Thanks for taking a peek. My name’s John Bosse and I plan to do most of this journal through video logs. As you may or may not know I am one of the videographers for the podcast Inside Natural Bodybuilding with Mike Neumann. I’ve been around the sport for a long time, but have never actually competed. Here goes nothin! I’m admittedly late to start doing this. I started a verrrrrryyyy slow prep back in Sep 2012 with the goal of doing my first shows this fall. It’s OK I think the most meaningful stuff will happen from here forward.
Here’s a vid clip introducing my idea to start documenting from here to finish and why I waited this long. I will paste in more vlogs that I just started doing eventually. I am a little unorthodox in my approaches so I think that’s a good way to hash out some of the mistakes I’ve made and lessons I’ve learned.
My profile pic is from when I first started prep in Sept 2012. I’ll first post general stuff about how I train and eat and then get into the recaps that bring me up to where I sit currently - about 40 lbs lighter.
Basically doing this for accountability to see this through thanks for any support in advance. I have a MS in Sports Dietetics, am a Registered Dietitian, BS Exercise Science, NSCA-CPT. Hoping I can also bring a little insight as well as proof that despite an academic background in ESS and nutrition I have been humbled by prep in seeing all the weird things that happen that we can’t fully explain and I wouldn’t pretend to.
