How and when did you start weight training?

I started training while playing sports in High School, I would do more boxing drills and endurance running, but the serious training came in College as I was trying to play football. I started a specialized program after reading about the Great Steve Reeves.

What makes did I make as a newbie?

I didn’t do cardio and my diet was not great lol.

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

Change your routine, don’t do the same chest, arm, back, ab or leg routine when you train these bodyparts. The body is a powerful, adaptable machine- it will get use to a specific program in a few weeks. Also, take a week off if you feel burned out, rest is the key and it will re-energize you and relight that burning desire!

Do you listen to music whilst training?

I have eclectic taste, so on days I have Tupac on the pod, 80’s POP, 80’s hip hop, lil Wayne, Leg days heavy metal( I know not a big fan, but it helps on leg days)

What is your training routine like?

One bodypart a day one week, then the next I may do two bodyparts a day. I perform many dropsets, supersets. My rep range will stay between 6 to 15 reps depending on the day and bodypart. I do cardio 4 to 5 days a week for 30 to 45 minutes moderate intensity! Sometimes I will workout at the park, play tennis or basketball. It’s important to me to look athletic and have flexibility.

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

Well it changes, it’s different from competition and shoot diet! I normally carb deplete to shock my metabolism for 5 days when getting ready to shoot. I do increase “healthy fats” when I’m low on carbs. I don’t eat carbs after 6pm when I’m dieting HARD! A gallon of water a day, lots of veggies, chicken and fish. I normally go as low as 30 grams of carbs for 5 to 7 days to get in peak condition. I stay lean year around so it doesn’t take long for me to get SLICED!! Oh yeah, I cut the sodium drastically!

Who are your favourite athletes, bodybuilders
or fitness models?

My all time favorite athletes, bodybuilders and fitness models are Steve Reeves,
Flex Wheeler, Sebastian Siegel and Gregg Avedon.

What supplements do you use if any?

Whey protein, CoQ10, BCAA, Glutamine and multivitamin/mineral,
sometimes Vitamin C and B complex

What top 3 tips would you give to anyone
wanting to get CutAndJacked?

1. Watch your nutrition (diet and stay away from unnecessary sodium)
3. Be consistent and try not to overthink

Height/Weight: 5’11, 190lbs
