Uphill Journey to Competition: Episode 2

Slight delay, but here is the next installment of my video series!  Below the video link, I’ve also shared my “before” pictures.  These images were taken at the start of my contest prep.  I’ve also included my stats.  We’ll see how these values change as we progress through prep!

Beginning Stats (as of January 8, 2018)

The below images show the four main poses for figure competing.  I still have a lot of practice to do on posing, but I’ll get there!  Anyway, you can see the extra fluff I’ve accumulated in my mid-section and face.  I’ve seen the greatest amount of muscle growth in my quads, so I’m hoping I can narrow out my waist to make my shoulders look a bit broader.  We still have 4+ months to go, so that’s plenty of time….I hope!

Uphill Journey to Competition: A New Video Series!

A few weeks ago, I posted a video to my Facebook page talking about a new video series I was thinking about doing.  This wouldn’t be anything fancy, but just some simple videos of me talking about my challenging journey as a physique competitor.

I received some feedback that people were interested, so I’m going to do my best to record some short update videos as I progress through my contest prep over the next several months.

I’ll post a link to the first video I recorded below.  Please drop a comment in the video’s comments box, or give it a thumbs up if you like the idea and want to see more!

Thank you!
