5 weeks out from competition, about to start DermaTherm Target

Page 2 of 3 First 123 Last

  1. Here is my HONEST opinion --

    From your CURRENT DEVELOPMENT --- you would be suited more for BIKINI.

    However -- I would really see if you could enter both -- also the posing is vastly different for each and if your posing coach doesnt know -- I would start watching YOtUbe NOW!

    Here is a nice comparison -- Ask yourself -- which body do I currently relate to????

  2. I second Matt, your body shape looks like more bikini, I would compete there

    And that's not a bad thing either

  3. Matt-
    When I look at the pics I am reminded how far I am from my target . My frame is built for bikini, but my personality, for figure. I have a long way to go to be comparable to either of those pics. Thanks for continuing to send super badass example photos though... really good for reality check, and only a small battering to the pride .
    Doing a creatine load this week (20g x 5 days), which kinda makes me want to vomit most of the day.
    It's all good though. 3.5 weeks till show. More pics Friday.

    Matt is just good at pushing everyone to the next level. One of the reasons I am happy I can always ask him quick questions
    Just inject.

    You still look better than 99% of the population. It can be a beatdown to look at people in these forums and feel a little shaken, but you have to remember these people focus/profession is fitness too. Most of the population looks like crap, it's really dependent on who you set as your standard.

    Hit bikini this time and work towards a goal of fitness, constant goals lead to better results and more gratification. Good luck

    Never would intend to batter your pride or make you feel like you aren't ready.

    I just want you to place the best ---but at the end of the day it's not always about placement but conquering personal goals.

    But --- getting a first place or top 3 feels really good!

    Like another mentioned -- you compared to 99% of all other females blows most away but in this very subjective niche industry

    we are scrutinized in a high regard most folks will never comprehend. That's ok though, because being different than everyone else is a great thing.

    Why the creatine btw lol?????

  7. I know Matt! I appreciate the feedback- it's why I'm here!
    Trainers reco creatine to help get some mass - shovel as much energy into the muscle as poss.
    I'm burning through muscle as fast as I put it on..
    Thoughts?

    if your eating away muscle then I would look at your diet... protein should always be real high and lean.... five weeks out I was having a cheat meal... but not everyone can do that.... the body will not use protein to turn into fat... it will be used to repair your muscles... and as energy... fat... keeps you hormonal.... so I dunno what your fat content is like or what your dropping too...
    lean meats like turkey chicken and fish... fish is easy to put down and on top of it full of omegas which will also help with fat burning...

    Even then you'd be risking bloat if you're prone to that...

    Thats fine...it will just be a temporary replenishment of ATP and creatine phosphate levels in muscle which is exactly what you described. ENERGY.But it wont really add mass --- just temporary refill of energy in muscle.I would not do this too close to show since you risk bloating.Hard to put on ANY muscle why strict dieting and I would worry about putting muscle when show is over. Now you just need to be as lean as you can.-Matt

  15. In - best of luck!!

  16. Jess..

    It's Jess.
    I'm in last 2 wks now!! Still lifting heavy for one more week.
    A lot of firsts in these pics:
    Taken right after I woke up, so pretty flat.
    First time without using mirror to help posing.
    First time in competition suit (umm, need to find a place for the rest of my ass....)
    Definitely seeing improvement from derma therm- especially in side poses on glutes.
    Lots to work on over next 2 weeks...

  19. JESS! sorry about that name error!

    Looking nice -- very small waist circumference which is ideal for an illusion.

    I wish you were here in Portland I would send you directly to Andre Scott my posing coach --- noone is better than him for men, women you name it, he does it.

    You have more to display --its just a matter of getting the right mind muscle connection.. I know you have lats....

  20. Definite progress!

  21. Jessica,

    Please do me a favor and AFTER the show is all said and done --- please go talk to the judges and get feedback!!!

    Competitors need to do this and not rush out of the venue.

  22. How are things going?

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for checking in. I had a 22mile run this weekend- part of a challenge, involves carrying 40+ lb the whole way, sets of push ups, etc. not sure if that was a help or hindrance this late in the game.
    Last week! Started cutting water today, and diet blows
    I take last pics tomorrow night, then head to show Friday. Fingers crossed, muscles pumped
