Why You Got Started

I got started because I was on the off-season ever since I started bodybuilding. And I always wondered how I would look like with all the fat and water drained out of me.

I didn't know how to start or what to do, but luckily I stumbled onto - now one of my closest friends - Matt Scott. He explained the science of weight loss and bodybuilding to me. After a month of doing my homework, I began my weight-loss journey, leading up to the NPC California Bodybuilding State Championship.

How You Did It

I was still going to high school this year in 2007 and my show was in May, and school for me also ended in May. It was real difficult because I didn't celebrate my 18th birthday, didn't go to prom, or any activity my senior year because my on-season was from January to May.

I was in lock-down mode. I would wake up at 3:45 a.m. have my first meal, and then headed to the gym at 4 a.m. I did one hour of cardio, one hour of abs, showered, and then headed to school. Then I would come home at 2 p.m. and sleep till 6:45 p.m. and head to the gym at 7 p.m. (I STILL GOT UP EVERY TWO HOURS TO EAT MY SMALL MEALS).

I Got Up Every 2 Hours To Eat.

I would be at the gym from 7-to-11 p.m. working out. I would stay there for an hour and a half longer for posing and talking to my training partners, to stay motivated. Then I would wake up the next day to do it all over again.

On the on-season I do sets of 5 and reps of 10-to-15 and my final set goes to failure. I always went as heavy as possible and used free weights, machines, and hammer strength machines. Also everyday I did cardio and abs at 4 a.m, as I told you earlier.

The off-season week goes as following:

On-season workout schedule:

    Monday: Chest and Shoulders

Suggestions For Others

If your looking to transform your body always stick to your diet. If anything, cheat on your workouts but never your diet. You are what you eat! Stay motivated with small goals, eventually leading to the big one.

Surround yourself with positive supporting people and get rid of all the rest. Believe in yourself, and never think something is impossible, because nothing is too far out of reach. Look at me now. I am training for the 2008 NPC Teen Nationals in Pittsburgh, who would have known.
