Could   you   tell   us   a   bit   about   yourself   and   how   you   started   training?

I first started training when I was about 12 or 13 with a barbell set my father had bought for my oldest brother. When I was 16, some high school classmates that competed in bodybuilding motivated me even further. So altogether, I’ve been training on and off for 30 years now, but I took it to another level just after I turned 30.

How   do   you   stay   motivated?

You don’t really need to stay motivated when you enjoy doing something this much. Sometimes, though, the effort a client demonstrates to me does give me that extra push when I’m training myself.

What   is   your   current   workout   routine?

My current workout consists of a lower body day, vertical push/pull and horizontal push/pull with variations in each of those days.

What   is   your   diet   like?

All I care about is hitting the numbers in terms of calories and macros and let the chips literally fall where they may. For 8-10 months of the year, to stay my leanest, I take in 2500 calories/ 225-275g protein/ 125-150g carbs/ 100-110g fat.

What   gives   you   the   best   results   when   trying   to   get   lean?

Keeping my calories as high as possible and losing weight as slow as possible. Ideally, I try to lose only 1 lb per week. Since most of the year I stay within 5-10lbs from my leanest condition, it’s usually a matter of weeks.

What   3   exercises   have   contributed   the   most   to   building   your   physique?

The basics…. flat bench press, neutral grip pullups and front squats. I’m actually reluctant to add the front squats since I still consider my lower body to be severely lagging in terms of development.

What   supplements   do   you   use?

Lets go in alphabetical order here… Blue Gene, Golden Gains, Green Mag, Muscle Milk, Myofusion, Orange Triad, Oximega Greens and fish oil, Purple Wraath and Purple Psyko, REDuction AM and PM. Along with generic brands of Vitamin C and D.

What   exercises   do   your   abs   respond   best   to?

Overhead squats and stiff legged hanging raise. In the end, it’s my diet that my abs respond best to.

What   is   the   most   common   training   question   that   people   ask   you?

People tend to ask “Do you really eat donuts and cat food? Even when cutting?” The truth is, “Yes, to the donuts…. no to the cat food.” Cat food is strictly for bulking season.

What   is   your   greatest   achievement   so   far?

When I get emails from people simply saying how much I’ve inspired them and that they’ve actually made drastic changes for the better. Now whether they’re simply blowing smoke up my… you know… that’s another thing.

What   are   your   plans   for   the   future?

To survive for the zombie apocalypse and look good while doing so. Lately though I’ve been second-guessing myself as to whether it may instead be an alien invasion. If so, I’d have to tweak my training to survive that.
