- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
