What Motivated You To Begin Training?
I started working out back in 2007. The drive started from many different things. One day while at the beach I had people teasing me because of how thin I was but instead of snapping I used it as a force of motivation. My father was a bodybuilder when he was younger also. To this day I work my ass off so I ca. Make my father proud and of course myself.
Tell us a little about your training philosophy:
Think of your body like clay, you wouldn’t rush it right? Instead you would take your time and mild it. Anytime your lifting you should be 100% focused on the muscle used. Every second of that eccentric tempo should be on your mind.
Tell us a little bit about your diet philosophy:
Quality over quantity, I’d rather get a few good meals then a bunch of horrible ones. The quality of your food shows not only in the gym but everywhere.
Please tell us about your competitive history and placings (if applicable):
One day I’ll stand In front of everyone and stand proud as I finally did it for my father.
Tell us about some of your short and long term goals:
Long term goal is to be 225 shredded. The short term goal is to get to 200.
Who do you look to for motivation and why?
Golden era bodybuilders give me the most motivation but Kai Greene holds a huge spot to.
What are some of the most difficult obstacles that you have had to overcome?
Diet, it’s not easy. Training is 100% and your diet is the other 100%
Tell us some of your pet peeves surrounding healthy life and the gym:
What is the number one piece of advice that you would give someone that looks to you for inspiration?
When your sitting there about to hit that weight and your doubting yourself remember why your here, we’re you have come from. Put that energy into that next lift.
Please share anything else you would like to say:
I’m 26 years old, love music (60s-70s) era. Learning to play a start right now. Just trying to live a peace filled life!
