I seriously got into bodybuilding during the winter of 2006. At the time, I respected the discipline and dedication of the bodybuilding lifestyle but didn’t think I had the look, build, or genetics to ever step onstage. I went to a show with my girlfriend and everything changed after that.
With the help of my girlfriend and a select few, I began my journey. I had been eating fairly clean but realized that in order to step it up I needed to break the chains of habit and build better ones. I researched diets, supplements, macronutrients, training styles, and philosophies, I taught myself how to cook and eat like a bodybuilder. Multiple feedings throughout the day, a goal oriented supplement regimen, rest, training, even my mindset was geared towards competing.
