This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to her good friend Anastasia Boulais about stepping on stage in her first body building competition. Rather than getting an experienced competitors perspective on the training, the diet and the preparation for ‘peak week’, Mikki and Anastasia do a deep dive into these elements from a novice perspective. They discuss the motivation behind doing a show, what keeps Anastasia’s head in the game if motivation dips, what it feels like to really go to the well when deep in the calorie deficit, and some of the behind the scenes information for what it is like to be on stage judged solely on what you look like and how you show up. This is a conversation around training, diet, and mindset - so it’s not just for those interested in body building or physique sport.
