Taking It To The Next Level

I'm 41 years old, married with one DS. I've loved fitness my entire life. I've been competing in figure for the last 3 years and love it. I competed in my first national show August 2009. Although I didn't place well, this won't be the last one I do. It only motivated me to build more muscle and get my body leaner. This offseason I'll build a little more muscle with less weight gain and then focus on leaning down to as little bodyfat level as I can. I'm EXCITED for the next year. Fast ...

I accomplished my goal for the offseason. I'm gearing up for the 2010 season. As a matter of fact, 1 week out from my first warmup competition. I'm doing a national qualifier June 12th and that will be my focus right now. Considering some plans later in the year for a national show. We'll see.

I'm a 5'1.5" shorty. hehe I weight 126.5 and I do have some muscle mass from doing triathlon. I know I have some time for a June show. I SOOO want to BE ready... but, I don't want to do to much too soon and burn-out/overtrain. Not having a coach leaves A LOT of wiggle room which is not neccessarily a good thing for me. When I trained for my Ironman races I had a coach that gave me a schedule. You stick to the schedule, do your workouts and you race. Aside from any unforeseen accidents or mishaps, you finish! So for me...I know I'm working hard but... NOT having a "plan" made by someone who is familiar with the science behind building a physique leaves me wondering if I'm doing the right thing. My workouts are cookie cutter from BB.com right now. From the 40+ build muscle category.

When I take my posing classes I hope to learn a bit more about how to change things up to prevent a plateau. I kinda feel like I need it now. I have been practicing some in my mirror. I close my eyes to get the feel and open them to see how I did. I know getting the lats out takes a lot of practice. Wondering if I should get the shoes yet for practice.

Maybe I need to eat more. Of course the "female mentality" is thinking eat less.

Thanks so much for writing me back. emoticon emoticon I really appreciate it.

Hugs~~Jen

Thanks so much for your post on my blog. There really is so much conflicting info out there and the "science" behind it all is sometimes overwhelming.

So, since I have 3 girls who are draining my funds regularly and just coming off of X-mas I'm training myself right now. I do plan on taking some posing classes from a reputable trainer in the later weeks.

Right now I'm lifting heavy on a 3 day split with cardio (30min of intervals)on the 3 opposing days. 1 day off a week. I'm eating 100% clean for 3 weeks and this week I'll add a cheat meal to the plan for some normalcy.

For 3 weeks in I am definately noticing some small changes but my weight is not "falling off" like I have heard some girls say happens for them. emoticon I am eating 6 x per day and having protein at every meal. Carbs in my first 3-4 meals of the day and a little fat with each meal except my casein at night(meal 6).

Any advice is much appreciated. You look FANTASTIC!! Who made your suit btw? I was also thinking of stoning my own suit to save $. When I was a competitive figure skater I would stone my own competition outfits.

Thanks again, Hugs~~Jen
