How did you get into bodybuilding? I had a friend in college named Aaron Smith who had competed as a teenager, and we trained together. He talked me into doing my first contest. I won the teenage class at the Mr. Canton, and from there I knew I wanted to keep competing.

Who inspired you when you were starting out? Early on I saw “Pumping Iron” and was fascinated by Arnold. I said to myself, I want to look like that guy. Later I saw pictures of Jay Cutler, and he was so much bigger. So I said, I changed my mind—I want to look like that guy!

Favorite bodypart to train: Back

Favorite exercise: Deadlifts

Least favorite exercise: Dumbbell kickbacks

Best bodypart: Arms

Most challenging bodypart: Legs, but I’ve brought them up quite a bit recently.

Obstacles overcome: Years ago I witnessed my friend accidentally kill his brother with a gun. I was traumatized, and lifting was one thing that helped me stop dwelling on that incident.

Do you have a philosophy that guides you? Bodybuilding is not a hobby; it’s a way of life.

How do you stay motivated? I work hard to maintain a positive attitude at all times. I see things going the way I want them to, whether it’s training or work, and that keeps me on track and working toward my goals.

How would you describe your training style? I started using the FST-7 training system just four months ago, and already I’m seeing very significant improvements. The combination of heavy straight sets and the volume pumping work really does give you the best of both worlds.

Training split:

Monday: Abs, chest, cardio x 25 minutes

Favorite clean meal: 12 ounces top-round steak with sweet potato and broccoli

What’s your favorite MuscleTech Hardcore Pro supplement, and why? The one I use the most and love is Nitro-Tech Hardcore Pro. It’s a huge help in getting the protein that I need every day. After every workout I have 2 1/2 scoops with a serving of Cell-Tech Hardcore, and I can feel the recovery process kicking in immediately.

Goals in the sport: I’m still young, and I haven’t won any big titles yet, but my goal is to become an IFBB Pro. I know I have the potential.
