How did you get started with bodybuilding?

My older brother got me started in the gym when I was a teenager. I looked up to him because he was always bigger and stronger and that was when my love for bodybuilding began.


Where does your motivation come from?

My motivation comes from the conflagration burning inside me to be the best I can be in whatever it is I put my mind to.


What workout routine has worked best for you?

Full Routine:

I train by instinct. Which means I don’t follow the rules others have made that might work for them. I always use exercises that I know work for me and I generally warm up at the start for 1-2 sets then complete 3 working sets.

Day 1: Chest

  • Flat Bench 5x 5-15 reps
  • Incline Dumbbell 4x 6-12
  • Flat Dumbbell fly 4x 10-15
  • Dumbbell Pullovers 3x 10-12
  • Dips 4x failure

Day 2: Back

  • Chins 4x failure
  • Barbell Bent Over Rows 4x 8-12
  • Lat Pulldown 4x 8-12
  • One Arm Dumbbell Rows 4x 8-12
  • Close Grip Lat Pulldown 4x 8-12

Day 5: Arms

  • Barbell Curls 5x 6-12
  • Preacher Curls 4x 6-10
  • Concentration Curls 4x 6-10
  • Lying Skull Crushes 5x 6-12
  • Cable Extensions 4x 8-12
  • Rope Pulldowns 3x 10


If you had to pick only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?

  1. Bench Press – Because what kind of bodybuilder doesn’t want to have a biggest chest, right?
  2. Chin-ups – How are you supposed to fly without a good pair of wings that open like barn doors.
  3. Squats – Because what good is an impressive upper body if you haven’t got the foundations built right ;)
