Why I Got Started
dot

I started weight training to gain weight and strength after high school. I ate everything I could get my hands on just to try to gain weight at all costs. I started competing in 2007 and did my first show as a middleweight and did a couple of other shows as a middleweight. So I decided to take a long off-season to try to gain as much size as I could and try to come in as a bigger competitor. When my off-season began I started gaining slowly and that wasn't good enough for me. I got hung up in the "size at all cost" game again which led to a body weight of 250 pounds. After a long off season I realized it was time to start prepping for another run at the stage and through this process, the help of my sponsor MUSCLETECH, and my Nutritionist Mark Tourcotte I made the transformation of my life.

How I Did It
dot

I lost all my weight to get ready for the stage with a solid workout routine along with a diet and Muscletech products. After dieting and training for 16 weeks I went from 250 pounds to a stage weight of 165.8 pounds. I can't take all of the credit for this; I had a great support team and would like to thank my workout partners Cory Chandler, Casey Centner, Mark Lawburg and Mark Tourcotte. It was easy to get the job done knowing that when I needed someone to push me in the gym I could call one of them to come in and help me push to that next level. I also have to pay thanks to my nutritionist Mark Tourcotte and my sponsor MUSCLETECH that has backed me from day one when I started prepping for the stage this 2010 season.

Training

My workouts would change weekly.

Ex. Week 1: 12-15 reps. Week 2: 8 reps. Week 3: 4-6 reps.

TERMS YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW
Superset - Two exercises are performed consecutively without any rest.
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.

Example Week 1:

Day 1: Chest

Superset:

Day 2: Back

Day 3: Legs

Day 4: Shoulders

Superset:

Day 5: Arms

Day 6: Rest

Day 7: Rest

Note: I do Cardio every other morning - 30 minutes walking on treadmill on an incline. I change up the exercises and reps every couple of weeks.

Suggestions For Others
dot

If there's anything I could tell other competitors or someone just trying to transform their physique I would tell you to write out a game plan and stick to it. Dieting on top of working and training is not easy but for the best results possible you need to stick to what you have started and push past the fact that you're tired, in pain and just frustrated. You will not get exactly what you're looking for overnight so stay positive and keep track of your progress because in the end you will be a hell of a lot happier when you reach your goal than if you were to give up. Train hard and stay focused.
