How and when did you start training?

I started training about 9 years ago, it all started casually, I remember my friends who invited me to go and train with them... and there was born a great passion that made me what I am now.

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

I made many mistakes, but it is the mistakes I made that will lead me to give the best of me and above all not to make the same mistakes anymore, besides being always fascinated by the knowledge of this sport and then apply it to myself.

We know consistency is key, what tips would you give to anyone struggling to stay consistent?

The main advice I can give you is to be patient and always persevere if you believe in something, do not let yourselves be conditioned by what they can tell you to try to stop you or stop you from reaching your dreams.

Do you listen to music whilst training?

Oh yes, for me it is essential in my training because it helps me to completely isolate myself and stay focused, most of the time I listen to electronic music

What do you think about when you have to dig deep and push out that last rep?

What I think most of the time, is the awareness of pushing myself beyond my limit, always surpassing myself and failing that last repetition would be like wasting all the training.

Do you follow a particular nutrition protocol?

I do not follow standardized nutritional protocols, but I rely more on a carbohydrate cyclization always in relation to how my body reacts and my metabolism.

Do you bulk and cut or stay lean year-round?

Until today I have never done a real bulk because I was lucky enough to have a good ability to build muscle, but I think that in 2020 I will experience a real bulk season.

What is your training routine like?

My training routine varies a lot according to the objectives and the period.  I cycle large muscle groups with minor muscle groups to always give different stimuli to the body.

What is your nutrition/diet like when trying to get in peak condition?

As done since the beginning, my diet to reach my "best" condition is mainly based on sources of carbohydrates as "clean as possible" proteins minimizing their biological alterations as much as possible.

Who are your favorite people in the fitness industry?

Difficult to make specific names because there are many I admire all those athletes who in addition to the goal of fitness that can be of different aspects, also manage to build their own family which I think is one of the most significant goals of life.

What supplements do you use if any?

As a supplement, omega-3 multi-vitamins are never lacking and I find myself very well using a mix between dextrin cycle and a vegetable hydrolyzed protein as a post-workout, as well as other molecules that I insert according to my psycho-physical needs.

What top 3 tips would you give to anyone wanting to get CutAndJacked and achieve their ideal physique?

  1. Have a goal and don't let the defeats stop you! Failure will help you to reach higher and higher.
  2. Never let others tell you what you can or can't do, when you set in motion actions other than what people are used to seeing in the ordinary or something they wouldn't even be able to start, they will try in every way to hinder you or to stop you, the only people you must have by your side are those who respect you and support you, do not be afraid to let go of who would be just a anchor for you and your goal.
  3. Always stay yourself, do not let yourself be changed by success or failure, and always respect those you face because each of us face a challenge or fears to which we are not aware. Do good and you will receive good.
