1. What got you started into Power Lifting and Why do you think you excelled through the sport so quickly.

    I got into powerlifting as an opportunity to test myself against true strength athletes. I have always lifted weights and was strong compared to others, but I wanted to see how strong I was among powerlifters.

  2. What sort of training did you do prior to Power Lifting that allowed you to transfer over so easily.

    I was a gym rat. Training started due to football, but I excelled in the weight room more than I did on the field.

  3. Who in the sport inspires you or drives you to push harder, If anyone at all? If not, then what does inspire you or drives you.

    I push myself daily to become as strong as I possibly can. Guys like Stan Efferding, Eric Lillibridge, Brandon Lilly, to name a few, have paved the way for goals that I have set.

  4. Whats your end goal in the Sport of Powerlifting, What are you ultimately trying to achieve?

    Besides being one of the best powerlifters in the world, I would say my main goal is to be a successful gym owner. I plan on my powerlifting achievements helping my gym become a reality.

  5. What would be your #1 tip to any upcoming powerlfiters that may look up to you in the sport?

    If you are new to the sport, keep in mind that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Each and every year as you develop as a lifter, your theory’s and technique will evolve and change. Share your knowledge with the less experienced. Keep the sport positive.
