Road to the Canadian Nationals - Peak Week - 3 Days Out - FIT3D

Only 3 more days to go till I hit the stage in New Westminster BC for the CBBF 2016 Canadian Nationals competing in Men's Physique Masters and Open divisions. It's getting super real and I am so excited for this event to take place!

Today was my last workout day so I made plans with a neighbour and good friend of mine (Mike Green) to meet him at his place of work (Tsawwassen Springs Fitness) where we had planned to do a workout together and also for me to try out some of their new high tech body analyses Health and Fitness gadgetry. I was mostly interested in the FIT3D body scanner since it maps out a three dimensional image in Avatar form with all of your important body measurements to be analysed and monitored over time. 

Tsawwassen Springs Fitness also has a second body analysis device for measuring your body composition but my research on this one came back leaving me to wonder how accurate it was going to be in terms of reading my body fat and as I expected it wasn't any where even close to being accurate for me coming in at 13%. Sorry I don't think so! Not after what I've been through!

Anyway, I had a great shoulders, arms and abs workout at Tsawwassen Springs Fitness and their FIT3D was really cool. I was very surprised at how quick the FIT3D system scanned me and then seeing my 3D mapped image in an email I received about 15 minutes later. Yup that's me below :)

Today was also my first carb-up day, not a big one, but at least I got to have some oatmeal, rice and sweet potatoes. Tomorrow I will be adding even more carbs so I will have to get some sort of activity in to offset all the extra carb food calories I am now eating. In only two more days (Friday), I will be heading to the CBBF 2016 Canadian Nationals to get register and check into my hotel. This is going to be fun!

Road to the Canadian Nationals - Peak Week - 5 Days Out Text

We are now well in to Peak Week, only 5 more days to go till I get my spotlight on the stage for representing BC in Men's Physique Masters and Open classes at the CBBF Canadian Nationals. I sure hope I will be ready? I have done everything I believe I need to do to be prepared and I feel I'm on track with only just a little bit more weight/fat to drop over these last few days.

Energy today (Monday) was actually pretty good during my workout but I did find it hard to get my heart rate up where I am use to it being and so my calorie count for today's near 2 hour workout was a bit lower than usual. Nothing a couple of fast paced walks couldn't fix :)

I also wanted to mention that on Wednesday I will be visiting my friend Mike Green who works at Tsawwassen Springs Fitness where they have this super cool body mapping device called the FIT 3D which captures a full 360 degree body scan in 40 seconds using a non-invasive infrared light depth camera. The gym at Tsawwassen Springs Fitness also has a second body composition device I will be getting tested with, using the two of these devices I should be able to get a really good indication of where I am at just days before I step on stage! I should have a video highlighting this by Thursday so stay posted...
