How Did You Get Started?
I grew up watching Professional Wrestling and wanted to be like the bigger guys that I saw. I started lifting at the end of my junior year of high school at a scrawny 100 pounds. Pretty soon all I found myself doing was training to be bigger and better, and I eventually got hooked onto bodybuilding.

What Workout Plan Worked Best For You?
I basically try to stick to free weights and limit the amount of machines that I use. I rely mainly on Deadlifts, Squats, and Bench Presses to add a lot of my mass, and I also incorporate supplementary exercises to fill in what those exercises don't. I don't have a specific routine or rep scheme that I follow, I go by how my muscles feel and what they can do on the specific day. I have found that my legs and chest are more stubborn than the rest of my body, so I alternate training them twice every other week.
I train five days a week. I train low volume with a lot of intensity. I take all of my working sets to failure, and then use techniques like drop-sets, rest pause, etc. Usually three exercises per body part, where every different exercise works a different part of the muscle, to stimulate the most muscle fibers.
I do a couple of warm-up sets before my working sets...
What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I have a really fast metabolism so I take in anywhere from 3,000- 4,000 calories per day. For my protein I stick to the basic tuna, tilapia, top round, drumsticks, and eggs. For my carbohydrates I stick to rice, and pasta. Even though I hate them I also have veggies with every meal, and I rely on some naturally fats including olive oil and peanut butter.
- Meal 1: 2 cups high fiber cereal, and Myo Lean Shake
- Meal 2: 1 cup yogurt mixed w/ 1 scoop of protein, and 2 tspns peanut butter
- Meal 3: Myo Lean Shake and 1 cup raspberries
- Meal 4: 8 oz top round and 2 cups pasta
- Meal 5: (Pre-workout): 4 tspns honey, and 1 scoop protein
- Meal 6: (Post-workout): 1 scoop protein and 2 tspns peanut butter
- Meal 7: 8 oz sirloin and 2 cups pasta with 2 tspns olive oil
- Meal 8: Myo Lean Shake
What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?
Why do you love Bodybuilding?
I love bodybuilding because it gives me a new challenge everyday. There is constantly something that you have to tweak or totally change all together to be the best bodybuilder that you can. Bodybuilding has also given me a great deal of pride and accomplishment with the transformation that my body has undertaken.
What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?
I would like to achieve my natural pro-card somewhere down the road, and take my body as far as it can possibly go without any additives. I am also studying to become a personal trainer and a nutritionist so I can help other people live healthy lifestyles.
What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?
One tip that I would give to other bodybuilders is to take it one day at a time. Don't expect to put on 100 pounds in a year, be reasonable and you will achieve your ultimate goal in time. Also don't let other people discourage you from what you want.
