As a kid growing up, I would often fantasize about being the biblical judge, Samson, and the mythical legend, Hercules, possessing great strength.
Every physical chore my dad gave me, such as removing rocks from the garden or carrying planks from construction jobs, I welcomed as a way to grow bigger muscles.
At the age of 11, I asked my parents for a set of weights for Christmas. They fulfilled my request with my very own York barbell and dumbbell weight lifting set, which included a Charles Atlas weight lifting brochure.
From that moment on, I read everything I could get my hands on about weight training and nutrition.
Every trip to the grocery or drug store would land me in the magazine section, searching for my favorite body-building stars.
By the time I was 16, I entered my first bodybuilding contest wearing a pair of blue and red underwear from K-Mart. At the time, I didnt know there was such a thing as posing trunks.
My placing in the contest didnt go too well. However, I had fun and was told by the judges I had lots of potential.
The die had been cast for me, a teenager from the small town of Spartanburg, South Carolina, and so began my rise to the top in the field of amateur and professional bodybuilding.

Ive often been asked by people, "Was it the training systems, the meal plan, the vitamin supplement program, or the tuna fish that gave you the muscles?"
This is what I believe:
I distinctly recall praying one night before bed, "Lord, if you see fit to make me the best at this sport that I love so much … I will go before the world and give you the praise and the glory."
Apparently, He heard and answered my prayer in a mighty way. How else can I explain winning the Mr. Olympia title 8 consecutive times and finding a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, being appointed as Chairman to the Presidents Council on Fitness and Sports, being inducted into the International Sports Hall of Fame, hosting exercise shows on both ESPN and the Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN), and the list goes on.
It gives me the greatest pleasure to be able to share the knowledge I gained over the years.
To God be the glory!
