Team Sci-Unison Fitness 2013 INBF Hercules Hat Trick

The 2013 INBF Hercules is a natural bodybuilding show and witnessed Team Sci-Unison Fitness win 3 pro cards and the overall title in the same night.

The INBF Hercules has always been my favorite show to both compete at and to bring a team into. It is where I won my novice class in 07, took 3rd in the Open Heavyweight class in 2011, and where I got my first Pro Tyrone Robinson in 2012.  Therefore, the Herc has always felt like home. I would like to think that I have brought some pretty solid competition to this show in the past, but something was different about this year.

Tyrone of Team Sci-Unison Fitness Pro Debut

After turning pro last June at the INBF Hercules, Tyrone and I decided he should compete at the 2013 WNBF Northeast Classic hosted by Nancy Andrews.

This was our first time traveling for a show and we all had a great time. Everything was run very well and the show went relatively smooth. There were a few new changes we were faced with in the pro ranks. 1st was the fact that there isn’t any set weight classes as with the open. 2nd was that the pros get on stage super early for prejudging. In the open classes we are used to waiting till at  least 2pm to hit the stage. At this pro show prejudging started at 9/9:30

Tyrone weighed in at 152lbs. We later found out that his weight class cut off at about 182 lbs. Thats a 30 pound difference. Damn, welcome to the pro ranks. Here is a photo to show the size differences.

Cody W 16 Weeks out INBF Hercules 2013

Cody W from Team SUF Natural Bodybuilding and is prepping hard for the 2013 INBF Hercules. He currently resides in North Carolina. He was able to take a trip up to New York this weekend which gave me a chance to check his progress and take some photos.  We are currently at the 16 week out mark as of this posting. I am glad to say that Cody is ahead of schedule and ready to rock and roll. In the past the number one problem was having to lose too much weight, in a short amount of time. The short and stressful diet is not a productive approach in my opinion. I would much rather have a longer, but much less stressful diet. This is exactly our approach this year. This year we are down for the crown, Cody is shooting hard for that pro card at the 2013 INBF Hercules.

Here are some photos. He looks phenomenal at the 16 week out mark…

Mind Muscle Connection – Lifting with Control

When you sign up to the gym and make the choice to dedicate yourself, you have to clearly define what your goals are.

Do you wish to be a power lifter ?

Do you wish to be a weight lifter ?

Do you wish to build a better looking physique ?

Although each of these goals may slightly overlap each other, they each have significantly different approaches.

powerlifterA power lifter’s goal is to lift the most amount of weight. There is no considerable emphasis placed on hypertrophy (muscle growth) or symmetry. They are essential function over form. The training is based around lifting awesome amounts of weight. The training and the numbers behind this approach are definitely impressive. There is also alot of technique involved. The old saying is that in power lifting the only concern is making the lift without the red light coming on. This is not to say that no hypertrophy will be experienced in power lifting. There are some pretty big guys out there. However, in terms of symmetry and overall appearance… well that isn’t the focus so it shouldn’t be expected to be a strength. It is also necessary to re-think the idea of looking at the bigger power lifters and draw the conclusion that.. Power lifting created the Beast. The truth is, that genetically the beast was always a beast, and lifting heavy things was always a strength of this type of person. So therefore… The Beasts turn to Power lifting. Not to mention the use of performance enhancing drugs in some. This is not an attempt to discredit people, but when I think in terms of arguments I like to remove that variable from the equation.
