I started training for the upcoming European WBFF show 6-7 weeks ago.
I have trained for a long time but never have I seen such massive changes in such a short space of time.
It’s actually freaked me out at all these new changes at first. now have this bootay and hamstrings and lats and arms! Although my coach has been away for a month and I have no idea what my stats are. My body feels firm, muscular but I’ve never felt more feminine in my life.
Getting my head around it and embracing the fact my body is taking all of this training and eating on board so readily. So excited to see the changes flow in the upcoming months! #WBFF #London 2013 I’m all yours..
Big thanks to my coach Chris Dufey he’s the man. And all the punks that continuously help, support and pump out a few reps with me. 💪
Big aroha (kiwi for love) ❤
It’s crunch time. Our last week. This is where all those countless hours of hard work for months come to shine.
All that chicken, all those greens and all that sweat and yes even tears pay off!
Every set and rep
The energy you put into it
The mental state in which you hold
Your game face
The precise portions
The precious minutes that you sleep and rest
Eeeeveeeerrrry little tiiiiiny detail counts!
I know your brains are probably mush right now but
make it better than ANYTHING you’ve ever done to date.
Lets go in with a blaze of glory and ROCK THE JOINT!!!
So far I’ve shared workouts, motivation, food, photos and mostly kept it light and fun. I’ve yet to touch on the most important aspect of training for competition and that’s the psychological factor. The mental game.
When you have training twice a day, strictly adhering to portion sizes and specific types of food and making sure you get 8 hours of quality sleep day in and day out. It really tests your mental strength and having a support network is more than vital.
I have always been one to train hard and regularly. Eat well and the art of a magic nights rest is still in the pre-production stages but having experienced the last 4 months getting ready for comp has blown everything I’ve done previously out of the water. I know that no matter what happens here everything about my persona is stronger. Physically and mentally hands down.
I found an article from a female body builder who puts everything into easy perspective for anyone looking in.
7 weeks to go until the Fitness Universe competition in Paris!
It’s my first one and it’s been an incredible journey thus far. I have made some amazing friends who are also on this fitness path and I’m loving the camaraderie.
I have always been one to train hard and eat clean but this adventure has taken it to a whole new level! Trying to put on muscle mass has been super hard work. I’m a petite girl by nature. No cheats and pure dedication to daily training and eating correctly.
I had to laugh though because I frequently have women asking me for training/nutrition advice on how to look ‘fit and toned with muscular definition but not bulk out!‘ Trust me ladies, you will not bulk out!! I have been purposefully training and eating to achieve muscle gains and it is hard, hard work!!
Don’t be afraid to go heavy, don’t get caught up in calories think more about what type of food you are fuelling your body with (macro’s) and always go further than you think your capable of. DREAM BIG!
Stay tuned for more updates over the next coming weeks till comp time! Exciting!!
