Huge congrats to these lads competing in their first Comp over the weekend . (Skinny guy also shown: Pat) . The main reason I competed myself was so that I would be able to fully understand my clients and what they go through during a prep – these two guys trusted me through that process and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity. . Both @kakadrea and @fitnesslife880 (soon to be @theindianadonis ) gave everything me they had over the past few months. They both trained their arses off, took control of their diets and generally just did what they needed to in order to get the job done. . Just the start for these guys, can’t wait to see where they can push to from here!💪 . Huge shout out to the rest of the team and @pdhammes @benperformancecoach for putting in the extra time behind the scenes to make sure everything was dialed in to a tee! . If you’ve thought about competing, or have a questions, shoot me through a DM @trainasp . Cheers to everyone at @icn_victoria As well and posing coaches and judges on their ongoing support in helping the sport to grow!

You know what excites me more than Strength gainz?! . Hormonal gainz. Blood work gainz. Confidence gainz & behavioral changes. . Seeing a client walk into the gym wearing a singlet for the first time, or having the confidence to rock a pair of booty shorts in summer. . At the end of the day, most people train to feel good about themselves. And getting the opportunity to earn a living from that? That’s pretty h*ckin sweet. . 📸@coachgeorge1

Just a reminder: you’re right on track. Don’t project someone’s life’s achievements (final form) onto your current self. . “One thing to consider about the most brilliant people that have ever lived, is that many of them have spent years and years in a state of complete confusion about what would eventually become their area of expertise. “ – Stephen West, of the “Philosophize This” podcast on Immanuel Kant #trainasp

2019 goals – are you on track? . Have you thought this through? What DAILY action are you taking? . “If you don’t choose what thoughts and images you expose yourself to, someone else will” – Epictetus . Ps. What ever inspo quote it is, the stoics probably said it first

Question: what food have you craved during a diet, that was no where near as good as you mentally built it up to be? . #tbt to 1 day out my @icn_victoria debut . First coat of war paint, and about 1.5 million grams of carbs.

If you look closely, you’ll see 2 distinct things in this photos. . 1. Someone (me) wearing a hat – it happens very rarely (as hats make my already odd-shaped some look somewhat more phallus-like in nature). This was a Kris-Kringle present and says “COACH” across the front. I also constantly carry a whistle on my person at all times now. . 2. Someone (also me) spending more time enjoying the company of family, friends and food, more than worrying about social media or whether or not I’m sticking to my diet plan or hitting macros. . Having a good body is important (why would you not?) but having a great h*ckin life is even more important. . Hope everyone is doing just swimmingly. . Much love, Coach Cadd
