I actually started training at age 15 when I took up my brother's home weight set and started seeing results after about 3 months of training. I fell in love with the pump and the changes that were occurring. I liked the idea that I was my own trainer, nutritionist and motivator.
I normally train around 5 or 6 days per week. Currently I training
every body part about 3 times every 2 weeks.
Day 1: Chest, shoulders, triceps, abs.
Day 2: Calves, quads, hams
Day 3: Back, rear delts, biceps, abs.
I mainly stick with a high protein, moderate fat and moderate to low carb type diet.
I also cycle carbs to keep my body guessing when burning fat.
That is a tough one! I would have to say pizza with ice cream
coming in a close second!
By always having a goal in mind and knowing where I am in my training. It is tough to barrel through a workout day in and day out without a specific goal in mind. You just go through the motions if there is no end point in sight. Additionally, you have to keep in mind where you are in your training. For example, after I compete in a show I will switch gears and take it easier and lighter in the gym for a few weeks and have some fun - maybe try a few new moves out I have never done before. This not only gives my body a rest, but also my mind as well until the next goal is set and my commitment is established once again. So being aware of this can give you longevity in the gym.
Being very motivated after 20 years of training and staying injury-free

I must admit I am a big Jay Cutler fan, but I always have been the biggest Arnold fan.
The bodybuilders of the Golden Era were very raw and powerful!
