“Trusting The Process” Mid-Prep for a competition…

It’s a phrase I’ve seen a lot of recently in the years I’ve been competing, one which holds much meaning.

To me, it signifies a point where the results of your work are starting to pay off, it’s a marathon not a sprint and putting the structure in place to see you through to your target.

I’ve found reminding yourself of this tremendously helps with the ‘off-days’ shall we say. Let’s get real, going through any prep for a competition is tough. It won’t all be plain sailing, there may be some self doubt there or simply sessions that don’t quite click as they could. Over the course of many weeks and months those moments in my experience, surface at various times and it’s part of the journey for me to acknowledge those feelings as much as anything.

Trusting the process has played a huge part in keeping the reassurance there that having the right plan and sticking to the path will build week on week and progress will happen.

If it’s been a great week or indifferent, you got this!

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
