How Did You Get Started?

I started because someone I dated at the time inspired me to workout and to really go out and go for my goals or at least set some. They inspired me so much that it grew and I started entering contests and then it carried over into modeling. Now I'm modeling full time. Funny how you can cross a path or someone's path and if you take the right one it can change your life because I never looked at a weight less than 3 years ago.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I work out with very heavy weights, like the guys. I also use a lot of free-weights. I like to do a 3 day on with one day off split routine or sometimes change it up with a 2 day on one day off split routine. I break my body parts into a Leg day, Chest day, Tri, Bi, Shoulder day, and Back day. As a guide I try to do reps around 8 - 12 and around 3 sets for each exercise. I only work out about 40 minutes - 1 hour. Anything over 1 hour is bad and wears you down and is counterproductive. Also forget the aerobics your body adepts to them and eventually they don't work. Just break your body parts into 4 groups and do 1 part each day. I just keep rotating this over & over.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I try to eat every 3 hours after I work out. Right when I work out I eat 9 egg whites with oatmeal. Rest of the day every three hours I eat at least 40 grams of protein with 40 grams of carbs which would be either Whey Protein with oatmeal at one sitting or meals like lean steaks, fish, chicken with oatmeal for my carbs. I guess I eat a lot of Oatmeal because it's about the only carb that the body does not store as fat, plus it breaks down slow so it keeps you full so your not hungry all the time.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I'm pretty much natural so I would have to say just drink your Whey Protein. Sometimes if I'm really hungry I will drink Whey Protein just after 2 hours of eating a meal.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It does so much for you. Makes you look & feel younger. Even my face thinned out which does a lot for looks. Your strength makes you feel like 18, and sex drive is great. You have a lot of energy. You wouldn't believe what I looked like 3 years ago! I looked terrible. I used to be a junk food junkie eating a box a dots a day for energy. Funny, but candy actually causes you to loose energy. Now I haven't eaten any candy in 2 years.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am trying to get a name and get into as many magazines as possible to make said name for myself. I also broke some records at where I have 200 PICS there, I'm model # 92156. I had the most views in August & September out of 100,000 models at Onemodelplace. I have a web site also. I want to try to win as many contests and shoot in as many magazines where someone hopefully will spot me and give me a contract.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Just keep it up and don't stop. The week where you feel tired at least do light workouts instead of doing nothing. Also very important, LIFT VERY HEAVY WEIGHTS LIKE THE GUYS DO. No, you won't look like a guy if you do that because those are steroid girls. A woman's body can only get so big and cut up. Try to lift free weights and as a guide do as much weight as you can so you can barely get that 10th rep up.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I love Monica Brant. She is around the same height and build as me. She is both very muscular but very feminine and sexy all at the same time. I love the way she poses. Corey Everyone & Amy Fadli. Trish Stratus. I have an older tape I watch with Amy Fadli on it when she was at her prime and when she walked on stage in her bikini at the contest she looked almost perfect.

For guys I like Schwarzenegger, I watch Rocky for motivation so Sylvester Stallone, Mike O'hearn, and Scott Markey. I guess I like the guys who are ripped and muscular but don't look like balloons or that they’re on steroids.
