How did you get started?
I have always wanted to compete and a local trainer at a gym here in Houston called “Next Level” took a chance with me and sponsored me for my very first show. I placed 2nd, loved the way i felt and looked I’ve been hooked ever since! Bodybuilding has given me so many tools that I now use in all aspects of my life. Discipline, determination, patience and perseverance. I was very nervous and scared to do my first show because I had no idea what it involved but again after completing the first one and getting 2nd for my first show I knew I wanted to continue on the path of competing. Here i am 7 years later and still rocking and rolling and absolutely loving every single minute of it!
WHAT YOUR DIET CONSISTS OF AND WHY?
My diet consists of 6 small meals a day. I eat every 2 ½ to 3hrs. Each meal contains 4oz of protein and white meat only. This keeps my metabolism going so that I can continue to build lean muscle and burn body fat.
WHAT SUPPLEMENTS DO YOU USE?
I order all of my supplements off of bodybuilding.com. For my protein shakes i use the vanilla whey protein from MRM (it doesn’t have any added hormones or additives etc).
I also use :
- L-Carnitine 500mg
- Primal force Green tea extract 500mg
- Evogen Complex (PRE-Workout)
- L-Glutamine (POST-Workout & Before Bed)
Example of Diet
- Meal 1: 1/3 Cup of Oatmeal & 4 Egg whites.
- Meal 2: 4oz White meat.

WHAT DOES YOUR CURRENT WORK-OUT ROUTINE LOOK LIKE?
I train my lower body 2 times a week and upper body once a week. I do two sessions of one hour of Cardio every day and I break it up into two sessions.
WHAT ARE YOUR MAX LIFTS?
I try not to lift heavy, I do 4 sets of each exercise for 20 reps per set. When lifting I try and keep moving the whole time to keep my heart rate up.
