Why You Got Started?

Since I was a child, I suffered from asthma. I started going to the gym to keep my body healthy and to look just borderline fit. I was weak and did not see any gains until 2 months later. I did not know how to eat right I just eat anything in sight. Ha Ha. And I got really fat.

2 Weeks Out From The 2006 Nationals.

It was until I saw this picture of this guy, Ryan Kho. He was shredded. And that was how I got bitten by the iron bug. I competed for the first time after only 7 months of training and didn't place in the nationals. A year later, I won the nationals (2007).

How You Did It?

Like most people, I started reading bodybuilding articles. Asking for advice here and there. And from the people who are more experienced than I am.

I began to change my diet, and to switch my diet plans according to how I look. The mirror's a bodybuilder's best friend isn't it? Some days I would go high on carbs and some days moderate. Depends what I am doing on that particular day.
