What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

My workouts never consist of the same exercises each time. For example if I do incline dumbbell press for one of my chest exercises, the next chest day will not include that exercise. Instead I will do incline barbell presses to change the area of my chest being worked. I try to change up what I do so my body does not get used to a certain routine.

I also try to hit my muscles from different angles on each exercise performed. I go as hard as I can on every rep I do. GO HARD or GO HOME!

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I try to drink at least one gallon of water a day to stay completely hydrated. I eat a lot of eggs, protein shakes, chicken and beef. I do not eat many carbs except oatmeal, pancakes, peanut butter, and yogurt. I usually try to eat at least 6 meals a day that have a two hour gap between them.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

No one likes to lose, so I try to bring my very best to the table each time I compete.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I want to gain Natural Professional status and hopefully catch someone's eye so I can get sponsored!

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

My tip to other bodybuilders is to be patient because bodybuilding can be a slow process and you do not want to throw in the towel too early! Also try to learn as much as you can at the gym and from other veteran bodybuilders because they have been in the game longer so they probably will share some valuable information.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Delbert Hickman, Rich Lauro, Evan Centopani, Trey Brewer.

What Features Do You Use On Bodybuilding.com?

I usually try to order the supplements I use from the Bodybuilding.com store. I also use the site to find tips that help me on my diet. Bodybuilding.com is a great tool used on my journey to the top.
