How Did You Get Started?

I began my bodybuilding in my garage with an old rusted bench press and some variable weight dumbbells. At age 12 skateboarding was my hobby previous to bodybuilding so I would skateboard for a few minutes with my friends and then run the garage to bust out a couple sets. After a couple months of this I began to notice incredible results and eventually got tired of skateboarding. I used my extra energy on beginning an actual workout plan instead of just whatever was available. At age 14 I got my first gym membership and saw some big guys in the gym and said to myself, "I want to be really big." I have never looked back since.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Changing workout routines on a monthly to weekly basis is entirely necessary. You see, the human body is smart and becomes used to whatever you do: say if you're hardcore dieting - you must throw in a cheat day to trick the body into believing that these fats will be in your everyday nutritional intake.

This will in turn cause the body to burn the little fat you take in instead of depositing it. The same is true with training. Muscles do not want to become larger and instead want to become accustomed to the routine. Changing at least the order in which the 'routine' is done will prevent this from occurring.

Another highly important aspect of training to preventing overtraining. I see people come in the gym and do the same typical excersises three times a week and say to me "Ryan, what am I doing incorrectly?" I tell them they are impoverishing their poor muscles and to put more days in between their beloved sets of bench press and curls.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

The best nutritional plan is one that has 2.5-3 grams of protein per pound of bodybuilder with this increasing slightly as you cut your carbs from 3 per lb of bb all the way to a half as needed for contest prep. Fat being slightly higher off season also to lube up the hinges.

A specific meal to meal regimen is not needed as long as protein is consumed every 2 hours with not too much being derived from artificial sources and a good meal is necessary post workout.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Protein! Protein!! PROTEIN! This is what muscle consists of entirely so of course it gave me everything I have on my bones. Also nitric oxide is great for vascularity.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

Bodybuilding is great because it allows you to make yourself better mentally because of a boost in confidence from physical improvement. Training is the best stress relief in existence. People drink and smoke and eat bad food to relieve stress also. This is a very short term relief that is contradictive. When you drink or smoke you make your body less healthy which makes you stress or feel bad which causes you to... Yep, you guessed it, smoke another cancer stick or put down some more liquid liver pain.
