VITAL STATS

How Did You Get Started?

I went to a show to support some guys from my old gym and I was bitten by the bug. I just HAD to see if I could compete with some of the guys I saw.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?

In the off season, particularly this current one, I am sticking with a clean, high calorie, nutrient rich variety of foods. I manipulate my high glycemic carbs so that they are ingested right before and after training and the rest of the day I opt for slow burning clean carbs. I have kept cardio in my daily routine and as a result my appetite is pretty voracious. I eat every 2-2 1/2 hours.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

BCAA's + Glutamine by Beverly International, Beverly's multi-vitamins, along with various green tea extract, Carnitine, omega 3 fish oils, CLA's, protein powers, and Nitric oxide supplements were the mainstay of my supplementation program. I also found some of the ephedra based products I found on BB.com to be very useful in getting leaner.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because it demands that you martial your passions for food, socializing and any other non-productive distractions and submit to the exacting science of dieting, training, posing and sleeping that results in the physique you want to present. You over come temptation, frustration, ridicule, ignorance of the sport, stares, and monetary set backs so that for a few fleeting minutes on that one day, you can shine on stage and smile as if you just didn't endure 16 or more weeks of pure hell. And then you do it again and again and again. What's not to love? I mean, that's normal...right?

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Every one finds a way to compete. Don't forget those who played an active role in helping with cooking, posing, and training. More importantly, don't forget those who got out of your way and allowed you to do those things and accepted the sport because it made you happy.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?
