I got started lifting to get bigger for football, but when high school football ended I continued lifting and wanted to remain competitive as well. I saw bodybuilding as a mean to fulfill both passions.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?









What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I love to try every new supplement that comes out. I've tried many different NO products and test boosters, but the only thing that I think really makes a difference in shaping my body is protein. Without protein I would not be a bodybuilder.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love the feeling of lifting, the pump, the intensity and hormones that are released while lifting, and I especially love being able to shape my body any way I want it to look. It is my anti-drug.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

Competing is a huge factor in maintaining a healthy diet and workout plan. If I didn't compete I probably wouldn't be as intense as I am. It definitely feels better to live healthy then to be an overweight bum I'm sure.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I always wanted to be bigger. I was somewhat made fun of for being a skinny boy so I wanted to show the world what I could be.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan to continue competing a couple times a year and hopefully turn professional if I can. If I cant then I will still continue to bodybuild as a hobby to shape my body the way I want it to be.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

If you're a hard gainer and can't get bigger you're not eating enough. Eat to the point of throwing up every meal and so frequently you're never hungry. You'll get big in no time.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Arnold, Ronnie Coleman, and Frank McGrath.

What Features Do You Use On Bodybuilding.com?

I have utilized the forums for help on diet and to look for a new exercise to incorporate into my routine. I also of course buy all my supplements right here on Bodybuilding.com.
