Could I compete?
So...thinking of competing sometime next year just for fun. What do I need to focus on? Do I have a chance?
My sister took the pics, and was not comfortable with me in my skivvies, so hence no pants off pics (sorry).
This is how I look on a daily basis...no special cutting. How much more fat should I lose? What % do you estimate I am at now?

You've obviously got size but you've also got a few weak points. We also would need to see your legs.
But, of course you could compete! No one is perfect.

I do heavy lat pull downs once a week (Monday on bench day). I use three different bars/grips. Wide palms forward, Wide with palms in, and narrow palms in. I only do each grip once a week...so three week rotation
225 x 10
250 x 8
275 x 8
300 x 6 to 8 (two sets at this weight)
I also do 50 pullups every M, W in 4 sets
On Friday I do weighted pullups:
bodyweight x 15
+25 lbs x 10
+35 lbs x 10
+45 lbs x 8 to 10
+55 lbs x 8 to 10
bodyweight to failure (15 to 20)
Thats it for lats...

i dont really see any weak points provided you have legs. Id say you are at 10% probably have to drop 10lbs or so. Im not expert on getting comp ready by all means just estimating. Back is thick bro! You kinda prove the point on the importance of pullups for back lats.

you have good potential. I am not sure what your diet is like but if you want to compete that is the hardest thing about being a body builder i think. as far as things for you to work on i would say you need to fill in and cap off your delts. fill in the rear delts to tie your shgoulders in with your back. also get your waist small looks like you have potential for a distended stomach.

Im an NPC Judge, and I critique literally hundreds of bodybuilders and figure gals every year....In all honesty, I wouldnt even begin to tell you that you have a good or bad physique because even though the pics are great from an artistic standpoint, they are worthless from a bodybuilding standpoint....for instance, I cant tell where your lat insertions are to determine what type of taper you have....(makes a huge difference when standing "relaxed" in the front pose) I cant tell what your shoulder to waist ratio looks like.....I cant tell much about your arms because all the angles are deceiving, and obviously your legs are a mystery.
Having said that, I DO think you could bring a nice package to the stage, provided you dial it all in....Good Luck if you do.

Hey, I'm still here guys!
Thanks for the comments. I have still been working hard. I have been trying to get my rear delts up some...and am making some good progress on it.
DRZjoint - what do you mean by your comment about the distended stomach? I have to admit the pics were taken after a night of drinking...so that might have something to do with that???
I'm still working on getting some leg pics up. I am going to see my sister again mid March, and will see if I can convince her to take some better pics. Besides legs, what are some good poses you would like to see? I have NO IDEA!
How do I "get my waist small"?
Any other suggestions for my next round of pics?
