How Did You Get Started?

I attended Valley Forge Military Academy and decided I wanted to get stronger and next thing I knew I was in the gym just about everyday and couldn't get enough of it, after that one of my friends asked me if I wanted to do a show and that's when I actually got into competing.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?

Pyramids - Increasing the weight with each new set while decreasing the number of reps. The weight is then reduced and the reps increased.
Drop Sets - Also known as strip sets, drop sets involve the immediate reduction of weight between sets with no rest. This will thoroughly burn out a muscle.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Protein is definitely the foundation for any gains made, but other supplements I really like are Black Powder which allows me to maintain my intensity in the gym and L-Glutamine for recovery and help with sore muscles.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because it is a great healthy hobby that leaves you looking and feeling great. Its something you actually see and can measure gains in and hitting the gym everyday feels amazing once you get into the lifestyle, and Its my favorite part of the day when I get to go get a pump and know that its time to just lift some weights and clear my head.

What Motivates You To Follow A Healthy Lifestyle?

What motivates me to follow a healthy lifestyle is my love for the sport of bodybuilding and feeling great all the time, also I go to boot camp August 10th, 09 for the Marines which requires a good level of fitness.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

Its fun and it builds mental and physical strength which I think are three very important things to have in your life, plus who doesn't like being jacked?

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Get a workout partner, they give you the motivation you need on days that you're lacking and they give a healthy competition to each day in the gym. I find that a workout partner is probably just as important as protein so make sure you have a knowledgeable, fit workout partner.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Tom Platz, Frank Zane.

What Features Do You Use On

I use's SuperSite for all of its articles and message boards which help me to switch up my techniques constantly and stay up to date on the latest methods and sciences behind supplements. I also use the store to buy all of my contest prep products and I used BodySpace while I was at Valley Forge because it was a great way to stay motivated and it tracked my progress with a simple easy to use interface.
