Pump On Campus | Health and Fitness Week


I don’t fit with what people’s perception
of a powerlifter would be, people are always like, you’re not like, you know, they do this
motion, you’re not really very big are you. And I’m like, well no, but I am strong Bodybuilding is all about being completely
dedicated from the heart, from the time you get up in the morning till the time you go
to sleep. It’s not something that just anyone can
do. It really pushes your body to the limit. Like, how much harder can you train? How much harder can you push yourself? You have to sacrifice something to get something. Pain is temporary and glory is forever Eating 750 grams of boiled chicken every day 9 egg whites and three whole eggs Just egg whites, toast and one banana and a coffee and two scoops of protein is your life. I used to be a very skinny guy back when I
was in my high school that was the time when I had very few friends. I was really overweight, if I said oh I’m
gonna be a bodybuilder, people would’ve laughed at me. People doubted me last year when I said I was gonna do this When I was 18 I started working in security, I was really really small and I got thrown
through a door one night and just, yeah… I wasn’t able to kind of physically handle
myself the way I needed to. I saw these amazing athletes in magazines, I was like – damn. I wanna look like that. So I was like you know what, let me start
going gym. And when I first started I was so so weak,
like I couldn’t shoulder press the 4KG dumbbells I couldn’t do anything, I couldn’t do a press
up But as soon as I got into it, it becomes an
addiction and then you cannot control. It’s something you kind of fall in love
with, we don’t have to motivate ourselves to do it, we just love doing it. If you can get into a community of people who love training, it is very motivational I just started taking progress pictures, you know, showing my progress, and people were
like ‘bro you’re making some good progress, how you doing it?’ I think being online and speaking to other
people doing what you do, becomes really really important This is Gemma, ‘The roaming bodybuilder’ So guys, I’m going to do a quick breakdown
of the triceps Alright guys, welcome to my YouTube channel And for me I started discovering this whole,
kind of like, fitness industry Everybody’s awake and ready for show day, Game day boys Already buzzing, first physique show, What was your name? Lubomba I knew I was going to be standing naked in
a tent and be meeting my fellow competitors for the first time, – stark naked. This might just be there strangest thing, look at that, these are the tanning booths I was kinda freaked out, I was like ‘woah woah woah’, I didn’t sign up for this! You stand like this in the tent and then you have to turn around and get sprayed, and you’ll have your fellow competitors standing right next to you, also in the same situation – like ‘Alright how’s it going? What’s your name? Nice to meet you!’ The bright lights completely wash you out,
so you look, like slightly bronzed. How do you feel boys? Feel so good man, like honestly such a buzz Judges will look at the overall aesthetics.
You know so muscle composition, muscle balance and conditioning. So they like a small waist, wide back, capped
shoulders, nice good like, good sized legs, nice calves as well – a physique that really
flows So you’ll have like a minute’s worth of
music and you’ll have to do Almost like a dance, but it’s like showing off your
best poses. There’s like the double bicep, which is
an absolute classic. So you literally just show your biceps. Keeping the waist trim, wide back, capped delts. And you also have to hold your poses for a really long time, so it becomes very apparent when
someone hasn’t practiced holding their poses because they get tired and have to stop and reset,
and it doesn’t look good. I didn’t get nervous until I actually was
queuing up to go on the stage and then it kind of just dawned on me of like, I’m in
a tiny little bikini and I’m about to go on stage and do my poses. I kind of got on stage and was like *gasps* ‘Oh my God!’, everyone’s staring at me.
It was really really really nerve wracking, I was sweating, I was shaking but again, you
have to embrace it because you put yourself in that position. I was petrified, when I got on stage and stuff,
but then you enjoy it, and afterwards you see your stage photos and you get
to see your improvements you wanna make and now you’re just hooked. Eyes are all on you – so it’s then, you know, putting everything that you’ve done
for the last few years together for that one moment . Lubomba Munkuli! I felt empowered, to be honest with you, I
felt like— That was like the sign that my life has completely changed So it was like a ‘Okay I’ve made it’ kind
of thing. Now what do I do? And then afterwards, you have the best part,
the maddest cheat meal, pizza, donuts, ice cream, whatever you want! I went on a binge for a good week!
