How Did You Get Started?

Well back when I was 14 years old in High School I use to see how the athletes were in such great shape, getting attention not only for sports but for having a nice body too. In school I was a push over, people felt the need to pick on me a lot, and part of that was because of my size. So I wanted to do something about it, so my best of friends Spencer M. helped me out. He asked me to come by his house to train one afternoon, so when I got there he and his cousin had already started and had there shirts off, so I join them and was the laughing stock, I was so embarrassed, so I put my shirt back on and proceeded. From that day on I was hooked, looking for all the right answers and all of the knowledge I could acquire. Then finally after years of on and off training I met a couple of good people that helped me out a lot, Allen Crowder, CEO of New Millennium Fitness and Darrly Laws of Unlimited Fitness, with there help I was able to achieve unbelievable goals.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Well I do 2 on 1 off schedule and also use the Lee Haney system doing 6-8 reps for all heavy movements and 12-15 reps for shaping movements. For example for chest: Bench press and Incline press I'll do 6-8 reps and go heavy and for Flyes and Cable Cross I'll do 12-20 reps all the time.
