I decided not to compete for a full year to work on gaining some size. Although I've done well at the competitions I've done, it's apparent that I'm small compared to other competitors. There are A LOT of reasons for that. First, my age; second, my genetics; third, I didn't start lifting until very late in life. However, I do have quads!
I will journal this season in all honesty with no filter. I've posted previously, "so you think you want to compete". What people see is the final results on stage - not all the stages in between - the bulking, the prep, the progress, the fluffiness. This is all part of it.
My goal this year is to come in more defined and shredded than I have in the past. The reason for this is that I'm a small competitor. This is a relative term. At my day job, I look beastly. I look fairly beastly at the gym. Put me on stage with these amazing women and you see just how small I am.
Steady does it. Nothing drastic. Nothing unhealthy. Just slow and steady progress.
So, here I share with you my journey to competition this year.
Full disclosure - no filter - no makeup or hair done - and at times sick.
I'm six weeks out from the Kentucky Muscle and seven weeks from the NPC Kentucky Natural Classic.
