When and how did you start with bodybuilding and fitness?

Well, I’ve always been very active during my youth. I played semi-pro in basketball here in Switzerland. After my “retirement”, I was looking for something as intense as basketball and #bodybuilding was the obvious answer.

Where does your motivation come from and what keeps you on the right track?

I would say first of all, results and progress. But now it’s more to become the best version of myself.

What drives you to get up in the morning and chase your goals?

My main goal is to see my proper progression every day and get better day after day.

What is your favorite workout routine?

At the moment, I’m working with PPL (Push-Pull-Legs) but I also like to do a complete split for weeks. My favorite #workout will always be chest training.

Give us a quick overview of your typical daily diet.

Well, It won’t be that extraordinary.

Breakfast: oatmeal with fruit and eggs

Lunch: rice, veggies and beef, chicken or fish

Diner: quite the same as lunch

Snacks: whey protein or cottage cheese with healthy fats like almonds or nuts and bananas

What is your favorite #healthy meal? Can you share a recipe?

I would say a nice peperonata with basmati rice, and sesame-soy sauce salmon. It’s yummy and tasty. For the salmon, it’s the easiest recipe I’ve ever done lol. Put the salmon in a container, add like 20ml of soy sauce to make the salmon soak into and sprinkle with sesame.

Which supplements are you currently using?

I’m using whey protein of course, but also creatine, omega 3, multivitamins, collagen and many more. This to get my body ready to be the best at every workout and to recover properly after a hard #training.

What challenges did you come across in getting to where you are at today?

I would say maybe the time, because I’m also a university student and studies take a lot of time and organization.

How do you make it fun to train?

I like to put my headphone on and play my favorite music and of course sing on it in the #gym. It annoys everyone lol

Your favorite gym beat?

I’m a huge fan of French rap and trap music

How does being an athlete make you a better person?

I would say being a better person is about having the right mindset. But I’ve learned many things like altruism or sportsmanship.

What were you like in high school?

I was a super skinny guy in high school.

If you were given an opportunity to have one training session with any person in the world, who would it be and why?

I would love to train with one of my favorite athletes, My mentor Julian Smith lol

What do you do to relax and unwind after a long day?

I love to get home and take care of my beautiful dog.

What piece of advice would you give to our readers looking to get in shape?

Well, like I said, it’s all about having the right #mindset and setting your #goals in front of you. It takes time but it’s totally worth it. It’s helps to feel good about yourself.
