Dave Pulcinella was born is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was there, at a young age, that he was introduced to weight training and bodybuilding by his father who was a former competitive Olympic lifter. He embraced this new hobby and began training for competitive bodybuilding at age 18.
From 1983-2007 he enjoyed a very successful career in competitive bodybuilding culminating in his winning countless local and regional titles, 3 state titles and 4 national titles over this time period.
His final competitive efforts were also documented in 3 of the most popular DVDs ever to be made on the sport of bodybuilding. The "Raising the Bar" DVD series has sold tens of thousands of copies around the world and continues to be one of the most popular films of its kind even today.
In 1993, Dave decided to start his own business where he would be able to take his years of knowledge and experience and use it to help others achieve their physical goals. "Pulse Advanced Nutrition" has been doing just that for the past 20 years.
Dave continues to train and further his education on the latest ways to lose fat, build muscle and maintain vibrant health using food and exercise.
