    Keeks Continuing Quark-fuelled Quest...for Globe-Like Glutes & Boulders for Shoulders

    Well here goes.....after lurking around for a while learning as much as possible, I thought its time to start a journal in the hope that I'll learn more, track my progress, and stay motivated if and when I have a wobble!

    Basically, after training for about a year, I did my first comp last summer. It was an independant first timers show and I did the toned figure catergory. I placed 2nd but there were only 3 of us anyway! I was so happy though that I'd got up on stage and got such a buzz from it all, it got me firmly hooked! The first pic is the night before the comp, abs seemed tighter the week before though. Happy enough with my back & arms, abs ok but will be tighter this year, but poor glutes & legs, and cellulite that would not shift. Feedback from some people at the show was that I had the shape that is suited for UKBFF Bikini category, so decided to give that a try.

    After my first comp though, I came off my diet and over-ate for a few weeks-big mistake! Then decided to give the UKBFF Leeds show a go, so got back on the diet but this time, the fat would not shift. I decided to go ahead with the comp although I was far from happy with how I looked, but just to see if this category was for me and so I could decide where to go with my training.

    The show was a really high standard, and there were 12 girls (the highest number in any of the bikini cat qualifiers). They only placed top 3 so don't know how badly I did, but learnt loads from it, and decided that I am probably more suited to bikini category. Again, far from happy with glutes & legs, cellulite that still wouldn't shift, poor condition.

    Which brings me to where I am now. I've got myself a PT/Prep coach who has adapted my training, and my aim is to compete in the UKBFF Leeds show in September, then possibly the West Midlands & Midlands shows the weeks after. I'm currently dropping some quad work for the time being as they are pretty dominant, and will be doing 2 hams & glutes sessions per week, as these are my weakest areas. Upper body will be 3 sessions per week, however, just cutting down and changing back work out slightly, also hoping to build shoulders. Cardio at the mo is to a minimum, just 3 HIIT sessions per week, 2 sessions after upper body, and one extra session on a rest day.

    Current stats:
    132lb, 5ft 2
    Bust 34
    Wasit 25
    Hips 35.5

    Maintenance diet at the mo- 150g protein & 120g carbs (mainly rice & oats) at the mo, olive oil & nuts added through the day, split over 5 meals. Will then start dieting mid-late May, looking at approx 14/15 weeks to lean out.

    So, thats my background and where I'm going, heres to the next 8 months of kick a** training, dieting, sweat and no doubt tears along the way................roll on 23rd September!

    All input and opinions welcome and appreiciated, but please don't be too harsh, I'm still a newbie and learning all the time!

    Thanks for checking out my journal and hope to see you here again! :-)

    UPDATE LONG OVERDUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Right, quick update as after reading my first post again things have changed quite a lot.

    I ditched the bikini class as realised Im jut not that build, and went with the Toned figure class (Nabba) and this is what I orginally set out to do anyway. Oct/Nov 2012 was my first proper season, and I placed in four out of five comps I did. I even qualified for the NAC Universe in Hamburg but sadly couldnt make it. Anyway, I've added some comp pics.

    Yorkshire Open Toned Figure 2012 - 1st Place
    Central Britain 2012 Toned Figure (Nabba) - 2nd Place
    NAC British Championship 2012 Figure U35 - 1st Place (Qualified for NAC Universe)
    Nabba UK 2012 Toned Figure - 6th Place

    @ Milky - Thank you, I've learnt loads from here, spending hour after hour looking up info, but still so much to learn!

    @ Retro-Mental - Thank you, I'm happy with abs, or will be with better condition, but looking to work a lot more on glutes over next few months, looking for some lift so glute ham raises, here I come!

    I think the Bikini class this year is going to be very very popular. I think it will be great for UK-M having your Journal on here to raise the profile a little on the forums.

    I think you'll be a lot tighter this year as you have a long time to get ready. The first comp prep is always the hardest, you'll have stubborn fat that has been on the body a long time, subsequent diets always seem a little easier. I'd be tempted to start very aggressive on a diet this time and get the weight down fast then ease off in to the show. Make sure you see your coach regularly as you don't want too be too 'hard' for that class.

    Good luck with it all!

    Thank you!

    Yep, agree that bikini is going to be really popular now its going into its second year, but all makes for a better competition! And I also wanted to show that bikini girls work damn hard to, its not the easy option!

    As for diet, my prep coach has said the same, to start off at 14/15 weeks, pretty aggressively, it can be eased off towards the end, rather do it that way than not diet for long enough.
