It all started through studying the martial arts for a lifetime. The forms, languages, cultures and ways of life of each art I studied. This and all its teachings eventually led me to a successful tour in the US Air Force and then back into the civilian life doing what I do today.
Throughout this journey, my life’s work to be the greatest martial artist came to a quick halt due to a spinal problem…this spun me through a time of serious depression and forced me to rethink my life and what I was going to do from that point forward. I stumbled upon bodybuilding during a sort of rehab for my spine. I seemed to respond quickly to the resistance training and since my spine could deal with vertical pressure, I went with it! Over the first year, I went from a fit 170lbs to a lean, solid and full 195lbs!! It was obvious I had been under-nourishing myself over the previous years training in the martial arts.
This opened new doors for me and I blasted through them…I was going to prove to the world that one COULD reach the Olympia stage as a natural. I learned quickly that couldn’t happen and changed my path to become the greatest natural bodybuilder. Knowing this was a tough road, I developed a solid network of support around me and focused on reaching out to others and helping them become better through positive changes in their health. This taught me more than I could have ever imagined!
Today, I am proud to be a lifetime drug free athlete, role model and mentor to my children and others, and to be a part of an amazing team with Optimum Nutrition.
The only fruit I keep in is blueberries...I typically cut dairy about 6 weeks out, but that is easy...the only dairy I enjoy is CHEESE!Read Full Article

Another one of those mixed message things with bodybuilding prep...it is a 100% personal thing. For me, I never allow myself to feel hungry or put myself in a situation to get the shakes...so I never do cardio on an empty stomach. But for some guys...it works like a charm on an empty stomach!Read Full Article
