How Did You Get Started?

The way I got started is when my dad bought me my first Muscle & Fitness magazine when I was in 6th grade. My dad also told my that weight training will also pay off in sports too. So I believed what he said and I went for it.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I don't really follow a specific workout plan. I train 2 muscle groups a day. An example is Back and Tri's, bi's and shoulders, chest, legs.

Arrow Sample Training Week:

I also box twice a week, so on day 6 I work on shoulder strength.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

  • I make sure I get 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day.
  • I try to avoid desserts and fried foods as much as I can, but once in a long time isn't going to hurt that bad.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I would have to say that it would be the Creatine which has given me the greatest gains.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I'm from a school of about 300 people, and a lot are good at some particular sport but they don't watch what they eat or anything like that. No one in the school is a bodybuilder or that is into bodybuilding like me. I also use to be the one of the smallest guys in the class since 7th grade, now some kids are asking me if I take steroids or something, but I say no. I just like to watch myself get bigger and more defined throughout the years, and each year it becomes more valuable to me.
