Unless someone comes out of nowhere, you got my vote. (I'm not a judge though unfortunately.)
You should focus on snatching a local show title this year. Should not be a problem for you man.

I heard Viking is using cell tech Ban him from the competition for an unfair advantage. lol
On a serious note everyone looks like they are working hard, viking your looking sick bro.

Smeton. Looking good man! Legs look awesome, just no separation. I know you played a lot with the diet, but I think you could have done better. This isn't a knock by any means, don't take it that way.
Future Pilot. You are a massive guy, but did you diet at all for this? You would look so much larger if you just leaned out a bit.

Not at all bro Im glad to have your constructive critism.I could have been 15 lbs leaner. and a lot more muscular!(Injury nine months ago) I have to wait in till this injury is healed to start even training intensely and using creatine and beta alanine..then maybe just maybe Ill use super supplements.
as for flaws
Future diet down lean enough to see what were working with
myself (above) more upper body mass(the back thickness stayed from years of deadlifts) lose 15 lbs more of fat.
Viking you need to start doing local shows asap! big size and ripped!
JohnJessica, you have the ripped part down no doubt I don't know if your going for bigger or not at the same height as myself (6ft2 im 6ft2 barefooted and 6ft3-4 with shoes, most people youll be surprised are really 6ft2 measuring themselves with shoes off)I'd go for bigger. your choice though. maybe start competing in a local show at light heavyweight or play the size game and aim for 225 next.
Bassgod pretty good cuts man. maybe over time more mass if thats what you want
metroba you look good your on your way keep it up. take your time learning nutrition
p5sky you know how to pose! the black backround for more cuts and lighting worked in your advantage.
wow I guess that's it! I thought you were competing Texas?

I have been able to maintain my hours @ the gym, but NO - ZERO - cardio performed in several weeks, apart from long, sweaty nights working late. The past three nights, I've worked till 3AM at the club/bar, but haven't touched an oz. of alcohol. I've brought my 1.5 liter bottle of water, and drank that, and ONLY that. Calorie count has been lowered, and I was, truthfully, afraid of looking very flat today. But overall, I am very happy with what I was able to bring to the table. Consistency is the key, but as is the over all dedication.
I'm hoping to do my first local show this summer in Houston, TX. From all the positive feedback I've received here, I've only gotten more AMPED UP about moving on into bodybuilding/fitness! I'd love to get into fitness modeling, and I'm hoping I'll find a way to enter that sooner than later.

I like videos better than pictures. This is right after the pictures. I personally think i look leaner on video and that digital i have makes me look fatter.

thanks guys. I just closed all picture threads since 9 was the closing time. Twitch and a few others didn't get pictures up. I personally called drummaboyzl and told him to get his up...but whatever? Anyways guys everyone looks great! I am very pleased with how smoothly this went and that we did get quite a few guys to stick with it! I am already starting up on an idea for the next one so please if any of you are interested in helping me plan this let me know. FYI it is alot of work, but its all worth it when you see guys make progress.
Viking, PM me about that show maybe I will enter it with you. I am doing lonestar classic october 16th so i expect to see you there along with some of the other AM'ers in our area who said they would attend.
Thanks alot guys this has been great and I am very proud of everyone. To the guys giving critiques i really appreciate you keeping it polite and not introducing slander, slang, etc. Everyone here worked very hard and they deserve to hear comments in a constructive manor. I will be in contact with twitch and the judges to make sure they all have seen the threads.
Great job and thanks for working with twitch and I to make this a smooth run!

Great job everyone! definitely the Overall Winner is Viking, IMO. You are thick. I appreciate all the comments and criticisms, it is what helps to improve. I dont plan on competing but I do work hard to improve my size and symmetry. For those planning on comp in the future: GOOD LUCK!
I enjoyed this experience, kind of anti-climatic now that its over, like the day after graduation, prom, or a wedding. All of the prep and then . . . . . poof its over.
Thanks MentalTwitch and TexasLifter for organizing this and thanks to all of the sponsors.
