HONESTY IS BRUTAL and it doesn’t get any more brutal then being completely honest with yourself and that’s what I am about to do.
I want to start with saying that competing at the Arnold’s @arnoldsportsau @ifbbproleagueoz is an achievement that sits right at the top of the list of things I’ve done and is by far the biggest and best. This experience of the competition and the prep and even the off season for it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I am super proud of my achievement and have ticked the box next to (compete at Arnold’s)
Now for the brutal honesty, while this is definitely the best physique I have presented on stage I am disappointed when I see the photos on stage. This is because when I started the prep I had a goal in my head and I chased that goal right up until the moment I stepped on the Arnold stage. I’m disappointed that I didn’t reach my goal here and it’s not about the placing it’s because I know I can do better then this and I absolutely will next time I compete.
Don’t get me wrong I didn’t half ass this prep I gave it everything I had and it broke me quite a few times. It wasn’t from lack of trying that I didn’t reach my goal, it’s from lack of understanding how to get there.
I’m really not sure how long this process will be and when my next competition will be but it will be my best when it happens 💪
