How Did You Get Started?

I first became interested in working out as a young kid, my older brothers and their friends use to pick on me all the time... not easy being the youngest boy in the family. I was always smaller than other kids my age but could always outlift them in the gym. I realized as a teen that I was physically different than my friends; I could bench over 300lbs as a 150lb teenager.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I stick to the same workout plan all year long. I train HEAVY all year. It might not be the best method for everyone but it works best for me. I train Mon through Sat working one body part a day.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

My diet is fairly clean all year long. The only difference between off season and contest prep is the amount of food I eat. In the off season I consume a lot more calories and some junk food every once in awhile. But come 10 weeks out before contest I am strict with no cheat meals.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

This past year since the nationals in ATL - I have been using a lot of Iron Tek products. I love their Micell Edge protein and methyl speed drinks. I am also a big fan of World Wide NOS PUMP and Carbo Rush drinks. In addition to that I also use Prolab N large 2 and Met RX RTD's.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Bodybuilding is a totally different sport than any other out there. There is really no team concept in bodybuilding. It is completely up to you to put in the hard work and dedication. If you aren't on top of your training and diet it shows.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

My next bodybuilding goal is to compete at the 2006 North American Championships in Ohio in September. I plan on competing as a heavy weight for the second time. Last year at Nationals was my first time competing in that class, I had always been a light heavy before. Hopefully ill come in hard around 220lbs and win that IFBB pro card I've been chasing for so long.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

The most important tip I could give to other bodybuilders, especially the younger guys, is to keep your head in the game. Don't let your success go to your head, stay humble and know that there is always someone out there that is training just as hard or harder than you.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

My favorite bodybuilders are in no particular order: Shaw Ray, Lee Priest, Dexter Jackson, Victor Martinez, Capreise Murray and Melvin Anthony.
