    IFPA Pro & Scivation Athlete Tommy Jeffers ~ The Never Ending Quest To Be The Best

    Once again...MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! I can't say enough how humbling it was to do as well as I did this last contest year and place ahead of so many top notch natural bodybuilders. I set out on a mission after I won my natural pro card in 2007 to make some noticeable improvements over a 2.5 year period and step on the pro stage, hopefully placing in the top 5, and actually looking like I belong up there. Not only did I blow my old physique out of the water, but I ended up taking the overall in both shows I entered, one of which was my very first pro show! Wow...what a feeling - words can't even describe it! For those that didn't know, the 2 shows I ended up doing were:

    NPC Natural Northern USAs
    IFPA Cape Cod Gaspari Classic

    This last time around, I implemented several different approaches - some of which go WAY against the grain - in order to see for myself what difference (if any) these approaches made in the overall look of a physique. But, in order to do that, I had to get EXTREMELY lean. I'm talking glute striations, split hamstrings, no fat left in the joints, and downright cranky and irritable at EVERYTHING lean, in order to really see what was really going on. Fortunately, just about everything I did worked, and worked really well. I found myself at the end of my prep with a physique that even I couldn't recognize when I would see my progress pictures. It's an incredible feeling to put in so much hard work and actually see a physique you never even knew you had!

    But, like I've said many times before - one of the greatest things about this sport is that the work is NEVER done! I fully intend on taking another 2-2.5 years off of competing to make even more noticeable improvements, and stepping back on stage at yet another all-time best against some even more stacked up lineups! I have my eye on quite a few top notch shows for my next round of competing. The ultimate goal I have right now is I eventually want to do the NPC Team Universe. That is a show I really want to do at some point, but I know I have a ways to go if I am going to be able to compete at that level in the weight class I will inevitably be in (light heavyweight). Now that I know around what weight I ultimately can get bone-dry shrinkwrapped at (185-186), I have a good 10lbs to build to fill out that weight class in order to really give the Team Universe a good run. So we will have to see how the next few years pan out and what kind of improvements I can make.

    Aside from that, I will most definitely be aiming towards the IFPA Gaspari Classic again in Cape Cod. James Carron puts on one heck of a show, and is honestly one of the best shows I've ever been to and/or competed in. After that, it will definitely be the Yorton Cup as well. I really wanted to compete in it this year, but my wife was pregnant with our first child, and there was no way I was going to be able to pull it off with it being so close to her due date - I was lucky enough just to compete at all this year LOL! But that just shows how amazing my wife really is There are a couple of other shows in other natural organizations I am looking at as well, like the NGA Universe, but it will ultimately depend on the scheduling and the rules (if they will still accept IFPA pro cards) at that time as to whether or not I will be able to compete in them. Anyway, that's a tentative look at the near future plans I have as far as competing goes!

    In the meantime, I am on a mission to make this offseason even more successful than the last one. Every single time I see a bodybuilding show, it looks like the bar gets raised higher and higher. And now, doing as well as I did this year, the bar I set for myself is even higher. That means that there is no room this offseason for any setbacks! I will have my challenges and obstacles just like everyone else, but I have my goals set for the next couple of years and I have every intention of reaching every one of them and bringing an all new and improved physique to the stage in a couple years.

    This log will consist of a lot more details, videos, movie quotes, thoughts, random life events, and sometimes it may even be just a place to vent or tell funny stories (now that I am a new daddy, I have plenty of those!). So without further ado, welcome to my journal and I appreciate you all stopping by and following along these next few years! If anyone has any questions, comments, feedback, etc., please post! This log is for us all to learn and make ourselves better! I will outline my diet, training, and supplement approaches so that everyone can see exactly what I am doing and how I go about implementing this sport into my life!

    In the next few posts, I will post some pictures from the IFPA Cape Cod Gaspari Classic where I ended up winning my very first pro show! My main training goals currently are my back width/depth, chest thickness, quad sweep, and some trap development. As I enter into my next rotation of my split, I will outline how I am training right now and how I am eating and supplementing to reach my goals! Again, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all continue to do so to chat and leave feedback!

    Hey Tommy you already know what a huge inspiration to me you have been but why not say it one more time. I always enjoy reading your thoughts in these journals and I hope you will be posting some videos as you attack your physique again. I look forward to hanging with you, Kera and the baby as soon as we can.

    Enjoy fatherhood and go Colts!

I look forward to hanging with you, Kera and the baby as soon as we can.

    Enjoy fatherhood and go Patriots!

    Tommy, would you be able to describe your peak week? Did you really change things or were you so lean that all you had to do was maintain through the shows?
    Thanks, Trevor

    Thanks Jim! I appreciate the comment, but I would still get killed in the size department for my weight class....and with it being a top level NPC show, I doubt my conditioning my trump the lack of upper body size. Maybe in a few years I can bring up my upper body thickness to really give it a run!

    Thanks Paul - I most certainly will! I will be starting the videos as soon as my strength gets closer to normal. But in the meantime, I will be sharing some other stuff as well!

    That's right - I definitely need another couple of years to bring my physique to the level it needs to be at in order to do well at all the top level shows. I know my weak points and I will be hammering away at them as much as possible.

    My glutes were definitely the talk of the show. The feedback I got from the judges was that the back side of my legs really made a big difference. I had no idea my glutes would stay that big as I got lean. I mean, I knew they were big, but I didn't know that they would stay that big lol.

    Hey Trevor,

    I really did change quite a bit form what I did last time. I tapered water, I used Scivation Showtime, I loaded up on green tea, I ate asparagus, I manipulated sodium, I manipulated potassium, etc. But the real key was being lean enough in the first place for any of that to matter.

    Also, I even changed things a bit from the first show to the second show, and I ended up tightening up even more. What was great about the whole experience was being able to see what all was doing what throughout the final 2 weeks (my peak week is actually 2 weeks, not 1).
