Do you remember the first time you
picked up a dumbbell?

The first time I picked up a dumbbell was when was about 9 years old in my dads shop...thinking to myself I want to be superman lol. I never picked weights back up till I entered the USMC in 2007.

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

I wanted to look so good I would over train consistently.

How do you manage to stay motivated and consistent?

By watching guys 200lbs plus and thinking to myself... I put up THAT same weight,... I love it. It’s an addiction to self-dedication to try and make your body perfect. As well as watching the body progress into becoming flawless.

How long do you usually spend in the gym?

I spend about 12 hours a week. I also work as a personal trainer

What are the biggest obstacles or setbacks
have you had to overcome in your life?

There are too many to say but most recent is knee injury in the Marines,
