How Did You Get Started?

About one and a half years ago my brother started working out. He was taking the school weight training class. The next semester I signed up for weight training too. I couldn't let him beat me so I give all of my credit to my brother (Joe Chmura). He always pushed me to get stronger, and do more reps.

I was also motivated by my classmates. I hate the fact of being weaker than somebody. So I strived to do my best. Before long I was second strongest in the class, and I was addicted to bodybuilding. Since my brother was on supplements I always worked as hard as I could. He bought Muscle and Fitness magazines and as soon as he was finished reading them, it was all mine. I have to thank him again and again for helping me get to this point. Thanks Joe.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Mostly I just eat right. My parents are against me taking supplements for the most part so I just deal with what I have. I eat a lot of eggs, rice, and not too many beans but a good amount of them. I stay away from soda and sugary drinks as much as possible. And I eat tons of whole grains. Love them. Cereal, sandwiches, bagels, and all sorts of breads.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Well, do to the fact that I do not take supplements I can only tell you what tastes the best to me - Chocolate Muscle Milk. The kind that comes made up already.
