So today marks the start of my prep to my first ever NPC national qualifier bikini competition. I set a goal for myself 2 years ago to get my pro card by my 30th birthday. While this year I turn 29🙊🙈 So it’s about time that I buckle down & make my goal a reality.
I plan on going through a 12 week prep withOUT a coach. I will create my own nutritional & training program. I may attend some posing seminars duwing the 12 weeks, just because I am not sure what the judges look for or how to move & flex fluidly.
I competed last June in The Beachbody Classic & witj only a 5 week prep I placed in the top 10. I did NOT have a coach for this comp either. I created my own training & nutritional program & was able to shred to 15% body fat.
My goal this time around is to come in with a fuller physique and more muscle mass. During winter I was lifting heavy & eating a lot more. I gained 16lbs from my stage weight. I’m not gonna lie this was a dirty bulk. I didn’t keep myself accountable for my bulk due ro building my GYM @TheGrindBodyshop. But it is what it is🍩😜
I will be checking in weekly with myself through my blog & social media post. Every Saturday I will post my progress photos, weight & my emotional expierence for that week.
My nutrition plan will be a combination of IIFYM & carb cyclying.
My Training program will be a shred program where I have medium weight with moderate to high reps. Certain body parts where I need to still build some mass, I will continue with heavey weight low reps; shoulders & legs
I will go through the same peak week as last tome, but this time around I will take daily photos to monitor my bodies progress to see if I need to change my nutrition.
So let the journey begin ☺️
Current Weight: 132.8
Current Body fat: 22.7%
Current muscle mass: 34.8%
Arms: L 11.5 unflexed R 11.25 unflexed
Waist: 27 livehandles 31.5
Legs: L 21 R 22
Its’s always hard to see yourself in photos. I am my worst critic & I am for sure not happy woth these results. But that is one of the reasons I decided it was time for me to compete. It will hold me more accountable to get back to tracking my progress & reaching my goals.
