BodySpace Physique Of The Month: HeatRock29
"Xa" is his name, short for Xavisus. But short is not the list of what this guy does; United States Marine, bodybuilder, music producer, model and single father of two little girls! On BodySpace you will find him as "HeatRock29", the nickname his buddies gave this 30 year old talent after he had a recording studio called HeatRock in Twentynine Palms, home of the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Command Center.
Born in Houston, Xa has been a Marine for 11+ years and has seen Iraq, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Okinawa and mainland Japan. He also served aboard the dock landing ship, USS Rushmore which transports Marine hovercraft. A champion basketball player on base, he is also a champion in every sport he plays including football and rugby. And now moving ahead as a champion bodybuilder placing in a number of shows despite only discovering bodybuilding last year!

He Has Placed In Several Bodybuilding Shows
Despite Only Discovering Bodybuilding Last Year.
Suffering from chronic migraine headaches during his tour in Iraq, Xa found that lifting in the gym helped control them. So he kept lifting on his return to the U.S. when a trainer told him he should give a try at competing and helped him refine his lifting and diet. But it was in Iraq that Xa found BodyBuilding.com when he saw all the boxes coming in for other Marines. And then on BodyBuilding.com he found BodySpace which he calls a "community reaching for the same goals you are". He says he really likes the new innovations on BodySpace like the workout plans but most of all likes the "inspiration" he finds there.
Personally I am really impressed how Xa finds the time for everything he does while being a full time single father of his two young girls. He manages to work out daily if not twice or three times doing double or triple split routines. In the mornings he cooks up his five to six meals for the day which are comprised mostly of chicken, beef, tuna, brown rice, oats, and egg whites. And he always stays lean currently at 6ft-1in tall and weighing 205 pounds.

Long term, Xa is planning on eventually pursuing his career of music producing, having had success in the past from starting out DJ'ing to doing base concerts, having his own studio and being in MTV Source. But he still is Staff Sgt. Xavisus Gayden, Marine Career Counselor and very proud of it! In the bodybuilding world he is looking to doing some more shows for 2010 and putting on some more size but always trying to keep looking his best. And I think we can all agree he does look great!
Go visit Xa on BodySpace, remember his name is "HeatRock29". He is not only inspired like many on BodySpace but also inspiring!
