A: Part of my daily regime is my glucosamine and, of course, a multitude of multivitamins. Branched-chain amino acids, glutamine, of course protein. I have one protein shake a day, and that is immediately after my training.
Q: You've admitted using steroids when you were younger. Have you taken them since?
A: I tried it when I was 18. At that time, we didn't know what we were doing. Had no idea. Didn't see any results. They were orals [not injections], and as far as we knew, we were probably taking Tylenol.
Q: Are a lot of guys in bodybuilding still using steroids today?
A: In the world of bodybuilding and the culture of bodybuilding, yes, of course it's prevalent. In the world of sports, professional sports: prevalent. Amateur sports: prevalent. More today than [in the '90s]? I have no idea.
Q: Do you have any advice for South Florida residents looking to get fit?
A: You gotta take that first step. It's scary. Sometimes, you think, "Holy s---, I'm too far gone to make a difference." But you gotta take that first step, have faith in the first step, have a plan. Taking that first step applies to all of us, by the way, whether we're in good shape, not good shape, whatever change we want to make lifestyle-wise, body-wise, health-wise, training-wise. You gotta take that first step, and you gotta be willing to put in the work, and it can be done. We've seen it over the years, and we'll continue to see it with many people down here in South Florida. I've seen them and witnessed and trained with them, and they've had these incredible transitions.
