How and when did you start training?

I started sports back in 1994 and started bodybuilding in 2004.

What mistakes did you make as a newbie?

Now I realize that my training process consisted of some errors. I strongly recommend that as soon as you decide to build your physique, turn to professionals so you don't make unnecessary mistakes!

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

Only a clear plan of action makes champions... Champions!

Do you listen to music whilst training?

I train in different rooms and there is a variety of music that usually plays in the background, but during cardio I can not do without music, or rather without audio books.

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

I think of how my rivals are training right now!

How far ahead do you plan and prepare ahead your
nutrition and training if at all?

The longer the better sometimes even 1 year!

What are you most proud of?

I am especially proud of my family and my family are proud of me!

Do you bulk and cut or stay lean year round?

All depends on my objectives.  Of course I want to stay in shape all year round, but I find it can be bad for my progress. I don't do it to impress the girls, I do it to beat the best physique athletes in the world.

What types of cardio do you do?

I use many variations for my cardio work - Stepmill, cycling, track, working out outdoors, elliptical. I get in the zone when I do cardio, duration is usually between 30 minutes to an hour.

What is your training routine like?

My latest plan is to reduce my bodyfat percentage. So everything concerning my diet, exercise, recovery and supplementation is orientated towards this objective!

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

My contest prep diet consists of a transition to natural sources of 
proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Who are your favourite athletes, bodybuilders
or fitness models?

I have great respect for all the athletes that ever came on the scene, it's a lot of work! My idols are Frank Zane, Flex Wheeler and Oksana Grishina.

What supplements do you use if any?

I use - BCAA, glutamine, whey protein, multivitamins, and omega 3-6-9.

What tips would you give to anyone wanting
to get CutAndJacked?

  1. Set a goal, set a clear date and go for it.
  2. If you do not know how to achieve results find a professional who understands and knows how to achieve it.
  3. If you have reached your goal, do not stop, set another and another and another!
