“Enjoy every second of it whether it's the offseason where you're building to get to your first prep to start your cut. Don't feel like it's a chore because it’s a huge commitment. It's time, it's body, it's everything. It's all of you.” —Renee Gareau

Undergoing bodybuilding prep requires pushing our physical and mental limits. While the desire to improve and compete is motivating, truly listening to our body's needs is crucial for long-term success and well-being. Sometimes, we may have to make necessary adjustments to make progress without burning out. This awareness will help us better structure our training, nutrition, and recovery so that we can continually enhance our physique while also caring for our whole self in the process.

This week, we are showered with timely insights about better understanding our body's needs during preps and offseasons from our guest, Renee Gareau. 

Listen in as Renee opens up about the physical and mental challenges she faced during her first prep, the importance of support systems, the power of truly committing to the bodybuilding lifestyle and enjoying the process, and lessons learned about maintaining an active lifestyle.
