Why did you start training?

I started training when i was around 17 mainly because i was very skinny and just wanted to put on a bit of size. things just evolved from there and it became something that i loved doing - training just became something i had to do everyday. I began just training in the weekdays whilst at school and took the weekends off and made some very good gains.

What does your training look like? (exercises, sets, days training)

i mainly stick to compound movements for lower reps (3-5) and high sets(10-15 sets). i switch between poliquins AGVT to something a little bit lighter during my de-load weeks so that i don't burn out. with the AGVT i'll train 2 days on-1 day off-1 day on-1 day off-repeat.
I've recently switched to FST7 for a little while as i started to plateau a little bit and also to give my joints a bit of a break from the heavy lifts. with the fst i'll go to around 6-8 reps on the compound movements and then about 8-10 on the more isolation movements.
I personally feel i get the best results on AGVT as there's a little more frequency per week on each bodypart which i seem to respond well to.

What is your current diet like?

Meal 1 - 4 whole eggs and 60g of oatmeal (+1 tab anabolic pump)
Meal 2 - 2 scoops Myofusion
Meal 3 - 200g grilled chicken and 100g sweet potatoes (+1 tab anabolic pump)
Meal 4 - 120g tuna salad with light mayo dressing
Meal 5 - 200g grilled chicken with 100g white rice (+1 tab anabolic pump)
Meal 6 - Pre-workout: 5g glutamine
- Post workout: 1 scoop Myofusion
Meal 7 - 3 tabs ZMA followed by 120g tuna salad with light mayo.

Do you currently do cardio? what do you do?

i try and stay as far away from cardio as possible! i tend to stay pretty lean year round as i'm pretty good with my eating

Best advice you could give someone about training/diet

Be consistent. If you're not consistent, you won't be going anywhere fast. Leave ego at the door - there are too many people lifting too much weight with terrible form. same with the diet. if you're not constantly eating the right food and right amounts you're not going to grow so get that nailed down first and foremost.

1) What do you do for a living, and how has this affected your training?
i'm a headhunter within front office finance. Essentially i work with a group of hedge funds and recruit traders/researchers etc. i pretty much work a 60 hour week but i train from about 8:45-10pm. the only down side is that i very rarely get enough sleep! this is something i'd love to change.

2) What has been your worst injury, and how did you work around it, repair it?
just a shoulder strain but thankfully i've had nothing too serious come up.

3) If you had to pick one or two key principles/words of advice to tell every newb, what would they be?

when you start off stick to compound movements and try to build that mind muscle connection - it'll serve you well in the future.

4) How does your size/strength affect your life outside of the gym?
it doesn't really per say - but i do find that i do most things outside of the gym to maximise my performance in the gym! but it's something i love doing so it's just become a part of my life.

5) If you could do a couple of things different, what would they be and why?
i would have started off using maximal weights for lower reps from earlier on in my lifting and focus on getting stronger rather than just going for the pump.

6) What is it going to take for you to feel like you have accomplished something special in this thing we do?
just being able to look at my physique and feel as if everything is in proportion.

sorry if youve answered this elsewhere, but do you have any intentions of competing?

I actually have a question as to, what do you do in regards to meal prep? You said you get out of the gym late and work high hours as do others on this board im sure so how does that go down?
