Motivation for Physique Competitor's

September is here. And with a glimpse of fall weather, crisp fresh air and stimulating outdoor workouts comes the other side of fitness. Many figure and bodybuilding competitor's are in the last stages of dieting preparation. I am so proud of all my friends who are working so hard to rock the stage! I look forward to Oct. 10th Natural Bodybuilding & Figure show in Highpoint Nc, as well as Oct. 17th NPC show in Charlotte, NC (Jay Cutler is the guest poser:) If you haven't been to a show, come check one out!
Below is a poem inspired by the hard work it takes to compete....
"Figure Athlete"

A tidal wave of water washes through the deeply etched abs days
Before the event
Not a carb in sight nor an ounce of fat left behind
The striated arms extend above the carefully tousled hair
Posed just right to place the
Peaked biceps in full view
The rounded curves sit solid on full, healthy hamstrings
Vascularity curses through the tight
Which draw the eye down the body in appreciative
The color of the skin looks like caramel syrup yet the only thing sweet in the
Mouth is the taste of chocolate protein powder feeding these
The crowd cheers in awe, the judges raise an eyebrow as the figurine
Makes the quarter turns
The light reflects off the bronzed beauty as she holds her mandatory pose
Months, weeks, days, of prep
Hours of sweat
Hundreds of meals
All in the name of competing
She waves to the applause, flashes one last smile, the feeling is
She exits the stage and exhales the last bit of adrenaline
She earns the title
“Figure Athlete”
