How Did You Get Started?
In high school, I was a chubby little computer nerd with a pot belly, narrow shoulders, and crooked glasses to boot. I got picked on by the 'cool' kids and didn't get a lot of dates. So I started lifting weights and soon transformed myself into a muscular computer nerd!
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
A good periodization program is what works for me - I lessen the weight I use and do more sets/reps, then work my way back up to, and past where I once was. Then I lessen the weight again and repeat the process. The only thing I really vary is my training split. Here is my current schedule: Tuesday - chest, back, abs; Friday - arms, shoulders, legs. Sometimes I split this into 4 days. When training for definition, I just lift to get pumped up and concentrate more on diet, cardio, and working on my tan.
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
I take a multivitamin, vitamin C, chromium, and a whey-protein shake in the morning, a carbohydrate drink with glucose polymers and fructose before my workouts, and whey protein in the evening and post-workout. I have also had good results with creatine, though I use it sparingly.
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
Bodybuilding gives me results that I, and others can see first-hand. There's no better feeling than when people praise you for your hard work. And it feels even better when you're natural, like me. Other than that, it's a great way to work off work-related stress, and to meet interesting people.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I plan to get back into competition next year, with a little more size and definition and a phenomenal posing routine.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
The key to growth is nutrition, rest, and injury prevention; listen to your body and do what common sense dictates.
Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?
Lee Labrada, since he's about my height and has the type of physique I hope to one day attain.
