My preparation schedule for training and diet continue as this year’s Olympia gets closer, and I’m reminded that dieting can be tough for anyone, whether you’re competitive or not. It’s no secret that diet is always the hardest part of getting in shape, but it’s just a fear in your mind that you won’t have enough energy for your next workout.
It’s all a mental game. Set your mind up to succeed and stick to your plan. Of course, dieting just to look good and be healthy is one thing, but when you’re preparing for a professional show like the Olympia, where the best athletes in the world are coming in their best condition, that’s a new level of mental games.

The only way to keep doing it is by being disciplined and staying on a schedule. Being strong on the inside means you can train yourself to be strong on the outside. Getting in great shape once means a lot, but it doesn’t mean you can do it again. You meet new challenges each time, and you have to meet them face-to-face. Dieting can be tough, but if you stay motivated and stick to your program you can get consistent results.
