April 7th of '07 here in Michigan. I gotta get bigger!! ahaha. My first and last show I was 193.4 when I stepped on stage. That was June 10th. Now August 31st I am 229.5. I hope to step on stage at 205+ and be more conditioned than last time! What about you Ripped? When is your next event?

I am a light heavy. I will be coming in at 192 to 194 this next contest. Hope by next year I will hit close to right at 198. I am only 5'7" so I hopefully I will look pretty thick by then. May be when I growup I can become a heavy weight and play with the big boys. Highlyl doubt it...I would be right back at the low end side of the heavies which would kill me. I like sticking to the high light heavies. Guess we will have to wait and see what kind of bulker I can do this winter.
I will have to get some pics up...never posted any before so I will have to go through some of my contest pics and make sure I get a good one..

Right now I'm trying to keep lean abit as I gain quality muscle.. Tired of gettin' fat and smooth and having to diet for months before the actual contest cut-up.. PDI plans to start an amateur division, I may see what they do before I gamble on a local show just to get beat by a vascular broomstick..
09-01-2006, 12:53 PM
Pete, as big as you are man you would have no freaken worries man. Are you planning on coming up to at least see the NH show. VPI?
09-01-2006, 01:02 PM
If I compete now I'd end up top of the middleweights, hence my vascular broomstick crack.. If I can't compete at least 190lbs dry and full, no need for me to even consider it.. It's possible I may pop in to NH for the prejudging, we'll see..

I'm doing my first show next March here in AZ. It's a natural NPC show and I'll be competing in the teen division and then the novice of whatever weight class I come in at. I've never done this before so we still don't know what class I'll come in at...we'll see.

Hey everyone, I'm doing my first NPC show this October 28th here in Las Vegas. It is a pretty big show, Jay Cutler is the guest poser. I'm jumping into the light heavys at (hopefully) around 190-195lbs. Here are some pics of me about a week ago. They were done with no pump and in the early morning of my last very low carb day (that is when I like to do pics, so I can compare them when I'm in the same carb state). I just started my cardio this week and have been dieting for about a month now. I'm down to about 6% body fat already. I know I need alot of work, but I should do pretty well.

Big Bill, man you should do just fine, your back is wide as it can be. Overall yuor body comp is great for this far out. Keep up the hard work keep us all up to date
09-04-2006, 12:51 PM
Thanks guys. I feel pretty confident about this show, I know two of the judges and they say that I'm going to go great. I've been training natural for the past year so I'm not as big as I use to be (I really see it in my triceps... they are really sucking right now), but overall symmetry and hardness is there. So I might not be the biggest guy in my class, but I should be one of the hardest and symmetrical on stage. I'll keep posting my new pics that I do every few weeks to show my progress.

Thanks a lot! I'll keep you guys up with my progress and let you know how it's going, but as of right now it's goin really well.Originally Posted by Ripped1

Wow Big Bill - you are 2 months out at 6% - I am just hitting that now, with a show in a week - you are in a great position to get ripped to pieces - best of luck to you
09-08-2006, 04:06 PM
I just took my b.f.% this morning and it said that I was down to 4.3%. Now I don't think I'm really that low because I did the front side measurements only (the j-p method). When my wife gets home I'll have her check my back measurements (durin method) and take the difference of the two. But still in all, I'm dropping every day and I just began my cardio a few weeks ago. Also, I'm not yet on my cutting "supplements" yet, just a few fat burners. Next week I'll be 6 weeks out and then it is on. No cheat meals at all, no dairy or fruit, 5x a week cardio, etc. I'll keep you all posted on my progress and new pics as I take them.

HEY Ripped1 I am doing my DEC.9th show feeling like I am going to win it all. Well at least I am approaching it that way. I have been in the background, learning, and gained some mass. As last time I steped on stage at 200lbs I will be on stage at 220-225 ripped to the bone brother! Got my diet right, got the right coach, and NOW I GOT WITH THE RIGHT COMPANY that supports research, and innovation, so the sky is the limit!

apowerz, good to hear you are getting back on stage man. I look forward to seeing you a second time around. You will learn so much more and not have to second guess your self this time. That is good to hear man. Look forward to seeing the pics. You still have plenty of time to put on some mass before cutting down. Are you sticking to a more basic diet this time?
09-08-2006, 05:23 PM
Way to go Apowerz! That is a huge jump in less than a year! My june show I was 193.4 on stage. This coming April I know I will be at least 205 and way more shredded
It awesome to hear of other peoples progress/experience...makes us know we are not the only ones sacrificing things to be the best that we can be :bb2:

Bigbill Sounds like you do the carb up meal, then go without for a few days? What BF% are you shooting for? I have done that with Beverly International, where you have one big carb meal every 3 days, then take straberries and shakes, and chicken / hamberger, and salads the rest of the time. this time around for me it s a slow carb depelete - white fish for every meal, and just cut more carbs down. Starting to really suffer in the evenings with a week to go - can't wait to start carbing up Wednesday. Till then, evening cardio is tough. You gotta love the results - What do you eat just before prejudging? I am thinking of Arginine, Lysine (for pump) and for vascularity -- I am thinking of Dates (pitted). In the past - I ate junk and gained 3 lbs during the day and looked bad for the night show - would appreciate some guidance. Take care

If APowerz dont get richj, he will at least take 1st with all of his confidence. You seem way more relaxed than you did earlier this year.
