Hugh Ross aims to conqueror all at World C/ships in Ireland
With the atmosphere in Gyms charged with excitement as local bodybuilders pump
up their training as they focus more intently on preparations for the Hugh Ross Classic Body Building & Fitness Show, main event slated for July 28 at the NCC, Chairman of the Committee, Hugh Ross is himself blazing the competitive trail in pursuit of further glory.
Ross is in full contest preparation mode in his quest to raise the Golden Arrowhead at the NABBA World’s Bodybuilding Championships set for June 16th at the Grand Canal Theater in Dublin, Ireland.
Speaking with the Media, Ross indicated that the latter stages of his current preparations were the most difficult he has had to endure as a competitive bodybuilder. In addition to a hectic travel schedule, a full work schedule, coordinating & administering HRC’s events, Guyana’s leading International body builder informed that he came down with influenza at a time when his immunity was low as a result of extreme dieting.
According to him, the influenza not only resulted in a loss of valuable training time but also nine pounds of hard earned muscle over a five day period.
Ross commented: “With a background as an Ex-GDF Special Forces Officer and a Paratrooper, I am used to adversities, hence I reminded myself that it is better to attempt and fail as opposed to failing to attempt.
To that effect, I re-evaluated my diet during my down time and implemented a new strategy which entailed me testing how my body responded to different carbohydrates by switching them on a day to day basis.
The results were, not only did I discover which one would serve me best when it was time to carb load for my event; I also replenished my glycogen stores in the process which helped me to regain half of the weight that I had lost, in a very short period. That was an indication that I was ready to do battle in the gym again.”
A former successful powerlifter also, Ross further informed that at the moment he is still a bit behind with his preparations as a result of the time that was lost due to illness but noted that his latest challenge has served to fuel his efforts in the gym to an even greater level of ferocity.
“To that effect and with God’s Blessings, I will be ready comes June 16th. I would like to extend sincere gratitude to my family, friends, fellow athletes and fans for their continued support.”
