Thank you Joel, that means a lot to me, you know how much I respect you opinions and comments!
And finally, here are some 2008 contest shots!!!
Because we see ourself everyday, we tend not to realize the progress we make... but my friend Sam caught my attention when he asked me to take a close look at these two side chest poses! (One from 2003, at my first contest... and the other one 5 years after, in 2008)
Even though I often complain because natural athletes need to be very patient and be happy when adding 2-3lbs of lean muscle in a year... I was pretty satisfied to realize that we can see some great improvement when we look at it in a longer term (like 5 years)...
