How and when did you start training?

I was always a very active kid and I started weight training back in 2009.

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

There were not many pieces of information laying around about fitness and it took me some time to find my routine. It's great to seek advice from those who are more experienced.

I wish I would have sought that advice a little bit sooner.

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

It's a simple yet hard thing to do. If you planned to go train on any giving day, simply go. Never skip training and I promise the inner laziness will go away and you will start to be consistent.

Do you listen to music whilst training?

Usually underground hip-hop. Tech N9ne is my all-time favorite artist.

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

I think about my past when I was sick and I told myself: Once I recover from this sickness, I will put my heart and soul to push my body to its limits.

Do you follow a particular nutrition protocol?

Yes, I eat a whole plant-based diet which gives my body and especially my muscles all it needs without the need for any fitness related supplement.

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

Staying lean and gaining muscles is, in my opinion, the best way to build muscles.

What is your training routine like?

My goal is to shock my muscles. That’s why I train differently every new week. For example, I do bodyweight exercises in one week and do slow weight reps in the other week.

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

I never change my diet. I lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. Training and eating should always be done with sustainability in the back of your mind.

Find what works best for you all day and stick to it all year round.

Who are your favorite people in the fitness industry?

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nimai Delgado, and Nick Strength and Power are awesome.

What supplements do you use if any?

B12, Omega 3 and Vitamin D3 during winter.

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

1.  Stick to a whole plant-based food diet. Plants are the most nutritious foods on the planet and they usually are not kcals dense. Meaning you can eat a lot, while still losing fat and gain muscles.

2.  Our bodies and our muscles are mostly made out of water. So drinking quality water is a must.

3.  Be consistent and dedicated. Working out should never be looked like as a temporary commitment, it’s a lifestyle which should last and accompany you your whole life.
