Science “Fitness” Fair Project




Remember being in elementary and having to do a science fair project?  You came up with a hypothesis. A procedure. Ran experiments with controlled test subjects. And then made a conclusion based on your data.  Hoping you would get more than a participation ribbon when it was all said and done.  Well it’s time to go back to Science Days. Except now I’m the scientist, the test subject, and it’s way more fun because now I appreciate the process!  I am currently studying advanced fitness nutrition (thanks to Papi who helped me realize this is my favorite part of competing), and am doing a peak week starting today. There is no contest for me until next year, but I want to see what will happen when I make changes to what I have done in the past for peak week.  Working on the little things, makes the biggest differences.  And this time the judges are going to be evaluating my finished project. Not my poster progress boards.  It should be illegal to have this much fun, seriously…how did I get so lucky?

so put on your thinking cap, and learn something new about your body!  Happy Lifting. 




It’s a Numbers game…and I love math!


It’s peak week.  The Arnold is 6 days away and I’m in full peak week mode.  For those that don’t know the game…this is the week that bodybuilders dial in regarding training and nutrition right before a competition.  Don’t do peak week right and all your hard work will not show on stage.  It is very important to hit set macros (carbs, fats, and proteins) right on.  Water is crucial.  And workouts key.  By this time in the game, your diet will make or break you.  I LOVE peak week.  Getting super excited to compete against the best amateurs in the world.  I have checked out some of the competition, when I say best in the world, it’s not an exaggeration.  About to cook my next meal!  Good times to all out there, prepping, building, or just enjoying the ride.
