UKBFF 2013 British Championships
Last weekend saw over 100 competitors take to the stage to compete in UKBFF 2013 British Finals. In among these impressive physiques was Bodybuilding Warehouse sponsored athlete Nathan Robinson. Since Nathan earned his place in the 2013 British Championships mens BB under 80kg we have tracked his training, his nutrition and his perseverance to return to the 2013 UKBFF stage in the greatest condition of his life. His journey to the stage showed the sacrifices that competitors make to compete in such a gruelling sport and detailed the mental strength necessary to get him through tough training sessions and those last few weeks of intense dieting. If you have a read of the recent articles posted by Nathan, you will see that there aren’t many athletes who need to apply themselves in such a strict manner both on and off season.
Nathans passion for competing was ignited when he won the Junior under 21’s class at the East of England Championships in Leicester back in 2005. Since that first win at the age of 20, Nathan competed in numerous shows and in 2010 he was crowned the UKBFF British champion in the under 80kg class. Such a momentous win at the age of 24 made him one of the youngest male British Champions in history. This wasn’t a bad achievement for the boy who first stepped into a bodybuilding gym at the age of 18 with modest ambitions of size and a six pack!
In this year’s under UKBFF 80kg class, the competition was fierce and all 19 competitors who stepped onto the stage had amazing size and condition. With 19 competitors, the class was definitely bigger than usual and made for some tough judging. Nathans hard work and relentless training and dieting paid off as he placed second in one of the toughest categories of the day. He narrowly missed the top spot to Cliff Benton but he still looked in unreal condition.
