How Did You Get Started?

I started seriously in October, 2005. I had gained some weight and was smoking. I needed to get into the gym to put my energies elsewhere. I quit cold turkey and hit the gym. I did compete in 1986 before I was married or had my two children. I was always athletic throughout my life but other responsibilities always took priority.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

What I feel has worked best is constant change - I usually change my workouts every 6 weeks or so. As long as you are out of your comfort zone I feel you will advance.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I find a carb cycling diet works best. I will do 3 days low carbs and one day high. It keeps the metabolic rate at a constant. I use this when I want to lean down... otherwise a balanced carb/protein/fat split 40/40/20 10% above my BMR level to promote muscle growth

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I love Xtend. I drink it with all my workouts.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?
