Debut season as IFBB Pro: 1998 German Grand Prix, the ninth place
The best placement of the Mr. Olympia: 2004-05, 3rd place

During the first 6 years of professional career, he competed 17 times. 9 times ended with no result or was below the 15 cities, only three times in the top 10. He was very massive and solid proportions, but he is constantly out in bad shape. Once he was in shape, and in 2002, took the 3rd place. That gave him entry into the Mr. Olympia that year, where he finished 24th out of 25 competitors. Painfully?

The following year he went only in one competition, where he also lost his placement. There would most of them threw the towel and give up, but he was finally in good shape and in the spring of 2004 finished seventh at the Arnold Classic. After that is done the biggest (positive) shock in his career, when in 2004 entered the top 3 at the Mr. Olympia, but also repeated a year later. Three times he finished in the top 10 in the competition, and in those years he won three titles in other competitions.

His incredible leap of 21 places compared to two consecutive Mr. O competition (24th place at once, 3rd place to the next) record that will probably never be broken.
