This is a long one. Continue, if you want... But youve been forewarned.
📌 1st. I'd like to say, as a competitor, there's a moment when you see it.. the athlete beneath all the work you've put in. This person, that every practice, every rep, every meal you're waiting on to come out of your being to remind yourself that you got this... Today was that moment for me.
I practice posing A LOT and I still stink at it, but posing makes a huge difference in bodybuilding. You can have a perfect physique and with bad posing you'll never see it... And you can have a mediocre physique and with great posing do well. So, I practice. And normally I get frustrated... I know she's there but I can't see her. I can't see that athlete that lives in the gym, eats all the time, follows the plan.. today, she was there and I got the glimpse of her. And despite not really wanting to share my posing trials this close to a show, I'm posting it because I'm proud of it.
📌2nd. I wanted to say I'm extremely happy to have found a coach that could see the athlete under the fat I started with 6 weeks ago and agreed to do this show prep with me. I wanted/needed this and, while I've done it before... Doing it without a coach or with the wrong coach makes it a thousand times more difficult. @abfitt_ifbbpro took me in under his guild for this prep and at half way through, I know I made the absolutely right choice for me. I'm extremely confident in, and super excited to see, what package he is helping me bring to the the stage.
