How Did You Get Started?

Since I was about 12 or younger, I had worked out here and there, not on any real regimen. When I turned 14, I had a gym set up in my basement, printed out a couple of pictures of bodybuilders to hang, and took an interest. I then started looking up some of the modern bodybuilders, (Ronnie Coleman, Dennis James etc.) I was in awe by their physiques. Ronnie especially inspired me to the fullest. I had always had a desire to be larger than life so from that night I could not even sleep since all I could think about was bodybuilding and getting into competing. From the point on I caught the bug and the rest was history.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Always basic, free weight, low reps, and heavy!

My routine looks like this.

Failure - That point in an exercise at which you have so fully fatigued your working muscles that they can no longer complete an additional repetition of a movement with strict biomechanics. You should always take your post-warm-up sets at least to the point of momentary muscular failure, and frequently past that point.
Drop Sets - Also known as strip sets, drop sets involve the immediate reduction of weight between sets with no rest. This will thoroughly burn out a muscle.

Day 1: Chest

Day 2: Legs

Day 3: Shoulders/Traps

Day 4: Back

Day 5: Biceps/Triceps

Day 6 And 7: Off

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

The only supplement that I currently use and swear by is RTN's Bionic Edge Mass Builder! It is truly a futuristic product, with no artificially sweeteners or fillers. It is micro-filtered protein isolates, and uses Stevy-Zyme for the taste. And the taste is beyond any protein powder I have ever taken. It includes 20 amino acids all listed along the side, and can be digested by anyone with virtually any allergies, including gluten, wheat product, and even lactose intolerance!

The biggest aspect that caught my eye, especially being a hard-gainer, is the fact that it is loaded with real carbohydrates, all from real sweet potato, brown rice, and oatmeal. This means heavy clean muscle gains with NO maltodextrin, or anything high in GI that could add fat.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love it for many reasons. Number one is always to glorify God. On top of that another major reason being the pump that it gives you. Plus I've always wanted to be big considering I was pretty thin and very light to begin with. Upon entering high school, I was extremely small and over all petite, which I of course hated.

I feel that I started with less than even the most ectomorphic people have. When I started bodybuilding in January, 2006, I was 14, about 5'2"-5'3"ish, had 11.5" arms, and weighed only 104-105lbs at the end of the day. By the time I was 17; I had won shows, and put on well over 50lbs of quality muscle. Another major reason had to do with the fact that I was always just okay in sports. I felt that this was a sport I could go far in, and the results would always be there, if someone wanted to see your results, you just whip off your shirt, or roll up a sleeve.

My father has an intense collection of trophies and medals from his days as a marathon runner. He went to the top of an also independent sport. I was dying for something I could build up accomplishments in, and actually have a passion for it at the same time.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

The drive for perfection and dominance is what drives me! To me bodybuilding is not only the most demanding sport, and lifestyle, but it is also the picture of physical perfection! In order to achieve this you must follow the lifestyle... And I love it! I want to be the best. And right now, I want to be the best natural teen bodybuilder!

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I am a very intense and very driven person. If I am into something, I become obsessive about making it happen! That simple!

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan on becoming a major icon for the sport and lifestyle of bodybuilding. My goals for competition are similar to that of many. Earn my natural pro card, gain more sponsorship, and expand as a spokesmodel etc. But my bigger picture is to help push bodybuilding out into the mainstream along with the other current sports!

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

I think everybody advises future bodybuilders to research, research, research, and learn their nutrition then training. So I am going to give a different piece of advice, that I feel is too often overlooked. Just do it! Nike became the biggest sports brand for a reason, and their slogan should be applied daily! Don't over analyze yourself, conditions, or competition guidelines too much. The only factor you should go by when deciding when to start competing, is determining when you want to not when you feel you should, or when others think you are "ready". Competing is among the most fun experiences, and the earlier you begin the more success you will have. If you feel like you want to get on stage, just do it!

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Ronnie Coleman is first and foremost! Even when I fall away from him for a while, and start to think I have found some new name that I like better, I am quickly reminded without doubt, that he is the best in my opinion! I am also a major fan of Evan Centopani. I got to meet him when he guest posed at one of my shows in 2007, 4 weeks before he won Nationals. To know him then, and then see him sky rocket into such a phenomenal pro is amazing!

I also love Jay Cutler, for his personality in business and promoting. He is a man who gets things done and is always pushing toward the next big thing. I love Lee Priest and Flex Wheeler of course!

One of my favorite teen bodybuilder was Shane Giese. In my opinion the absolute best teen bodybuilder of all time was the Russian Aleksei Lesukov, back when he was a teenager!

What Features Do You Use On Bodybuilding.com?

I use every feature possible, the most predominant being BodySpace of course! That is where my entire career more or less began!
