1ST SET WEIDER ATHLETES WEIGH IN WILLIAM BONAC HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS? In our home we celebrate Christmas—which in the Netherlands is as picturesque as it sounds. Holiday season here is more about spending time with family and loved ones than exchanging gifts, but we do that, too. 22 FLEX | JANUARY 2018 WHAT IS YOUR STRATEGY FOR DEALING WITH THE EFFECTS OF TRAVEL ON THE BODY (DEHYDRATION, TRAVEL FATIGUE), ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CONTEST YOU ARE FLYING TO COMPETE IN IS THE OLYMPIA? I always make sure I drink enough water, and I also schedule it so I fly out at least three to four days before show day so I have enough time to get my shape together. WAS THERE SOMETHING YOU SAW OR EXPERIENCED IN 2017 THAT GAVE YOU EXTRA MOTIVATION TO COMPETE? No. My drive and inspiration all come from my son and family.
