How Did You Get Started?

I got started working out when I started wrestling last year. I was pathetic. I weighed about 145 lbs and was 5 foot 11 inches. I knew that I had to gain some muscle if I wanted to make the varsity team. Ever since then I became addicted.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Wake up every day at 5:30 and get a 30 minute session in. I usually do 20 pullups just to warm-up then work whatever needs to be worked. I NEVER, in any of my sessions, work my chest and arms at the same time. Then I end with 20 pullups.

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I work out at my school. I start my work out with 20 pull ups then work out whatever is not sore. I usually alternate Mondays as my chest and ab day. Wednesday as my leg day. And Friday as my arms and whatever I feel needs to be worked out day. I always end with 20 pull ups.

At home I do a light work out every day just to keep my muscles warm. I begin with 20 pull ups and work whatever is not sore and that I feel needs to be worked out. Then I end with 20 pullups.

The nutrition plan that has worked best for me has been the 3000 calorie per day diet. Not really a diet but will definitely make you gain some weight. I also take the supplements listed above.

The supplement that has given me the greatest gain was creatine. It worked like magic. I started working out at 145 and in only 1 month I gained a staggering 20 lbs. It was amazing.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

One tip I would give other bodybuilders is do not over work yourself. About six months ago I worked out 3 times a day and hit a stump. I could not make my weight over 175. Then what I did was lower my work outs from 3 every day to 2 every other day and I bulked up pretty quick.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

My favorite bodybuilder is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Obviously (LOL).
