Training For NPC Figure Competitions

A Reader's Countdown to Competition: 12 Weeks Out

Check out the latest progress report from Figure Princess, who is training for several National Physique Committee figure competitions. You can read about her entire journey on the OnSugar blog Live. Laugh. Love. Lift.

OK, this last Saturday was the 12 week mark. I was really happy with my progress pictures this week and can see my glutes and hamstrings starting to catch up. Like many women, this area is typically the last place I lose fat from and the first place it comes back.

The big changes for this week are that my two steak meals are gone and have been replaced with three meals of tilapia. This of course happens the day after I buy up all the flank steak at the grocery store, but hopefully it will be back in the plan at some point. Until then, I'll just bury it in the back of the freezer so I don't miss it so much. Aside from that, things are staying consistent. I'm still getting ample amounts of protein along with oats, sweet potatoes, and fibrous green veggies every day. Training sessions are still solid and I'm continuing to see some strength gains week to week. Also, it's FINALLY starting to warm up outside so I'll be able to do my morning cardio with my dog outdoors. It's hard to drag myself to the gym alone at 4:45 each morning when I have to see this:

Every day is what you choose to make it, so make it a great week everyone!
