We ready! 😜 3 days out from the Tricky Classic and excited to show our hard work! Not sure what to expect for our first show but We know that the day will be full of enjoyment and a learning experience 😌💕
When you're on the rise, people will always be there to question your abilities.
Let me just tell you guys when I say I am pushing myself to my maximum limit, it is nothing less than the truth. More than an hour of cardio a day? Low caloric consumption? It's so damn difficult. I have to keep my mind ALWAYS busy or the "hangry" thoughts eat me alive. People will always be there to question HOW you did it. Do you wanna know HOW?! My mental and physical strength that I have that was hidden inside me!! THATS HOW. And when people question my abilities, it does nothing, but ignite this flame inside of me greater and greater. I thrive off doubt and proving everyone wrong. So, watch me shine Saturday✌🏼🤙🏼
Christmas is coming early for @bowensb10. Sitting 5 days out from #trickyjacksonclassic .
A lot of competitors these days want to make excuses on why they can't do this or that. Brandon works 72 hours a week, has a wife, 3 kids, 3
Chihuahuas, still gets his cardio and workouts in and doesn't miss a meal. He trains with intensity, doesn't complain and does exactly what hes supposed to do.
Competitors constantly say things such as
That's too much cardio
That's not enough food.
That's too much food.
If you want to achieve a competitive physique, you will have to suffer to some extent. If you're not and you question why you didn't win or place how you expected, you probably made one too many excuses.
Six days until I demonstrate this physique I've been working for since May of 2017. Yes, I've underwent a 25 week long prep. 25 weeks of the same meals day in and day out because my body needed work. I can express that. What have I gained from this duration of time...? Not only my best physique, BUT ALSO an abundance of self discipline, strength, dedication, willpower, commitment, and persistence. All characteristics I possessed prior to prep, but not at their maximum potential. I did this because I wanted a challenge. I wanted to prove to myself what I could physically and mentally. I wanted to go through an experience that would scare me, test me, and push me out of that comfort zone. I have such mixed feelings going into this last week and I'm ready to just kill it on stage. I feel so comfortable with my physique, my suit, my routine, my everything. Leaving it all on stage after Saturday💪🏼😁
It doesn’t matter how many followers or likes you receive, how much money you have, or the car you drive. It is the character you show upon others, I have met many amazing people in my fitness journey, most of my best friends today have been my competition in the past, there’s absolutely nothing more rewarding than finding those special people who uplift you and motivate you to be, and do your best.
7 days out fam, it’s getting real. Wrapping up the best package I can step on stage with this year. Been a blessing to stay healthy 🏆⚔️💪🏼
"The hardest step she ever took was to blindly trust in who she was." --Atticus
A quote that can speak for itself. Never did I think I would be one to be prep for a bikini competition, or share my life on social media with such transparency, or love myself more than I could ever imagine. It's amazing what time, change, and taking risks can do for you. I had a discussion with @c.fifefit earlier today and found that we are so similar with our situations. I grew up being modest with my body and hiding it from everyone as much as possible and NOW ten days from stepping on stage and throwin' out as much poise and sass as possible to demonstrate the physique I have worked for. It's a CHANGE. It's what is outside of my comfort zone, but life is all about taking those risks. Believing in yourself and taking a leap of faith. That's what I did and I am so proud of the leaps I have blindly taken. If you're on edge about a decision, JUMP, LEAP, STEP to the unknown because you never know what door of opportunity is around the corner✨

10 days out. Nothing else to do but get drier. The work is done. Thanks everyone sincerely for the constant motivating messages, they truly mean the world to me. Doing this myself it’s only me, I don’t have a coach for reassurance, just myself. It sometimes drives you crazy, I need more size, I need to be leaner. Finally all starting to fall into place now. Good luck to everyone competing at the Tricky Jackson Classic! We almost there fam 🙌🏼⚔️🏆💪🏼
I said no more shirtless pics till day of competition. Well sowwwwwy here’s one. 11 Days Out. Have a lot going on during this prep but thanks to all of you that show us support and understand Us Competitors that we go through a lot to take the best physique that we can to stage while still living a regular daily life. At times we have to be our own coach, our own cheerleader and at times we have to kick our own a** to go up against great athletes and see if we can bring some hardware back home 🏆🏆🏆 #2gunzfitnesstraining#trickyjacksonclassic#w4r#npcmensphysique#motivation#motivated#hungry#npc#fit#biceps#aesthetic
Yes I’m always hungry for food especially doughnuts, but I’m also hungry to succeed. I can’t believe in less than two weeks I’ll be stepping on stage for my first time. I’ve never been so dedicated, committed or “hungry” for something in my life and that’s what keeps me going. All the hours of cardio, eating the same meals over and over, being completely exhausted, stressed and anxious will all be worth it when I can say I did this and never gave up, go kill your Tuesday guys !
Oh hey, been MIA for a minute 👋🏼
Im still here though, hopefully you didn't get your hopes up lolol. Just have been really taking time to focus on things I need to focus on these last few weeks, and getting refocused on the things I lost track of.
Just a lil update: this is yesterday's check in, post-refeed, woke up at my new lightest this morning, & have 13 more days to really bring it all together with @jmihalyfit 💀 #TeamMihaly
In a daze after my second round of cardio... I feel like I've gone off the deep end. Memory is gone, energy is so low, all the prep feels, BUT JUST TWO WEEKS. I AM SO CLOSE🤙🏼🙌🏻
♦️Post workout drink is @1upnutrition Original Cola BCAAs. Different flavor you may think, but it's bomb just like every other flavor they offer. Use KTFIT to save you 20% on some🔥

I've literally never been so tired and sore in my lifetime. Every morning it gets harder and harder to climb out of bed. I'm currently training 3 times a day, working 3 jobs and taking administrative classes at night (while doing cardio). To say I'm physically and mentally exhausted would be an understatement. However, with that being said, nothing hurts worse than giving up. I didn't come this far to only come this far. I know each cardio session...each meal...and each workout is getting me closer to my ultimate goal. You may see me struggle, but I promise you'll never see me quit. 2.5 more weeks to bring it all together... "If you quit then go get popcorn...AND WATCH the ones that DIDN'T quit." #bodybuilding#npc#trickyjacksonclassic#fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitfam#isymfs#ironaddicts#fit#workout#workoutmotivation#muscle
"Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it faith. Feed it truth. Feed it with love."✨
I must say this quote hit the nail on the head.. When you tell yourself you CAN accomplish, do, or succeed at something, you WILL. If you choose to say you CANNOT, then odds are you WON'T. I've told myself many, many times I couldn't do something and I didn't. I never had faith in my performance when I was a swimmer and my career plummeted because of the negative thoughts that continuously filled my head. It tore me apart when my love for a sport dwindled away JUST BECAUSE OF MY MIND and what I was telling myself.
These next eighteen days is all mind over matter. I'm keeping my mind, thoughts, head, all in a good, positive place because the outcome of my 25 week prep could be all for nothing if my mind isn't in the "right" place. There is no room for doubt or error at this point. So, I am and will keep faith, truth, and love surrounding me to get me to the end
