In my family as a kid, we always were taken to work. My dad had a building company and my brothers and I always had to help and when old enough “Work “, and work hard. We had hard work achieves goals installed in us from a very young age. I saw I needed to get stronger to be more efficient at work. At the same time of this realization the stronger more muscled actors were in the movies, Arnold, Stallone and everyone’s favourite Mr. T. Once I saw how strong these guys were, I thought “I need to be strong and big like these guys”. At this point I knew I wanted to be a bodybuilder.
I’m a very level minded guy, usually very emotionally in control. So many of my highs such as having a three page article on me in the world famous FLEX magazine were great, but then I want to achieve the next goal. I don’t feel there are career lows; I look at things in this way. If something didn’t go how you wanted it, at least I’ve learnt how to make it right next time. So that to me is a high. “Always be great at what your good at “.
My 3 top tips are as follows,
Consistency is the key, eat, rest and train consistent, this gives quality results as fast as possible.
Be driven, but sensible. To be a great bodybuilder you need mental stability.
Lastly, to build a great body, build a great life and personality “Be Humble “and the great people in your life will help you be the best.
I wasn’t really given any advice, but I would say to someone “Always look at the pros and cons of every goal. If you know what your letting yourself in for, you can win, no matter what way it turns.
If I could meet anyone, it would be Charles Darwin, and I would say “How can I adapt to survive in life “. Following his quote “It’s not the strongest, nor the most intelligent that survives, but the one most adaptable to change “
My motivation to keep pushing even when I really don’t want to, Is the fact I want to be the best for everyone close to me. Strong, to show them, we should never give up.
To be honest, I love being busy, I have No free time at all. I work all the time, but I love what I do, and meeting great people whilst doing it.
I try to have a complete package with regards to the best and worst body part, I work hard on everything. I have never just worked arms for example. I knew I wanted to be a bodybuilder to compete, so I worked everything to balance my physique.
My best exercise is probably squat, because it’s a whole body battle, Mind and muscle connection. I like being in control of that connection.
My worst exercise is anything to do with training biceps, because it makes the tendons in my arms ache for ages.
My ambitions for the future are to stay healthy, Try and get some free time. Train harder and grow.
I have met and worked with quite a few famous people doing what I do, but I would never say who as it’s unprofessional of me. I have many of the top professional bodybuilders phone numbers on my phone, but again I won’t say, You only have to look at my Facebook page to see who I speak to.
This is my favorite picture (see above) the reason why I like it, is because I was heavy, hard and cut, and completely off season. And the off season part was what made me happy “Eating tasty food and lots of it “.
My booost experience was awesome; I used it for the first time during a leg session. We were squatting and fatigue was setting in fast. I decided to use a few sprays of the booost and it was like I hadn’t done anything on my legs. I could just power on and on. When I finished training, I used booost a few more times to just simply give me faster recovery. The following day, I felt totally fine, like I hadn’t trained my legs the day before at all. I couldn’t believe it; everyone else that trained with me that day was in pieces for 2 days after the session. “I was fully recovered and fine “.
