Really it's simple... I just never gave up.. I continued to believe in myself.. I continued to tell myself this will all pay off... The fact I'm still not where I want to be is enough motivation to keep me going day in and day out. Thank you to all that have believed in me! It certainly hasn't been an easy road but it has been the most rewarding thing I've EVER done! #transformationtuesday #teammitch #iwontbeoutworked #teamfak #mitchmadness #bodybuilding #middleweight #gym #fitness #gymmotivation #fitnessmotivation #bodybuildingmotivation #workharderthenme #fuckaverage #averageisunacceptable #eatsleeptrain #manonamission #comingfor2017 #dreamchasing2017 #NoPainNoGain #npcindiana

As always here are my weekly update photos sent to coach @fakhrimubarak_ceo_ifbbpro this AM. Sitting at just 9 days out at 227.8, just about 20lbs over stage weight. Feeling pretty good with where I stand, but still plenty of work to be done!

I can't believe I'm posting this, but hey... I'm damn proud of this work.
9 weeks down with my coach @fakhrimubarak_ceo_ifbbpro and 9 more to my first show. I've been working my ass off for this and can't wait to bring it on stage. Let's kill it!! 💪🏻

Weakened fun! Getting some reps in here with @sudamats and @richiiboi24 . #npcbodybuilding #teamshooffz #bantam #teamfak

If you're feeling lost or unmotivated, set some lofty AF goals and chase them till you drop. I promise you that if you do, you'll find joy. Chasing those dreams won't be easy, and there's no doubt you'll face failure. But the chase itself, the hustle, is so incredibly rewarding. IT JUST FEELS GOOD. Believe me! You won't ever meet a woman (or man) who's busting her ass for a dream and feels sad or sorry for herself at the same time. 😘💕🙏🏻

Barbell #squats failure set. A damn breakthrough that was overdue for a long time. It takes time to get in the right mindset to do that shit. #legday #bulking #teamfak #summer2017 #breakthrough #npc #classicphysique #приседания

Here is a little clip from posing this morning 😁 I know I can smooth this out more. Being on stage is so different than anywhere else. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when your up there and all the possibilities that run throu your head. It's a challenge for most of us and I feel that is what we get a rush out of. Practice yes makes perfect but still not the same as experiences #posing #posingpractice #nothinglikebeingonstage #excited #readyornot #confidence #determined #lovethissport #bodybuildinglifestyle #contestprep #npcfigure #npc #teamfak

8 days out! Peak week starts tomorrow and I'm feeling so good. These last 5 weeks have flown and I feel full and strong. Finishing up my season and looking forward to the next!

Thank you @inked_muscle_mermaid for a kick ass back workout and pushing me to lift 275 of deadlifts. #backday #deadlifts #girlwholift #mevsme #teamfak #eyeontheprize #focused

Trained chest today in an overly packed environment... Made the best of it and killed it.. Fully depleted but still looking pretty crazy.. Going to enjoy carbing up these next 4 days! #themadnessiscoming #teammitch #iwontbeoutworked #teamfak #mitchmadness #bodybuilding #middleweight #gym #fitness #gymmotivation #fitnessmotivation #bodybuildingmotivation #workharderthenme #fuckaverage #averageisunacceptable #eatsleeptrain #manonamission #comingfor2017 #dreamchasing2017 #NoPainNoGain #npcindiana

"GREAT THINGS NEVER CAME FROM COMFORT ZONES.".

The "Back Pose" photo on the right (I really wish I had my hair up here!) was one week out from my first competition, in October 2016, where I won both of my classes and the Novice Overall at the New England's. The photo on the left is 12 weeks out from this same show!! All of us athletes know that the lighting (and Iphone cameras) do not do us any justice because it makes us look "less tight." But you all get the point! I'm comparing these photos to motivate myself as I get closer to show day. I'm so happy with the improvements I've been able to make so far in almost 9 months. Those who know me well KNOW that I do not skip a day of training, and if I do, I torture myself the next day and double it up!! LOL. I have also been eating very CLEAN all year! (Maybe a cheat once per week bahaha) Anyways, you better believe I will beat my last package and continue to make improvements along with the help of my coach @fakhrimubarak_ceo_ifbbpro 💪🏼🙌🏽.

The reason for the quote above is because it reminded me of show day. I was winning my classes and, crazy, but I DID NOT WANT TO WIN THE (Open bikini) OVERALL! I felt bad winning the other three and thought to myself, "ok, please no more! These are enough!😅" I wanted to see someone else win. Growing up, at one point in my life, I did not have it all and became accustomed to that. Now is that I'm starting to come to understand that "hey, perhaps it is my moment and I will take it all home" - That it's OK to receive! All of us athletes work so hard together to get to that stage so, yes, we all deserve the trophies! But, they do not define us nor our worth! And if we do receive one, two, three, or four, it's because it was OUR MOMENT ❤️ so that's my current mindset as we get closer to the stage. Going in with a positive mindset 100% of the way, and if it all works out🙏🏼, perhaps it will be my moment once again. .

My motivation comes from my mental strength. To follow a plan 💯 down to the letter takes every ounce of will power I can draw from the depths of my soul.
I've come into every show (other than my first, I had no idea what I needed to look like) in this type of conditioning. It's not a one time thing or chance. If I'm in, I'm all in. I'd never allow myself to go on stage if I had small rolls of skin on my lower back while hitting my back pose. I'd feel like a failure if I did.
Real talk: for some of you new NPC competitors, a word of advice. You should be on stage with your spinal erectors fully visible and crisp. If they are not, your plan wasn't right or you had more to give during your prep. You short changed your potential. There's no excuse to show up with a soft lower back. Period. Don't use the excuse that you were holding water in your lower back. If you're dry, you're dry. Reality is you didn't lose enough body fat. 🤔

Steak at the roadhouse tonight. Yesterday was exactly 4 weeks post show. Gained only 7 pounds. And as you can see, still rather vascular 🤔 can we say it's all about nutrition.... #teamfak #teambarkes #barkesfitness #veins #npc #npcindiana #bodybuilding #npcbodybuilding #ifbbpro #ifbb #npcbikini #npcphysique #npcfigure #godfirst #blessed #blessedtobeablessing #oneroad #bethestorm #indy #indianapolis #gymmealprep

Big congrats to my friend , client , @nxtsportsnutrition_nyc co worker and great dude @j.diezel for bringing home 2 trophies yesterday at his first show. David has that sick work ethic, desire and physique to turn pro. All we do is work hard! @cipidog will be competing at the @ifbbvictormartinez classic next weekend. Let's go #teamastoria #teamfak #nxtsportsnutrition! #mensphysique #npc #ifbb #bodybuilding #hardwork #letsgetit

What are you willing to do to get there? What sacrifices need to be made? Who will stick around to support you? When life gets messy, who will help you clean it all up? How far are you willing to go, and for how long are you willing to work for it? Are you the type to give up when things don't go as planned? .
.

I'm willing to do it all until I get it 🙌🏽🤘🏼Either you're with me or you're not. Win or lose, I'm still working. .
