How Did You Get Started?
Throughout my entire life, I wanted to workout and "get big". I was never a "jock". (The only sport that I had participated in was grade school basketball.) I didn't know anyone who trained and I was too intimidated to go into a gym by myself. Then 2 Â½ years ago, I hired an employee who talked me into working out with him and his training partner.diet that was ok, I gained some weight but not much. Then Tony asked me one day if I would be interested in working out with his brother, Josh Biros (a former Transformation of the Week winner). injury... the day after the accident and the day of surgery. I don't think that I'm any better than anyone else but my goal to eventually compete has kept me going. My dream of training is still in place and not much is going to keep me from doing just that!
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
My plan right now is for upper body only because of my injury. I'm seeing steady weight and mass gains.The plan is a 6 day on / 1 off schedule - arms, chest, shoulders, back - on a continuous rotation.
3 weeks of low rep (6-10) / high weight
- 4 exercises / session; 1 warmup for each exercise and 2 working sets 1 week of high rep (12-15) / low weight
- 4 exercises / session; 1 warmup and 3 working sets
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
Right now I'm bulking again and I'm taking 4,500 clean calories a day. Most of the carbs are taken pre/during/post workout. With my work schedule, I don't have a lot of time to prepare food. I blend my breakfast (egg protein, oatmeal, glutamine). My mid-morning and mid-afternoon meal is whey protein and Enova oil. Lunch is basically chicken breast and beans (I use hot chili beans). Then my pre workout is where I start to load the carbs - egg protein, oatmeal, carbo gain, and a banana.whey protein, carbo gain, BCAA's, and glutamine. email@example.com.
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
Whey protein for gains and BCAA's to keep the muscle.
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
Bodybuilding has changed my life. Not only has it given me confidence and a good self-image, it has led me to people that I never would have met who are now great friends. My love for bodybuilding has changed in some aspects since I began. Yes, I still enjoy the feel of pumped muscles, looking good, and feeling good. But, more importantly, it has given me a new outlook on life that I never expected.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
After much conversation with Josh, I decided to compete in April of '07. I'm not sure what the future will hold from there. I fully intend to continue bodybuilding and my only regret is that I didn't start much sooner. I think I have some pretty good genetics that would have given me a chance at taking this to a much higher level if I had started sooner.
