    My abs popped pretty good with no drug intervention. I did a pre contest cycle, but no injectables, and nothing purchased illegally. I am us navy. I only used natural diuretics, like dandelion and uva ursi, etc.

    I have not won a trophy yet in body building. Only powerlifting and strongman. Nothing really big though. I still love it, and wont quit.

    Well I didn't win it, I got 2nd out of 11 at a national qualifier but still very good none the less. I was for sure pumped and full, but I DID find out how VERY fast my body gets flat if i'm not consuming sugars every few minutes haha. Keeping that pump was quite difficult due to schedule changes. I was afraid of spilling over, and also afraid of flattening out at the same time. I also did use aldactone(which i had a script for from a while back.) I know that helped a lot.

    Man, I feel amazing on stage having people applauding and cheering for you and they don't even know you. I'm trying my hardest to qualify for nationals this time around, and THAT would for sure make it all worth while. My trophy was metal, so maybe that helps? lol i dunno. Even without qualifying, it's still such a fun experience and the total body transformation is amazing. I dunno how anyone could not like it. Yes, dieting so strictly does suck, but still...

    Therein you have pointed out the innate problem with bodybuilding. We don't mind the hard work, the sweat drenched toils, the multiple meals a day, the constant cooking, even the incessant cardio....... but the FOOD, the taste bud embargo we endure is what pushes our brains into the outer limits of sanity.

    LOL, exactly. One can only eat plain canned tuna or plain chicken breast for only so long before losing one's mind

    Nasser El Sonbaty and I were discussing this. He said Dieting is hell on earth.

    Nuff said, but I still love it.
