Tyler is sporting some serious lean muscle in the second picture.
Tyler discusses his struggles with body image and other topics in his caption.
“I’ve hated my ectomorph body my entire life. I’ve always been referred to as “the scrawny dude” and I was unable to put on weight, the man wrote.
“I wouldn’t even take my shirt off because I always thought I looked sickly skinny and I hated my bony chest so much that I used to swim with my shirt on,” the Teen Mom OG star continued.
So even though I still have a lot of work to do, I’m trying to enjoy all the small victories I come across along the way. I may not yet be where I want to be.
“I can’t wait for my next bulk cycle to see how much more gains I can get, because I’m just getting started, baby,” the Michigan native continued. Let’s move!
Fans were supportive in the comments.
