I have one competition under my belt. It was a learning experience to say the least. I made a ton of mistakes in regard to diet. I have a small frame and competed in the bantam weight class. I've got alot of work to do before I give it another go. I had so many people giving advice at the time.

You guys tell me what you think of this. I'll have a month off work in Dec. to do nothing but train and eat. I would like to start a log with before and after pics in a month or so. I can definatly use some criticism.

My (second and) last show was in Spring 1998. I was about 180. I told myself I would not compete again until I could step on stage at 200+.
Two years ago, I was almost ready, at my biggest and strongest ever. Then I snapped my rotator cuff. I am hopeful that I will compete again at the end of 2006.

You might not though if you never dieted down to see where you would place.

I think I have finally decided to give bodybuilding a go. I was set on going the fitness modeling route, but can still intertwine the two nicely. After I return from the O, gonna have the minor epigastric surgery repaired (outpatient and only 2 weeks off time) and start bulking up. Right now, I would venture to guess I am around 7-8%, 6 ft, 228 lbs. I would like to bulk to 240-245 and then cut down for the spring. I was working with Sagi Kalev on diet last spring, but am looking for some different alternatives as far as clean bulking, dieting down, etc... for this time around....

I was laid off from work in 96 got 8 weeks out of a show and got called back to work. It is really hard depending on what you do for a living. I tried to stay on target then but working construction at the time just could not keep diet right. I started losing too much weight and that ended that. I am looking at a couple of shows for june of 06.. Not sure if I am going to do a natural or not..it depends whether I decide to do a cycle[ never have done one ] I have plenty of size for a natural one. It would be a matter of conditioning.

Three years and forty pounds of muscle later, I'd like to compete. I'm way to undeveloped now, though, I've only been going at it for a little over a year.

oldskool .. edison is far from where i currently am in nyc .. are you in NJ?

Hey OldSchool, I'm from JC, but I have to go to Bayonne, NJ for a pretty kick ass gym called Mid-City gym. I believe it's sister location in NYC was one of the filming locations for Pumping Iron if you look at the credits. Most gyms in my area only have db's that go to 100, but Mid-City has 120's and I talked to the manager of the gym and he said they have higher db's somewhere else, but most trainers didn't know how to handle them. Plus I got a year for $300 bucks so it was in my price range and the environment is pretty cool, better than the freaking fitness gym I was at which was the only one I could afford. It was for yuppies, and they didn't even have a water cooler, they wanted you to buy there $3 dollar water!

I am limited for gyms in my area. I have one in walking distance..it is ok very small not alot of equip.. but it is not busy and I have 24 hour access. The other is a short drive very large , very busy,.. and don't get caught not cleaning when done,,even if you have not started to sweat. You spend more time cleaning equip. then training.. [not that I want to lay in someones sweat]
