  1. who competes/plans on competing within next year or so


    i finished my first show in june and learned a TON from it, i'm curious who else on the board competes or plans on competing in the relatively near future


  2. define relatively near future. i'll probably be game in about 2 years. now, that i've got my diet down, the possibilities are endless.

    Every year I tell myself that this is the year but I always feel like I don't have enough size to dominate. Plus I don't know how to find out about shows in my area....Hey Glen PM me bro as I know we are in similar areas....I am from Dirty Jersey!

  5. Looking for June 07

  6. Thinking about it in another year or so...

  7. Lookin at it 2 years down the road, so summer of 07...

  8. I'm looking to comepte in the NPC NY Metropolitan Bodybuilding competition in MArch of 2006.

    Going to start dieting down in late November (the day after Thanksgiving). Yes, that means I'll be dieting during Christmas. No I won't be eating dessert Christmas Day. Sounds harsh, I know, but it's my first competition, and I can't go into it half-assed.

  9. I'm considering it in the next couple of years. I need to lose the fat first to assess where I'm at

  10. I may do it one day if I decide that dieting for 12 weeks ain't that bad.

    It sucks until you get down around 10-12% and you start seeing the definition come through

  12. I did my first contest last year. Started prepping for one this year, but it just wasn't in the cards. Maybe next year.

  13. I plan on competing next fall (2006). Glenihan, how tall are you and what was your competition weight? Just curious, it looks like we have the same body type.

  14. I have, do, and will, done for this year though, next one will probably be may or june 06.

  15. Guys at my gym always ask me if I compete. I just might give myself a local trophy before my 40th bday... Well at 5'11" I think I'd have to be a good 225 ripped to get anywhere.................

    In the meantime, the arcade here will do.

    5'8 176lbs middleweight .. although i ****ed up carbed up a bit too soon and weighed in at 179 making me a ****ty light heavyweight lol

    i'm glad to see so many people aspiring to compete and actual competitors as well

    honestly though for your first show i think you should diet for 16 weeks as opposed to 12 just to give yourself enough time

    i can't wait to see beelze all oiled up with a deep tan in a posing suit with all those tattoos haha

    don't be gay glen, don't be gay.

  19. i'll try my damnedest



    lol

  20. I have thought about it quite a bit, but its only going to work probably whenever I get over this need for gaining as much strength as possible, I would just hate not being able to move as much weight as I used to. I know the diet part would suck, but I really dont think I would mind it too bad, for one I really dont enjoy eating, and even the diet I am eating now trying to bulk some is extremely tasteless and bland lol. I am definately considering it though, just need to bring my calves up a scoche When I decide to do it, it will be with Bobo for sure.

    It took me forever to get the mental strength to start cutting. It really hasnt been that much of a struggle - but then again its taken me quite a bit longer than 16 weeks to get where I am and Im by no means cut yet.

    Started in March at 240 lbs and ~17.5%BF, right now Im about 223 and in the high 11's. I'm aiming to hit around 8-9% by the end of November, and that will make it a 36 week cut! I basically cleaned up my diet A LOT, eat ~500 cals below maitenence and every 4 days or so I eat a little above maitenence. 3-5 sessions of 20-30 minute cardio per week. Only supps other than a multi are UniLiver, CissusRX and Camphobolic.

    By taking it *real* slow Im actually up in weight in nearly all my exercises. Not by too much - but Im slowly gaining strength while consistently losing fat so Im pretty pleased

    HIGHLY recommend reading the 'Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle' E-Book by Tom Venuto. A lot of the stuff in there you'll already know, but there's a ton of good advice in there about conditioning your body to burn fat while retaining the maximum amount of LBM.

    The misconception 'You can't cut naturally without losing muscle and strength' is a myth.

    Thanks Glenihan, that is great motivation. I thought I was a bit light this summer to compete 6 ft. 210 @ about 6% bf.. It appears I should quit being a *****, start practicing poses and just do it.

  23. definitely man .. to be perfectly honest you probably are a bit light .. but so was i .. who cares its a great experience and fun as hell .. after you dropped all your water i'm sure you would be under 198 and you'd be at the top of the light heavies .. perfect my man

    so sack it up and quit being a little bitch

  24. I still have a winter of muscle growth but I need to stop procastinating...

    Glenihan how are the weight classes set up? For instance - if you come in at 205 does that put you in a 'heavyweight' class where you have to compete against a guy who is 240?

    Also, even as an amateur do you get time on stage to do a solo posing routine, and can you choose your own music?

  26. 225 and over, I believe, is super heavies.

    i'm not sure about bantam and light weights but

    middleweight 146lbs (i think) - 176.25
    light heavies 176.5 - 198.25
    heavies 198.5 - 225.25
    super heavies 225.5 and up

    obviously you want to try to be in the top of your weight class, but for a first show don't even worry about what you weigh in at because you have NO idea how your carbing up and water dropping will go and to try to guess is assanine ... after doing it just once you will have a MUCH better idea of how to set things up for your next show


    and yes shows are set up with prejudging, where there are typically 2-3 "rounds" of quarter turns and mandatory poses ... this is where the actual judging is done .. then the night show and each competitor will typically get a 1 minute routine (at a local show) and he gets to choose his own music and routine

    bantam is up to 143(and change)
    lightweight cuts off at 154 (and change)



    i'm trying to move up to light-heavy. best case scenerio for that would be fall 2006.

  29. thanks for clearing that up kyfra .. i never paid attention to anything less than the max for middleweights

    what do you weigh during your offseason kyfra?
