Great Blog, Ken and great perspective. Looks like you had a good time up there on stage (after they got you guys going)...

I was wondering - shouldn't the judge have asked everyone to adjust their package to the left somewhere during his connect the dots instructions on how to hit a rear double biceps?... LOL

Thanks for sharing, Bud.

Congrads & thanks for sharing. You had some interesting perspective in there. Do you find that your comfort level with competing takes away at all from the excitement since you have so much experience? BTW my favorite part of the blog...

"At the end of the day I drug my 4th place open trophy and my 2nd place masters trophy home with my kids and my wife to my beautiful home driving in my big yellow tractor and I went out with friends that came out to support me instead of friends that want to hang out with me because I am some faux internet celebrity."

No shit... (That's cool and all, but it doesn't give me a lot of faith in the judging if the judges can't compare physiques even when the pose is not hit identically by each competitor... He's removing a certain amount of the "presentation" portion of the judging when the competitor can't present in his / her best light within the confines of the pose itself. I always adjust the package before that pose, so I'd have been all thrown off by those instructions... )

I don't think it is as much a comfort level that takes away from it all as much as the day just sucks with being covered in tan stain, oil, the backstage wreaks of B.O., people are bitchy and it always is 100 fucking degrees as it was this last Saturday, too. All we did was sweat none stop all day long even without being under the lights. It is the most exhausting day even after getting a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.

I also think that it is just flat out boring. lol There is no suspense or drama. It is very predictable.

I think the main issue for me is that I don't need the stage and that part of it. I actually hate doing the routine at the night show but can deal with comparisons without much problem, at all. I like the prep part of it. I like the daily dieting and training and structure of it all and how I feel most of the time - being leaner and lighter even if I have to give up some strength. I like the way I look on a day to day basis. I honestly could prep for 52 weeks a year and like it - I am fucking weird like that. Dieting or prepping is therapy for me.

Maybe you guys can try this (assuming you don't already know it of course)

A cool trick with competitions my uncle talked about is to keep a cooler/ziplock bag of ice water with a hand towel inside. Wring it out and wrap it around your neck and it helps keep you fresh and feeling vibrant with all that heat and stress. Doesn't mess up the pro tan, neither.

Thanks for the vid Skip, good shit.

I feel exactly the same it's more about the journey then the destination like Skip has said before. I love the routine of prepping for a show but generally don't enjoy contest day and hate the post contest period. Kind of feel some post-partum blues... ha ha ha

Keep in mind I have never actually won a show, maybe winning would change my perspective a bit

I have not won an overall but I have won weight classes and, at least in my experience, it is no different.

I can TOTALLY RELATE to those words!! I sometimes have nightmares about pigging out on a bunch of junk food then looking like crap, LOL! I'm happiest when I'm on my diet & training plan and looking the way I want to look, and feeling good of course.

Those who push further when the effort gets difficult are the ones who will win.

Per what I was discussing with Scott a couple of weeks ago....your response is very healthy and refreshing. I love it! More people need to adopt that mindset...whether they need meds first or some good therapy. It's nice reading that the JOURNEY really is what matters. Seems like in life period that is where you really evolve. And no matter the outcome you have already won something for yourself.
