My competition with INBF Canada on May 31st marked 3 years since I started lifting weights. The beginning of May 2011 I weighed 210 lbs. and did not like what I saw which had me go on the first diet in my life at 46.
At the end of May I had lost 15 lbs. and still was not happy with how I looked so I started to workout. Out of the last three years I would say I have dieted for two of them. This last year alone has been all dieting except for 2 months of maintaining my weight at 190 lbs. before starting my official contest prep.
During these three years I competed in bodybuilding competitions in 2012 and 2014 and I am thrilled to death with the results and the progress I have made from the first competition to now.
Now that I have really dialed in my conditioning I am eager to spend the next few years focusing on building muscle as I don’t feel I have really had the opportunity to maximize my potential in this area yet and am eager to see just how much addition muscle I can gain.
Natural bodybuilding is a slow process that takes hard work and consistent effort both in the gym and with your diet to see the results you want to see. You can accelerate your results by working with a good coach who will help you stay on track and avoid many of the pitfalls. Coaching services I personally vouch for and recommend are listed under Coaching on the top menu of the site.
