I started bodybuilding in high school to add muscle for sports. After about a year of training, I realized how quickly I was growing, and that I loved training. After a major knee injury, and subsequent surgery took me out of sports, bodybuilding became my main focus.
I met Johnny Doull after my second show, and he really pushed me to become a better bodybuilder. As years went on our friendship developed, and my progress became better. After 2014 nationals I had the opportunity to sign with MUTANT and never looked back since!

MY FAVORITE WORKOUT – LEGS
Squats: a few warm up sets, then 3 work sets with 500-600lbs X 8-12 reps
Leg extensions: 4-5 X 20 reps, last 2 sets are drop sets
Leg Press: 1 X Muscle round. I will use the same weight for 10 reps,
then rest 10 seconds and repeat for 3-4 rounds. So it's like one big rest/pause set.
Lying leg curls: the same fashion as leg extensions
