Division: MPD and bodybuilding
What got you started: always loved how you can gain Lean mass while you get shredded at the same time, only 2% of the population can do that. I got started around 2 & 1/2 years ago when I first walked into the gym and picked up a dumbbell I knew this is what I want to do with my life. I used to be a hockey all star playing out of Sarnia, Ontario but that all changed when I became obsessed with the gym. I ended up quitting hockey to pursue my dreams. Now I’m in the gym 6-7 days a week since then I’ve never missed any work outs or meals. The cold, hard steel just became a love of mine.
Competitions: On October 17th I competed in my first show, I was the youngest competitor, and I took 3rd in both my classes( Teens & Men’s open). With that being said I’ve never had any help in the gym from either a trainer or nutritionist or posing coach, it was all on me.
Training Philosophy: My training philosophy is working out for long periods of time up to 3 hours a day with most days being heavy weight high reps, I’ve never believed in over-training or any of that bull crap that people tell you because they think you train too hard for too long. I believe in doing whatever it takes to reach your goals, just like Rich Piana!
Future plans: The road ahead of me seems very good to me, I hope to be sponsored by the age of 20 and get my IFBB pro card. If I earn enough money, I would love to open my own hardcore gym; that’s one of my biggest dreams.
Supplements: I use different proteins like APS Isomorph 28 and other products from Mind and Muscle.
