I want to share this with as many men as I can because at one point in time, this was my story too.
I was frustrated, stressed out and started lowering my goals based on my reality..
Maybe you have found yourself in a similar situation.....
It was just 6 weeks before my 2nd bodybuilding show when everything went wrong..
I LOST my job.
I had ZERO income to take care of my family and NO motivation.
My personal life was in a MESS...
Stress will find a way to derail your progress.
I decided to proceed with my competition and stepped on stage soft and with a lot more body fat than I wanted.
Two years prior, I stepped on stage with less than 4% body fat.
I trained just as hard as I did then, did the EXACT diet and yet still the fat would not come off.
This was my first lesson of how stress hormones negatively affect your physique.
