    Only the Strong Survive

    Athlete Bio

    As a kid I lived , ate and breathed basketball. I never touched a weight until age 18. I never thought of getting big or competing at first. I used weight training as outlet to get rid of any negative energy. 2 years later I started personal training at GoodLife and met Heather King, a well known national level female bodybuilder. She guided me and seen potential. Now the rest is history. 4 shows later I’m ready to compete at the national level. This is a way of life and I’m thankful for everyone who has had my back along the way.

    Q & A

    List your top 3 tips on training, nutrition or contest prep

    Things I’ve learned over the years is that heavy weights aren’t the way to truly achieve hypertrophy. I grew up watching guys like Ronnie Coleman, Kevin Levrone, and Jay cutler. Don’t get me wrong I’ve built my foundation and density utilizing heavy Deadlifts, Squats, Rows, and Presses but as you age your body can’t support this type of lifting. I’ve learned methods like Time under Tension, Rest pause sets, Drop sets, Super Sets, German Volume Training are better options or methods to train to keep the joints and tendons healthy as you get older.

    I’ve learned that offseason is not a time to put on fat and consume unnecessary high amounts of bad calories. Try to stay 10 to 15 pounds from stage weight. Keep Cardio in your routine for heart health and better blood flow, and keep cheat meals limited to once a week. Think of offseason as Contest Prep and you will make better quality gains, while staying in shape and feel overall healthy. This mindset will make you that much more successful in your competitive career.

    Favorite industry highlights

    1. Overcoming a quadriceps tendon tear to compete 25 weeks later on the National Stage.
    2. 2013 signing to MuscleTech, and experiencing working at the Arnold Classic and Olympia as athlete in 2014.
    3. Meeting my Coach Sean Tierney in 2013. So far three shows done with him with top 3 placings in the heavy weight category at 2015 provincials and 2017.
