I started lifting weights with my football team my freshman year in high school. I thought it was alright at first, and didn't really think anything of it. Once wrestling season came around, I realized how out of shape I was and I wanted to do something about it.
So I talked to my dad and he agreed to buy me the P90X workout DVDs. I loved it so much, the push, the diet, the transformation; that is when I was hooked. I would look forward to coming home from an intense wrestling or football practice to work out again. I completed P90X 3 times, and I started getting bored. I started lifting weights on my own at the local YMCA.
When I had a real gym to work out at, I really started to put on size. I love the feeling of being so sore you can't move for the next 3 days, nothing compares. My junior year in high school I quit wrestling to pursue bodybuilding. I found a good trainer, which really helped me improve. I competed for the first time when I was 17. I am currently training to play football in college, while lifting to put on size and training with a speed school to improve my overall athleticism.
