002: Get Stage Lean: Behind the Scenes of a Bodybuilder’s Cutting Phase with Hali Lawrence
Show Notes

“The community of people that do this are all like-minded. And we all actually genuinely want the best for everyone.” —Hali Lawrence

Pushing through plateaus is tough, but it's what truly separates the contenders from the pretenders. It's easy to keep training hard when you're seeing results, but when things slow down it takes real guts to stick with it. Only the bodybuilders willing to push just a little more each session, even on those days they aren't feeling it, will be the ones standing on stage on show day. 

This episode features an interview with Kayleigh Lawrence. From her strict macros, meticulous meal prep, and hours spent on the treadmill to shred every last ounce of fat, Kayleigh’s story sheds light on the true grit and determination bodybuilders must possess in these grueling final weeks. 

Listen in as Kayleigh discusses her journey to bodybuilding as a single mom, the challenges of preparing for a show as a first-time competitor, overcoming nerves and stage fright, prepping for a show while balancing family life, getting stage ready in 20 weeks of prep, finding support in the bodybuilding community, as well as her competition plans in the coming months.
