I got started with bodybuilding as many men do: I wanted to look good and get chicks. As soon as I touched the weights though I realized I loved it and everything that came with it. I enjoy eating healthy, lifting heavy, and empowering others to do the same.
I want to say I got serious about my Fitness lifestyle after my football career ended. I realized and had known for quite some time that my leadership skills would transfer easily to the fitness industry.
I Train because I want to be an Alpha. I want to create my ideal perfect body and I do this because it would be self-fulfilling not because I care about what others think. However, I do enjoy when my sacrifices motivate others to change their life for the better because I know I’m helping them live healthier.
In 2018 I’m competing in the greater Naples Classic 2018 men’s physique show for the NPC. I look to win my first overall in my second show ever, furthermore, I will be launching yet another business that I think will help men feel more confident about themselves (more on this later on in my profile, gotta keep it on the low low)
The first 4/12 weeks of my prep is probably some of the most intense weight training I ever undergo year round. After that I start to taper of workout volume and add more frequency per muscle group with emphasis on any weak points I may have. That being said I also increase cardio every 3-4 weeks depending on how my weight is dropping. I will still go heavy with my lifts and try to retain enough strength as possible.

1. Calories per day:
Losing weight is all about creating a calorie deficit. One pound equals 3,500 calories, which breaks down to 500 calories a day. Do a combo of exercise and cutting calories to reach 500, and you'll lose a pound a week. You can meet with a nutritionist or your doctor to find a more specific daily calorie count, but don't dip below 1,200, as it will slow down your metabolism.
Generally speaking, it is easier for an individual to stay on track with a fitness regime first thing in the morning because there is less time for family, evening plans, commuting, late nights in the office, and other distractions to get in the way. Fatigue from a long day can also lead to skipped evening workouts.
