What’s up everyone. So it’s definitely been a good minute since I’ve had the opportunity to post anything here, buuuuutt it’s for good reason. So your favorite trainer’s favorite trainer (<—see what I did there lol), has been training since late October to compete in my first ever bodybuilding competition. The show was March 17, and I competed in the Men’s Classic Physique Division (novice and open) at the NPC Miles Natural Western USA Championships. (I’ll be posting about the different divisions later).
First things first, the competition and training experience was absolutely AWESOME!!!! I’m a personal trainer, so I have the opportunity to help people achieve some great things. But to refocus, reset and re-evaluate how every individual change/variable directly impacts the body on such an in depth level was truly enjoyable for me.
I actually hired a coach for the prep process, who just happens to be a great friend of mine and a professional bodybuilder himself. So that made the process even more enjoyable. And it definitely led to the results of two top 5 finishes in my first ever show.
Overall, it was such a great experience, and definitely something that I will be looking toward doing again in the future. In fact, I’ve already begun prep for my next show (aiming for July 2018). So I’ll keep you all posted.
