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...

Jess , you are looking pretty good hard work you have been putting into this, keep it up!>SNS-Glycophase<Serious Nutrition Solutions Rep

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....

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.

Hey guys,Originally Posted by MattPorter
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

Just bought a bunch of post comp sugars =)

Not sure why they tapered your water so harshly ....
But PLEASE do not go overboard on post contest binging as its the prime time to store fat.
But on the flipside -- you can store nutrients in MUSCLE tissue if you prioritize healthy nutrients!
Please eat what you want for the Sunday after -- but Monday get right back to flushing out water and going l ow carbs... you will thank me.
This is outdated article I wrote -- but could hit home on a few points

Okay, all done. They didn't separate our class at all, and I think there were about 35 of us in open figure.
I didn't get top 5
I did get my critique from the judges, which was overall very positive. Area of improvement:
Bigger mass, more confidence. I knew I was coming in small, and I was certainly nervous!!
And my fan squad said my posing looked but I just looked skinny in comparison.
Ok, lots learned! On to the next challenge!
Thanks for all the support!!!

You get to take advantage of that post-contest size gains as well.

I have seen countless times female competitors get pushed to hard by their coaches with hours of cardio a day and low carbs and low fat menu for 6-8 weeks....only to screw up their metabolic rate and set themselves up for one nasty rebound.
usually the female will blow up in the first 2 weeks and dig themselves into a hole and 9 times outta 10 wont compete again or will try and the body and mind just will not cooperate.
