Going forward, my personal bodybuilding goals include moving up the competitive ladder as an IFBB 212 pro and continuing to help my clients reach their personal and competitive goals.

I am also part of Team EliteFTS and keep a training log and answer questions on their website. I’ve written nutrition articles for websites like T-nation and Wannabebig, and also some of the top physique magazines like FLEX and Men’s Health.

I’ve trained in a variety of methods over the years, and also competed in powerlifting in the APF in 2004-2005. My best competition lifts were a 600 squat, a 440 bench, and a 600 deadlift, all in the 198 class.
