Five Back Stage Bodybuilding Mishaps to Avoid

You have dieted for over twenty weeks. You’re now just hours away from stepping on stage. Instead of exhilaration, you get a sinking feeling.

My Competition History

Those of you who have competed before know the grind of the process isn’t easy, especially if you have a full time job and family responsibilities.

I know, going forward, that I need to be complete without a single glaring weakness.

The Cage 2018 | "Strength"

To some lifters, performing in The Cage is the pinnacle of a long and arduous powerlifting journey. They don’t lift in The Cage for titles, trophies, or accolades. They lift for something much bigger—pride. Hundreds of eyes watch their every move, from each drop of sweat that falls to every inch the bar moves. What happens on this stage is a show for the audience, but for the athletes, it’s life.
