    Default From Strongman to Physique...

    Time for a change!
    Started competing as a lightweight(<231lbs) strongman in November 2008, gathered quite a few trophies, been to nationals, but time to switch gears. Many more opportunities for me in MPD and natural BB.

    I have followed the anabolic diet during competition season to stay close to 231, am continuing this approach with slight modifications- only 1 day of carbs and all clean food now.
    Cardio is being done 4-5 days/week, generally 20 minutes of stairmaster now. Weight training is done pretty much instinctively.

    I am 6'2" and turning 24 years old at the end of this month. I'm probably looking at 210 contest time, April 2013.
    From 2008-2010 I trained literally ZERO chest. Got some work to do there.
    That's about it...
