I think Ron had someone proofread and/or write that for him. I only noticed one real typo- usually Ron's posts are full of incorrect spellings, typos and mistakes of any kind.
Excellent job Ron!!! I guess those classes are paying off! :p
AD- I'm sure you've answered this elsewhere, but how come you were so far off at the Arnold? Some speculate you were out of shape and still needed to fulfill a contract obligation...or of course others thought maybe you did something different with your your supplementation and didn't know how your body would respond. Maybe you were just tired?
Let's get this clear I'm a self sponsored athlete. I've never been sponsored so no I had no obligation. In saying that I had no obligation to anything in the sport. I did the USA July north American sept then got my pro card Nov.
I was all relaxed and thinking long term plans when i was surprised 2 days before Xmas with an Arnold invite. And against everybody's advise I did the show. I was already off my diet and not training for a month at that point. But the Arnold Classic it was like a cartoon when the smell of food comes lingering into a room and you take a whiff and you start floating in the air towards that wonderful smell.
I honestly looked at a video we shot at the room the day of the Arnold and it took us a few minutes to figure out what we were looking at. I broke out in laughter when i realized it was from the Arnold and the video in my hands from 5 weeks out I was 100x better.
The sad thing is i didn't see how bad I looked until then . I never looked after the show.
My girl told me don't ever put her through that again!
My son said next time Dad!
My old training partner told me don't ever do that again , that's not you.
I've taken my licks for that and in the long run I'll be better for it.
Yeah i tried less supps but that's a personal choice,not an excuse. I'm doing the same thing now and I'm looking good and feeling great.
I've made a total of 2,000$ as a pro. Thats from the Arnold so should I have made 0$ not competed at the Arnold and waited around for a miracle?
No way get your ass kicked pick yourself back up Fuck dusting off your shoulder and start busting your ass back to the top!!!!
I learned my lesson when MD didn't pay me for my photo shoot in Texas . After speaking twice with my fiance , convincing her I wouldn't be late to the Cowboy / Redskin game which I planned on going to , since a victory is never a guarantee in bodybuilding I wanted to do something fun outside of the weekend of bodybuilding.Needless to say ,the photo shoot went late and I got goose eggs. So i can only do what my heart desires not what everyone else who's known me for the past couple years thinks I should do. ( actually thinks they know me would be a little more correct).
I'd say it was the equivalent of Jordan having a bad game
I'm no Jordan though don't take that the wrong way, I meant bad day's just happen sometimes even to the best!
Man i looked horrible at that Arnold I guess that's why 2 hrs a day cardio isn't fazing my energy level I'm on a mission.
hope that explains a little better.I'm off to the gym.
