Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - Contest Photos

I got my Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships Contest photos from Dave Ford Photography so I thought I would share some of them with you in a 4K YouTube Video... Enjoy!


Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - Mens Physique Awards

Here is the final chapter in my last Men's Physique Fitness Contest where I competed at the Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships in both Men's Physique Masters and Men's Physique Open "D" Division which is the tall class. As I have already mentioned in previous posts, I placed 1st in my age category which is Masters 40+. I am 47 after all so I have earned this right :) I also qualified at my last Victoria Cup Competition to enter in the Open division with the younger folk and low and behold I got a second place finish this time around and I have to say that all the competitor in both Masters and Open where in great shape and made it that much more special placing where I did since it was no cake walk.

All of this basically means I am moving onward to the Canadian National competition held on August 13 2016 in New Westminster BC. That's not a long time to get ready but since I am kind of already somewhat ready and will be experiencing a rebound effect from my recent cut, I hope to put on a couple more pounds for my next show, this is going to take some serious hard work but I may never get another opportunity like this again so I will rise to the challenge and prevail :)


Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - Mens Physique Prejudging

I think most everyone now knows where I placed in the Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - Men's Physique Masters and Open classes. Well now you can watch the competition prejudging video and decide for yourself how you think I did. Everyone on stage looked awesome out there so in honor to all the competitors and their hard work, I decided to include all of the show footage my wife took so if they happen to stumble on this video, they will get to see themselves in action even if only for some of it.

I will follow-up this video very shortly with the Awards portion for Men's Physique Masters and Open Divisions so make sure to check back.


Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - Competition Day

I will have full Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships Contest video for everyone coming very soon but for now I did take some Competition Day footage using my iPhone in "Video Log" style and I kind of take you through the day with me including some pre-contest thoughts, back stage video, what I snacked on to carb up, lunch at the Steamworks Pub, a little GSP (Georges St Pierre) and my after competiton thoughts. Enjoy the video and stay posted for my Prejudging and Awards contest video shot in pretty decent quality by my wife Nicole using my Sony RX100 Mark 4 camera.


Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships - So How did I do?

First off, I have some more videos form the Vancouver Pro Am - BC Championships to share with you guys from the actual day of competition. I will have some iPhone Vlogging style video with some back stage stuff and my wife Nicole took some higher quality video of the show from an audience perspective so there will also be that to share with everyone. For now I have some lower quality photos I grabbed off of the the Muscle Insider website that will give you an idea of how I looked up on stage but I will be posting much higher quality photos taken by David Ford Photography that I paid for at the show, I just need to wait a couple of days before I get those ones.

So how did I do? Well Great! I got first in my age category (Men's Physique Masters 40+) and I also placed 2nd in Men's Physique Open which is an "open class" for all ages which means I am competing with guys that could literally be my own kids ;) The Men's Physique Open Class is extremely competitive since there are a lot more younger guys competing then guys in there 40's. That said, all the competition in both Masters and Open was very well represented and everyone out there deserved to be on that stage along side one another...

What does this all mean for me moving forward? I am now qualified to compete at the Canadian National level and represent the Province of BC in both Men's Physique Masters and Open. The next Canadian National competition will be held on August 13 2016 in New Westminster BC only 5 weeks from now so I have my work cut out for me as I need to bring my game up a notch as this is next level stuff we're talking about here! So wish me luck, this adventure just got a little more interesting!
