    I will admit that I was disappointed in my overall effort. The tape measure did move in a positive way, but I did fall off the wagon a bit during the contest. The main reason I entered was for motivation, as I am gunning for a certain "shape" to be in for my wedding in Oct. I will be seeing friends & family from out of state, and the last time I saw them, I was a bloated 230 lbs (I'm under 210, now).

    I agree with the picture "poses" being the same in the before & after. I have also thought the same about posting a post-contest pic. Funny thing is, I've probably made as much difference in my appearance in the last week+ since taking my after pictures as I did during the contest. :bb2:
    You definitely lost some fat and Oct is still not here so keep it up man. It's amazing how long 8 weeks can be eh? I definitely had my cheats but sometimes it's better to stay sane then lose that extra lb. Good job on the contest you're my 2nd place pick right under that Amazing Basso guy, lol


  2. I think I'll post pictures every three months for kicks. It would be interesting to see the progression.

    I hope you do post them, Peterson. It's very hard to be objective about your own progress when you see yourself in the mirror daily. I'm taking shots every 2 - 3 weeks from 15 weeks out to the contest Oct 28th - on the days when I feel like I'm spinning my wheels it helps to be able to see the changes over time in photos.

  4. BF numbers would be a good start.
    Total mass and lean mass before...
    Total mass and lean mass after...

    -TT

  5. Questions:
    1. When does the contest end?
    2. You say we are supposed to vote according to how each individual performed toward their individual goals, where can we find these goals at?
    3. When is the deadline for voting?

    Thanks.
    Great job guys, it takes ballz to post your pics and take the heat (hopefully no meatheads will take any cheap shots). Keep up the great work, you're all winners!!!

    It's a nice thought, TT, but since we're spread all over the place and body fat measurement is so variable (calipers? electronic calipers? Tanita scale? BioAnalogics? BodPod? Hydrostatic weighing?) it doesn't seem practical.

    I use BioAnalogics, but more for trending than an absolute number. When I use it to calculate BMR, it's just a starting value and the caloric intake still needs tweaking.

  8. Thanks Jay.

  9. PSBJ,

    Those all sound like perfectly valid ways to measure bodyfat, except for the Tanita scales, which can give grossly inaccurate readings for people with athletic builds.

    Yes, the absolute numbers could be shifted, depending upon the method used, but in general, if the measurements are taken carefully, the numbers will be meaningful.

    -TT

    P.S. Would it be a valid point to say that since the photographs were all taken by different cameras, and under different lighting conditions, that they are meaningless?

    There are a couple of trainers at our gym whose ad pics are amazing looking - but the men themselves are not quite so amazing...

    I saw a study recently on body composition measurement by different methods and by trained and untrained operators - the values were all over the map.

    When it comes right down to it, it's damn difficult to compare physiques remotely. It's sometimes a struggle in prejudging at contests when people are side by side under the lights.

    In the case of this mini-contest, I do wish we'd all had photos of equal quality, it would have been fairer, and I suspect the polling would have been spread a lot more evenly. Maybe the practiced eyes of the judges (whom I do not know) will be able to filter out the confusion of the photos -- and maybe a future contest will give sample photos and suggest that the contestants match them to the best of their ability.

    But however it comes out, it gave us all an added measure of focus for the 8 weeks, and everyone in the thing seemed to profit by it to some extent. The comments posted were pretty positive and encouraging for everyone, and that kind of thing is really helpful.

    Competitive bodybuilding is a pretty ruthless sport. The judges and the audience don't care if you tore your rotator, lost your dog or had your truck stolen. They only care about how you look onstage. And don't look to your fellow competitors for support and encouragement, either (in many cases, at least). So boards like these and the helpful guys that lead them and support them are really invaluable - especially to those of us who are planning on putting our heads on the chopping block for the first time real soon.

    OK - so I drifted off the topic a bit...

    I'm thankful there are boards like this and guys like Jayhawk who take the trouble to pump us up and help us stay motivated. And while the process can probably be improved, as most can be, you have to start with something.

    Now it seems like I've said probably about 500 words too much - so I'll be REAL QUIET for a while. Thanks for reading.

  13. Good point Joey.

  14. Wow did you see the way Tattoo stretched his neck out and nipped me at the line, dang I should have seen that coming! Good job all and good luck, my only hope now, is that the judges will see the "Truth"

    you did a fantastic job Basso, but I had to stretch at the end, seeing as I made a comeback from my now bionic arm...

  16. In the most heterosexual way, you guys all look great, I was really impressed. I didnt get to vote, but it was too close to call anyway.
