What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I have experienced the best gains using a four day split. It consists of two days for upper body and two days lower body. I like the fact that there is plenty of time for recovery. Every few weeks I change things up and train each body part on its own day during the course of a week. The following program was what I used this off season.

dot Day 1: Quads, Hams & Calves dot

dot Day 2: Chest, Deltoids & Triceps dot

dot Day 3: Quads, Hams & Calves dot

dot Day 4: Back & Biceps dot

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

During the past few years of dieting I have tried several different dieting methods in an attempt to strip body fat and maintain muscle. What I have found that works best for me is a long diet, usually around 20 weeks. I have found that lower carbohydrate diets do not work for me. I become very sluggish and my intensity in the gym diminishes. What I am currently eating is as follows.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I really like Waxy Maize in the off season. I also like Beta-Alanine, Creatine and Glutamine.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I get to compete against myself on a daily basis. It is the only sport that all of your success is determined by your discipline and work ethic. It also requires a lifestyle that is not normal to most people.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I will be competing on May 31st 2008 in the USBF Plattsburgh Pro-Am. I would like to further knowledge myself about training and nutrition and gain a sponsor. I also want to compete in a WNBF show next year.
