I started training my freshman year in high school when I was on the highschool wrestling team. Being a part of the wrestling team is what introduced me to the gym. During my four years on the team I began to fall in love with the weight room. When I graduated and went off to college, that’s when I began to take my training to the next level.
Biggest mistake was my huge ego and my belief that I knew everything about training. I was so closed-minded and trained my ego instead of my body.
My biggest tip to staying consistent would be to find your purpose. Those who have a strong purpose for what they do will stick to the plan of action because they want it bad enough. A weak purpose lacks consistency.
Absolutely, I generally listen to rock/metal music during my workouts. Right now, I am currently listening to bands such as Disturbed, 3 Days Grace, Crossfade, and Trapt.
I think about something that severely pisses me off. Could be anything.
My training regimen is planned day by day. It all depends on how I am feeling that day.
My nutritional regimen stays the same unless I make adjustments along the way. I generally cook in bulk. So I prep my meals for 3-4 days then I’ll prep my meals again once I get through the 3 – 4 days.
Inside the gym: Being able to teach/ assist people on training.
Outside the gym: Being able to inspire others to achieve their goals whether it be fitness related, work related, school related, etc.
I generally stay lean year round.
To be honest, I do very little cardio. Cardio of choice is HITT training on a Stairmaster or bike.
