How Did You Get Started?

As a teenager, my brother was a competing in shows and I use to help him prepare. I used weight training to get ahead in sports and I loved the results. Therefor, I continue to workout and started to compete.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I rarely stick to one workout plan. During the offseason I try to get strong so I do a more intense but short routine, usually a three day split (day 1: chest, delts & tri's; day 2: legs; day 3: back, trap & bi's) with one day of cardio. In preparation for a contest I do a four day split (day 1 chest & tri's, day 2 quads & bi's; day 3: delts & calves; and day 4: back & hams). With three days of cardio.
