How Did You Get Started?

I got started through my wrestling coach during my freshman year of high school. We would run half a mile to our local gym, Texas Gym, the most hardcore gym in Texas, and work like no tomorrow for about an hour. Then we would run back for practice. Weightlifting became my addiction and has been ever since I stepped foot in that gym.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I change it up every three or four months, when I feel it is needed. As of right now it looks like this...

  • Day 1: Chest, Tris
  • Day 2: Back, Biceps
  • Day 3: Shoulders, Traps
  • Day 4: Legs
I rest when I feel it is needed and calves and abs are done every other day.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

Basically, 5 meals a day, consisting of about 700-800 calories each meal, with the same amount of protein, carbs, and fats in each meal. I take note of everything I eat and how it affects my workout. If I eat something that has a positive affect, I add that in or substitute it for something that's not helping me. Why waist nutrition? Most people don't understand that is the most important part of building lean, quality muscle no matter what age you are. Do not rely on supplements alone!

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I gained 12 pounds of lean muscle when my stack consisted of V12, Whey Protien, Amino Acids (ECAA, BCAA), and Multi-Vitamins.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It's the rush I get when I put up 1000 pounds on a leg press, the pump in my bicep after a hardcore workout, the atmosphere and the positive influence that I have on others, and the great people at my gym especially. You're not going to become Mr. Universe if you workout at Bally's. My atmosphere has an incredible affect on my attitude and workout.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

Compete June 2 in Plano, TX naturally, and several other competitions after that. I plan to compete in nationals eventually, whether it be while I'm a teen or later on. I will be competing to win.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

It's a quote I've heard around my gym; "Get as big as you can, but don't get a big head." Basically, respect everyone, even beginners, because someday they might be your competition.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Ronnie Coleman, Darrem Charles, Jay Cutler, Dexter Jackson, Franco Columbo, and Tom Platz.
