How Did You Get Started?
Well, allow me to set the scene for you. I was 13 years old, 5'11" and 210 lbs. I ate everything and anything I saw, until one day I ate a fried platter of junk and my whole life changed. My dad was a bodybuilder in the 1980's and we have a huge gym in my home, so I decided to lift. At first it was lightweight workouts fueled by a new healthy diet. But, then 6 months later I had lost 50lbs and it was time to build some serious muscle.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
My first year of bodybuilding, I had no idea what I was doing. I was working a lot of chest and biceps because that's all I thought I had to do. Then when I started to get more serious I did a lot of research and all that jazz. But, ultimately I asked my dad what his workout plan was... and I've been using it ever since.
**I perform Day 1 on Mondays and Thursdays, and Day 2 on Tuesdays and Fridays
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
For starters, I drink a lot of protein! A shake when in the morning, after workout, mid day, night time, and when I go to bed. I don't eat anything with a lot of sugars and fats (no soda, no ice cream, chips, etc). However, I do eat a lot of carbs (pasta) and a lot of grilled chicken and tuna. I'm a cook at Pier Pizza, so I'm around heavy foods all the time, which can be a distraction. Also, I try to stay away from things with a lot of sodium.
That's about it!
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
I really like NO-XPLODE. It contains caffeine so it really gets me going in the mornings and I also love how it increases my focus while I'm at the gym. I take it 30 minutes before I get there, and when I'm there I'm so ready to take on whatever anyone can throw at me. It does a lot more than increasing strength. I get huge pumps, and a really angry attitude. I really love it.
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love Bodybuilding because it's a solo sport. You can't rely on anyone else to pickup your slack. Don't get me wrong being on a team is great but when you win a championship playing football you share the spotlight with your team members. But, when you win a contest in Bodybuilding you've won that contest on your own with nobody's help. Not to mention, if you lose you can't blame anyone else. There's been times when I was on a team and my team wasn't trying as hard as they could've been and we lostâ€¦ it wasn't very fun.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
My future Bodybuilding plans are pretty simple. The ultimate goal is to get a magazine cover by the time I'm 20 years old. It's going to take some work but I think I'm on the right path. Another goal of mine would to be sponsored by a nutrition/supplement company. Getting paid for doing something I love, well that would just be the best.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
If I could just give one tip to a Bodybuilder it would have to be to always push yourself to the max. When I go to the gym I look at it like it's my job, and I always do my best. Whether if it's trying to get one more rep up, or just waking up to go to the gym... it's all about pushing yourself.
