Transformation of a Figure Competitor – Week 10

A lot is going on with less than 4 weeks to go.  Some days I am tired and other days I am totally fine.  It depends on whether or not I teach class.  Even though I do not use heavy weight and just use my body weight for demonstrating purposes, my legs burn beyond belief.  Those are the days I wish for a power nap in the middle of the day.  With the increase of my cardio to a full hour and my weight training incorporated by plyometrics, some days I really have to dig in to get through it.

With all of the blood, sweat and tears comes passion, devotion and discipline to the sport. I absolutely love it.

My body fat percentage is floating around 9.5 % and with still a good few weeks to go, I can see myself really beginning to transform as I begin practicing more and more.  With my calorie burn at approximately 3300, it’s no wonder the body fat melts away.  This whole scientific journey amazes me every time.

I hosted my figure workshop this past Sunday and all of my girls not only had their brain pumped with much information on stage presence and prepping but a wonderful time as well.  They each walked away with a bit more confidence and that is all I can ask for.  This can be an overwhelming event but with good guidance, it will not feel so unknown.

In anything you do in life, practice is the key.  Going through the motions over and over will make one better and improve.  The more I practice with competing, I learn more every time.  With knowledge I get better and with my physique I get better.  With all of this comes great health, too.  The dotFIT supplements not only help you keep a healthy lifestyle but help you attain it as well.  As I have said in the past, vitamins and supplements help your body in the assistance it needs to perform and maintain.

On the topic of performance, my workouts are almost an event worth watching.  I have been throwing a heavy bag over my shoulder and running with it for 32 yds back and forth.  Or taking a 30 pound sledge hammer and slamming it for five rounds of 25 reps. Sounds good huh?  I really love it!  Let’s not leave out the squat thrusts or mountain climbers.  The list goes on and on and so when a day is completed it’s the best feeling of accomplishment that I could ever feel.  I have to thank Warren for that or should I say my personal Apollo Creed.  That’s what I have been calling him lately!
