How Did You Get Started?

Every since I was a kid I have always found much interest in the human ability to grow in order to adapt to change. I wanted to do bodybuilding at the age of 10, but didn't have the money to go to a gym and the fact that they told me I had to be 16 pulled me down.

My ideas were heavily criticized by my friends. I was laughed at when I mentioned that my idol was Arnold. Being very small framed and lightweight nobody would believe I had any potential. It was hard (and still is). I became self-reliant and motivated by sheer determination to prove to all that opposed my views that they would be wrong.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

My first attempt at using weights in a gym was when I was early 15 (I lied to get in, stating I was 16). I started fully training at 16 after my GCSE exams in a gym local to my college. I made it a goal to firstly achieve the strengths of both physical and mental drive that was going to be needed for my later devotion to adapt to a new body.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

At 17 (current) I recorded notes on my gains, no matter how small, using Creatine as a booster for "Intense Training" times. I want to gain weight to at least 180 lbs.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

The idea of bodybuilding is like art sculpture and reconfiguration. The body is the material, the mind is the creator, and the knowledge is the plan. I enjoy the satisfaction from gains and the overall idea of building a unique body.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

My future in bodybuilding is to create a dynamic body that is somehow unique and of which will be trademarked by me. I also hope to go into art, linking both together.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Have an imagination and free the mind; plan the body you will build. Imagine the feeling of being a powerful object that is consistent. For example, I imagined I was a machine capable of lifting at a steady rate like car pistons moving with a mechanical feel and not faltering until my body physically made me stop. I imagined that my arms were about to explode on the very peak of a curl and then released down steadily. When you think of the human form, eventually you may build into it.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

My all time favorite Bodybuilder is Arnold. He has inspired me since I was 5.
