Great to see you staying lean in the offseason. I think thats a big mistake most bb'ers make. Getting too fat in the offseason.

Looking forward to seeing you on a pro stage in the near future Grin

i have no idea what the end result will be when i step on stage in my first show.

however, i will say...what it took for me to turn pro is what im going to do to compete as a pro, i'm not going to ruin my shape.

believe it or not, i was holding on by a thread back then with my energy level to train for shows.
i was burned out real bad, and was listening to too many people...big mistake on my part.

i placed 4th in 97, 3rd in 99 and 2000.

all three i deserved those placings....

Craig and I have always had a good relationship, and im looking forward to geting back on stage against him one day...i think we brought out the best in both of us those couple of years.

when you compete at the top of the national level, you have to respect the guys up there or your just a real dickhead....lol

i hustled to get my name out there, i made phone calls, contacted everyone...and bill liked my look enough to put me on the cover of muscle media.
i did get a lot of coverage for back then...i actually had to write letters to EVERYONE in every magazine...no internet back then.

Bill seemed like a decent guy.

it was the ONLY cover i ever been on.

Hi Vinnie and welcome.

1. Do you realize you represent a standard for body building regardless of how you have been "judged" so far ?

2. Did you find an offseason and precontest that works for you and you strive to bring a complete package each time ? Or do you plan a drastic change ?

3. Besides your frame which is god given as well as shape.....did you make a conscious effort to keep everythingsymetric and in proportion ? training and diet wise ..

i don't understand question #1

i am very fortunate that i dont get real fat in the offseason and can pretty much eat what ever i want...i still eat my bodybuilding food as i outlined earlier, but if i want McDonald's or pizza i'm going to eat it. i am trying to have one of the best offseasons ever.

it took me 16 fuckin years to get here, i'd be fool to not pay attention to what i need to do this offseason to improve....lol

years ago i actually tried to get huge, but that never happened...i could never pack on size like king or dexter....i'm more like a new version of frank zane...lol

i think we all try to get big when we first start out...but i quickly realized what kind of package i had, and never tried to play the size game.

First question refers to the fact that for the past 15 years personally I considered you a standard for body building physique wise ...

You ARE a modern Zane ...and that in itself is the best compliment ...

I'm saying thisa in a totally non gay way  Cheesy

(you realized what your frame can optimally hold and stuck with it ...this is what they all should do IMO )

vinny i ahve a question on your diet
i know u put like olive oil on your food during the diet and the times u would take your food in tupperware how would u deal w/ the oil that leaked off the food and soaked into the bottom of the plastic tupperware? or would u not worry about the oil or would u worry about missing part of your meal?
thanks

actually i hate olive oil...i use macadamia nut oil...and i never use tuperwear, i only use SNAPWEAR, much better than tuperwear.

i take the bottle and a measuring spoon with me, and put the oil on when i'm about to eat.

you can get all cool cooking and kitchen stuff at bed bath and beyond...every bodybuilder should visit one, its a dream store....lol
