Sharing Bodybuilding Comp Lessons!

With the Bodybuilding season in full swing, I’ve found a list I made a couple of years ago which helped so much for future shows that took in all the info from previous first few events in the days leading into & during the shows that saved a lot of time! Here are some lessons from those first few comps…

💪Create a specific folder in your inbox for all the details for your competition, payments made, timings, music, hotel confirmations etc ✉️

💪Make a list of all food and liquids needed for the trip, the day before, during and post comp (planning this helps particularly when competing on a Sunday with shops potentially open later, you need to plan ahead)🍴

💪Take double of EVERYTHING – (e.g side story….honey dripping from a rice cake didn’t create a great look on my trunks that one time! 😂)🍯😳

💪Pack spare bedsheets for the night before after your base tan🛏

💪If you can, go for a walk to the venue the day before….it takes that stress away on show day knowing the best route there

💪Check out Parking before getting to the area….again takes a lot of stress away🚘

💪Everyone will have their own approach in the morning of…some will be buzzing, others nervous, everyone will have a different routine going into it😀

💪Enjoy it!

PS 💪 remember where you parked!!🤔

PPS 💪 Write down your experiences from the that show, to look back, lessons for next time, what went well etc📒

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!
