Bodybuilding is a form a taxidermy.


When I was 14, I wanted to get bigger, just for the sake of it, no real reason. So I started working out by buying a bench press. I didn't start seriously getting into bodybuilding until after I got cut from the JV Baseball team. I wanted to get as big as I possibly could be the next year's tryouts, so I could hit with a lot more power. Now I am working out everyday, and now I have entered a few powerlifting competitions. I am still yet to of won any comps yet, but next season I hope to be able to win my first.
