How Did You Get Started?

Bodybuilding has always been in my family. My grandfather worked out till the day that he died at the age of 73 and my Dad also works out like a maniac. I got started because I had always been cut-up but never really had any size. I actually planned to workout just for a few weeks until I achieved a little more mass. Little did I know those few weeks would turn into 2 years and an on-going addiction. I also was inspired by my grandfather who was the strongest grandpa alive at his time.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I recommend working out at least 4 days a week. I myself work out 5-6 days a week.

Every other Week I substitute any barbell workouts with dumbbell workouts. For example, if I do barbell bench press this week then next week I will do dumbbell benchpress. I also try new exercises every week to try and hit a different part of a muscle. I sometimes even do the same exercise but at a different angle.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Remember, YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!

I eat 5-6 meals a day.

One of my meals will be meatless and the rest will definitely have some type of meat.

I drink mostly water and ALOT of it. If I don't drink water I'm either drinking a protein shake, fruit juice, or milk.

No fast food or fatty drinks that you can get from a Ben and Jerry's or something.

I snack on fruits throughout my day which help keep you and your muscles hydrated.

I drink a protein shake after every workout but never drink one on a day that I don't workout.

I take multivitamins everyday.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

The Vitamins and the Pro-NOS protein have given me the greatest gains. I did experiment with creatine for a couple of months. It works for the time that you are on it but as soon as you get off it you lose any gains that you got from it.

I didn't see any reason to take it after experimenting with it because you can always find creatine in meat so why take more especially if the gains are just temporary.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because it helps release my stress and helps me get away from the world around me and puts me in my own world. I also love the results I get from it.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan to keep bodybuilding until I can't anymore. I actually want to pick up modeling, but if any bodybuilding competitions come my way that doesn't mean I won't compete.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Drink Water! Most people who workout have no idea how important water is for a bodybuilder. Water helps your kidneys break down all those amino acids that you take in, hydrates your muscles better than anything and much more! Fruits also contain a lot of water.
