How Did You Get Started?

I started bodybuilding after boxing when I was about 15 years old (this will tell you my age). After only about 3 months of training the owner of the gym asked me if I would like to compete in the under 16's local NABBA show. I jumped at the chance and took a 4th place out of a line up of 18 competitors. I loved every minute of it and from that day I was bitten by the bodybuilding bug. I went on to win a lot more shows including the WABBA Jr. Europe and a twice runner up in the Class 2 NABBA Mr. Britain.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I only train each bodypart once per week so I can blitz it because it will have a week to recover.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

I've seen my best gains off of Maximuscle Promax and Creatine and good quality Whey Protein.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

The thing that I love most about bodybuilding is the fact that everyone can see the results that you have achieved because you carry them around with you 24/7.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

My future plans are to win the NABBA Britain and then maybe try the light heavys so long as I can stay healthy.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

ALWAYS take a post workout protein drink within 30 mins of finishing your workout as the body can absorb more during this time! At least 50-60 grams of good quality Whey Protein.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

I have always admired Kevin Levrone and also Ernie Tailor.
