How Did You Get Started?

My entire family has been in sports, and I'm no exception. I have been in many sports (soccer, ice-hockey, karate, and cycling). Ever since I was a small boy I’ve wanted to maximize my muscles. I saw many films with Arnold, and then I thought to myself: Enough only watching films and reading magazines. It's time to do something. For the first 3 years I trained in my home gym. Then I joined a gym named Universal Gym. Now I'm Mr. Czech, and it gives me motivation to work harder in upcoming years.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I train 2+1. Dorian style! I can't say which plans are the best, but there are some rules which I abide by:

  • Use a majority of Free Weights
  • Enough sets, 9 for major muscle groups, and 6 sets for minor
  • Train with maximum possible intensity

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I can't eat a lot of saccarides because I'm an endo-mesomorp. So I eat 4grams of saccarides per day and 3-4grams of Protein. I stay away from fats. The most important meal of the day is breakfast, which should contain a lot of saccarides and first-class protein. Then the meal after training (basic sugars with Whey Protein). Finally, the meal before sleep (no saccarides, and a time released Protein). I use Protein Powders, Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals every day.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Micro and Ultra Filtrate Whey Isolates give me the best results. Protein is the building blocks of muscle.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Because it makes me happy and very positive in other aspects of living. As a matter of fact I don’t know why I love bodybuilding. Perhaps it's in me. I have it in my blood. I like to train, I like the pump, I like cooking, I like to compete, I like everything about it. So when I’m in the gym, I'm in a heaven. And I can't imagine doing any other sport. I’ll love bodybuilding forever.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

This year I'm going to upper category (Juniors). So I'll try to compete here, but it will be difficult because money already plays a strong role. So bodybuilding is not easy without sponsors. However I'll try it. And I'll do my maximum to place well on my next contest. I also want to become a personal trainer, and one day own my own gym.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

If you want be successful, you must learn to have discipline and be hard working. You can't have a muscular physique over-night. It is a long journey. Just hold it and results will come. And don't forget! Nothing is free. No pain no gain.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Arnold has been the biggest influence in my life.
