    Well, what tanning product do you recommend and I'm 5 months out right now so should I start cutting or continue mass building for now.
    Currently I am at 9.4% body fat .

    Video tape yourself and give yourself 4-6 weeks to rehearse

    It's not a bad idea to start with ProTan or Jan Tana. Through competing in numerous shows, you may find yourself trying different products and protocols in finding what works best for you. My first show I did 5-6 coats of ProTan because about that many are needed to get dark enough. Even than, I felt I could be a bit darker without blurring my lines. So, what I found to work pretty well for me has been several coats of ProTan to attain a nice base and then 2-3 coats of JanTana...2 Friday and 1 Saturday morning.

    If you indeed are 9.4% bf, you could find yourself adding calories for another 3-5weeks to establish a higher set/start point. From there is then where you would start dieting down from. However, you should always give yourself more time than less to get shredded to make up for any obstacles you may encounter along the way.

    Being your first show, do your best to enjoy the ride, take notes on what works and doesn't work and step on stage in the best shape of your life!

    After years of obesity I began a transformation last March. Dropped 90 pounds so far and will be completing my life long dream of taking the stage. Will be competing April 13 at the INBF Northeast America Bodybuilding and Figure Championship (men's novice bodybuilding).
