What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I work out according to the pull push system. One day I do everything with pushing, the next with pulling and the next with legs. I also allow enough time in between to let the muscles rest and recover. I also switch routines every 3-4 months (ie., from light weights with many reps to heavy weights with lower reps). I always warm up before each workout with abs and after the workout on the bike. I also do Karate as cardio for 3 hours a week and make sure I'm always active.

Sunday: Chest/Shoulders/Triceps

Tuesday: Back/Biceps

Thursday: Legs

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What works best for me is changing the amount of calories and carbs throughout the week. This fools my metabolism and I can burn more fat. I always keep my protein high, fat low and cycle my carbs from low to high throughout the week. I believe in healthy, clean food and also include a lot of vegetables and fruit in my plan.

Most of the protein that I add to my diet is Dymatize Elite Whey and Gaspari Myofusion. I also make sure to include Dymatize BCAA powder and when I want to cut I use VPX liquid Clenbutrx or USP Labs Oxy Elite Pro. These both work very well for me.

One day out of the week:




Post Workout:

45 Minutes After Workout:




  1. 1 Scoop Of Gaspari Myofusion


Before Bedtime:

I drink around 2 gallons of water per day.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I use a plenty of protein powder. My favorites are Dymatize Elite Whey and Gaspari Myofusion. I also use a plenty of BCAA powder mainly before during and after the gym. Before I hit the gym I use around 3-5 grams of l-Arginine sometimes I use BSN NO-Xplode.
