How Did You Get Started?
I started weight lifting the summer going into my freshman year in High School. Weight lifting interested me because I was only 5'8" and 150 lbs. I needed some kind of advantage when football season came around. The bigger I got the more confidence and skill I seemed to have.
I also began lifting weights and getting in shape because I was diagnosed with a rare condition known as Recurrent Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction. This means that blood has a hard time pumping up through my body back to my head. I started working out because without a toned/strong abdomen and other muscles the blood would have an even harder time reaching my head.
This would cause me to become lethargic and would have a very hard time moving, even around the house. I have worked through my recurring symptoms even while I workout because with this problem in my body I get light headed and have a high chance of vomiting or fainting. I work through this though and am so used to constantly feeling close to complete exhaustion when I exert myself that most people around me rarely notice. In fact, I continue playing football and excel in the high school level.
What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
I lift 5 days a week for several hours.
Sample Training Week:
Tuesday - Legs, Abs, Shoulders
Wednesday - Back, Arms, Forearms
Thursday - Legs, Abs, Shoulders
Friday - Chest, Arms
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I've never really had a nutrition plan, but I do eat the right things. Getting plenty of protein is crucial for me because of the amount of lifting I do. It's also good to eat your vegetables and other non-fatty foods to give yourself a more cut look.
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
I take no supplements. All natural!
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love bodybuilding for many reasons. I love the reactions I get from people when they see me working out. I love the confidence it gives me. I even love the rush I get while I'm lifting, it's a great feeling. Bodybuilding is also the perfect way to stay disciplined and focused on your goals because you have to be smart about what you're doing in the weight room to get real gains. Plus you have to stay dedicated and lift for a long time, which is the real thing people underestimate when they think about starting to lift.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I would like to do several things involving weightlifting. I could either keep working out and hope for a future in football, I could join a weightlifting team at my future college, or I could pursue my desire to be a personal trainer.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
My tip would be to find a way to motivate yourself and keep going. Sometimes the hardest part of lifting is getting up to go to the gym, but if you find an interest that drives you to do something you are more motivated to do it. The same is true about lifting.
