β€œThe true enemy lies within”
Possibly one of my favourite quotes. I think nowadays more then ever, people are trying to β€˜fit in’ or conform to whatever social normality that they have in their mind to appear β€˜cool’ or be accepted. It’s not about pleasing others in sacrifice of your own happiness, being yourself is the best way to live your life. At the end of the day, who cares which people fit in where? Do you take your money and fame and social status to the grave? Your life can be taken at any moment but what you believe in will never be taken. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

Little bit self-conscious about posting this. With some persuasion from @jamiecanning_ I finally brought myself to post πŸ˜‚ this pic was taken 2 days before the IFBB Australasia Championship @ifbbaustralia_official @ifbb_official β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
This conditioning took a lot out of me mentally and physically, to the point where backstage I felt dizzy and my vision was blurry πŸ‘€ nevertheless, it’s amazing to see what your body is capable of if you push its limits πŸ™πŸΌ excited to bring an even better package to the Arnold Classic’s next year, made some good changes over this bulk where @ifbbjudgedre recommended. I’m ready to blow my last physique out of the water 🀜🏽😈

It’s been a fair while since I’ve hit a quarter turn pose. Thought I’d start my practicing for next year’s season of competing early, and refine my routine. Good luck to all the @ifbb_official @ifbbaustralia_official athletes competing down at the Leagues Club tomorrow at Nationals πŸ™πŸΌ Leagues Club brings me back memories of the Australasian days πŸ˜… @ifbbjudgedre

Onto the next πŸ‘‹πŸ½ #graduation

Nothing happens overnight. It has taken me the best part of 2 years to achieve what I have so far, and that’s what’s exciting to me. 2 years, in the bigger picture, is a minuscule amount of time compared to athletes that have been consistently working and dedicated their lives for a decade. I can’t wait to nail the remaining months of my bulk, and get into the leanest condition I’ve ever been.

My goal: Bring my best ever conditioning next show, with an extra 5kg stage weight from the Australasian championships. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
This is a marathon, not a sprint, more so mentally then anything else, for what you believe and dedicate yourself to your body will follow. It’s all mindset. 🧠 β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
