What is it you are trying to do different from everyone
else in your field?
PAUL: I don't know about everyone else, but I am strongly trying to push drug free bodybuilding. There are others doing the same thing, but of course there are many that aren't.
Now that female bodybuilding is all but dead and the
IFBB has come down and told the fitness competitors
to soften up, where is the future?
PAUL: I hope towards a more sane, drug free standard for bodybuilding.
Have you heard of any new trends that are on the horizon
many of us aren't aware of yet?
PAUL: I will tell you this, the drug situation in bodybuilding will come to a head in the next 10 or 20 years. It can't keep getting worse like it has and not eventually blow up.
If you could achieve one huge thing in your field, what
would it be?
PAUL: Bring aesthetics back to bodybuilding. Who cares if a bodybuilder is close to 300 pounds if his waist is huge and he just looks like a big block. Let's see bodies like Bob Paris, Frank Zane and Steve Reeves again.
If success is measured in means of money earned, what
truly is success, and why do you feel those with more
than that want more and more?

admire and want to work with?
PAUL: Don Lemmon, of course.
What would you have them do different?
PAUL: Get a haircut and get a real job.
In the real world, we have what you do. Some go freelance
because the clients demand it. Others do this because
the powers that be are a pain in the ass. Why is that?
PAUL: I wish I knew why people act the way they do. I guess fear that they will lose out.
What would be the ideal work environment?
PAUL: Where the whole group shared the same purpose and worked together in a well organized push towards those goals.
What are your latest and most immediate plans?
PAUL: Just to continue to research training, diets and supplements that give results for drug free trainees.
One hard selling point so my readers will say "WOW"

When you were your best, what was your routine?
PAUL: The Truly Huge program, of course.
When you were in your best shape, what was your diet?

What was the funniest thing about my 97 minute demo

Describe to me your hardest workout. The one where you
had a partner and you didn't give up for fear he would
PAUL: Well I was training with this cannibal once, he was eating a clown, and he passed some to me and asked "does this taste funny to you?". Really my hardest workout involved 20 reps squats, when I felt like I was going to die at 12 reps, but somehow got all 20.
I saw "Any Given Sunday" the other day and it was a
huge promotional tool for Metrx. That **** BLOWS. Not
out of envy, out of plain disgust for junk being sold
to us as good for you. What product gets under your
PAUL: Weight Gain Powders, that are so high in sugar that you gain weight all right - fat weight.
