I love meeting people on all levels! One of the reasons why I fell in love with this game from the start was how I was able to have an impact on all types of people without me knowing it. So bumping into people on the street telling me how much I’ve taught/inspired/influenced them in some sort of way is just the best feeling ever! I appreciate all the love I receive and I try to give as much back as I can! Thank you guys! By the way - I’m always up for a photo - but beware, I will try to outangle you or act like a fool every single time 😅
Some thoughts on the possibly class crossover I’ll be making! 1️⃣ The SIZE of my legs - can I improve enough to compare against Classic Physique athletes? My conditioning isn’t something I worry about when it comes to my legs 2️⃣ My knees - actions has been taken to change that my knees has been an on and off issue for my leg workouts. Will they be able to recover and enable me to reach my full potential? 3️⃣ I am able to put on additional 6-7 kilos of muscle mass before reaching the weight limit in classic - will I be able to put on that much size in such a short amount of time? 4️⃣ Will this crossover take too much focus away from my Men’s Physique roots? I want to stay true to what I really love!
A little throwback to competing in Spain - full blown after 2 days of eating after my show 🤣 #tbt
It's you against the world sometimes. What matters is what you're able to do when no one is watching you, when no one else is in the room. Photo captured by the amazing @juanjacksonjuanjackson
Your thought can be your greatest enemy or your most powerful ally! At times I can be the image of confidence - but I do have self-doubt, I have insecurity, I have fear of failure! We all do - but we can’t deny it, but we also can’t capitulate to it - we just have to embrace it. I remember Vicki told me to take my shirt off to take this picture which was the day after my Olympia show in 2016 - and I looked at her shaking my head thinking - I am bloated because we are a crazy big dinner after stepping off stage - she called me out for being a b|tch and told me to take off my shirt right away and I looked almost better than I did on stage!
I wanna be the best at everything I do with passion and I’m not going to let anything stand in my way. What others may think of you does not mean anything - what YOU think of YOU and what you believe to be possible means EVERYTHING! So be careful what you think and speak to yourself every day!
As we step into a another year I want to celebrate love! Which photographer was able to capture it the best? 1. @lvh_foto (top left) 2. @janteller (top right) 3. @nadiafryd (bottom left) or 4. The selfie edition? (Bottom right)? I know it’s cliche but I honestly know that I wouldn’t have been able to do what I do without @_vickizoe_ and it makes the quote “behind every great man is an even greater woman” have a special meaning to me - because it’s the truth!
As my #bestnine2018 shows, this year has been heavy characterized by competitions, a total of 7 shows and I thank you all for helping me get through all of them! BUT in my mind, that is only a “small” part of my 2018 - this year I’ve put on my grownup pants! My love, my best friend, my biggest supporter, my everything @_vickizoe_ and I got married in August, bought our house in September and jumped straight on the plane to California for our honeymoon and the @mrolympiallc ! My 2019 is going to be very goal oriented - in my physique, my work, prioritizing nurturing relationships and improving myself mentally! As to competition plans - I have none at this moment, but the changes to be made in my physique will be according to me considering competing in Classic Physique!
