What would you recommend to someone getting started on Beverly supplements? First, I would congratulate them on choosing the best quality product that you can find. I recommend that you start with a protein such as Ultimate Muscle Protein (UMP) or Muscle Provider (MP). Next, I would recommend Creatine Select. Creatine is backed by science to be an effective muscle builder. I would also recommend taking FitTabs as an excellent mineral source to help with protein absorption and speed up recovery after a workout.
Music: I listen to everything from Toby Mac to Ozzy Osbourne.
Words to live by: Do not judge because you will be judged. Matthew 7:1
Coming from a family of professional athletes, fitness was as common as waking up every morning and brushing my teeth. As a young boy, it was never what sport I was going to be involved in; the expectation was what sport were you going to excel in?
The bodybuilding bug hit when I was in 8th grade with the influence of my swole gym teacher, Mr. Dave Douglas, who taught me the basics of bodybuilding.
Though Mr. Douglas taught me the basics of working out, I didn't understand the aspects and benefits of proper nutrition and supplementation until I began training at a local bodybuilding gym,
"Bodybuilders Inc" in Akron, Ohio. One day I got up enough nerve to ask the biggest guy in the gym how he got so big and strong. He pointed out the protein and supplements he was taking. They were from a company called Beverly International. Of course, I immediately bought the protein and took it religiously after each workout as directed. I gained 10 pounds of quality muscle that summer and decided to compete in my first bodybuilding show. I entered the Mr. Akron and won my class at 15 years old.
As time went on, I continued to religiously take the Beverly International supplements that jump-started my bodybuilding passion as I won several titles in bodybuilding and powerlifting.
I won two state titles in powerlifting. But I became discouraged with the amount of drugs being used in bodybuilding and stopped competing for ten years. I continued training hard and always had the dream of maybe competing again in the back of my head. My dream became a reality when I learned of Dave Lieberman's drug-tested NPC Mr. Ohio contest. I would return to the bodybuilding stage in 2012 and vowed to come in my best shape ever. I ramped up my training and went with the same Beverly International supplements that I had used to ramp up my initial bodybuilding passion.
I won the overall in both the open and masters divisions. This achievement would not have been possible without the help of Dave Liberman and my consistent use of Beverly International supplements.
I still compete, write diet and nutrition plans for clients, train others, and consistently preach healthy living. As I write this article, I am preparing for the 2021 Natural Northern USA and Yorton Cup, which are considered the country's best and biggest natural shows. At 52 years old, training has gotten more difficult and taxing; therefore, my supplementation and nutrition have become even more critical. There is no doubt in my mind that I have maintained a 20-year-old body at 52 years young because of my nutrition and supplementation with Beverly International products.
I'm a big believer in training the muscle according to fast-twitch or slow-twitch fibers. I have a heavy day and a light day to accommodate both types of muscle fibers.
