Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Stewart Peppers! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I started lifting weights at 13 years old, my sophomore year in high school, to stay in shape for wrestling and to get stronger as well. In about a month I gained 10 pounds of lean mass. From that point on I was addicted to the gym. My buddy mentioned that I should consider competing in a bodybuilding competition. I have been competing ever since. I won the Junior Light Weight at the Greater Knox classic in August 2008.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I do basic compound movements as heavy as I can without sacrificing proper form. I pyramid the weight going heavier as I progress through my workout.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I love whey protein and BCAA powder. My favorite protein is syntha 6 because the time release keeps me from going catabolic.
