I started lifting weights in high school to help play football in Louisville Ky. I continued to work out while playing football as a freshman at Kentucky State University. After that year was up, I entered the Navy in 1990 and continued my daily work-outs at the various Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities wherever I happened to be stationed.
My work-out routine changed after a fellow sailor mentioned that I should consider competitive body-building. I hooked up with the National Physique Commitee( the organization that coordinates and certifies all of the competitive bodybuilding competitions) and the AAU. Bodybuilding changed the way I approach weight-lifting, because it pushed up the intensity of my work-out.
I worked out 3 times a week at the Sterett Hall gym with different days devoted to different areas of my body award-winning physique.
My workout routine currently is on Mondays chest and biceps, and on Wednesdays quads and hamstrings. On Fridays it is back and biceps. I work on my abs every workout and calves three times a week. Cardio I do three hours a week.
My personal goal is to become a pro natural bodybuilder.
