#PrepWithPurpose: IFBB Icon George Farah

ARE YOU NEW TO #PrepWithPurpose?! For backstory on what this is all about please read the original blog entry and/or Instagram Post. 

Hey Fit Fam,

Another week ... a new person to lift up and for!! Before we get into that .. just a quick little update on what is going on in my "prep world".

I am just shy of six weeks out from my first show of the season (assuming all my stomach issues at least remain the same and don't get worse.) Prep is MUCH different this year so far. Last year I dropped macros pretty drastically and added in extra HIIT at just4 weeks out from Team Universe (where I earned Pro Status.) However ... I did change the style of my workouts at about 10 weeks out. THIS year I'm doing a very SLOW decrease instead of a drastic one all at once. That started two weeks ago. So essentially I STOPPED reverse dieting two weeks ago and started a very small and steady cut. We are talking a few grams of fat and 5-10 carbs out at a time. Actually this week we didn't cut ANY carbs. Only a few fat grams. Workouts haven't changed much since January and only ONE extra HIIT session has been thrown in. I'm sure things will get more aggressive in the coming weeks. I'm nervous .. excited .. and ready to be back on the stage soon!

Starting #PrepWithPurpose at the beginning of prep last year was the best thing I've ever done. While I slacked some in the off season (mainly due to lack of entries coming in) .. I will stay up all night if I have to in order to find people to feature during this prep! Keeping OTHER PEOPLE as my focus provides such clarity and motivation! That little reminder that I AM ABLE and making this adventure about more than "me, me, me" lights a fire under me like nothing else ever has! I hope it does that for you too .. even if are just needing some day to day motivation! You don't have to be on any kind of "prep" to lift up and for others in need!

I saw on Instagram that a well known coach in the #FitFam is battling cancer. He will be the focus and motivation behind every rep and every stride this week. I complain about my stomach issues a lot (here was my very open and honest post I made last week about my Celiac disease) .. but my flare ups are nothing compared to what this man is going through. I will spend this week being extra grateful for the health that I do have!

Prep With Purpose: IFBB Icon George Farah

IFBB Pro and bodybuilding guru George Farah (who has worked with many well known pros including Kai Greene and Dexter Jackson) is reported to have stage 4 colon cancer. He confirmed he does in fact have cancer today on his Instagram page today.

Yes I do have a bad cancer but I have beating death before. I can't afford to lose I have many people relying on me and thanks to you my fan/family for help making me the man that I am today. Love you all and I will keep you posted on the good the bad and the ugly so hopefully after I beat that thing I can help many people around the world. Life goes on and I am still helping many great athletes to achieve their dreams to becoming reality. Stay posted. Thank you and God bless.
