How Did You Get Started?
Once I graduated high school in 2003 my organized athletic career was over. I met a couple guys at the gym where I train and they pushed me year after year to do a show. I went from 170lbs to 218 in 5 months (all natural). Then did some diet experimenting on my own to see if I might have any potential, I really liked what I saw.
I did my first show not long after that and took 2nd place in men's open (novice), then one week later 1st place in junior men's and 4th in middle weight men's. Now, in the off season I have been bulking to prepare my self for the next show I do. I want to move up a weight class which would be light heavy 177-197lbs and would like to be at the top of it.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
I really like the MaxOT workout regiment because it gets you in and out of the gym and builds muscle (in my experience) faster then any other program I have tried. Basically you're following a 6 to 8 set by 4-6 rep per muscle group, training only one muscle group a week.
This really allows you to destroy a muscle group then allows for proper recovery time. Since the workouts are so short and quick you don't walk out of the gym mentally drained and ready to crash. This program also helps set the tone for the rest of my day since I train in the morning.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
In the off season I try to consume as many calories in a day as possible. I follow a very high carbohydrate and moderate protein caloric intake, my fat is usually low, but I don't necessarily monitor it. My biggest meals are before a workout and then the next 4 hours after my workout.
During preparation for a contest my calories start out around 3100cals and each week I take 100cals out, until I reach 2000cals. Once I reach that point I evaluate my progress and either add or deplete carbs.
Typical day in the off season:
Meal 2 (post workout 1)
Meal 3 (post workout 2)
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love Bodybuilding because it keeps you young, relieves stress, and boosts your confidence.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
Right now I am in the off season and trying to put on 15-20 more lbs. I really want to do the next show at the light heavy weight class and come in around 193-195lbs. I am also working hard at landing a sponsorship with a supplement company. I would love to do promotions for a company in return for product.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
If you're an amateur bodybuilder that's doing very well, placing high and bringing home trophies, stay modest and humble.
