          First off, being from the Boston area you are one of the only local guys I look up too in this sport. When you began when you were younger what helped you put on the mass? What foods where a staple for you, did you stick to the basic compound movements?

            You hit the nail on the head Jay. I stayed leaner in the offseason, and I killed the Stepmill, they literally need to replace the Stepmills in my gym. Other than that I didnt do a whole lot different as far as my diet.

              Thank you aldeanz, that means a lot to me. When I was younger I could get away with a lot more mishaps in my diet and still grow and come in shape. I would typically diet all summer and do a show at the end of the summer like USA or Team Universe then I would go straight off to football camp and try to beef up as much as possible. Back then I would eat all the typical college foods pizza,calzones, chinese food along with a few healthy breakfasts and lunches in the cafetarial. There were times I would get up to 215 or even 220 and diet all the way back down to light weight 154lbs. My workouts consisted mostly of power, compound movements like squats,dead,cleans and bench presses because like I said this was for football and back then, that was my main priority for most of the year til the summer hit.

                  Thank you, much appreciated. That is a mantra I try to live by! if you work hard and keep positive, people will feed off of it and you will eventually be rewarded for your efforts.

                    Jose, im in my early 20s, been training hard now for 6 years, I do bodybuilding style training after years of strongman/powerlifting training and would say I have a physique capable of doing well at bodybuilding shows. Ive never had a coach for bodybuilding in relation to diet and how to bulk up. I basically go by servings with my meals and dont weight food out ever.

                    In offseason, what did you tend to do in your early stages of training, did you just eat as much clean food as possible, did you ever have a coach in your early years of bodybuilding or was goerge farah a recent addition too...... I kind of want to do offseason training and diet mysel as I feel i know my body well but am not sure if I might hinder progress by not having a coach,

                      Jose, What sort of protein intake do you recommend in the off season? How heavy do you train and what rep ranges do you train in?

                      Thanks.

                          what brand of that popcorn cheese powder do you use for your eggs? same question for the defatted peanut flour.

                          also, awesome job at the ny pro. you looked amazing. i look forward to seeing you kick ass at the olympia as well. i've been watching some of your training clips and they've inspired some of the best workouts i've had all year. those dumbell tricep extensions on the incline bench have been awesome. much more comfortable and a better stretch for me than a two handed extension.

                            Hey Jose,

                            I love your work ethic man, I'm sure this is going to be a great year for you. You are a beast with legs, loved your front squat video with Ron Harris.

                            1) I am a competitive powerlifter (130-145lb class). Would front squats be of any benefit to me or should I just focus on regular squats?

                            2) If you give the thumbs up for front squats, do you think it's okay to do them as well as regular squats in the same workout?

                            Thanks in advance JIM.

                              You are probably too young to know that I have a older brother Tito who was a lot more popular than I am and was a national level competitor and 3 time Team Universe champion as well as a pretty boy cover model for many years. I was blessed to have him help me from making too many mistakes at a young age, however we never weighed our meals and just kind of made sure we ate enough of the right stuff by eyeballing it. It wasnt until I met George that I began weighing each and every meal and I quickly realized I was not eating enough. I now weigh every meal and it has made a tremendous difference in my putting on muscle in the last year.
