How do you motivate yourself?

I motivate myself every day. I am my own motivation. I know that to get the best, I have to go beyond myself. That pushes me.

How do you supplement your diet with your workout?

I have six small meals through the day and I supplement my diet with a zero carb protein shake once in the morning and once after my workout. I depend very less on supplements and try to eat as much natural food as I can.

A fitness tip for your fans.

Fitness is all about eating right. So control your food, and you control your body.
