This month marks our fourth UFE athlete profile wherein we feature the remarkable achievements of some of our outstanding male and female fitness competitors. Previous installments featured Kimberly Fry, Adam Wilks and Julie Adamson, all UFE Pro athletes with fascinating, aspirational backgrounds. In this installment, we’ll take a trip south of the border and introduce you to Men’s Double Pro Matthew Good, a UFE World Champion from the United States and husband to Kelly Good, a UFE World Champion in her own right.
INTRODUCTION This month’s installment of Muscles features the widest muscle group in your body: the back. In fact, only your glutes muscle group is bigger by volume. Although your back takes a secondary role in terms of first impressions, when you get up on stage you’d better be prepared to line up your lats (and other back muscles) and let ‘em loose. The audience – and judges with their discerning eyes – will be closely scrutinizing your upper body from the posterior position to the extent that the size and definition of your back can easily influence your result.
Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) is pleased to bring to you the third in our four-part series on specialty training techniques. These are a series of workout protocols that deviate from the norm to produce exceptional results by stimulating your muscles in unconventional ways such that they don’t adapt and stagnate. Our first two installments discussed specialty techniques centered on leveraging exercises, sets, reps and rest periods for the purpose of muscle building. This month, it’s all about the fat burning.

UFE is proud to present the third in our ongoing series of athlete profiles, in which we share the unique stories of a few chosen exceptional competitors. Our first two installments featured UFE Pros Kimberly Fry and Adam Wilks, and in this third profile we return to the women with an account of the story of UFE Pro Julie Adamson.
To date, we’ve presented to you specialized workouts to help you develop exemplary biceps and a chest that’s stage-worthy. This month, we’re going to look at another of the relatively smaller muscle groups, but one that is absolutely critical to the manner in which you project yourself to the judges and audience: your shoulders.

In this month’s installment, we’re going to take a look at building an impressive pair of biceps muscle groups that will make you stand out from your competition.
Last month in this section of the Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) website, we profiled Dual Pro Kimberly Fry (Figure and Glamour).

Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) is pleased to present the second in our four-part series on specialty training techniques. These innovative training protocols serve as ways to break from the norm of boring, same-old exercises using traditional rep schemes and overused four-day or weekly splits. Specialty techniques infuse the elements of creativity and innovation to give you a mental spark, while delivering consistent gains leading to improved results. In turn, you should be able to enter a competition with an extra edge over your fellow athletes.
Many aspiring fitness athletes irrationally fear that this journey is something one has to undertake all by oneself.

This rationalizing can go on and on, but we’re here to guide you with a clear understanding that you’re not alone in this endeavor – and if others can do it, absolutely you can too! Let’s put the commitment decision into proper perspective.
