What are your thoughts on the Men's Physique Division? To the general public, modern top bodybuilders are a curiosity, not an ideal. Few people want to look like that, themselves. I respect people going after what makes them look and feel the way they want. Hopefully this new class will get some legs under it and make a class for those of us that care less about size and more about aesthetics and athleticism.

Typical daily eating plan: I do what I call a micro-zigzag. I’m pretty meticulous in tracking food intake, so I’m able to keep the bulk and cut in a pretty tight range. I bulk until the calipers move past a set point, which varies from 10 to 15 days. Then I do a gentle 2-5 day cut until I hit my reset point on the calipers.


Favorite supplement: BSN Nitrix


What peaked your interest in training? As a kid, I thought the bodybuilders of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s looked really good, and I figured they must get the girl.


Who influences/influenced your training? As a kid growing up I admired the physiques of Arnold and Frank Zane.
