A young bodybuilder who became famous after crushing weights as a 15-year-old says “exercising saved his life” after years of bullying.

Tristyn Lee became famous after sharing videos of himself online where he showed off his football skills in hopes of catching the scouts’ attention.

His football dreams did not come true, but he caught the eyes of thousands of people on the net who noticed his cracked physique at such a young age.

In the five years that have passed since he was first noticed, Lee has amassed an army of more than two million followers on Instagram.

And the American is now almost unrecognizable from what he looked like when he first entered the public eye, after focusing on full-time bodybuilding.

Lee is more torn than ever, with huge bulging muscles covering all parts of his body.

He has also gained quite a few kudos in the bodybuilding world, after putting up training programs featuring famous faces like Larry Wheels, Bradley Martyn and Simeon Panda.

Now explaining his transformation, Lee says training has changed his life after being bullied in his youth over being shorter than others his age, leading him to struggle with anxiety and depression.

“I had no escape, and then I found bodybuilding,” he said.

“It’s not about the shirtless mirror selfies. It’s about the times when dumbbells have your back when literally no one else does.

“No matter if you are bullied or beaten at school, the gym is always there, and that was what kept me alive, one representative at a time.”

In addition to the work he puts into the gym, Lee credits that he has not eaten sugar for three years and followed a high-protein keto diet, like the secrets behind his ruined physique.

The American says he follows the diet closely and never eats cheat meals while making sure he gets to the gym at least twice a day.

Although he admits that it is difficult to maintain such a strict fitness and nutrition regime, he wants his own experience to help others who suffer from their body image.

“This is a message to anyone considering starting their fitness journey. Be willing to take hits, take criticism and fall down many many times,” he added.
