Contest Weight: 210 lb
Occupation: Online coach, IFBB Pro Bodybuilder
My background is Portuguese and Egyptian. I have always been heavily involved in sport from a young age competing at national level as a teen in a number of sports such as football, athletics and rugby. As I got older I started realizing that I actually enjoyed the training aspect of sports much more than playing the game, this is where I found my love for bodybuilding! The gym was always my therapy, a place where I could go whenever I wanted to get away. I think this is why I have so much passion for the sport as no matter what is happening in life the gym is always there for you to clear your mind and re-focus.
I believe in keeping things simple, clean quality whole foods has always worked great for me when it comes to contest prep or offseason! Keep it simple, these days everyone is trying to re-invent the wheel and I think this is why we see a lack of consistent quality on stages these days. Simple works, don’t over complicate things.
I’m a huge believer in hard work and intensity when it comes to training, nothing can beat consistent hard work in and outside of the gym. A lot of my training currently revolves around progressive overload using very strict form. As I have got older I have started to realise the importance of form and connecting with the target muscle rather than just loading the weight; connection and stimulation is key with training.
My goal has always been to turn IFBB Pro, which I achieved in 2019, and now I aim to continue to progress my bodybuilding career, as well as my contribution to the sport & industry as a whole; which I believe I can do in a unique way with RegoRaw.com
My motivation comes from own self-belief and bettering myself, as not only a bodybuilder, but also as a person. My aim is to strive to be better in all aspects of life.
