Have You Competed Before?
Competing in a physique competition is extremely rewarding when we get the outcome we’re striving for, disheartening when we don’t. After 18 years of actively competing I know this probably better than most. For the novice who has not competed before preparing for competition will be both a difficult, and rewarding process for you. It will teach you things about yourself you didn’t know, and instill things that will make you better in all aspects of your life.
Some of you may have competed before, and prepped yourself for competitions. I admire all of you brave enough to embark on such a large endeavor by yourself. What an awesome way to learn how your body responds to different types of nutrition. Some of you might have hired a prep coach. There are so many ways to learn and prepare for a competition. I have my own unique way of preparing my competitors, as you would expect most coaches do. I’m a firm believer in keeping things simple, using an old-school approach usually gets the most consistent results.
The Bread-and-butter of it really comes down to diet, supplements, and training regimen written specifically for your current situation. It just doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that. I start preparing competitors, both novice, and experienced twelve to sixteen weeks from competition depending on present conditioning, muscularity, and improvements needed to be competitive in whatever class chosen. As I mentioned above being a competitor I embrace challenge, and love to win. Learning a new competitor, finding the best foods, and training Reg is, and can be very challenging, and rewarding. If you’re looking for a hands-on, meticulously focused, detail oriented coach, well you found me.
If there’s anything I’ve learned from being a coach, and competitor it’s never stop searching, researching and applying information both new and old. Make sure that you leave no stone unturned.
