Why I Got Started
I wanted to challenge myself to see if I had what it took to compete in figure with the INBF. I wanted to be a positive role model for my 2 young sons and the students I teach.
How I Did It
I got serious about my goals and took control of my bad habits. I ate 5 small meals a day, went to the gym 4 to 5 days a week, did a ton of cardio and lifted weights. It took a lot of focus and discipline!
* Amino Acids
* Protein Powder
o Chicken breast
o Large salad
o Egg whites
Meal 4: Post-Workout
o Protein shake
On all exercises for each body part I perform 2 compound movements for 3 to 4 sets with a rep range of 8-10 and 2 to 3 isolation movements.
As my contest grew closer I increased the rep range to 10-15 and decreased rest time between sets from 2 or 3 minutes to 1 minute. I added cardio up to 2 times a day – one AM session one PM session.
Suggestions For Others
Don’t let age be a deciding factor. As long as you are able to get up and go, get up and do it! Set a goal and focus on the prize. Average is no longer an option and age is all but a number! Believe in yourself!
