I am currently preparing for the NPC Team Universe competition held in NYC this coming September. For those of you not familiar with Team Universe, it is the most prestigious drug tested competition in the country each year. The winner of each weight class gets the honor of representing the USA at the World Amateur Championships. In 2007, I just missed making the USA team by placing third (I was defeated by both the 2006 and 2005 winners). I am determined to win my weight class (lightweight) in 2008.
I have posted a couple of progress pics I just took 3-4 days ago. I am 165 lbs in these two pictures. This is the "fattest" that I allow myself to get in the "off season". I am at 165 lbs currently. I compete at about 150 lbs. Not to bad for a skinny malnourished vegan........LOL.
It's funny that I'm starting my training blog on a day off from training. Today was a straight cardio day. I rode the upright bike for one hour this morning. I will be training back and calves tomorrow.
I will be using my blog to answer any questions that you may have. Therefore, feel free to fire away with questions.
Thank you for your support in my quest to win Team U. God Bless & Peace.
