How Did You Get Started?

I got started when I was 16. My friends from school took me in the gym. I was playing basketball and I wasn't strong enough. Lifting was love on the first sight. I love it. Soon I saw that isn't just lifting weights but it is also right nutrition and discipline. So I tried some nutrition supplements like pure milk powder and then I trained even harder.

I love it because it is a lifestyle. It means everything to me. I love lifting, I love posing, love gaining muscle and getting in shape. The problem is just that, that I must working 4 hours a day for food (supplements). :)

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I haven't been in any competitions yet, because bodybuilding in Slovenia isn't so popular and there is, I think one competition in a year unfortunately. But we have some good bodybuilders (Dean Madzarovich, Mr. Universe 2001). I will compete soon.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

I think that bodybuilding hasn't got a respect in EU like other sports. I think that bodybuilding is one of the heaviest sports.

Discipline is all-important to success in bodybuilding. So is the ability to concentrate, to set yourself a goal and not anything stand in your way. (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

The No.1 bodybuilder is Milos Sarcev (my neighbor from Yugoslavia:)). Arnold and Frank Zane are my favorite bodybuilders too.
