How Did You Get Started?

I start at 38 years old after operation of ball gladder that put my physical condition to weak and skinny bodyweight of 59 kilograms! When I was young I had no access to weights so after Rocky movie I started to run in the morning before go to school and did push ups and chin ups everyday.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I do three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) A, B, A schedule changing set/rep every two weeks from 4 sets of 10 to 10 sets of 4. When I want to see my six pack, I plan an average period of one-two months where I run every morning 30 minutes before breakfast at pace of not more than 130 BPM.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Right nutrition was the key to my best results, but it's very difficult to stay focused...I like spaghetti carbonara! I have tried all the diets particularly all high protein-low carb-high fat ones. They are all good but only for a short period and if it's the first time you do. I think the best all around diet is a fitness balanced with a pattern 50% carbs 30% protein and 20% fat.

This is my diet:

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

With bodybuilding I obtained, or nearly obtained, the body of my dreams. So what is better than a thing that could help you realize your desire?

I remember when I was skinny and tired; I never want to feel like that! Now at 48 years old I am in better shape than most of the people my age and better than a great portion of younger people. I think this is great and for me it is an easy motivation.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

Believing in myself! From my parents to my friends nobody helped me on reaching my actual body.
