At the beginning of my journey all I wanted to do was just get bigger, and as a teenager around the age of 15, diet and exercise became a bit of an issue, this led to me becoming overweight. I joined the local gym but I had very little knowledge of how to do things properly. I was mainly lifting heavy weights without correct technique or form. Each training session in the gym was nothing but a competition as to who could lift the most between me and my friends. This style of training combined with a lack of knowledge led to all sorts of injuries and problems.
Have a goal in mind. Once that ones completed, create another. Keep setting challenges for yourself to make you push harder each time.
For me, my music of choice is hip-hop from the 90’s. Nas, Biggie, and Jay Z. They don’t make 'em like they used too!
Normally I just tell myself to man up. But when I’ve been shaking with flu, an illness and a 2-3 hour gym sessions ahead...The faces of my loved ones cheering for me on stage motivates me more than anything.
Depends what stage I'm at. If a comp is nearing my training is planned weeks in advance and my food prep is done daily.
Bodybuilding saved me in many ways. I was living a party lifestyle with a lot of spare time and too much energy, with no constructive way to channel my enthusiasms I was heading downhill, fast. I found myself heading towards all kinds of trouble. So turning my life around is what I'm most proud of.
I like to stay lean all year round. I feel that being a fitness model is a lifestyle.
I do LISS cardio for around 1 hour each day.
Off-season my training is usually weights 3 times per week with cardio and abs on the days in between.
Monday – Chest &back
Friday – delts and arms
8 weeks out my training changes and becomes more intense.
AM high rep full body workout (3-4 x 15-20) followed by cardio
Some days I may only have to do 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps however some days I may not be able to fatigue or contract the muscle the way I would like and may have to do more, as many as 8 sets in some cases. The reps also vary sometimes as high as 25-30 if I feel it necessary to achieve what I want from that particular exercise. The amount of exercises also varies. This also applies to the amount of exercises per body part. Sometimes I may have to do as many as 7 or 8.
When reaching peak condition I slowly drop carbs and rise the fats keep the proteins high at all times!
Has to be Floyd Mayweather. Not only is he amazing to watch inside the ring but is the smartest man in sport. Period.
