It's all learning, practice makes progress!. Always striving for higher heights.
.
I've already got my goals set for 2019! I've had my ups & downs over the last 3 shows but 1 thing is for sure, they have all taught me new lessons & inspired me to adapt!.
.
They say that this sport is subjective & they are 110% correct. The judges say is final after all but give them every reason to look no further! If you keep working for it, it will come! If you're hungry enough, Hunt!

What a difference a week makes!.
.
That's a wrap for the 2018 #bodybuilding season for me & what a rollercoaster it's been.
.
Taking my first ever gold at @nbfi_ireland to not feeling confident, controlled or comfortable at #ribbf2018 last weekend.
.
When I was waiting on the top 6 to be called yesterday at @nabbawffireland all that was going through my head was "if you go home here with a placing (top 6) you go home a proud man",
.
I never expected to take home second place with an invite to the @nabbainternational & @wff_international world & universe competitions.
.
This has given me a lot to think about in regards to competing for Ireland Internationally but for now it's back to relaxing (a little) getting stronger in all aspects of my physique, mentally & business and spending some quality time with @dreamsdonutsanddumbells!.
.
A massive heartfelt thank you to the whole team who put together an amazing show again this year & worked tirelessly to make sure we were all well looked after & also to @aj_hindrance & @karolinajedrusik for coming to support me! It means the world to have that support!.
.
A lesson very much learned, there is no shame in falling down when you get back up so much stronger!. πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈπŸ₯ˆ

Slightly different approach to this #peakweek from last.
.
I didn't take out training atall this time & feel so much better in my #physique with doing so.
.
Weight is the same this week as when I stepped on stage for my win at @nbfi_ireland so bring on tomorrow & whatever placing I get at @nabbawffireland I'm sure it will be exactly what I deserve! πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ

20 weeks of prep almost complete!.

Excited to see the finish line & to step on stage for the last time in #2018 & to build for the 2019 season again!.

I can't wait to help many more clients to improve on their journeys & to enjoy lots more time with my family & friends.

Still striving for that top 6 placing at #ribbf!.
.
I can't stop thinking about the small things that I could have done differently & better & that's what makes me come back stronger each time.
.
New goals are set! @nabbawffireland is my 3rd & final show for the year. I'll be working hard from next week on my 2019 shape. Bigger & better to come from me!.
.
What are your #2019goals?.

Another one ticked off the list! Had a nice chest & shoulders session @warehousegym32 today alongside my partner in crime on our way home from #RIBBF.
.
Headed home, not deflated but determined after not placing this weekend. I'll review where i went wrong on this one & correct it.
.
Now it's on to @nabbawffireland on Sunday with a fresh approach & a fresher mindset after a busy week of clients ahead!.
.
Again as always thank you so much to everyone for the continued support.

Bodybuilding never looked so glamorous! 🀣.

We go through months of hard work, strict eating & mental challenges all the get to the end, remove all our body hair & get a tan! What a life we lead eh? πŸ˜‚.

5 long months coming very close to an end!.

I'm not quite sure how women do this posing crack on nights out & not look totally ridiculous like this! πŸ˜†.

Still staying as strong as possible with #1week to go!..
.
Something that has been tough this past few days however is the mindset & the tricks it plays.
.
I haven't been the most amazing guy to be around & as much as I try to mask that it gets really tough. I'm 18 weeks in to prep now with 6am starts most days! 10pm wind down time & not sleeping too soundly,
BUT IM STILL WORKING!
.
I have had to say my apologies to Marian here & there because I've been a ball of emotion at times but I'm man enough to admit my wrongs & she's behind me all the way! ❀.
.
We just keep reminding ourselves that this is a temporary thing & it will pass very soon! Commitment & goal setting however should remain constant! If you gave up every time something got hard you would never achieve anything.
.
Keep consistant & stay true to you. If this is your first #prep or you have to deal with someone who is prepping just know that everything is going to be more than fine! There are tough days but work through them as a #team & it becomes so much easier!.

Sorry I'm so inactive on here #fitfam. I'm just trying to focus on finishing what has been a long & intense 20 week prep (Just over 2 weeks to go).
.
It's been difficult at times but others have brought me to new heights, from being very tired daily to winning my first show @nbfi_ireland but I have an amazing support system in @dreamsdonutsanddumbells, her beautiful girls, my family,friends & clients & I'm taking this opportunity to thank them al (i could only tag 20 but i am so grateful to every one of you.❀.
.
l also want to wish everyone competing over the next number of weeks the very best of luck in their shows. .
Remember that competing is a privilege & one to thoroughly enjoy when you get there. Stay humble & do not let results change your core self no matter how you place. (,Remember it's the judges own opinion). Compete for you!!.
.
I know in my heart I'm going to bring my best to stage & to anyone competing at #ribbf & @nabbawffireland I shall see you there!.

We're getting tiny again! (Not that I was ever big) πŸ™ˆ. .
#2weeksout. It's only another 3 weeks until I can finally get myself back into a comfortable frame of mind.
.
Because this is just what prep is, it's uncomfortable. It pushes you way beyond the realms of comfort to achieve things that most will not attempt. If it doesn't then you're probably not working as hard as you could be!.
.
There are so many drawbacks to doing what we do & for me I make it tougher by staying Natural. This is my choice & I am proud to say that it's been tough but I did it anyway & yet the reward far outweighs every little downside.
.
Consistency has been a key for the last 17 weeks but I am ready to get back to normality. The body doesn't want to stay in this state & neither do your hormone levels. (Sorry babe) πŸ™ˆ but the finish line is in site.
.
After winning my first comp of the year @nbfi_ireland I go in to the next two with hopes of making a good account of myself! I'll be proud if I can say I've placed in 2 maybe 3 shows in one year, but that my friends is down to the judges.
.
See you all at @nabbawffireland & #ribbf.
