How did you get started with bodybuilding?
I got into lifting weights a bit in high school and worked out on and off until October 2008 when I decided I wanted to compete. My great friend and trainer at the time IFBB Pro John Simmons set me on the right track to success and has always been there for me.
Where does your motivation come from?
My motivation comes from pushing myself and many of the great people in my life that support me everyday to be the best I can possible be and giving it my all.
What is your training philosophy?
Its a life style, everyday you work to get better. You really have to devote all day everyday to the sport; from cooking and planning meals, to structuring training and rest times.
If you have to pick only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?
- Incline Dumbell Press
- Bent Over Rows
They are all power movements and im excited every time i get to do them. They are the exercises that bring huge gains.
When trying to cut down do you prefer to use HIIT or just normal cardio?
I do 20-45 mins on a treadmill at an incline of 10% at 2.8-3.0 mph and that’s about it. Sometimes I will do the stair mill depending on how I feel.
What is your philosophy on nutrition?
Most of your gains are made in the kitchen, the results you get are directly related to what you put into your diet. If you eat clean and put the right food in your body you will achieve greater results.
What are your favorite meals and foods?
Egg whites and oatmeal and yams
Favorite cheat food?
Cheeseburgers, fries and pizza
What supplements do you use that give you great results? How do you use them?
I love all of Muscletechs products. If i had to pick some favorites it would Hyrdoxycut, CellTech, and NitroTech. They are a major staple to my on and off season but don’t forget that diet is key.
