I have always trained but when I was younger it was mainly swimming and aerobic, in my teens I played a lot of volleyball.
I have trained with weights since 1983 but just to keep fit, it was not until 2003 I seriously started with bodybuilding.
My first goal was just to compete for the experience, and I decided to attend Decembercupen and Luciapokalen the same year, Swedish yearly competitions.
I was lucky to win my first competition as a debutant at 47; it gave me a kick to go on.
I train my whole body once a week divided at 4 times, 4 sets with 8 reps and 3 or 4 different exercises on each muscle group. I try to change exercises now and then, to get some variation.
Monday - Chest/shoulders
Tuesday - Legs/calves
Wednesday - Rest
Thursday - Arms
Friday - Back/stomach
Sunday - Rest
To keep my metabolism high I walk one hour before breakfast three times a week. Before a competition I walk or bicycle two orthree Hours per day.
My best body parts are my arms, back and shoulders and my focus now is to work hard on my legs.

I believe that you always have to eat well to feel good and to get the most out of your training. The only difference before a contest is that I cut down on fat, carbohydrates and the amount of food.
This is what I eat:
Fish, shrimps, tuna, chicken, eggs and red meat with salads and vegetables. I use oil for cooking, cashew for snacks. The only complex carbohydrates I eat is oatmeal for breakfast and sometimes whole-wheat bread.
I love to be by the sea, spend time with my family and friends.
