With the guidance of my mentor Nick Selek, I did much less training, and much less straining, and with the perfect combination of training and nutrition, I managed to get into my best condition ever! An amazing achievement which I am very happy and proud of. Falling in between 2 different divisions, I was unable to enter both and had to make the decision – Figure or Fitness, so I went with the more comfortable for myself (in an exhibiting way), the Figure! In an amazing line up with great standard and differing physiques, it was very close and we were gruelled on stage for about 40 minutes! It was a tough decision, and the judges eventually favoured a larger, tougher physique.
