How Did You Get Started?

I grew up watching Professional Wrestling and wanted to be like the bigger guys that I saw. I started lifting at the end of my junior year of high school at a scrawny 100 pounds. Pretty soon all I found myself doing was training to be bigger and better, and I eventually got hooked onto bodybuilding.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I basically try to stick to free weights and limit the amount of machines that I use. I rely mainly on Deadlifts, Squats, and Bench Presses to add a lot of my mass, and I also incorporate supplementary exercises to fill in what those exercises don't. I don't have a specific routine or rep scheme that I follow, I go by how my muscles feel and what they can do on the specific day. I have found that my legs and chest are more stubborn than the rest of my body, so I alternate training them twice every other week.

I train five days a week. I train low volume with a lot of intensity. I take all of my working sets to failure, and then use techniques like drop-sets, rest pause, etc. Usually three exercises per body part, where every different exercise works a different part of the muscle, to stimulate the most muscle fibers.

I do a couple of warm-up sets before my working sets...

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

I have a really fast metabolism so I take in anywhere from 3,000- 4,000 calories per day. For my protein I stick to the basic tuna, tilapia, top round, drumsticks, and eggs. For my carbohydrates I stick to rice, and pasta. Even though I hate them I also have veggies with every meal, and I rely on some naturally fats including olive oil and peanut butter.

  • Meal 1: 2 cups high fiber cereal, and Myo Lean Shake
  • Meal 2: 1 cup yogurt mixed w/ 1 scoop of protein, and 2 tspns peanut butter
  • Meal 3: Myo Lean Shake and 1 cup raspberries
  • Meal 4: 8 oz top round and 2 cups pasta
  • Meal 5: (Pre-workout): 4 tspns honey, and 1 scoop protein
  • Meal 6: (Post-workout): 1 scoop protein and 2 tspns peanut butter
  • Meal 7: 8 oz sirloin and 2 cups pasta with 2 tspns olive oil
  • Meal 8: Myo Lean Shake

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Like my training I also try to keep my supplementation simple as well. I supplement with whey protein, creatine, amino acids, and my favorite NaNo Vapor.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because it gives me a new challenge everyday. There is constantly something that you have to tweak or totally change all together to be the best bodybuilder that you can. Bodybuilding has also given me a great deal of pride and accomplishment with the transformation that my body has undertaken.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I would like to achieve my natural pro-card somewhere down the road, and take my body as far as it can possibly go without any additives. I am also studying to become a personal trainer and a nutritionist so I can help other people live healthy lifestyles.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

One tip that I would give to other bodybuilders is to take it one day at a time. Don't expect to put on 100 pounds in a year, be reasonable and you will achieve your ultimate goal in time. Also don't let other people discourage you from what you want.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Kevin Topka, Lee Priest, Dorian Yates, Rusty Jeffers, and Branch Warren.
