How Did You Get Started?

I have trained for about 6 1/2 years but never considered bodybuilding until last year when my father passed away. He was a very important role model in my life and he always wanted me to try bodybuilding. So I have and I love it!!

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I try so many different routines. My workout partner and I always vary our routines to stay motivated and try something new.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I think Amino Acids and the proper amount of protein (1 - 1 1/2 grams per lb body weight), carbohydrate, and fat intake has given me the greatest gains.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

It gives me the best sense of accomplishment I have ever experienced. I can always look in the mirror and see what I have accomplished. It also makes me desire to be better. I always try to identify and improve certain weak areas I have based on feedback from judges at competitions.!

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan to continue competing and hopefully enter a national competition in the next year. I also plan to make this a regular part of my life and become a motivational trainer to others.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Natural bodybuilding is the only long-term choice for being fit. Stay away from the "roids" and commit yourself to diet/nutrition, training, and positive thinking. That will make you the best that you can be!!
