As Long I can remember I was thinner than anyone in my class. I had no money for a gym membership, but when first I started working I ran to a gym to sign up. The feeling of lifting weights, getting a pump and gaining muscle... I fell in love.
I was clubbing too much… Almost every weekend. I drank too much and I hardly slept. I trained every muscle 6 times a week. Sometimes I spent 2-3 hours in the gym. Resting to recover had no interest to me!...But I have gained 10kg of muscle in 12 months so I guess it wasn’t too much of a mistake.
Bodybuilding is hard! If you want to do it right, you must know what you're getting into. Without discipline, you won’t achieve in this sport. It’s all about discipline. If you're not willing to be disciplined... it is not a sport for you!
I cannot train without music! Music is the best booster in the world for me! During my workouts I listen to Dutch House, a little bit of rock and motivational music. Music is the way I dig deep.
When I get to that point, I think that I will only grow if I overcome this hurdle. I think about my competitors who would continue and do 5 more reps. This is the way I push my body to the next level!
I have only bulked once in 6 years of training. I give my body what it needs to build muscle, and not much more. I have never found the need to bulk often.
I rarely do cardio because I diet all year round. When I do, it is usually low intensity on a treadmill.
My favourite bodybuilders are Ulisses Jr and Simeon Panda. Mind-blowing physiques! For me Ulisses has the most aesthetic physique in the world! Also Kai Greene and Rob Riches are 2 people who inspire me… Kai Greene has an unbreakable spirit.
1. Give yourself time! Your physique will not transform overnight!
2. If you are about to give up, remember why you started!
3. Train often and train hard, but don’t forget your friends!
