So this happened over the weekend. I joined a local fitness contest. its in conjunction with the Miri City Auto Show 2014. Mr Body Fitness. Took it as an opportunity to test out my philosophy to see if it works well towards what iv imagined it as. I didn’t change my diet routine. Just maintained the clean diet with same amount of Carbs without depleting. Of course, the choice of carbs is important. Only Complex Carbs. Plus the workout is the same only for the last 4 days.
4 days out i was hitting heavy still. Only difference is 2 body parts the same intensity but just as heavy. From 7 exercise or 8 or 12 i reduce to 4 types for each muscle group. From 6 to 7 sets i drop down to 5 sets. from 20 reps or 12 reps i make sure its just 12 reps each. or failure.
So this is Day 1 – Back & Quads / Calves
Day 2 – Chest and Hamstring / Calves
Day 3 – Shoulder and Arms
1 day out i decide to do full body lightweight HIIT. Non-Stop Extended Sets Isolation which ended up with 1hour + before I head over to my sponsor to snap some photos at the Muscle Lab Fitness Center and head home to rest.
Diet wise, the only difference started on the day before the show. I swap my brown rice and Wholemeal Bread with Whole Grain Rice Cake Salt Free to reduce the water intake. Started cutting back on water 16 hours out and completely stop at 12 hours before the stage.
On the day itself, i woke up pretty late. Around 5 hours prior to contest to shove the food into the Oven, took my rice cakes and back to bed. Woke up 4 hrs prior to prep my other food and did some 1k crunch before i lay back in bed. 2 hours before i drove to the location and wait. So i decide this time round, to apply the #DreamTan earlier unlike the previous contest which everyone applies 20 minutes before. Cause I find it very wet and oily if i do so. After researching, i was planning to apply it the night before but didn’t cause i was too tired and no one at home to help me apply. Anyways, I only had one coating on and only realized I would really need 3 or more to get the color really stand out since iv very fair skin base. Thankfully, I decide to paint the face too. it would have just look too weird with the big difference. Once again, Thanks so much to Muscle Lab Fitness Center Miri for sponsoring the Dream Tan. Above here, im using the Dream Tan #1 Gold Brown.
I can’t remember how many times i was called out for comparison but thankfully, there was no cramp due to dehydration. Blessings from the Lord I believe. As I cut water quite early and it was also another blessing that after a few extra round of comparison, i didn’t had that need to consume liquid as my body is not suffering from it. All I can recall is that i was called out for 6 comparison rounds and another extra for the group show so that sums up 7 and 8 posing rounds including the initial one. lol.. anyways, im still waiting for more photos coming in.
Praise God all is well
