Thread: 5 Weeks Out from Masters Nationals

    Thumbs up

    You look great and ripped man.

    However, I think you can use more work on your abs especially the lower ones, and try to put more efforts on your inner lower chest.

    I wish all the best for you in your coming show.

    1. You know from personal experience how crazy and hectic the pump up area can be at big shows. Be sure to stay relaxed and take your time pumping up back stage. Far better to ease into it and be certain to be 95% pumped in the lineup, then rush and end up being stressed and off.

    2. STAY FLEXED from the second you turn and face the judges.
    The ONLY time you can relax a bit is when they are judging a different 5 guys in the middle.
    I saw a star, reached for it...and MISSED

    Super advice for any competing athlete. The "relaxed" position is really a tensed one. Have to be at your best all the time on stage. Assume you are always being judged.

    At this show, pump up area is small and no dumbbells are allowed. Have to bring a heavy towel or some other pump up apparatus. Very true about relaxing and easing into it.

    Thanks, Howard.
