Hi Everyone! I have been browsing the boards trying to figure this out on my own and finally conceded that I need some help. Thankfully you are all here!
I am a 38 YO female figure competitor. I competed in 3 shows in 2011, came off my last show in May, took 1 week off and went to a building phase. I place well in symmetry and presentation, but always lose to some girl with bigger shoulders and back. I missed out on a pro card placing b/c the girl had slightly bigger/rounder shoulders!!! So the last 6 months I have spent trying to build.
I did complete a very heavy lifting phase over the summer that IMO did me well, but I had a tough time recovering from these workouts and def taxed my CNS. IMO, I have a difficult time adding mass/size. (trying to figure out how to attach pics) Progressive Overload schemes seem to treat me well.
I have used what I feel is every trick in the book, Creatine Mono, KRe-Akalyn, SciVation Xtend, also tried Creatine EE, BCAA's, Glutamine, Jack'D3d, ZMA, protein, protein, protein. casien, whey, - I carb cycle following a 50/30/20 split using high, med and low days.
The plan was to compete again this spring but I have since decided I need more size and might be better to wait towards summer to start cutting.
So here I am... I started my hghup today but realize I prob need to stack it. I read one of Rosie's e-books and some of her posts so I am thinking I don't need to stack this with a test booster? but maybe something that inhibits estro. Or did I misunderstand? I am still going to use my other supps. any suggestions?
Sorry for the long post; just trying to give a background. Thanks in advance for the help!
