How Did You Get Started?

I first started out lifting for the girls back in high school. Then I started to see good results and decided to take it to another level. I love to see my body change from day to day. I love the pump I get in the gym.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

3 days on, 1 day off program has worked best for me. Some days though I just feel so pumped that I need to go a 4th day. I usually split it up in the order:

  • Monday-Back
  • Tuesday-Legs
  • Wednesday-Chest
  • Thursday- Day off
  • Friday-Shoulders
  • Saturday-Arms
  • Sunday-Deadlifts(In the morning)

Then I workout Monday night to give me proper rest so I'm not overtraining.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I eat clean 6 days out of the 7. I eat a lot of Tuna and Oatmeal, I mix then two together about 3 times daily. (I get a lot of compliments about that.) I eat a lot of chicken and brown rice. Protein shakes are a big help for my higher calorie intake days. I drink a lot of milk. Usually 2 cups a day and on Friday I usually go through a half gallon. Drink plenty of water. I drink 2-3 gallons a day. You'll never see me walking without my gallon of water!

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Creatine has giving me good gains. Glutamine has given me great gains. With Glutamine, I get up every night at 3 AM to take 5 grams. I just feel as though I need something in me halfway through the night. ZMA has also worked real well for me.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Bodybuilding is the greatest thing on this planet! I love it. There is nothing like going to the gym and tearing your muscles apart. Bodybuilding makes me feel good. Being at the gym, getting the compliments. I love when I eat and I hear "How can you eat that?" In my mind that means that bodybuilding isn't easy and is only for the determined.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan on doing many, many shows in the future. I plan on doing Teen Nationals when I am 19 years old. I still got awhile, so there is no excuse for me not to win! My next show coming up is on April 3rd, 2004.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Keep at it! "Strive for the impossible to be the best possible," as the "King" would say. Always take negative criticism and turn it into positive production. Remember, don't let anyone hold you back. Also, find someone that won't hold you back. That's why I have my girlfriend now, she helps me out a lot with everything! Thank you!
