#throwback #tbt #thursday
#november #23 is special in my calander.
In 2008 on this day i made my debute on #mrtamilnadu stage. With no expectation i did my perperation with my friend kris balak and my pillar of support @murtuzabb.
What was special about the show. After winning a district, my friend Kris asked me to meet Murtuza and plan to do a state show. With no expectation i got his contact, called him up and met him. Murtuza introduced me to the better side of bodybuilding and was talking about doing it more scientifically and logically. The moment of truth... I never knew we were going to grow together from boys to men and set up a bright future in the field of bodybilding. We started the prep approximately 8 weeks out. We never planned to win the show but to give our best. We spent an hour in the gym in the mornings and evenings. Spent endless hours of cardio on the road.
The day before the show, i asked murtuza, when do we start dehydrating... he says.. lets not dehydrate... lets eat ice cream... in the weeks of my prep, i started trusting him and i did not do a single step on my own. So what next, i ate loads of ice cream on my carb up.
Nov 23, 2008 we oiled up and entered the show.. as i siad with no expectation.... for the first time i hear a huge crowd cheer my name.... Thats when the passion turned into addiction... and from then on.. there has not been a day where i have been away from this sport physically or mentally.... There is no real message today guys.. Just ran through my memory lane. Thanks you @murtuzabb for staying grounded always and being my true friend and critic.
