GetFitOver40 August 2017 Update Video - Future Plans for 2017

In this Update Video for August 2017 I talk about my future plans for this year and leading into next year specifically if there are any shows I plan to compete in? I talk about how this decision is one I make considering my family and other activities we have planned this summer and fall which does greatly affect how I decide what shows I plan to go attend. I also talk about my plans moving forward with what I hope to achieve body composition wise since again I may have to put some more size on to be competitive in future shows. At least size in the right areas...

Road to the 2017 Canadian Nationals - Contest Day

In this my Contest Day video from my Road to the 2017 Canadian Nationals where I share some of my thoughts before the show. I also have included some pre-judging video that my wife took for me (not bad quality at all) and then follow this up with my thoughts about the show results.

WARNING: I do go into some politics and talk about my views on the direction of Men's Physique and my concerns about how competitors have been getting bigger and bigger to the point where I feel overall muscularity is getting away from what the original Men's Physique category was intended to represent.

Road to Canadian Nationals - 1 Day Out

Only 1 more day to go, this is when it gets really exciting as all the fun stuff starts to happen now. Today I traveled to the host hotel the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford where I will be staying at for my duration at this years Canadian Nationals. Friday for me is more of a get organized day but there are a few things I had to do like pick my team BCABBA jacket and get a group photo with the team. I also had to get signed in during the athletes meeting so I am fully registered to compete on Saturday. Somewhere in there I also had to fit in my first coat of spray tan.

Oh an I also got to have a pretty damn good dinner at Red Robin this time around, a nice juicy lettuce wrapped beef burger with bacon and cheese and a side of yam fries :)

Road to Canadian Nationals - Bod Pod and FIT3D Testing

There is a lot of info in the video so make sure to watch it for all the details. The short version is I tested at 7.6% using the Bod Pod which was a bit higher than I was expecting since I feel as lean if not leaner then I have been in past competitions. At the end of the day the Bod Pod is just a machine that spits out a number you can use to help you track your progress but it does not indicate what you look like in real life or how you present yourself on stage. That is what is ultimately the most important!

Comparing last year's FIT3D to this year's FIT3D results at 3 days out from the Canadian Nationals, it kind of looks like I have brought up my upper body just a bit and may be heading into this year's Nationals a little bit leaner and more conditioned. Again checkout the video for more info and a look at my FIT3D Animated Avatar that I had done at the Tsawwassen Springs Health Club.
