What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

BCAA has given me the greatest gains. I started taking it when I was dieting for one of my competitions and within the first week I increased all of my weights I was working out with by 5 to 10 lbs. I also put on about a pound of muscle in the first week and a half.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because the amount of hard work and dedication you put in to it will determine the results you get out of it. I love the three biggest parts of bodybuilding which consist of eating right, lifting, and the discipline it takes for the bodybuilding lifestyle.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Plan you meals out for the day ahead of time to make sure you are getting the necessary nutrition your body needs from day to day.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Brad Warner from Studio 22 where I train and work in Muncie, IN. He has been my mentor through my entire bodybuilding career.

He helps me in every aspect of bodybuilding from my diet to my workouts. He also has the most insane striations throughout his whole body which I would love to have.
