The underbelly of competition

Competition Strategy

by Brandi

I had the pleasure of volunteering for the CBBF Bodybuilding and Physique Nationals that were in Edmonton this weekend, and as usual there were many triumphs and heart breaks. There will always be some who question the judging but from where I was, (very up close and personal) I supported most if not all of the decisions made. Something to take into consideration when trying to peak for an event is what the current trends are. Using techniques and strategies that worked 5 or 10 years ago is not going to serve you today because the sport has changed, and it keeps evolving.

 

The Month of Chris

by Brandi

Well June was the month of Chris with 2 Chris's making a splash. Chris Hodson took 2nd place in his first show ever - the IDFA Calgary classic. The first time doing a contest diet is hard for anyone but Chris always had a positive attitude and gave it 110% Congrats buddy!

 

Carbs

by Brandi

Today I am going to talk a little bit about carbs because for reasons that I do not understand some "experts" would like to try and fool the public into believing that carbs are bad and will make you fat. While I think it is hard to deny that in the past 20 years we as a species have generally gotten fatter, carbs are not the villain as much as convenience foods are, and yes this includes so called fitness products such as certain protein bars (which is more like a chocolate bar with some protein in it).

Contest Season 2012

by Brandi

First, my apologies for the long duration between blogs. As some of you already know, I am back in school again working on my BSc in Computing and Information Systems. With this it is my hope to expand on my client services and be able to make this website much more interactive. Please be patient with me while I learn the ropes, there are some big plans for the future of Cutting Edge Fitness. I welcome feedback from you, as to where you would like to see this website go, and how I can help you with your training using this medium.

 

The Nature of Success Movie

by Brandi

I really enjoy this movie. Sometimes when life seems overly complicated it is nice to have little reminders to keep us on track to our purpose.

2011 Provincials

by Brandi

The June shows are now over and I would like to thank everyone who came out and donated their time, and experience to volunteer for these events. It is a long day for everyone involved but most of all the Judges and the backstage staff who do not get breaks. The ABBA runs entirely from a volunteer pool, so I cannot say enough about all the great people involved who make these events possible.

 

2011 Northerns

by Brandi

Huge congrats to Cutting Edge Fitness Athlete Chris Norman for his awesome presentation and his 2nd place finish in his very first show. It was a close decision and a very competitive class. Chris brought fantastic conditioning and symmetry, and peaked perfectly for the event.
