2 Days Out ~ 2 Back Poses

  1. 2 Days Out ~ 2 Back Poses






    I'll save the insane vascularity I have in the front for the show I still have a little tweaking to do on my rear posing because sometimes my glutes show the striations, and sometimes they don't depending on the way my feet/legs are positioned. That, and I took pictures in a new place and the lighting wasn't the best. But still, they've come a long way and I couldn't be happier with my progress

    I'm more excited than I could ever explain in words at this point!

    No clue...I don't bother with those. The judges never ask me what my BF% is because it really doesn't mean anything. I can claim to be any BF% I want since there is no real accurate way to measure it other than dissection. The only time I use BF% numbers is when I am measuring the change. But when I do, I never focus on the number that whatever method I choose spits out at me...because it's meaningless. The key is to be consistent in how you are measuring it and track the change so it can take into account the % of error that comes along with it. Then the BF% number actually has some value that you can utilize.

    So, other than StriatedGlutes%...I dunno

    I was leading you into that lol

    Nothing I do is from the standard cookie-cutter advice most contest prep gurus will spit out to their clients. But then again, that's why I look the way I do, and 90% of the guys I compete against that follow that nonsense come "holding water" or whatever excuse they come up with.

    I outline every detail in my journal of exactly what I do every day...even during peak week It's in the Workout Logs section...

  16. With how low your lats attach your waist looks extremely tiny. That 2nd pic, to me.... defines v-taper.

  17. I see a Pro Card in you wallet after tonight. Go for it, Tommy.

  18. man you look great - good upper and lower back definition!! Great job.

  21. Mate, you look dry as a bone as well as ready to win another comp!

    It's good that you don't follow 'the herd' in terms of contest prep methodology, since if you eat, train & prepare like everyone, you'll look like everyone, right?

  22. Lookin great man,

    height & weight?

  23. Grats on the win man. You made that one easy for the judges. Scillio.. or however you spell it had lots of mass up top but no cuts in his legs, he looked slightly retarded always doing the most muscular pose for the camera back stage lol.

    what qualifications does Layne Norton's wife have to be a judge? never new she was even into BB. I'm suprised they let her judge considering she is his wife. I'm sure she is not biased but you'd figure they wouldn't take the chance.

  24. Looking fantastic man.

  25. Oh wow...thanks for the comments guys! I just got back to this thread since the last time I came into this section (been sticking mostly to the Scivation and USP Labs forums on here), and saw some new comments since the show, so I appreciate that! The show went well. I ended up winning the overall and the pro card So it was a victory all the way through. Here are some pics taken in between prejudging and finals at the contest:
