A Natural Bodybuilder's Dream in a NY State of Mind

This film covers my experience and provides insight to my mindset leading up to the 2017 INBF Hercules Bodybuilding competition in New York.

This was a show I had my mind set on for four years and this show holds a special place in my heart. You get an insight into my peak week protocol a bit, get to see the process of what goes into getting ready for competition day, backstage footage, part of the battle on stage, and my final thoughts on the whole experience.

I really appreciate all the support from everyone who has followed my journey from the start. The amount of support I’ve gotten from you all throughout the contest season on IG alone has been humbling. Whether you’re a new viewer or have been following my process for a while now, I really hope you enjoyed this film. Please feel share this with those you feel it will resonate with and inspire. If you’re interested in some of the process leading up to the contest, check out previous videos on my channel titled “Chris’ Contest Chronicles”.

Closing Statement: I would like to thank you all for tuning in and experiencing this monumental time-point in my journey. The dream is still alive and the actions I take on a daily basis will allow me to realize my vision. I hope you all chase your own dreams and make them a reality.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me, followed me and encouraged me throughout this journey. The journey continues…
