Righteous Muscle

Build Your Righteous Muscle

Every year the Pro American and the Northeast Classic are the first to usher in the new season for the World Natural Bodybuilding Federation and its amateur league, the International Natural Bodybuilding Federation. 

Year after year on the stage of the infamous Marlboro Middle School competitors from across the country go head to head in the ultimate showdown of ambition, dedication, and often decades of hard work.  As the sports of natural bodybuilding, fitness and figure grow in popularity, so too does the level of competition- and 2010 was no exception.

As for myself, a late decision to compete combined with a half-hearted diet left me feeling disappointed- at best.  After three weeks of madness in order to step on stage without utter embarrassment, including 40 minute, double-session cardio workouts on less than 50 grams of carbohydrates daily, I came in flat and depleted, never mind the voluntary disintegration of the muscle I worked so hard in the off-season to refine.

A mistake I vow never to make again.

Although, in retrospect, making mistakes is something that every amateur does and will continue to do in this great sport.  For some of the hardest learned lessons- like true dedication-whether it’s to dieting, training, or your “natural” integrity, are best absorbed through failures.  As a competitive athlete, it’s not necessarily the taste of victory that has me continuously pushing it to the limit day in and day out.

Lucky for us this is a life-long endeavor, and one thing will always hold true- there’s always room for personal growth and self-improvement.

You never know what 2011 will bring…
