    Let me know on what I should work on more. I have my opinions, but I'd like to hear from you guys.
    Back is looking sick and you've developed nice quad separation. Good job!

    Those are tough for most I think but you're looking proportionate that's most important

  4. Ok cool! Thanks!

  5. My daily log for Dec. 10: Today went pretty great! I woke up ate my first meal and took my new bought Orange Triad. I watched some motivational vids before I lifted, and I was pretty pumped for the most part. Today I did Legs. I split them again doing Quads/ Calves in AM, and Hamis/ Abs in the PM. I was planning to do 15min H.I.T. After my 2nd session, but just warming up walking before I tried to run I was cramping in my quads. I Figured it was fine to just do cardio tomorrow after my workout. I got my Endurance BCAA's from Formutech nutrition just after I got home from my 1st lifting session. I took some white flood prior to lifting quads and I was straight gone. My mind was focused on one thing...Train Hard, Don't Give Up! I busted my butt during quads. I finished the workout by killing my calves as well. After the workout I took a post workout I made out of Creatine Monohydrate, Aminos, Glutamine, and a different BCAA product. I Went to work after and felt great. I got off around 5:30, and left work for the gym once more. I hit my hamis hard, I had good contractions and stretches throughout the 2nd session. After I took ENDURANCE, OMG WOW. It beats the hell out of my other BCAA supp. It tasted delicious! Watermelon was the flavor. Instantly I was feeling better than when I started. So far Day 1 of Endurance was a good run. Now I'm just waiting til I get my other product from Formutech, and I will log about it on this thread. I'm feeling better and better everyday, I'm confident, I'm going to be shredded this contest, and I'm going to win! I'm going all in for the win and I'm pushing my limits to the max!

    Well, not always at least. Size obviously counts but proportion, preparation and posing are HUGE

  11. Well your judged on size, symmetry, conditioning and posing and believe it or not color. That's how it is in the IFPA pro ranks that I know.

  16. I would suggest you start planning your posing routine if you have not already. Focus on the following:
    1. Your legs, make sure you highlight them and find the poses that show them off the most. They are you strength and should be displayed as such.
    2. Be honest and pick you weakest(relatively) bodyparts and hit those shots the least. No point displaying your least developed parts more than needed.
    3. Practice, practice, practice, after 20 mins of posing you would be surprised how hard it is to hold your stomach in when you are gasping for air.
    4. Now your routine forwards and backwards. Practicing in front of a mirror is ok at first but there will not be one at the show so eventually you want to videotape your practice to make sure you are hitting the shots right. This is something that you never think of but I know I am used to flexing in a mirror and when I close my eyes and do say a FDB and then open my eyes I am not hitting the pose as well as I do when I can see it and make adjustments on the fly. Basically get used to posing blind.
    5. You will need to be tanner than you think. Darker the better.
    6. Bring multiple copies of your posing music in case the machine eats it, you loose one or and asteroid hits your first copy. Also if they require tapes(not sure if anyone still uses these) makes sure they are cued up.

    Good luck.

    My Rest periods are about 30-60secs, on heavy compound lifts I go no more than 90secs. Sometimes 2mins if necessary.

    Thanks man! I've been working on my mandatory's mostly right now just making sure I hit those right. In my pics you can see I'm trying, I know I need improvement but like you said practice, practice, practice! As for my routine I have my song picked out, and a plan for it just need to run it through and practice that. How often would you suggest to practice? Also what is a good tanning product for my skin color? I look white in my pics, but i'm more like a light brown tone.

  19. Well I would be tanning at least twice a week if it were me. As far as competition tan products I have no experience with them, try to talk to guys who have competed many times.

    I could tan twice a week my complex has free tanning! I'll look around for some tanning products.

  21. Ya read reviews and perhaps test them on a small area of skin weeks in advance to get an idea of what they make your skin look like.

    Ok I'll give it a shot! Thanks. This Prep is awesome!

  23. I recommend Jan Tana Competition color. In fact, I'd get the kit with an extra bottle or 2 of the moisturizer and exfoliant. Follow directions to the "T". I try to tan prior it helps my skin. I get very dark and when I do Jan Tana I always 2-3 coats Friday (Jan Tana dries faster than pro tan) and another Saturday. BE DARK! I usually have VERY VERY good color. In fact, I usually hit up a salon near my house and they spray me with 2-3 coats when I can get there on Thursday. Then Friday I only have to do 1 coat and Saturday I touch up, but if I can't get there, I do 3-4 coats of Jan Tana.

  24. Jan Tana is good, but most important is the person applying it. I like to get professionally sprayed its worth the money to have a good spray.

    I too tan befre a show, I will get you the name of the lotion I use, it has a bronzer. Keep your skin moist it helps the spray tan.

  25. My Daily Log for Dec. 11: Todays lift was hardcore! CHEST! I woke up at 4AM to get ready for the big day. I woke up ate brealfast then watched and read some motivational quotes, and youtube vids. I was using some mental exercise to get myself in the game prior to lifting. I was pumped before going, I just wanted to go in do work and handle business. First off I walked into the locker room and was zoning. I took my White Flood and was ready to roll! I warmed up on the treadmill for 5min to get my focus at its max. I then started the lift and from start to finish it was nothing but hardwork, dedication, commitment, and heart! I trained with my partner Nick who is pushing me to my limit everytime we lift. We both did great! I felt great after the workout. I took my post workout and waited an hour before my next meal. During work I was sipping on ENDURANCE BCAA's once again I can't say anything negative about this product, It's awesome. It kept me alive during work that's for sure.
    Lift for today:
    Incline Smith Machine Press: 5x8-12
    Superset Incline Flyes/ Incline DB 4x8-12
    Flat DB Press 4x8-12
    Decline Hammer Press 4x8-12
    Low Crossover 4x8-12
    High Crossover 4x8-12

    Meals:
    1: 8 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, 1 c oats, 1 green tea.
    2: 8oz tilapia, 1 c rice.
    3: 2Tbs almond butter, 1 c coco milk.
    4: 8oz chicken breast, 1 c rice.
    5: 8oz tilapia, 100g yams.
    6: 8oz chicken breast, 100g sweet potatoes.

    Train Insane Or Remain The Same!
    Back tomorrow!
