How Did You Get Started?

I started working out as a 5 foot tall and 89lb freshman in high school. By senior year I was 5' 7", 170lb training and competing in powerlifting. I won the Indiana overall best powerlifter in 1997 and placed 3rd in the nation at 19 years old. After working a couple of years as personal trainer in a health club, I decided to try bodybuilding and found that I enjoyed it.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

I built a good base and large legs from powerlifting workouts and a bodybuilding diet. I lift heavy weight with low reps and the reps are slow and deliberate. Then I change it up with light weight and high reps. I always say, keep changing up what you are doing to avoid plateaus.
