ZONE:Tell us abit about yourself!
JESPER: Ive been training for 19 years & I have just bought a house with my lady!
We got everything but the kid now..LOL!

ZONE:How did you got bit by the iron bug in the first place
& how did ya get into competing?

JESPER: A friend took me to the gym & I was hooked!
I did get results fast so my friends taught me in to competition
& then I was hooked for real!

ZONE:What is the best part of this sport?

JESPER: It makes you feel good & you meet alot of nice people...
I also like the changes in my body!

ZONE:And the worst part?
JESPER: People stereotyping us bodybuilders...
When it comes to competition the sick ripped look has gone overboard.

ZONE:What is your diet like?
Both offseason & before a show?

JESPER: I guess that that part of the sport is easy for me as I just dont get fat.
But I do eat clean year round & is always in fairly good shape.
On the weekends I eat junk though...

ZONE:And what about your training.
Offseason & before a show?
JESPER:Well I guess that I do train a bit too much..
But I feel soo good when Im at the gym!
When it comes to contest preparations Im really hard on myself as I just hate to loose!
My mindset is all about winning!

ZONE:Where do you think most people go wrong before a show?
JESPER: I have a problem myself...
I always start to listen to other people what to do at the end of a diet & screw things up...
I think that is a common problem within our sport.
I also think too many people are affraid of carbing-up.

ZONE:Who is your bigest inspiration & rolemodell thru the years?
JESPER:Without a doubt Anders Graneheim...& Lee Priest.

ZONE:Future plans?
JESPER:I have plans of competing again in 2007...
Dont know what show yet...
But my biggest goal right now is to trying to have a kid!
