c. What motivates you to train?

What motivates me to train everyday is not to be normal. To be able to look different that most people don’t look like and lift weights most people wouldn’t touch just ignites a fire inside to get better everyday. So that’s why I push my self to failure in the gym and outside the gym. 

 

d. What’s your greatest success in fitness?

My greatest success would have to be deadlifting 750lbs. And going from 120lbs- 303lbs in my bodybuilding journey. 

 

e. What music do you listen to when training?

I don’t listen to music I listen to YouTube motivational lifting videos of other people in the gym smashing weight, screaming, and motivational speaking. 

 

f. Who is your bodybuilding inspiration?

Don’t really have a specific person I get inspiration from but I watch and follow many who give me motivation to push past failure and Destroy myself in the gym. 

 

g. What are your dreams and or what excites you?

My dream is to be a great coach/trainer, open and run my own gym, and to compete at a high level naturally. 

 

h. Do you have any shout outs or people you’d like to thank?

A shout out all my friends / training partners who helped push me in the gym! So I could become better. I’ve had many training partners and they all helped me with my bodybuilding.
