How Did You Get Started?

I started lifting in my basement when I was 13 years old. I weighed about 75lbs when I started and by 8th grade I was already around 95lbs. It wasn't until after freshman year wrestling that I decided to pursue bodybuilding in full force. I lifted heavy and put on size until I was 18. I competed in my first competition, The Oklahoma Classic, after I graduated high school and won the teen division of the show. I did the 2006 Teen Nationals later on that summer and took 3rd in the welterweight class.

After a successful off-season I came back and won the welterweight class at the 2007 Teen Nationals & then a week later won the teen division of the Caveman Classic and took 3rd in the men's open middleweight class.

My goal now that I have to be competitive in the men's division is to just put on quality mass onto my frame and get even more shredded for my competitions in 2008.
