How Did You Get Started?

When I was in grade 8 a group of us (MikeeT, Ian, Adam, Jere, Dave, and Gav) would get to the gym almost everyday. There weren't many things to do in my home town....so I'd usually go back to the gym a couple more times that day.

I started lifting weights for the same reasons most athletes do, to strengthen my other sports. A few years later I was unable to compete in Track (long distance) because I had lost my flexibility, as well as hockey. I stuck with baseball and would continue to train in the offseasons. The weight training gave me power and agility for baseball, and would help me when playing with Team Canada at the Big League World Series in South Carolina. I'm going to stick with both sports, and would like the thank my Dad for the amazing amount of time he puts into the community and coaching. So...Thanx Dad! :)

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

  • Monday - Chest/Forearms
  • Tuesday - Legs/Abs
  • Wednesday - Triceps/Forearms
  • Thursday - Biceps/Abs
  • Friday - Back/Forearms
  • Saturday - Shoulders/Traps/Abs
  • Sunday - Cardio/light workout
I'm not a fan of taking a day off. If you fuel your body properly with the correct amount of protein/carbs/fat than that day for recuperation should not be needed. I mean you grow when you're asleep right? So why then when your awake would you take a day off? You're missing out on training time. I dunno that's what I think...

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Whey Protein, Creatine, Tribulus. Also multivitamins and protein bars. When training for a competition I just stick with the whey protein/multivitamin. I stay lean during the off-season so fat burners aren't needed.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I believe the most dominant effect bodybuilding has is that it cannot be taken away from you. It involves a lot of heart, determination, and will power to succeed through pain. I give pain when I'm in the gym and love the feeling of sore muscles the next day (an excuse for a massage ;).

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

What I really want to do this year is gain a lot of experience so I can be prepared for my last year Junior next season. But in the mean-time I will be heading to Hamilton July 5th for the World Qualifier's. From there I'll have a month off then start dieting again for Nationals which are to be held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan September 20th.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Think like tomorrow will never come, the next guy is training even harder, and you want this more than anything. Gain a love for the sport and it's all up hill from there.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Sure Arnold is entertaining, but the guys I admire the most are Shawn Ray, Lee Priest, and my favorite Frank Zane!
