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

I started working at the Bodybuilding.com warehouse in Midway, FL shortly after I moved to Tallahassee for school. When I saw that there was a position for shipping specialist at a place that I had loved for the past couple of years I was ecstatic. It truly is the best job I've ever had. I'm also amazed at how many people just order free samples and nothing else.


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

I'm in the gym almost every day of the week; I have to force myself on days to not go so I don't overtrain. Starting work at Bodybuilding.com my nutrition has dramatically improved. I plan my diet out very thoroughly, aside from the bag of jalapeno chips I just ate.

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

I like to incorporate a lot of different types of weight training to switch things up and always have my muscles guessing. Switching between high and low reps, drop sets, negatives, etc.

I change my workouts weekly but I generally stick to these core workouts. Luckily my roommate likes to work out as much as I do so we keep each other motivated. If he's not there to spot me, my lovely girlfriend does. I generally like to start with whatever involves the most weight, usually a compound movement. Most of the exercises I go extremely slow and try to focus hard on the contraction and negative parts of the movement.

Day 1: Back

Day 2: Chest/Calves

Day 3: Legs

Day 4: Off

Day 5: Arms

Day 6: Off

Day 7: Shoulders/Traps

[ Q ] What supplements have helped you reach your goals?

I have found the best product for me post workout is Anabolic Halo with a protein shake 30 minutes after. Arginine has also helped out a lot through workouts by preventing lactic acid build up as fast, making it easier to workout longer and harder.
