How and When Did You Start Training?
I hate to say it but training for me started because of an ex girlfriend.
We broke up on January 2008 and I was left frustrated and sought a way to vent. I heard about weight training and anger complimenting each other. Plus, a couple of my friends had just started lifting and were making significant changes to their physiques.
I was sold into giving training a shot and haven’t looked back since.

What Is Your Approach On Nutrition?
I have a fairly fast metabolism and can stay lean almost effortlessly. I don’t watch any macros but protein. That means I eat basically whatever I want but ensure that I’m getting an adequate amount of protein (1-2g/lb) for muscle building. When going for an ultra shredded look I’ll dive into keto for a month or two.
Heres a day of eating (excluding snacks in between meals such as cookies and chips):
- Breakfast: None
- Pre-workout: 2 scoops C4, 2 scoops Con-Crēt
- Workout (sipping on 3 scoops of Scivation Xtend)
- Meal 1: Pwo 2 scoops whey
- Meal 2: Taco Bell (XXL Steak Burrito and Beefy Crunch Burrito)
- Meal 3: 1 Scoop Whey and Hot Fudge Sundae Pop Tarts
- Meal 4: Double Whataburger with Fries, Powerade, and Cinnamon Roll
- Meal 5: 1 Scoop Whey
Obviously this isn’t what I eat everyday. It was a day of eating this week, but everything still fit into my calories and macros. Don’t stress over clean eating, it won’t last long.
What Supplements Do You Take?
I only take a few supplements, and they are:
Your #1 Tip To Get An Aesthetic Physique?
Figure out your body and adjust accordingly. Not everyone can have a relaxed diet like I do. Everyone’s body is different. Figure out what works for you (keto, carb cycling, dreamer diet) and take off.
