How Did You Get Started?

There were two people that got me into bodybuilding. One was my father and the other was a guy in my latin class during my sophomore. Chris H. was into bodybuilding and he would always bring the latest issue of Flex to class. The first time I saw this magazine I was extremely impressed with the athletes physiques. I fell in love with the sport immediately and know it was what I wanted to do.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I would have to say a four on, one off schedule. Hitting legs Monday, Back tuesday morning, chest in the afternoon, shoulders and traps Wednesday, arms on Thursday. Abs and calves about 2 - 3 times a week. Rest one day and then repeat.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Whey protein and Glutamine!!! Protein is a given. Once I started supplementing with glutamine in my diet I seemed just a little fuller and harder and recovered a little faster.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Physical perfection of the human body. The pump. That feeling you get every time you look in the mirror and you see improvement. The comradre between other bodybuilders (it takes another bodybuilder to fully understand why bodybuilders make the sacrifices they make). It's what I'm good at and what I will always love.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan to compete in the year 2000. It will be my last year as a teen and I would like to compete on a teen level ad get a little experience before I step on stage with some of the veterans of the sport. Also it will help me learn about my body and how it will respond to dieting. I plan on putting on about another 15 - 20 lbs. before I compete next year. My ultimate goal is to own my own gym, be a pro bodybuilder, personal trainer and maybe have my own magazine column one day. LOL! I want to help get the sport and all its athletes more recognition for their hard work and dedication.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

My advice to teens that I would tell them is don't listen to all the know-it-alls. It's good to get advice but it seems like everyone think they know what is best for you. Educate yourself on the sport and learn your body and what works for you. You're still young, good things come to those who wait and remember, you'll get out of it what you put into it. Train hard, rest, and gROW!
