4 reasons why i compete:
Why not? The reason runners partake is marathons is because one can be good at performing an activity by themselves, but when a challenge comes up there is no choice but for one to be at their absolute best….you bring it! Competing provides an opportunity to benchmark performance and in my case body symmetry, conditioning etc.
Getting ready for a competition gives me a tangible goal that keeps me focused. I am not motivated 365 days a year but once I pick a show, I commit to go hard for prep.
I make the most gains physically when I get ready for a competition. My body composition changes from the intense prep and tends to hold to the new form meaning less body fat and more muscle.
To win! I am competitive and if I’m going to go through the trouble of working out extremely hard and eating clean, then I’m going for gold!
