UKUP: "UK Ultimate Physiques" - October 2021
October 2021 - my first competition - was not allowed to do Masters Physique ("too big" apparently) so was put in some random "muscle physique" category where I looked tiny - did not place.
I tried to crash course posing in 1 week and it wasn't great, but I wasn't allowed to compete in my chosen category on the day anyway - masters physique. I'm not sure whether that was BS but I have heard others since been disallowed from competing in men's physique for being "too big". Oh well.
It was my first competition - this was the start of my understanding that thyroid HRT doesn't play well with cutting to super levels of body fat. I nearly threw in the towel and gave up, I can't tell you how shit I felt. I still don't know for sure why I couldn't do the category I chose months ago. I didn't look great on the day - I had thyroid gastric motility issues and stomach protrusion. I also tried to crash course the posing and was nervous as hell. I didn't deserve to place as I looked like crap so this wasn't a great introduction to the sport.
