Dallas Journey to the Olympia : Day 1
Day 1: August 16, 2015
Welcome to my Journey to the Mr. Olympia. This is going to be a look inside every aspect of the last 5 weeks of my prep. My daily thoughts, how I am feeling physically and mentally and how from a quantifiable perspective of training, cardio and diet how we are approaching every variable on a daily basis. Thank you guys for following along with my journey as I am quickly approaching the Olympia stage! I cant wait to touch down in Vegas in just 4 short weeks!
We are now in the final phase of this year's Olympia prep. Travel is done until after the Olympia and camp will be set up and fully established in Boca for the remaining 4 weeks until Matt, Jordan and myself as well as the rest of the Redcon1 team heads out to Vegas.
One of the biggest things that helps me mentally throughout prep is taking progress pictures often. Not only for myself but also for Matt and I to review and insure we are on the right track. I also am often comparing this years pics to last years in terms of the day to date to monitor the progress I've made over the past year and I am excited about what has taken place.
The goal is to really push the conditioning over the next 3 weeks so diet changes as well as changes to cardio have been made to start this week and you will see that as follows below!
