The Interview

[ Q ] Tell us a little about yourself. What is your position at BB.com? How long have you worked here?
dot

    I am an Assistant Manager in the Customer Service Contact Center and have worked here for 2 years.

dot
[ Q ] What was your workout/fitness/nutrition level before working at BB.com?
dot

    Before I worked for Bodybuilding.com I mainly stayed in shape by just playing basketball. I lifted weights pretty hard back in college, but once I graduated it was hard to lift with the same motivation, intensity, and purpose. I didn't watch what I ate and knew nothing about supplementation.

[ Q ] What does your workout routine consist of now?
dot

    I try to hit at least one body part every day of the week, but usually hit 2. Most of my workouts I have gotten off of the Supersite training article listing, but I still do several of the routines I learned while I was in college. Most of the time I do some sort of abs between every exercise or 2, and Fridays are usually Superset days depending on what body part I'm on that day.

dot
[ Q ] What does your diet consist of now?
dot

    I try to eat as healthy as possible these days, but to be honest it doesn't always work out that way. When I'm focused and really trying to eat well my diet usually consists of eggs, oatmeal, chicken, rice, and vegetables.
