How Did You Get Started?
I got started when I saw Terminator 2 with a totally ripped Linda Hamilton and of course Arnold. I started lifting the very next day and my love has grown ever since.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
I change my workout plan frequently so I won't adapt to it. Most recently I split it into 5 workouts--legs w/calves, shoulders w/rear delts, back, chest, and Bi's w/Tri's. I train 2 or 3 days on, 1 off. I pay attention to my body and if I need more rest I'll make sure I get it. My tendency is to overtrain so I've started viewing rest as an essential part of my training. I get better results because of this.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I eat 6-7 times per day, at least 1 gallon of water/day, mostly clean w/some cheating off season! But the majority of my diet is the usual staples-chicken breast, egg whites, fish, turkey, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, fruit, veggies. I really like recovery shakes right after training with a 2 or 3:1 carb to protein ratio.
Prepping for my competition in June, for the last six weeks I dropped the carbs to zero for 4-7 days then carb loaded for a day, then back to zero. Since this was my first show I didn't know what would work best for me but I had very good results from this. I'll take what I learned from that experience and improve on it for the next competition.
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
I take supplements but rely more on the food for gains.
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love bodybuilding for so many reasons: it's a sport and an art. I love the look, the challenge of it, sculpting my body like creating a statue. It is such a metaphor for overcoming obstacles and becoming greater because of it--a significant theme in my life. It makes me a better person, more patient, it teaches me about myself. Being driven to always push myself, to be better than the last time, it's made me dig deep to get in touch with a limitless source of power within me. I love posing, it's such an art in itself, total self expression.
I'm a pianist and writer so this creative aspect appealed to me right away. Bodybuilding is paradoxical in many ways but that works for me too, since I am continually striving for balance in my life and usually do so by first going to extremes. You have to be selfish to be a bodybuilder, but going through all the pains to get where I want to be, I have actually become more and more selfless.
It's given me confidence but I always see what needs to be improved. It takes insane drive to be in the sport, but more than anything it takes a lot of heart to stick with it, to continually push to be greater, to never be satisfied. I've learned to turn my weaknesses into strengths, in bodybuilding and in life.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I plan to compete next year after making necessary improvements.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
