Musclebound 14-Year-Old BodySpace User!


[ BodySpaceAdmin ] Where are you from, and how long have you been working out?

    thebeast1: I am from the Detroit area, in Michigan, USA. I have been working out for about one year to 1½ years seriously. I started originally playing with weights when I was about 12, so two and a half years ago. As my knowledge increased, so did my intensity and my drive.

[ BSA ] How did you first find out about BodySpace and

    thebeast1: I often browse through sites on the Internet, and came across this one a while back. I found the information on the site to be very useful, with all the articles and the forum. I stuck around. After I had been on for awhile, I found Bodyspace, and started using that as well.

[ BSA ] Your profile mentions that you went from 95 pounds to 180 pounds in about 3 years. How did you accomplish that?

    thebeast1: I did that through dedication and determination. I really put my heart and soul into everything I do, especially my lifting. I follow a diet and weightlifting regimen, to make sure I achieve my goals. It's a simple theory: calories in vs. calories out.

[ BSA ] What did it feel like to reach your 10-month goal in only 4 months?

    thebeast1: To reach my goal in only 4 months felt really good. The fat I put on was obviously higher than it would have been had I taken that long, but I am very pleased with the results. It's always a good feeling when you accomplished something you worked so hard for!

A Successful Bulking Phase!

[ BSA ] How did you decide upon Bill Starr's 5×5 workout program? Where did you find out about it?

    thebeast1: I found Bill Starr's 5×5 program on the Internet. I'm always looking for new programs and such to try out. It looked like a solid routine, and I am pleased with what I got out of it. Strength and size gains, what more could I ask for?

[ BSA ] So, you're bulking right now, right? How many calories per day do you consume?

    thebeast1: Day in day out, I shoot to consume 4,000 calories a day. Sometimes I do not reach this, sometimes I exceed this, but regardless my intake is always near 4,000.

[ BSA ] What's your favorite part or feature of BodySpace?

    thebeast1: My favorite aspect of BodySpace is the fact that you can interact with other bodybuilders. You can meet other people with similar goals, with the same passion. It's good to know you aren't alone.

[ BSA ] Have you ever considered competing yet?

    thebeast1: Yes, I have. I want to compete sometime in the upcoming future, when I am around 16 years old, give or take. It would be a great experience, and get me out there and recognized.

[ BSA ] What do you want to be when you grow up?

    thebeast1: We are doings things like this in school right now. Some of the possible careers I am looking into include a personal trainer, a physical therapist, or other related jobs. My other alternative is to make it far in the bodybuilding world!

[ BSA ] Well, I'd say you're already on the right track!! Smiley Who is your favorite bodybuilder?

    thebeast1: Thanks! My favorite bodybuilder... It is hard to choose just one! If I was forced to pick just one, I would say Lee Priest. He is massive, and has one the funniest personalities I have ever seen. Especially on the forums, some of his responses just kill me! He is definately an inspiration.

[ BSA ] If you were stranded on a deserted island with only one supplement, what would it be?

    thebeast1: If I was stranded with just one supplement, I would have to pick a multivitamin. For starters, I wouldn't be terribly worried about muscle loss at that point, but more or less my health. Many diseases can come about from a deficiency in vitamins and minerals.

    thebeast1: Thanks again! I am 14 years of age, and I will turn 15 in mid-July. My biceps at this time are approximately 16 inches (cold), and around 16½ inches (pumped).

Huge Teen Biceps!

[ BSA ] Any final comments or anything else you want to tell other teens?

    thebeast1: My advice to other teens is to learn as much as you possibly can. Knowledge is power, especially in the sport of bodybuilding. Knowing correct form could someday save you from a potential injury. Keep the drive, always find ways to stay motivated, and never give up! Consistency is key.

[ BSA ] Thank you, Josh, for your time and your outstanding profile on BodySpace! I hope you'll get a ton of hits and positive feedback because of this feature. Best of luck on your goals!
