Preparing For The 2007 Colorado Pro


[ Q ] It's your 2nd year as an IFBB Pro and you competed in 3 shows already this year with at least 4 more including this one. Do you think you can maintain your peak and get better or will you run out of gas by Olympia time where it counts most?

    [ A ] June this year will mark one year as being an IFBB Pro, and I will be competing in 3 more shows, including the three I have already done.

    I do understand how my body reacts, and moreover with the good standard of training and the support of my sponsors. As long as the moral of competition is there I will continue training and competing. As I continue to compete I will bring better qualities each time. So the gas will still be there and even more for a better show at the Olympia.

    There is a great difference from when I was without any sponsors for the past 5 years. I've improved more on my quality and size, feel stronger than ever... I feel more determined to put in more effort on my training and improvements. I also have more advertisement and lots of publications which is helping me get closer to my many fans!

    [ A ] Like I told you, I'm just a newcomer in the pro circuit, and I do have a lot to learn and improve on, so it will take some time.
