"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours."
-Henry David Thoreau
The results are in!!!!! I placed third in the Ron Love Hall of Fame Classic. I weighed in at 160lbs which landed me in the middleweight division with 4 other competitors. I was happy with my overall performance leading up to the competition, competition day, and the results the judges handed out. As I’ve stated in previous blogs my only goal in life is to be a better man tomorrow than I am today. I was able to come in a bit leaner and bigger than I had in my first completion in March.
The 2 gentlemen who placed above me at the Ron Love classic deserved to win 1st and 2nd place because they were leaner and more conditioned than I was. I realized I may have been focusing too much on water depletion methods and not enough on fat depletion. As I have learned over the past couple of weeks, being “dry” on competition day means little if your muscles are cover up by fat. These 2 gentlemen understood this and it aided them on securing the top two spots. I will use this knowledge to aid me in my future completions.
My greatest area of improvement has been in my workouts. My stamina, strength, focus, and speed has all improved over the past 8 weeks. I feel better throughout the day than I have ever felt. I have to attribute this to a more well balanced diet, adequate rest, PTF, and Gamma O. The supplements I have been using from Gamma Labs have done wonders for me in the gym and in my personal life. I will continue to use PTF and Gamma O to aid me in securing the #1 spot come October 6. Thanks Gamma Labs!
I plan on competing in the Natural Ohio show on October 6, 2012 in Toledo Ohio. I will make use of the knowledge I have gained about myself and professional body building over the next 16 weeks to present a better me (mentally and physically) October 6, 2012.
Stay tuned for next week’s installment of the countdown to the Natural Ohio. Brought to you by Larry Miller. “See it up before you see it up” Conceive, Believe, Achieve!!!!!!!
