How Did You Get Started?

I started bodybuilding to add size and strength for a more competitive edge as a martial artist. I quickly became addicted to the changes of lifestyle and my physique. I was then hooked and everything else was second or discontinued all together. Actually competing came with much support and motivation from my wife Chanda and promoter Derek Snelson.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

My workouts change every six weeks. Four on three off, three on four off. Next six weeks would be two on one off, one on two off. Two bodyparts a day except for legs, their annihilation deserves it's own day.

Why do I love bodybuilding? Various things keep me drawn to the sport: the obvious change in physique and physical stature, physical strength, ability and athleticism, and the Type "A" personality/over achiever mentality that is developed with bodybuilding spills over into everyday activities; academic, professional and personal. And you look good in a suit!!
