After a few months, Abhinav joined a nearby gym and went there for several years. His body had become flexible, and muscular in no time. His personality became like that of a fitness model. He gained lots of confidence.

He thought, if he doesn’t receive any good news within a week, he will pack his bags and take the first train to his hometown after seven days.

On the same evening, he gets a call. It was for an invite to an audition held at a distance from his residence in Delhi. Abhinav decided to give himself the last chance.
