Friday, May 8, 2009, Four Weeks Until My Next Contest

Weight:  155.0 Pounds

In four weeks, I will be a Judge and Guest Poser at the 2009 NGA Carolina Night of Champions in Greensboro, NC and in five weeks, I will be on stage competing in my fifth Pro Show, at the 2009 FAME Master Pro World Championships in Montreal, Canada.  I'm looking forward to both of these events.

My diet and training are going very well and I'm sure I will come in where I want to be both in Greensboro and in Montreal.  I continue to lift heavy, have increased my cardio and stayed clean on my contest diet.  For my diet, I am doing a series of three low carb days followed by a high carb day.  I keep my protein consistent.  I am drinking a little more than a half-gallon of water per day and will up that next week.

With 27 shows under my belt, I pretty well know how my body will respond.  I am about six pounds from my desired contest weight and should have no trouble meeting my goal.

I am holding posing clinics at my home on Sunday's for several novice bodybuilders.  They are having a good time learning from "The Old Pro."

Friday, May 15, Four Weeks Until My Next Pro Show, the 2009 FAME Master Pro World Championships.

Weight: 152.0 Pounds

I have a busy four weeks between now and June 13, when I step onto the stage for my 28th contest and fifth Pro Show in Montreal, Canada. My weight is on target and I am leaning out nicely. I'm thinking about 148 pounds for stage weight, ten pounds heavier than my last show in June 2008. I continue to lift heavy and feel strong in the gym. I am carefully controlling my contest prep diet. I am also practicing my posing.

Meanwhile, I am judging a bodybuilding pro-am contest in Alabama next weekend, judging and guest posing at a show in Greensboro, NC two weeks later and then on to Montreal the following week. Fun stuff.

Sunday, May 24, 2009, Two Weeks Until My Guest Poser Appearance and Three Weeks Until My Next Pro Show

Weight: 150.0 Pounds

I had a great time judging the 2009 SNBF Capital Classic Pro Am Bodybuilding and Figure Championships in Montgomery, Alabama on Saturday.  There were 52 competitors and we awarded three Pro Cards: Open, Figure and Masters.  I competed in this show a few years ago and judged it once before.  I leave for Greensboro, NC a week from Friday to judge and Guest Pose at the 2009 NGA Carolina Night of Champions and then a week later, fly to Montreal for the 2009 FAME Masters Professional World Championships. 

I'm doing well with my diet and am slowly leaning out.  I should be good at around 145-148 pounds for the Guest Posing and competition.  I am still lifting heavy and showing good energy.  And, I'm having a great time.

Saturday, June 6, 2009, Greensboro, NC

I'm in Greensboro, NC to judge and guest pose at the 2009 NGA Carolina Night of The Champions.  I'm looking forward to another stint as a contest judge and I'm looking forward to standing up on stage as a guest poser, to "warm up" for my next pro show, the 2009 FAME Masters World Championships in Montreal next Saturday, June 13th.

I will perform two of my Best Poser Award routines, "16 Tons" and "21 Gun Salute."  I'm especially glad I can do "21 Gun Salute," a military style routine, on June 6th, the 65th anniversary of D-Day in France in World War II.

I have other news.  I have been a personal trainer at the Mountainbrook Branch of the Birmingham YMCA for about 16 months.  Last week I was promoted to Fitness Director at the Greystone Family Branch of the Birmingham YMCA.  I begin the full-time job with benefits and vacation on June 22nd.  I will be responsible for the personal trainers and support staff.  At 66 years-of-age, to be promoted to Fitness Director at a very large facility is Very cool!

My contest prep weight is holding at about 149.0 pounds.  I plan to come in somewhere around 148 next Saturday.  I will go below that a few days before and then "carb up" to where I want to be.  I'm going to be as ready as I can for my fifth pro show and 28th contest overall.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009 - FAME Masters Pro World Championships, Montreal, Canada, June 13 - Results

I achieved one of my two goals for my fifth Pro Show and 28th contest overall. I wanted to step onto the stage about 10 pounds heavier, with the conditioning I had at the same event last year. I came in at 148 pounds, exactly 10 pounds more than last year and I was just as conditioned.

My second goal was to move up one place from the 2008 contest and win the title. As I did last year, I placed Second. I was bested by the same athlete who won the event in 2008. I improved, but so did he. That's what I love about our sport. We must always strive to be in better shape for a show than we were last time. I think the contest was closer this year, but at nearly the same weight as me this time, my competitor was two inches shorter and a little wider. Our conditioning was equal. I believe I out posed him and he outsized me. I have requested the judges scoring sheets for the contest to see how we were scored in the symmetry and mandatory rounds and the posing routines, which made up 40% of the score at this show. I will be posting photos from the contest as soon as I receive them from the show's shooter.

I placed my Second Place Award, a beautiful Sword, on the shelf with my other trophies and am now training for my next contest, the 2009 NPA Nationals and Masters Universe in North Carolina on July 18.

Wednesday, June 24, Seventeen Days Until the 2009 NGA Alabama Natural Open Championships, Birmingham, AL, July 11.

It's a busy week.  I'm in the third day of my new job as Fitness Director for the Greystone Branch of the Birmingham YMCA.  I am responsible for the equipment on the gym floor, the personal trainers and the training assistants staff.  It's an interesting job and I'm having a lot of fun.  I still carry three personal training clients who I train early in the morning or late in the afternoon.

My partner, John Rossman, and I are promoting our first contest, the 2009 NGA Alabama Natural Open Bodybuilding, Figure and Fitness Model Championships, a Pro Qualifier, in Birmingham, Alabama on July 11th.  While most of the work is done, there's still lots of coordination needed.   We are both NGA Pros and we know how a contest should be run.  We are doing our best to present a great competition for the athletes and for the audience.

I am training for my 29th show, the 2009 NPA Nationals and Masters Universe in North Carolina on July 18, where I am going for my fourth Pro Card.  I am still in great shape after my Montreal contest last week so I don't have too much to do to get ready.  Meanwhile, I will drive to Nashville, TN on Friday afternoon to judge the 2009 NGA Music City Night of the Championships show on Saturday. 

As I said, it's a busy week.

Saturday, July 4, 2009, One Week Until the 2009 NGA Alabama Natural Open Bodybuilding, Figure and Fitness Model Championships, Pro Qualifier, Birmingham, Alabama, July 11 and Two Weeks Until My Next Contest, the 2009 NPA Nationals and Masters Universe, Burlington, NC, July 18.

Weight: 148 pounds

I am in the final week of preparation for my first show promoter event, the 2009 NGA Alabama Natural Open Bodybuilding, Figure and Fitness Model Championships, to be held at Hoover High School in Birmingham, Alabama next Saturday.  As of today, I have 33 athletes registered for the show.  We are awarding four Pro Cards at this event: Open Mens and Open Womens Bodybuilding, Open Figure and Masters Overall winners.  This is a National Gym Association (NGA) sanctioned competition.  I'm very excited about how it's all coming together.  Lots of little details.  Lots of fun.

I'm two weeks out from my next contest, the 2009 Natural Physique Association (NPA) Nationals and Masters Universe Championships, a Pro Qualifier.  I am competing in the Open Lightweight Class and the Masters 60+ Class.  I am trying to earn my fourth Pro Card (in four different federations).  After placing Second for the last two years at this event, I'm ready to take the Crown.

Monday, July 20, 2009 - NPA Nationals and NPA Masters Universe - Results

Finally, whew. After placing Second in my last three contests (2008 and 2009 FAME World Championships and 2008 NPA Nationals and Masters Universe), I finished First in the Open Men's Lightweight Class in the 2009 NPA Nationals and First in the Men's Masters 60+ Class in the 2009 Masters Universe and won my fourth Pro Card in Burlington, North Carolina on Saturday. I had a great time competing in the Overall Masters and Overall Open Championships. It was sweet!

My goal this year was to come in 10 pounds heavier than my 138 pounds last year. I weighed in at 148.2 on Saturday morning at check-in, on target. I was in the best shape of my life, with plenty of vascularity and plenty of hard muscle. I feel really good about my contest prep. It all came together and I peaked at just the right time.

I am going to take some time off from competing to work on adding another seven pounds of lean mass. I would like to compete in my next Pro Show at around 155 pounds, my heaviest weight ever on stage.

I am a Pro in four federations: NGA, WNSO (FAME), IDFA (Canada) and now the Natural Physique Association (NPA). I have a number of pro shows to chose from and I will enter at least two next year.

I'm gratified to end my contest year with two First Place wins and being awarded my fourth Pro Card, at 66 years-of-age. Rock and Roll!

Getting My Kicks on Route 66 - Final Post

I started this journal as I prepared for my contests this year, at 66 years-of-age and wanting to Get My Kicks (have fun) while training for comps in my 66th year on "Route 66." And have fun, I did. My goal was to bring a larger body to the stage and recapture the winning ways I had in 2007 after placing 2nd in two contests in 2008 and 2nd in one in 2009. I hit the stage at my final show for this year a week ago 10-pounds heavier than in 2008 and not only won my age class, I also won an Open weight class and my fourth natural Pro Card.

I will now take a year off and start my new goal for 2010, to hit the Natural Pro Stage in the second half of the year at a lean 160 pounds. My weight today is 150.0. I will bring a "Bigga, Badder and Mo Betta" body to the stage in 2010.

Thank you for your interest and support this year and over the past five years that I have been active in our Sport. I appreciate you.

Look for my new journal soon as I train as an All American EFX Sponsored Athlete. It's titled: "Old Navy's Quest to be Bigga, Badder and Mo Betta in 2010"
