How Did You Get Started?
My transition into graduate school from medical school offered me more "free" time; therefore, I decided to challenge myself physically and set the goal of entering a figure competition.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
Both weight training and cardio are important. However, I discovered that my greatest gains were from training with heavy weights.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
In preparing for most of my competitions, I follow a high protein diet (chicken and fish) and include only complex carbs such as oatmeal, brown rice and sweet potatoes. Water is also a key ingredient, and I try to drink at least 1.5 gallons a day.
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
This is an amazing industry that takes physical fitness beyond what one gains from playing a sport. To be on stage with so many people who have the same passion for fitness as I do is an adrenaline rush that can be very addictive.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
- Earn a pro-card in figure

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
