    Advice for First Contest!!


    So I have decided to do a contest it will be a natural show!!

    My current stats:
    5'8 ~180lbs
    11-12% BF

    I posted pics that show just about every major muscle group so I know where to improve.

    My goals are to attain a balanced symmetry, whilst adding size, then about 12-14 weeks out of the show I will start dieting. My goal would be to be on stage 165-170lbs @ 4%!!

    Please do comment on where I need to improve!

    Also as a note: Those pictures were taken "un-pumped" Also I am currently supplementing CEE which might be the reason for my smooth apearance.

    As far as using anything questionable, I did start a Methyltren/TST which I ended after a week cause the headaches and lethargy were too much for me.


    Right now I am 7 months from the show, so plenty of time to imrpove.

    B-fast (like 930am)
    8 whole eggs; 8 whites,2 whole
    ~1/4 cup cooked oats (inwater, with cinnamon)
    apple

    Lunch (1230-1pm)
    3 medium turkey burgers (forman-ized)
    medium sweet potato (so good)

    Pre-workout(330pm)
    Protein shake
    Powerhouse bagel with F/F cream cheese

    During - I sipp on a BCAA/Luecine drink (lemon flavored goodness)

    Post-workout (round 530)
    Very big chicken breast (cooked on the grill pan w/a rub I recommend Mrs. Dash grilling blends )
    1 cup of brown rice w/ black beans

    Dinner (class until 745 so dinner is 830)
    chicken breast
    Steamed mixed veggies
    brown rice and beans

    Before bed (1230-1ish)
    Shake w/flax

    This was today. It really doesnt change, I try and keep it constant, other than substituing my protein sources.

    I did legs today so I ate carbs at night.

    On off days I will do cardio, and cut heavy carb intake after 6 or 7pm.

    I have decided to minimize my alcohol intake, in hopes of making the best gains possible. Maybe a beer on sundays during football.

    I usually make food in pretty big amounts, bc of clinicals, and or my work study I am out of the house for sometime 8+hours at a time. So I'll cook 1lb of turkey chili, with brown rice and beans mixed in, and snack on that through out the day as I really dont get a certain time to eat during clinicals.

    Yeah, It lasted all of 10 days. My BP was through the roof, and the headaches and lethargy made me drop it.

    But you had also done a cycle previous to that correct? Not judging, just to me natural is natural. Not natural at the moment. Whatever you decide to do good luck!

    I had done a cycle back when I had turned eighteen, it was halfassed 6wk test/eq cycle.

    I have talked to guys who natural comps and apparently they give out polygraphs and make you take em til you pass the one guy who I spoke to claimed he took it 5 times before they let him compete, he wasnt natural, yet he still competed. But they do however test the 1st place winner regardless, which even If I were to get first place there would be nothing for them to detect. I havent touched a prohormone/steroid since april.
