The routine or the “show” portion of a bodybuilding event often has mixed feelings amongst competitors. Some love it, others consider it a necessary evil. This is the part of the day in which the promoter makes money from the audience. This is why many spectators pay money to come and watch bodybuilders. However the routine portion of the show typically happens AFTER the judging decisions have already been made. Prejudging is the morning portion of the show in which competitors are placed side by side and compared while performing the exact same poses. The show portion of the even is more of just that – a show for the audience. Just because you more than likely have already been ranked among your competitors does not mean that you should just forget it and put no effort at all into your routine – as I said before, this is where the promoter makes the money and if you want to continue to compete in local shows, you want the promoter to put on a good one. Your routine should look natural and in order to do this, you need to practice.

That being said I came across the opportunity to try out a GNC exclusive brand Royal Sport LTD through some circumstance communication on Instagram. I was not overly surprised but certainly had a positive result in testing out these two products.
Searching the internet for information about reverse dieting, the very first result you will get happens to be this website. I did not pay anything at all to make this happen, fortunately for me there was little information available on the subject and after producing the blog post; it has continued to grow in popularity of visits daily. This phenomenon has resulted in numerous comments on the post as well as emails sent to me with questions from individuals concerning their personal situations, asking for help and insight. One of the most common themes of these questions is someone eating an estimated caloric intake and cannot understand why they are not losing weight or even gaining it. Because of this they come to the conclusion that their metabolism is not functioning properly and wonder if reverse dieting is the answer to their mysterious issues. Almost every time, the answer is no and the reason is simple – they are not accurately tracking calories. But when does tracking calories cross the line from being about accurate and transition into being an unhealthy obsession?
