  1. Physique allows us normal guys to compete. I am BBer at heart and anyone who knows me will tell ya that. But I will never be able to compete professionally in BBing. I am 6-2 nearly 6-3. I would have to put on 30lbs of mass at my show weight which is nearly impossible for me ever to do. with that said physique wise I am one of the bigger competitors. Each time I am on stage when photos are taken and I see them I am usually bigger all around more muscular than most. But the judges like it. I am 7 weeks out and cant wait. I took about 4 months to just gain a few more lbs of muscle, wanted a larger back so have been really concentrating on that. Everyone on my team is commenting lately on my back. I hope once I am down to weight it still looks good.

  2. Good work. It's going to be interesting to see what the judges are really looking for in physique. The head judge for my first comp is the President himself Jim Manion so I'll definitely be able to let everyone know what he is looking for and that goes for bodybuilding as well. A solid 6 pack and nice symmetry with muscles proportionate to the rest of the body is key for physique. Bodybuilding is mass with a shredded look

  3. Physique has a lot to do with stage presence. However, Physique guys are getting leaner and leaner. I think the reason for that is, they also want to see work ethic. Someone Lean and in shape and shows they are willing to put the time in.

    Last show, there were about 4 or 5 guys that really looked as if they have never been to a gym. They were lean to an extent but had no muscle tone. There were 40 contestents the first time on stage, when they cut down to 20 they were wondering why they were cut. To me it was a no brainer, they had no muscle, they were just naturally lean. When they did the cut down to 10 and I looked down the stage I saw 9 others that looked like they belonged there. Everyone was sub 5%, everyone had muscle, Everyone looked as if they could do a Photo shoot for any sup company. I like that its getting more competitive.

  6. Phil is the man but I'm still a Cutler fan at heart. Going to a great year.

    30 minutes of fasted cardio done by 6 am this morning. Just threw down a 4 egg white and 2 slices of p28 bread sandwich. Now time for work.

  7. P28 bread? What is this ? And I did one of 60 mins fasted cardio sessions followed by 10 egg whites and 1 cup oats . Extra water in both to help stay full, really works. And I'm not truly a Jay Cutler fan because he's just to bulky looking I do respect him though. Just not a huge fan.

  8. P28 bread is awesome. 28 grams of whey protein isolate and 24 grams of carbs in 2 slices. I eat that and Ezekiel bread to go with oats potatoes and rice as my carb sources. I'm on a 3 day carb cycle so each day is different.

  10. Found it online.

    Very nice, I have to look this up. I only eat Ezekiel now. explains why 4 eggs only. I was going to say I eat 10 whites each time I eat eggs.

  12. Anyone ever tried protein pancakes during a carb up day? I'm really debating throwing it in this week and see how my body reacts to it.

  13. I've never tried protein pancakes. I did have regular pancakes a week ago for my last cheat day. Now it's just a refeed day once a week but with no cheat meals just more potatoes rice oats and rice cakes. Thank god that day is tomorrow right after my morning fasted cardio.

  14. I haven't had a cheat meal in. Four months just carb up days while carb cycling.

    Thanks man. It's been hard but the end of the road is near just got to keep my eyes on the prize . 1st place teen class baby.

  17. Only 5 weeks to go. I hit a bump in the road being stressed out by things unrelated to this. Sushi with soy sauce definitely helped me tonight on my refeed day since i really haven't eaten in 2 days. Tomorrow I'm right back on the plan.

    The national teen champ from last yr is in the new flex magazine. He's going through a chest workout with chris cormier.

  18. Today was my carb-up day my first one with only oats and rice cakes and honestly I'm real excited to see how I look and feel tomorrow. It's keeping me much lighter than a bunch of yams/sweet potatoes. Will tell you guys about the overall results tomorrow and break it down for everyone a little better than. Keep moving forward guys.

  19. Saturday March 2, exactly five weeks away from my first bodybuilding contest. As I promised I would outline and give details of my last carb up day. Well to begin, I used only old fashion oats and lightly gluten free rice cakes besides my usually salads but that's just for fiber and vitamins. Overall I took in around 220 carbs yesterday on my carb up day after being at 50 for the two days before. I was feeling like I was looking really flat that Thursday but Friday is always my carb up. I had 4.5cups of oats (175 carbs) and 6 rice cakes (45 carbs about). I felt great all day , didn't get any carb bloat just felt awesome. Today I woke up and took some pictures like I do ever few days and WOW, it leaned me out better than anything else. I have never looked better even on a Zero carb day. My triceps were feathered same with legs. My body really loves the oats and rice cakes. This week was a huge jump towards learning the best results for "my" body. I can't take all the credit for this idea though, the great Jay Cutler takes about using only oats and rice cakes in ripped to shreds and I was interested so tried it. Along with other bodybuilders I study. I feel and look better than I have all prep so I will stick to oats and rice cakes for another three weeks at least and continue to update the AM family. Also adding extra water to egg whites and oats really helps keep you full and not nearly as hungry it's great. Got legs and shoulders today should be a great workout. Time to kill it this week boys!

  20. Keep it up Tank!!! Knock it out of the park like Dexter did at the Arnold. Just don't be like me and peak to early. I have to add carbs on my high carb cycle day and add back in creatine.

  21. Yeah I was worried about peaking early but now I think I'm right on phase to come in perfectly. I recently added a few supplements to my routine that should really enable my body to function at its best. And no not AAS haha waiting till three weeks out to add in some winny. If your curious about what I added in Id be willing be share.

  22. Daily supplements Fireball(4)-2x daily pre cardio, pre meal 7keto(2-3)-2x daily pre cardio, pre meal Sports multi(2)- with morning meal Recreate(3)-2x daily pre cardio, pre cardio Uva Uris(6)-3x daily with meals B-complex(4)-2 x daily morning meal, one other meal ZMA(3)- night empty stomach

    Those are currently what and how I am taking. I started most of these at five weeks out. The fat burners I started six weeks out just to give my cardio sessions a little kick. And now I have lowered my sodium levels trying to get some of that extra water I have purposely been holding onto just because.

  23. Are you going to take a diuretic? Uvi ursis is an ingredient is most otc diuretics.

  24. Yes I'm using it for that purpose now just a little to help with water weight then 10 days out start Xpel.

  25. Sounds good man. I'm actually using xpel starting 5 days out. I add some sodium this weekend since I'm really low. I'll be starting my sodium manipulation 15 days out
