How I Got in Shape and added muscle without using steroids or drugs!
I got interested in working out and getting in shape as a mixed martial artist doing b-jujitsu, capoeira and kickboxing. From the martial arts training and discipline I started to getting pretty lean and it was then that I started to train in the gym to add more muscle. It was here that I met a guy called Steve Mares, a natural bodybuilder who convinced me to train hard and do my first show in Texas at age 15. Five years later I continue to compete in all natural competitions and Muscle Mania shows. I am a drug free bodybuilder who relies on science and hard work to build muscle and not steroids.
I know that in the long
term I will be much healthier by taking the natural approach to
bodybuilding. I want to prove to other guys that you can have a great
physique without resorting ton steroids or drugs.
Here's My Workout Schedule:
I like to follow a split workout schedule each week as you will see below. This allows me to focus on each body group and then provide adequate rest and recovery. I don't perform a massive amount of sets but tend to keep it at 3 usually. As long as I get some failure sets in there I'm exhausting my muscles.

What Nutrition Plan Has Worked Best For You?
I try to stick with low sodium foods and lean meats as much as possible along with veggies and fruits. Examples of food I eat would be: Chicken, turkey, eggs, lean beef, squash, spinach, onions, asparagus, grapefruits, apples and oranges. I try to avoid fast food joints and anything un-natural even though I treat myself from time to time. Below is my typical diet, lots of protein and clean carbs help me to stay relatively lean year round.
10 egg whites
1 cup oatmeal
12 oz orange juice
1 serving BSN True Mass weight gainer shake
1 large potato
50g Dymatize ISO-100 protein shake
Meal # 5
1lb of chicken
8 oz veggies
50g casein protein
Which supplements do you like to use?
The supplement that gives me great gains would be Creatine Monohydrate. I don't rely on supplements to give me gains but only to boost me. I like taking branch chain amino acids for endurance and protein synthesis after workouts. I also use a Whey Protein and Casein Protein for night time.
