  • I usually do an advanced technique on the last set of each exercise, such as drop sets, partials, etc.
  • Off Friday and Sunday.
  • Cardio Done on 3-4 days of the week for 30-45 minutes @ moderate intensity (65% max heart rate) after weight training session.
  • I usually add 2 to 3 interval sessions for 20-30 minutes @ moderate/high intensity (65% max heart rate for 1 minute followed by 85% max heart rate for 30 seconds) on off days from weight training.
  • Abs done 2 to 3 days per week (usually on interval days).

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I am usually cycling my nutrition plan based on my goals. As for maintenance, I eat around 18 kcals/lb of body weightt, consisting of 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates, and 20% fats. This, of course, is divided into 6 to 7 meals every 2 to 3 hours. As for dieting/competition, I will drop to around 15 kcals/lb of body weight, consisting of 45% protein, 30% fats, and 25% carbohydrates.

I will, then, adjust based upon progress. As for weight gain/mass, I eat around 21 kcals/lb of body weight, consisting of 50% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 20% fats. For me, the wild card is the carbohydrates, as I tend to respond pretty dramatically (both positively and negatively to carbs). So, based on my goals, carb consumption changes accordingly.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Arginine based products, BCAAs, and Whey/Casein protein.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It gives me the personal challenge to see how much I can get out of myself, both aesthetically and from a fitness standpoint. Plus, as a personal trainer, it gives me the competence to teach and educate my clients.
