Up until 2009 at the age of 38 and with 24 years of training under my belt, I was able to do pretty well for myself. I captured two pro cards that year weighing in at 160lbs, but surely not ready to contend on a pro stage. But after meeting Eric Helms in that same year, I slowly but surely started to incorporate more of his methods and philosophies from The Muscle and Strength Pyramids into my own arsenal over the next few years. Fast forward to 2014, I competed 10lbs heavier and won the IFPA Pro International and placed 4th at the WNBF Worlds. Still using the muscle and strength pyramids to this day, I plan on competing again in 2017 and hopefully move a notch higher as an elite athlete.
