Well guys the cut didn’t work. I did all I could and then some my body would not give in!!!! For the past two years I have not missed a meal shot pill training session cardio..... nothing. It wasn’t my time. We decided to pull out. Shooting again for October. I’ll give u a back story not as an excuse but how stress plays a role in a prep. I didn’t think it was such a big deal but at the end to get in the shape of being stage ready it’s a massive factor.
Last August mrs Lexi tore her acl and meniscus. Stupid thing that happened but it happened. I thought no big deal we’ll fix it do the rehab and she’ll be back on her feet in no time. Well it’s been 10 months she is still on crutches barley able to walk... theee surgeries later it’s all mess. They are talking another one. But hell no not allowing it. We finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I had the most amazing off season put tons of weight on great gear good training sessions. Even though I was running for two full time job about 60 hours a week house stuff taking care of wife kid driving my kid to her practice sessions 300 miles away 5xweek. I thought if there is a person who could do this it’s me. And I did!!! The worst part was to watch my wife being in excruciating pain 24/7 and not being able to do anything. Sleepless nights if I got 5 hours of sleep it was a good night. Well I fought up with me. I’m the actual prep I could tell early on that my body wasn’t responding the way I was used to but I wasn’t going to give up. I pushed thru no matter what. Didn’t want to let wife down my kid down you guys my coach. We did everything there was to do and we ran out of time. And i knew I would pay the price for all this stress well end d with shingles now. They hurt. !!! Man they hurt. If that’s the price I have to pay for it I’m good. I’ll take it but this stress had to come out somewhere !!! And there it is.
Already have a plan how to go forward and you will see me better then ever and will understand the difference between being stage ready and beach ready. Nothing is lost we all learned from it. The most important stuff if that wife is finally getting better and is back in the gym no pain for the diet time in 10 months. She ended up with gout in that knee that went undiagnosed for so long. I don’t know how she did it for so long but she is my hero.
Again incredible off season I had using IWGF gear. If I was going to be able to put so much weight on under those circumstances imagine what u guys can do if ur life is stress free.
Plan is to get my metabolism going again and stay lean. So I have been eating for a week now and I’m the same weight 248-250 when I was in full depletion for weeks on end if that tells u anything.
Sorry I let u down but I will be back better then ever that’s for sure. We are about 15 weeks out and already in very good place for that prep.
So now you know the story
