• It is also important to not let yourself go in terms of your condition. One quick way to lose focus and suffer from the blues is put on too much body fat too soon. My favourite old adage "look good, feel good, am good" rings true here. I'm not talking about staying ripped, I am merely suggesting that not drifting over 10-12% body fat would be a great way to still stay in good shape whilst trying to add quality lean muscle mass to your physique. And then when you see the changes to your frame this in turn will spur you on to maintaining some focus. And, you will be surprised at how good you will look with some extra muscle whilst still being relatively lean, most people prefer this look, so expect lots of positive feedback...some people may even accuse you of using performance enhancing substances!!

My goal now is too get ready for the ANB's new contest in WA scheduled for September 29. This should be another great event for the ANB and I already know many people that are very keen to both watch and spectate this show.
Below is a recent backyard photo with my 3 first place trophies from the May/June State contests as well as my second place statue from the awesome ANB Asia Pacific International. The photos were taken two weeks after my last show with no tan, all my water IN and an extra 2kg of bodyweight!

When we arrived at The Watermark we were first reunited with ANB National President Robert Powell who always gives us a warm welcoming reception. Robert has done so well with the ANB Federation in creating such a great organization for natural athletes both in terms of a level playing field and looking after the competitor's interests. His shows are always so well received and the atmosphere is one of excitement, energy and entertainment every single time.
Robert and I were chatting for some time about how things were progressing and in particular about the great news of the ANB kicking off in WA later this year with a show scheduled for September 29th. We also were very mindful of the commitment and effort that both Maria McCarter and David Salamon have put into this event so as to get it up and running.
