Let’s call a spade a spade. After competing in my first Men’s Physique Show with the NPC, I can honestly say that this division is NO JOKE. This was not only my first Men’s Physique show, but it turned out to be the largest yet, with close to 20 total competitors. I’m going to be completely honest when I tell you that I got blown out of the water, making me pull back and evaluate things as far as my physique and taking a different approach. These guys looked awesome, plain and simple. I thought I was lean, but apparently not lean enough…these guys had it on another level! Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed competing in the new division and think it’s great for guys that don’t want to be a bodybuilder, yet are too big and aren’t really the 170 lb fitness model type. I was humbled by the experience and am glad to compete with some great guys in the division that have awesome physiques, such as Stanley Adolf, Craig Capurso, Chris Villa and Dean Michael. I think I just covered the guys that placed top 5 in the show and they definitely deserved it and wanted to give them a shout.

With that said, the point I want to make here is that all of us need to step back at times and evaluate ourselves. Decide what it is we want, what CHANGES need to be made and then execute. Too often we get caught up in doing the same thing over and over again, but if we do that NOTHING will ever change. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting change is insanity. That’s all there is to it. Now sit down, think about your goals, wants and dreams…and go out there and get it. Don’t wait on the world to change you because it won’t. Go out and CREATE your world…your dream…your life, because you only get one chance. No looking back!
