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 per week, did a ton of cardio and lifted weights. It took a lot of focus and discipline!
Meal 4: Post-Workout
| Compound & Isolation Movements:
Compound exercises are exercises that involve two or more joint movements. These are usually better overall mass and strength builders. Isolation exercises involve just one joint movement. These are better for targeting one muscle at a time.
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!
