Happy Tuesday Everyone.
In honour of #TransformationTuesday and the start of the new competitive season being underway, let's talk comp prep. This picture was taken when I was 4 weeks out from one of my competitions (the exact show escapes my memory but I'll hazard a guess, it was probably one of the World Games). This was my condition at this stage, ready to coast into full show condition without any stress, no need for excessive cardio, no need to go overboard in the weights room because at this stage you simply won't have the energy - ready to bring the body into its full peak. This is what a decent contest prep should be like. Baring in mind you have already had a sufficient and effective off season or build up and you are following your diet and training regime to the letter as you're getting ready for your show, generally speaking, the prep stress should be minimal.
There are too many athletes that don't listen to their coaches, or at best PARTIALLY adhere to plans and don't allow for enough time during their build up & preparation. You cannot be half hearted during your entire prep then come 2 weeks out, expect to suddenly drop 20lbs to be stage ready whilst wishing and asking your coach for that magic formula.
Follow the step, be extremely disciplined and focused, remain consistent and as the weeks our draw to single figures you shouldn't have any major issues come show day.
Wishing you all the best on your preps this season. Enjoy the journey.

The human body is an amazing thing. I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No ones perfect, and that’s the beauty of being human 🙇🏼♀️ Let’s stop body shaming and stop being negative towards each other. The world has enough hate in it without people adding more. I’m tired of reading things like, oh she’s just posting naked pictures for likes 😴 If all you can see is a naked body then the issue could be with you? Art, dedication, progress, determination, love, blood,sweat and tears. Everyone has an opinion, but it’s not always necessary to say it 🤫 #nomorehate#bewhoyouwanttobe
