Shout out to @katebulavina2018 competing tomorrow for the first time in 18 months.

Ekaterina is great to work with. She was as compliant as one could ever ask for last comp prep, compliant post comp, reversed well, we got her calories up nice and high, without gaining too much unwanted bodyfat, hit a heap of personal best lifts throughout the offseason and now we are here.

One day out from the state titles, three weeks out from nationals. More muscle through the glutes and thighs than last season and leaner already.

I look forward to seeing you up on stage tomorrow!

I'm excited. ^_^

(Much easier to read all this on facebook btw... rather than finding the rest in the comments) --== Story Time With Iron ==-- "IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE THE SUCCESSS YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF, WHILST LIVING A WELL ROUNDED, BALANCED LIFESTYLE!" What a load of shit... If the level of success you have always dreamed of, is to only look better than 50% of a morbidly obese population, to be able to pay off your house in 25 years time, to work 9-5, growing someone else's business, then sure, I'm sure you can achieve all that with a well balanced lifestyle.

Now, I'm not trying to talk down everyone who lives the above lifestyle. There is nothing wrong with the above. I'm just trying to make a point. You can't dream about achieving amazing things, live in an average way and then expect amazing things to happen.

Amazing things do not just happen, people make them happen. And they usually only make them happen by putting in a shit load of time and effort into a very specific goal, for a very extended period!

With the Olympia weekend now upon us, let's look at some of the most improved athletes over the last few years, who are currently striving for greatness in the physique world and see if they have been aiming for balance in their lives also.
I would say that some of the most improved athletes over the last few years, have actually been striving for IMBALANCE, not balance, in their lives, in an attempt to be the best bodybuilders that they can possibly be.

In my opinion, I see the greatest level of improvement in alot of the athletes who travel over to Kuwait, to live and train with the Camel Crew at Oxygen Gym. Despite the hysteria around the 'anabolic chicken' over there in Kuwait and the secret drug protocols that they must have devised, which are transforming athletes by the dozen, it's not actually about that. The level of improvement in these athletes does not come from magical anabolics or revolutionary training techniques, it comes from putting these athletes in a box and forcing them to focus solely on their eating, training and sleeping. No distractions. *CONTINUED IN COMMENTS*

When you spot a client with no pants on, but they don't notice, because your legs are so small anyway... @krista_mindtomuscle 52.5kg x 6 for 3 sets @ 47kg bodyweight. Not bad for a girl.

Throwback Thursday.

2011 to 2012

108kg to 86kg

12 month weight loss phase with a 6 week reverse in the middle.

No cardio, no stimulants, just weight training and eating at a calorie deficit.

It took a whole year, but the progress was steady the whole way through.

Sometimes slow and steady does win the race. ^_^

Wayback Wednesday.

2013, November, INBA Natural Olympia, San Diego, California, USA.

I had been urinating out of my anus for the 24 hours prior and felt like death.

I had a nap before pre judging and ended up sleeping through it.

I managed to talk the officials into letting me do my routine at the night show, even tho I was not eligible to be judged in the actual competition.

It was definitely the leanest I had ever managed to get and I looked awesome the day prior to getting gastro, so I was proud of that, even if I did look like a shriveled sultana on stage! ^_^

--== Training & Nutrition Update ==-- Weighing in under 97kg for the first time all year.

A few weeks ago, I dropped my last meal of the day, to save time after work in the evenings, so I get get to bed earlier and get some more sleeps.

I now get home and basically go straight to bed, no cooking, cleaning, watching TV, which means I get to spend 6hrs (11pm-5am) in bed, instead of 4hrs.

Still getting used to switching off and going to sleep 2hrs earlier, but I have been feeling slightly better the last couple weeks.

I still need to go to bed and go straight to sleep, as I have been fucking around doing random things still and wasting time, but I shall improve.

Also, I was training whole body sessions, for a 5 week period and it was so bad on my little knees and elbows. I could hardly bend my legs to do anything, by the end of it.

I switched back to a Push/Pull/Legs split and over the last 2 weeks my knees and elbows are slowly coming back to normal.

I am too old and skinny for whole body sessions, 5 times/week.

Train hard. =] #aaroncurtis #ironcurtis #twoguysonesnap #toobig #imskinny #imskny #nolegs #soskinnyithurts #masstheticarmy #massthetics #naturalbodybuilding #bodybuilding #natty4lyf #personaltraining #onlinetraining #onlinept #nutrition #zujinutrition #strongliftwear #slw #suppsrus #teamorange

I assumed these sessions were training/nutrition related, based of the fact I am just a shadow of my former physical self these days.

When I inquired about what these sessions would be about, I was surprised to hear it was about business growth.

I replied that I was pretty flat out business wise these days, but if someone wants to sit down and have a chat with me, then I was happy to chat.

The coach himself then responded:

Coach: "That's great, congrats, but how long can you maintain that?" The question threw me a little... Iron: "Umm... well, it's been 10 years so far? The four years before that were slow, as I was only 20 years old and just starting out as a personal trainer for the first time, but after I built up a client base, it's been pretty steady." I never got a reply back after that.

Perhaps I should offer to sit down with him and have a chat, maybe I could give him some tips, on sustaining a successful business? =P
