2012 NPC NUTRIMART CLASSIC – Telmo Torres
I recently competed in the Utah Npc Nutrimart classic. I competed in the open light heavy weight and also in the Novice Heavy weight class. I placed 3rd in the open Division and 2nd in the Novice division. As I reflect back on the competition and let everything sink in. I realized that I didn’t look my best. I worked hard and gave it everything I had. I gave it all to my training, diet and cardio. It was a journey I won’t ever forget. I realized something’s that made me actually believe in myself and realize that winning comes in due time.
As a competitor I always want to win, I always want to be the very best. I’ve heard people say “you don’t train for second”. I took 2nd and realized that saying to be very true although I worked hard and gave it my all I didn’t reach the end goal which was to win. It’s hard to swallow and be excited about 2nd place during the moment. As I have taken some time to relax and look back on the results. I realized this to be a blessing. It’s fueled me to push harder and train harder. I won’t leave any stone unturned as I move forward in my career and training. It gave me the chance to look at my weaknesses and work hard to improve on those. I learned that I won’t ever take anything for granted and always give 100% to training, diet, cardio and whatever I’m doing in life because you never know what the person standing on stage next to you is doing.
I worked hard to get to where I am today and for that I’m proud of myself but is it good enough? Never! I was talking to fellow competitor the other day and he was telling me I don’t feel like I’m making progress and I don’t look like I want to. Well I told him, the day I’m content with what I look like and think I look good enough is the day I stop training. Never be complacent Never be satisfied and never be willing to give up because you think you’re ready. You can always be better.
I was blessed enough to meet some people during my Journey who have helped me and believe in me. I’ve been picked to be a sponsored athlete for mysportsnutrition.com. I have a coach who wants to help me reach the top and a wife who supports me in the sport which is so difficult. This sport is defiantly a team support the end result couldn’t be attained without a team.
Weeks after the show I sat down and talked to my coach. We discussed something I need to improve on and we decided since I haven’t ever hard a productive off season its time I take one. I will keep you guys updated on the progress, diet and training in the coming weeks. We decided to give myself some time to grow since dieting down to a light heavy was nearly impossible last time I don’t think my body will allow it anymore especially with a productive off season. The goal is to put on some quality mass, 10-15 pounds in the next 6-8 months and compete some time next spring or summer 2013 a local show then a national level show.
Special thanks to mysportsnutrition.com, Charlie Estes, Shane Heugly and my wonderful wife Joette Torres for helping me get to where I am today. Stay tuned for more updates on training, nutrition and life!!
