BIO: I have been lifting since 13 years old and started getting serious about competing in 2008 with shows every few years since then. Over time, I have found that slow and steady wins the race. Bodybuilding is an example of a lot of small things done well, greatness. Chad Dolan is my programming coach/diet advisor. One must be objective about theeir methods and the effectiveness of them and seek out what is not working and find something that does. I cannot stress this enough!
