Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Adam Aycock

Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Adam Aycock! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I lifted since middle school, but I never took it to the next level until about August of 2008, at which point I weighed 133 pounds. I had some excess stress in my life, and the gym seemed like a great place to release. I began packing on a few pounds and surprising my friends. One day in the gym, while I was minding my own business, my workout partner grabbed me by the shirt and dragged me over to one of the trainers. He said "Yo, [trainer's name], why don't you put this guy in a competition?"

The trainer (now my coach/nutritionist) responded, "I would if he could learn how to eat." and he invited me to a sort-of club meeting for his bodybuilding clients about a month later. Since then, I've been hooked, and I must say I definitely "learned how to eat."

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding for a number of reasons. My success gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Attacking the iron is great opportunity to "bring the pain" and drop some of the stress from the day. Simply put, bodybuilding makes me feel good about myself. I'm a happier, more confident person as a result.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

I remember counting fat grams on the back of soup labels when I was 4 years old. I have simply always had a drive to be healthy and to perform at my best.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I was working toward my first competition, so I've had the pressure of a deadline. I've always had a case of the 'little man' syndrome, so being a little bigger is nice for a change.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

As of now, I plan to compete in 3 or 4 more shows this year, including one NGA pro qualifier. I plan to continue to compete as a lightweight for the time being.
