INTERVIEW:Jose Ramon Oliva
Shares Secrets of his Stunning Look
I receive compliments on my almond-shaped eyes and my arms. I don't believe in focusing on any particular body part. I work out every part of my body equally.
It's dependent on the goal that I am focusing on. Right now I'm in my bulking stage, so my work outs consist of:
Wed: Light Off
Saturday: Light Cardio/Abs
PLAIN BORING DIET!! For bulking I eat everything possible (healthy food, of course).
My menu: Eggs,oats, brown rice, chicken, vegetables, fish, whole wheat bread, potatoes, peanut butter (all natural), nuts.
I try to avoid salt, sugar and unhealty, unnecessary fats. The only ingredient I will add is black pepper.
I got into modeling because of my sister. She always told me I had a different look and should test the waters to see what becomes of it. Of course I told her she was stupid and didnt pursue it. Then, the more and more I was out and about, I had random people constantly ask me if I was a model. At age 20, I did a shoot with a chick I met at a bar. I got a LOT of web hits and compliments. I became serious about modeling at 22. Although I've done a few shoots on a TF [Time For Photos] basis for publicity sake, I've had the opportunity to do work with some local companies modeling their products. That to me is the most exciting feeling, having companies ask me to model their trade, and the increased exposure in this profession.
Besides working out, do you play any sports?
Back in high school I use to run track and field as well as play football. At the moment, the only sport I do is slacklining.
I work at a local hospital on a lift team as well as go to school for glassblowing. I hope to one day pursue a commercial modeling career as well as play music in a rock band.
To follow me, the best way would be:
THANK YOU ! Without you I would not be able to share this information about myself. Your site is just spectacular. Thank you, too, for supporting me as well as up-and-coming models in getting our names out there.
