Chasing Arnold – 10 Weeks Out

Bodybuilding is one of the most niche sports out there, especially for women, so I started making little videos of what it’s like to train for a competition (also called a show.)

In this episode it’s ten weeks before the Arnold Amateur, one of the largest international bodybuilding-bikini competitions in the world, and it also happens to be Christmas.

During show prep (the 12 weeks prior to your competition) your diet is very strict and, I don’t know about you, but for me Christmas = cookies.  So, this is what it’s like to balance fitness pursuits with holiday customs.
