The more and more i get into bodybuilding the more and more i see that this type of couple is possible. For me that is.
I’m talking about the powerhouse bodybuilding/fitness couple. They train together, compete together, push through the difficulties of contest prep together..from what i’ve seen IT’S PERFECT. Not saying that other couples can’t be AS in sync, but i have yet to see the type of connection i see amongst the kind of couple i wish that i one day could be a part of.
My coach and his beautiful woman (Chris and Tasha) are a perfect example of this kind of power couple. During my last visit to train with the coaches and team in Phoenix last month i had the opportunity to crash at their place while i was there. Let me tell you witnessing that type of connection made me feel envious. I WANT THAT KIND OF CONNECTION damnit!! lol. He is her coach as well so he designs her diet for her too, and it’s funny cause just like any contest prep woman if she gets moody..he brushes it off..if she is tired he doesn’t give her grief about always being tired. and i know she is the exact same way with him as he is with her. You should see them interact ..it’s so cute. they move around the kitchen as one solid unit..IT’S AWESOME!
I’m doing a very poor job of describing what i see when it comes to the power couple. I guess words just cant describe the elation i feel when i see these kinds of couples. I notice more and more how often these couples are popping up.
And i can only imagine how the intimacy works in with being so in sync in every day life. I dont want to be in a relationship where my partner doesn’t understand the difficulties that i’m going through..or have the same ambition i do when it comes to training, dieting and gaining muscle. That kind of relationship is VERY hard. Not to mention that when you are in contest prep you’re contstantly stressed because you’re trying desperately not to be a bitch because you KNOW the other person will take offense (stress = Increase in retention of water). I just feel and have witnessed that when a couple is more in sync with their goals and desires it makes the efforts in a relationship EFFORTLESS!! Which is what i need.
I want to be able to wake up to my man desperately trying to wake me up cause it’s 4:30am and we need to get ready to train. I want to have that stressed feeling when he and i are rushing around the kitchen putting our next 4 pre-cooked meals in tupperware cause we plan to train for hours. I want to be able to rely on him to help bush me to failure and spot me when i need those last few heavy reps in. I want to be able to go home and pass out with him on the bed because we are too exhausted to do anything else. I want to have a bodybuilding life with a partner who IS bodybuilding with me.
I’m a muscle nerd..and i need a muscle nerd that understands!! I”m just saying 🙂
