This past Saturday I placed 2nd in the Open Middleweight class and 1st in the over 50 class at the NPC Europa. Eric Hannah who won the middleweights looked incredible! I didn't enter the over 40 division because last year the 40+ guys told me to move up to the the 50+ class and don't come back! LOL!
Unfortunately my camera battery died before the show even started. I'll be receiving some photos from the show at some point, but for now here are some from a couple days prior.
I will be competing in the IFBB North American on August 28th and 29th. So, Sunday morning it was right back to work with a 2 mile fast walk in Dallas. Last night it was 30 minutes on the Lifecycle. I would have rather lifted, but everything was sore from repeated pumping up and posing on Saturday. I bet I did at least 500 pushups and 150 pullups during the course of pumpiong up for my divisions in prejudging and at the night show. This morning it was a 2 mile walk at 5am, clients all morning, then a great leg workout at noon. I was feeling a little weak from the weekend and sore in the lower back and knees, but I ended up lifting pretty well today.
