Craig's Blog #16!...

As they say in the classics "All good things must come to an end!"...well my 4 week rebound of numerous cheats and extra carbs is now in the process of being tidied up. I am now quite 'clean' throughout the week with the cheat meal only on the Friday night. My protein is still locked in at around 350g per day, fibrous/complex carbohydrates somewhere around 150-200g per day depending upon that day's activity level and good, essential fats are around 60-80g per day. Cardiovascular exercise is daily for anywhere between 20-60 minutes with a slightly higher intensity than before. I will continue to incorporate my Peak Nine (21 minute) interval cardio 3 times per week.

For weeks I have had to stay away from the staff room and miss out on these nibbles. But now the fact that I can join in and partake if I feel that way inclined is extremely satisfying indeed! I was talking to another bodybuilding mate of mine, Torrie, recently and he said that you don't really appreciate a lot of things in life unless you have experienced the sheer ongoing deprivation that a pre-contest diet can bring about.

Craig's Blog #14!...

Somebody said to me after the show..."What now Craig? You gonna take next year off??" My answer was a definite NO as I really enjoy competing and personally find that I at my best when I am preparing for a physique contest, both physically and emotionally. That very focused mindset and intrinsic motivation seems to filter into all other aspects of my life so that everything I do I do well and efficiently. I really love that feeling of being in good shape in the off season whilst trying to build more muscle and then running in again for the next showdown in whatever State that might be in. As I always like to say..."Look good, feel good, am good!" and "If you want something done, ask a busy person!"
