How Did You Get Started?

When I was 14, I started to admire people whose bodies were looking just like those ancient statues of greek gods. I thought, "Well, that's pure perfection! That's how I want to look ONE DAY!" Soon, after a few months, I tried it on my own. I went in the gym and from then on I didn't miss a single workout!

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I change my workout plan very often, but here is one sample plan which worked fine for me:

Arrow Sample Workout Week:

    DAY 1: chest heavy, triceps light
    DAY 2: legs light, shoulders heavy, abs, calves
    DAY 3: back heavy, biceps light
    DAY 4: /
    DAY 5: chest light, triceps heavy
    DAY 6: legs heavy, shoulders light, abs, calves
    DAY 7: back light, biceps heavy
    DAY 8: /
    And repeat.

I do 8-15 sets per muscle group per workout (8 for smaller muscles, 15 for bigger). On "heavy" workouts I do 5-10 repetitions and on "light" 8-15 with more mind-muscle connection.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I often change my nutrition plans, calculate all those calories, proteins, fats, etc. because I like to make my plans simple and useful.

I eat 9 meals a day (including my during-workout meal and PWM). I avoid eating sugars (except around workout) and junk food. So I choose healthy food sources, like chicken and beef, fish, whole eggs, dried fruit, vegetables, nuts, etc.

Becaue I still want to gain some lean mass, I combine 6-8 weeks of small calorie excess with 3-4 weeks of small calorie deficit (mostly because of carbohydrate reduction).

This kind of nutrition plan seems good to me, I don't gain so much fat and so it helps me to stay lean whole year.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I don't "blame" supplements for my gains. Although supplements are important in every serious bodybuilder's life, there's no "miraculous pill". Hard work and a proper nutrition - that's first!

Well, if I really have to choose supplements that have given me the greatest gains, I would say that are: a strong multivitamin, whey protein, BCAAs and a volumizing formula (GKG) with a base of creatine.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It's a great way to avoid everyday stress and relax myself after school.

I also love it because of that feeling of having muscles pumped with blood and the ability to transform my body in the way I like. I simply love it!

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I don't have any special long-term goals. But I'll try to do my best, gain some lean mass, stay natural, maybe winn some contests in the future and the most inportant - make my body as aesthetic as possible!
