This week has been another tough week, but things are progressing. I am pretty much always tired and ALWAYS hungry, I expected this. I think it is pretty normal for this stage of the game. I have not made any changes to my diet as I cannot afford to cut anything else out as I will start to loose size. The last couple of weeks have been pretty tough in terms of dieting. I am starting to get pretty hungry throughout the day and at night.
My training is going very well, my workouts are still very intense and I am still pushing some heavy weights. This aspect has surprised me quit a bit, my last show I got very week near the end. I believe that having a training partner this time is what is making the difference.
I have been training alone for the last 3 years, I was obviously very happy to finally find a partner that can match my intensity and my dedication. This has been my biggest obstacle, not many people have the dedication that it takes to train and prepare for a show.
These next few week are very important as I am stepping up the cardio a bit (adding another 15-30 minutes when I have time) and I am going to try and put more time into my posing. This has been a problem lately as I don't have much time for posing.
Posing is extremely important at this stage of the game as it tends to make you look tighter and gets you harder. I am aiming for at least 4-5 nights a week for about 30 minutes. This weekend I will going to buy some new posing trunks and to get my posing oil.
