I am a pro natural bodybuilder and associate professor at Oklahoma State University.  This website is my attempt to shed a little more light into the world of natural bodybuilding, including my own diet and training regimen.

Natural bodybuilding means that I choose to build my physique without the use of steroids, prohormones, or other banned substances.  It means that there is no substitute for hard work in the gym, a disciplined diet, and patience.  It means you have to use your brain as well as your brawn to devise and implement a plan that will push your body to its very limits and lead you to success on the bodybuilding stage.

Brian's Tips for Success in Natural Bodybuilding

  1. Diet hard. Dieting is the hardest part of competing. It is a mental challenge to construct a proper diet and to eat the appropriate foods for long enough to get yourself into true contest shape.
  2. Train hard. Work ethic in the gym plays a large role in how far you take your genetic potential. Push yourself!
  3. Stay humble. I will never see myself as even an above average bodybuilder. Regardless of how many shows you win, stay grounded and aim for improvement.
