How Did You Get Started?

I always was involved in dance growing up and always enjoyed being active. Two years ago I started training with a power lifter then a bodybuilder. I loved the results that I received from working out and sought out the help of Joe Klemczewski, PHD who has coached and peaked many of the top natural bodybuilders and figure competitors. I have been lifting hard and heavy for the last two years. Needless to say, I am hooked.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Right now I am following an NLP program so I alternate between strength/volume workouts.

TERMS YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW
Trisets - Three exercises are performed consecutively without any rest.
Superset - Two exercises are performed consecutively without any rest.
Failure - That point in an exercise at which you have so fully fatigued your working muscles that they can no longer complete an additional repetition of a movement with strict biomechanics.
Pyramids - Increasing the weight with each new set while decreasing the number of reps. The weight is then reduced and the reps increased.
Drop Sets - Also known as strip sets, drop sets involve the immediate reduction of weight between sets with no rest. This will thoroughly burn out a muscle.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love the euphoric high that it gives me. Not only do you see wonderful results in the mirror, you feel empowered. If I make a great gain in the gym, that success pushes me harder during my next workout. Fitness has also helped my everyday thought process. If I can be dedicated the way I am in the gym and watching my diet pre-contest, than I can do anything! I also love it when the guys in the gym jaws drop when they see how much I can lift.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I want to step on stage at the next show in my hometown and pick up my pro card. I would love to write for a fitness magazine or website and do some fitness modeling. Most of all, I want to be a motivator to others.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Find a great group of people to surround yourself with. I have a great support group though training partners and the friends I have made through Team Klemczewski. Also, stay away from peanut butter precontest, it's like crack (but you already know that don't you).

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Mary Lado and Monica Brant.
