How Did You Get Started?

I was dating a fitness/figure competitor in '07. She convinced me to see how well I could do. I competed in the Steel City Bodybuilding Championships in Pueblo, CO, and took 1st place novice, 1st place Lightweight and 2nd place Men's Masters. I was hooked. In 2007 I also entered the Mid USA BB Championship in Albuquerque, N.M. and again placed 1st in Lightweight and 3rd Men's Masters.

Then I entered the CO State Bodybuilding Championships and placed 1st in Lightweight and 2nd Men's Masters. I didn't compete in '08 due to two knee injuries. I returned to the stage in '09 at the Steel City Bodybuilding Championships and placed 1st in Lightweight and a 1st in Men's Masters 45 and over. My latest accomplishment is placing 2nd Lightweight and 1st in Masters 45 and over. That's my bodybuilding career in a nutshell...

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

TERMS YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW
Failure - That point in an exercise at which you have so fully fatigued your working muscles that they can no longer complete an additional repetition of a movement with strict biomechanics. You should always take your post-warm-up sets at least to the point of momentary muscular failure, and frequently past that point.
Drop Sets - Also known as strip sets, drop sets involve the immediate reduction of weight between sets with no rest. This will thoroughly burn out a muscle.
