Never satisfied. In all honesty, it will probably take several more years before I even come close to where I want to be. But I’m okay with that. Because this is my lifestyle and not a 6-week summer body rush. I’ll never be “finished”.
I’m seriously considering making the switch from NPC to WBFF. I feel that competing in that organization would better suit my body type! Of course, that means I probably won’t compete until next year, when will give me plenty of time to make improvements. I don’t want to half-ass a prep just for the “experience”. I want to do it right!
A year ago I wouldn’t even be able to do SLDLs or RDLs with light dumbbells without it KILLING my lower back. I had to stop doing conventional heavy deadlifts altogether because it hurt too much. Now I can bust out 15 reps with 135 and it’s allllll glutes and hams babyyyyy. This is why mobility, body work, and proper form is so important!!! Unlock your body’s full potential!

Squatting underhand wide-grip cable rows: the name is a mouthful, but this exercise is awesome for me. The angle and body position allows me to really target my lower traps, which is a lagging area of mine. You can’t really use that much momentum on these, so it’s hard to cheat!
It’s very humbling yet very necessary to work with lighter weights. Something I didn’t really realize until a few months ago is that I have severely winged scapulae. I’ve managed to improve it a little, but I have a long way to go before my shoulder blades can lay flat against my ribs the way they should. I have to focus really hard on keeping my shoulders externally rotated during most exercises so I don’t worsen my muscle imbalances. This requires me to keep the weight pretty light. Yet another reason why it’s good to have a trainer or coach to assess your weaknesses and make you do what is necessary to improve them!
