My preparation for The Arnold Classic!
I have been training really hard & stepped it up with weights in the last few weeks. I have a great training partner at the moment, Lance Preddy, who has a powerlifting background - I've been choosing what to do for our leg workouts & he's choosing the exercises for upper body days. Chest/tricep & back/biceps last week I found intense, trained them on Thursday & Friday & today (Wednesday) the soreness has gone - just in time for another upper body thrashing of some kind today!
Have got a 12 Week Challenge starting for about 15 clients on the 24th of Jan, am going to be running 5 or 6 group training sessions from then (had been running 3) & am training at 3 or 4 girls for their first show in Christchurch on April 30th - the Nabba/WFF Christchurch Grand Prix.
Writting for the Gofigure website is also keeping me busy & have started doing a bit more online training for people around New Zealand. So all in all - everything is going really well & I'd say it's going to be a jammed packed few months ahead - bring it on!

There are people in life who are incredibly supportive of others regardless of their own situation or what may be going on in their lives, & there are also people who try and knock your down, belittle what you believe in, or what you're trying to do. I am learning more and more as time goes on to spend my time with/talking to people who will support & respect me & what I want to achieve in life & I will do the same back for them. The people who can only find negative things to say are most likely unhappy with their own situation, & while it can be easier said than done.. the negative/challenging things don't effect me as much as they have at times in the past, I know what I want & I'm going after it :)
