is this correct?

Josh: Yes

FoW: Well letís start out with a background on you leading up to your first comp. What was things like and why did you choose bodybuilding?

Josh: I got started because of my friends Billy Frasar and Phil told me about a wheelchair Bodybuilding contest in West Palm Beach, Fl which I competed in 1994 it was a great experience.



FoW: I know itís been a while, but do remember what your first workouts were like?

Josh: I started working out when I was 12 as far as the workout for competing has been the same in general like when I first started working out but just with more intensity.


FoW: You must be very dedicated to do that many shows. What drives you?

Josh: I like competing and entertaining people.



FoW: You took a break for a few years. Was this to build your quality and size?

Josh: No just needed a break plus no money to do it right now.


Fow: Whatís your favorite exercise?

Josh: Biceps curls, and Dips for Triceps.


FoW: Whatís the harder thing for you in the gym?

Josh: Nothing really that I can think of.



FoW: What kind of split do you do?

Josh: Biís and Triís


FoW: You have a lot of hardware. In comp prep are you a macro or cal counter?

Josh: Macro


FoW: What kind of foods do you eat during prep?

Josh: Brown Rice, Chicken, Egg whites, Tuna, Fish, Rice Cakes



FoW: On the hardware talk just what are the standings so far?

Josh: Not sure

FoW: When you started out did you or your family think this was possible?

Josh: yes I did and they did as well.

FoW: What would you tell a w/c person just starting out in bodybuilding?

Josh: To have fun and continue to do it as long as they are able. You will meet a lot of great people.


FoW: I personal know how hard it is to compete as a Natural w/c BBer, what has been your biggest hurdle?

Josh: Knowing that I am natural and that some of the other guys I have competed may not be, but I am not here to judge.


FoW: Do you think the type of chair you have changes your standings? Or should?

Josh: Yes to a point. I your back on your chair is high and the judges canít see you back all the way it may count some what against but I am not for sure.



FoW: With the new developments in the INBF and the Natural world in the w/c class, do you see yourself competing at tested shows more often?

Josh: I hope so if I have the money for all the expenses.


FoW: I know you havenít competed in 2010. Is there and plans or a show budged in your future?

Josh: Maybe next year in May at Natural show in Minnesota


FoW: I would like to thank you very much for taking the time for the interview and wish you all the best in your future.

Good interview Rich. I liked the vid as well. That first right side chest pose really showed some serious muscle.
