Why I Got Started

I had always been interested in lifting weights but lacked the conviction to ever really stay dedicated. Throughout my teenage years I was also always that "fat funny guy" and I was sick of playing that role. I had been married and divorced and found myself fatter than ever, barely being able to make it up a flight of stairs without huffing.

I thought to myself I better get my butt in shape ... especially if I'm single! I started reading on all the time. I also got a hold of any books and fitness magazines I could get my hands on. I'm pretty sure I've read Arnold Schwarzenegger's Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding about 3 times now!

Slowly but surely I worked my way into a routine that I stuck with and got my diet on track. Gradually the pounds started coming off but I could notice changes in the mirror faster than the weight was dropping! Now I'm in the best shape of my life and I will be completing my bachelor's degree in exercise science from Eastern Illinois University so I can be a personal trainer and help others achieve their goals! I have recently begun competing in bench press meets and I even won first place at my first meet!

Generally I try to get in about 6-7 meals per day. I try to keep carb intake limited to breakfast, pre-workout, and post-workout as well. A typical daily diet for me would be something like this:

I normally train for 4 days each week in order to get enough days off for my muscles to recuperate. I like to hit each muscle group once (normally) except for my biceps and triceps which I work twice a week.

Suggestions For Others

Remember, diet is key! Diet accounts for about 80 percent of your goals when it comes to fat loss. Never give up the fat loss fight and always remember form over ego in the gym! Good luck to all in your quest for fitness and I hope this page can help inspire just one person to make a positive change in their life! God Bless!
