HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH FITNESS/BODYBUILDING?
I started this whole fitness thing when I was 16 years old when my sister gave me a gym pass. I started going on a daily after seeing New Moon from the Twilight series.
Seeing Jacob Blacks (Taylor Lautner) physique in the movie and how everybody reacted to it, I was inspired to get the “six pack abs”. Fast forward three years later, I now love the whole fitness lifestyle and have exceeded my original goal of just getting the “six pack abs”.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU, WHERE DOES YOUR MOTIVATION COME FROM?
Motivation for me seems to have never really been a problem when it came to fitness. When I think about it, the motivation comes from seeing gradual progression in my body month by month. Knowing all the hard work I put in the gym and out of the gym is exactly what I see in front of myself. Another thing that is a motivator for myself is seeing my peers transform themselves, that re- motivates my motivation if that makes sense (lol). Shout out to my Northfield Anytime and Conway Anytime gym crew!
WHAT WORKOUT ROUTINE HAS WORKED BEST FOR YOU?
I use to do the programs “Visual Impact Muscle Building” by Rusty Moore over at Fitnessblackbook, and “Build Muscle Like A Greek God” by Greg O’Gallagher over at Kinobody, but now I am onto higher volume workouts derived from Greg Plitt.
