When did you start training & why?I started training in 2009 while I was still in college because I needed something to do in between my long class breaks. So rather than work on my papers or doing homework like a normal college student I started spending all of my free time in the college gym.
Favorite MuscleMeds Supplement:Carnivor because I have a very hard time processing protein that’s made from dairy products such as whey proteins and Carnivor is made from real beef so I’m able to get the protein I need to keep me growing big.
Unique information about yourself:Before bodybuilding I was a very talented basketball player who had dreams of making it to the big league one day but I found bodybuilding and fell in love with the sport.
Describe your physique before you began lifting:Wow that’s a good question. As I mentioned above I was really into basketball growing up, so I was very athletically built. The position I played in basketball was point guard, so at the time I was no more than 146lbs.
Training Routine & Daily Diet
My workout consists of a 2 day split which means I train each body part twice a week. Most body parts are grouped together. For example, chest, shoulders and triceps are grouped together in one workout. As for my training style, I’m not your typical bodybuilder. I use very heavy weight and low reps when I train each body part. My sets range from 5 to 6 for each exercise and reps can be anywhere between 1 to 3.
My best lifts are as follows:
840 lb. Deadlift
810 lb. Squat
515 lb. Bench Press
My diet consists of 6 meals per day. These include a mixture of 8 oz. of protein from red and white meat with 1 cup of vegetables in each meal. My favorite vegetable is asparagus because it’s very healthy and it helps the body get read of harmful toxins. I have never focused on counting my caloric intake but if I had to estimate I would say its right around 8,000 to 9,000 a day.
