How Did You Get Started?

On August 16, 1999, my brother, Jas Dhillon introduced me to the sport of bodybuilding. Since then it has changed my perspective on life. If there is one person that I can thank for helping me be where I am today, it would have to be my one and only brother (Other than my mom and dad)!

Bodybuilding has given me so many benefits from a better physique to motivation to succeed. When I started bodybuilding I was six feet tall and weighed in at 139 pounds. I was as scrawny as one can get. I was so weak that I could hardly bench press 70 pounds, nearly half of my bodyweight at the time. I would see others looking at me to get a good laugh. That made me want to train even harder. After about six months of training, I began to appreciate certain aspects of my body that I was previously not aware of and my attitude began to change. After approximately 4 years of training I have added at least 50 pounds of lean mass and am able to bench 250 lbs., unlike the 70 lbs. I did before.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Most definitely creatine provided me with some initial muscle gains, but I personally believe that there is no better supplement than "hard work" and "persistence." You can only go as far as you push! Also...YOU HAVE TO EAT BIG TO GET BIG!

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Bodybuilding is intriguing to so many people just to look good, but to me it is much more. First you have to have dreams. Listen to yourself as you follow your dreams. And surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you and believe in you. Don't just listen to people who don't. Bodybuilding has set a foundation for me to succeed from. For example, gaining an inch on my arms took long hard work, determination and persistence. I worked very hard everyday at the gym, but I soon learned that hard work wasn't good enough. I slowly learned from my mistakes and began to train smart by changing my workout routine.

If you feel passionate about your dreams, make then goals! And if it's what you really want, then you'll do whatever it takes to achieve it. No matter how much SWEAT, PAIN, and SACRIFICE - no matter how many obstacles you have to break through. Just NEVER SAY NEVER when it pertains to your goals! At times, I felt as if my muscles were shrinking, but I knew I couldn't give up. I was determined to add that inch on my arms and was able to do so by hard work, persistence, motivation, and determination.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I am currently 190 lbs and one of my goals is to get up to 210 lbs and still be ripped! I will continue to improve and sculpt my body for the rest of my life...it is not something I have to do but something I love and enjoy!

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Don't incorporate bodybuilding into your life if you are doing it to impress the ladies. If you do it for yourself and no other person....everything will fall into place and the ladies will follow! Belive in YOURSELF!

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

There is just one bodybuilder that I look up to and that is my brother! He is my brother and my best friend. My favorite professional bodybuilder is most DEFINITELY ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER! He is just amazing...no other bodybuilder compares and never will! His hard work and determination has given him success in all aspects! You kick a$$ Arnold!

Special Thanks to George Hassemer for his support and believing in my abilities to succeed!
