My friend Steve from the Gym spent a lot of time over the last few weeks helping me with posing and getting my body conditioned for being on stage holding the poses - it's hard work ya know (a work out in itself.
These are a few fun shots showing how lean I was getting around that time.
My diet was Fish and Aspargus for every meal (6 x per day). For the most part I enjoyed it.
My cardio was 1 hr in the morning (5.30-6.30am), Training was 45-60 mins high reps, 1 body part per day + Abs. Posing about 3 times a week. Cardio 1 hour in the PM approx 4.30pm-5.30pm
At this stage my face is not looking so good, with more or less no fat to fill it out.
Still had a sence of humor at times - this is me doing the a BodyBuilders 'Most Muscular' pose (not something done in figure)
Good and lean back - I'll ad some depth and width for 2010
Gotta give you an ab shot - but note the vains under my arms
Vascular.... still gotta work on bringing those caps out more!
*By the way, today is soooo the turning point with my legs, the pain is subsiding and I was even able to do 20mins light cardio on the cross trainer (level 10) after my shoulder workout, that makes me so happy! YAY.
Oh yeah - MATT - thank you for your comments, I'm blown away by your kindness and I'm touched by everything you say! Hugs back to you buddy!
