How Did You Get Started?

As a lifetime athlete, I played soccer and softball growing up. Between fishing seasons in Alaska I would come home to Washington and train. After a short time weight training, a lot of my friends convinced me that I had the potential to step on stage. I hesitantly agreed and placed fifth in my first show. Once getting that first timer stage experience over with I knew I had to try again and come in even better the next time. I came out the following year and won three straight shows!

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I tend to do more than I need to. I enjoy going as heavy as possible with as high intensity as possible. I am in the gym working with weights at least five days a week, cardio for six.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I try to stay as lean as I can in the off season, my physique responds best for me this way. A sample day in my off season:

    Meal 1
    5 egg whites
    1 Whole Wheat tortilla w/ salsa

Meal 2
Protein shake

Meal 3
5 0z. lean protein in salad
1/2 cup cooked brown rice

Meal 4
same as meal 3

Meal 5
5 oz. lean protein
vegetables (zucchini is a favorite)

I also throw in a good measure of almonds and keep my fluids high throughout the day to curb the cravings. Off season, I will enjoy occasional cheat meals but eliminate them as soon as I am focused towards a show.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Basically all of the modern staples. Whey protein, a good solid vitamin and some pre-workout arginine seem to work the best for me.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

You only have one body, why not build it, love it and take care of it. If you do, you're body will take care of you the rest of the way.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I hope to find myself once again on a National level stage. I competed at the USA's in 2006 and found out what it takes to do a REAL show. A higher level of competition combined with a professional attitude by everyone involved really stoked my competitive fire.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

No matter where you go or what you do, always make sure you remember who you are and where you started from. This all should remain fun and never take precedence over what is truly meaningful in your life.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Jenny Lynn, Monica Brant, Dave Henry to name a few
