Show day, unlike any other sport where this day is the primary determiner of who is the winner and who is the loser, in bodybuilding, this day should actually be the least stressful. Over the previous weeks, months and in some instances years, the daily grind of managing your nutrition, training, cardio, and all the other factors has been extremely demanding, pushing you to your limits both physically and mentally. By the time show day comes, all the hard work has already been done, it’s time to just relax, chill and have fun. However, for many, it is quite the opposite. Andrea, Jeff and Brad are here to elaborate.
What was each coach’s most embarrassing moment from their first show? How should you handle traveling for a competition to ensure you get the best peak possible? What is the #1 rule for reducing stress on show day? All of these topics plus many more are answered in today’s podcast.
Be prepared, but also be flexible. Expect the unexpected. Don’t become too invested in winning. And remember, it’s just a show, time to enjoy and celebrate all of your hard work.
