    One week away, I wanted to thank you guys for all the help


    I just wanted to thank you guys for all the help I really had all but decided not to compete until I talked to you guys on here and got advice to keep going and now hopefully I can do well.

    Thanks again everyone, these are pics from 1 week out on the low carb part of my peak week.

    I don't know a whole ton about competing but does vascularity play a role in anything?

    Do a certain extent, as it does give you and illusion of being a lil bigger and leaner.

    thanks man, I asked this before but I didn't get on for awhile, in this show its a nga show, I am signed up for the novice, I talked to the promoter and he said that there are no weight limits in the novice class its just open for anyone who enters, would I be better to do the novice still, or would you say go and be the heaviest person in the lightweight class?

    Thanks for all the responses man you have helped me alot.

    When you can take someone's pulse from the middle of their left or right trap, you know the vascularity is out of this world. Very Gaspari I must say.

    looking nice! u got some crazy veins and lines going on man! Of course vascularity counts. To me, it doesn't matter of placing and who beat who. It matters that u made it to step on the stage or not. All the competitiors who are on stage, they are all champions. Really.
