Hey guys, welcome
As you can see by the title, this is going to be a long log- I've created two in the past, for my on/offseasons but I think from now on it is appropriate to have one big log that allows me to take thorough notes throughout my journey.
I highly appreciate any feedback, and respond very well to constructive criticism- so let me have it!
Throughout this log, I will be recording:
-My daily macros
-How I'm feeling each day
-My headspace during the journey
-Observations I have while working out.
All weights listed will be using the Metric system!
As a kid I always wanted to be a fitness model, I liked the idea of having a platform to communicate charisma, and inspiring others to follow a similar lifestyle. I had quite a bit of an obstacle though- I was 115kg at highschool (17-18 years old). I worked out twice a day at school, but with no knowledge/education- I was wondering in the dark.
I managed to shed down to 92kg at the end of school, and did concrete laying for 6 months after where I got down to 86kg. University started, as well as stress/pressures to do with starting a new lifestyle- I ballooned back up to 110kg. I hated myself for this, and after I turned 20, I decided enough was enough. I shredded back down to 87kg (9-10% BF), got a bit of lean body mass and fulfilled my goal of competing at 21. I qualified for NZ Nationals at this show by placing top 3, and decided to train even harder towards this show. I came against what was quoted 'The most competitive category in years' I didn't place top 3 at this show, but came in at a personal best- 86kg at 6% bodyfat.
Before I started prepping for first competition:
1 week before Nationals:
Here we are in a new year, I've started dieting down for my shows this year- I'm currently sitting at 93.8kg 13 weeks out from my first show of the year- Auckland Champs- May 18th I'm doing an INBA show after this (Natural, tested) in June. After these shows, The nationals for both federations are in October.
Feeling confident this year to do some damage!
Thank you all for your support so far, I appreciate it a lot! I learn something new from you guys everyday! Can't communicate it enough./.. THANK YOU!
Let's see how much of a hustle this pro card is to get.
