Progress is what bodybuilding is all about. If you are not continually striving to improve upon your physique...then you are wasting your time in the gym, on crazy diets and so on.
I do feel that the BEST YOU is always yet to come, meaning everytime you get on stage you have worked toward your best....but ask any judge, there will always be room for improvement. For me it is conditioning...a one word fits all kind of comment, but the truth is my best is still yet to come. I have been happy with my physique every time I have competed, and yes compared to OTHERS I have plenty of areas to work on. THE BEST ME IS ALL I CAN BE!
So here are some photos of my years of progression in bodybuilding. I have been in the game since 2003, and have been working very hard on training and diet through the years leading me to today. I am a 100% natural athlete, and have always been. The differences you see are all related to TIME; no magic tricks, pills, powders, lipo whatever! I have learned a lot about my own body through diet and exercise and how it responds and the timeframe I need for certain outcames. My weight in all of theses pictures is about the same! In 2003 i weighed 135-137 on stage in 2010 I weighed 140-142.
