    Finally posted some pics

    I am finally posting some pics. I want to enter a natural show this October. I am currently at about 231-233 pounds at 6'5" tall. Not sure about bodyfat, I'd guess 17%. Seeing the pictures really makes me regret our belated Cinco De May feast on Friday and All you can eat Sushi on Saturday. Finally, I know I have tons of improvements to make, but considering a few years back I was about 287 @ 35% or so. Mark

    Apparently they do. I figured that was a way to enter the competition arena on a fairly level playing field. That said, I still expect to get my butt kicked royally by guys 6-8" shorter than me. Plus, with the exception of Synthroid (due to removed thyroid from Thyroid Cancer) and creatine I'm totally natural. Personally, I would rather lose to ten people than beat no one. Mark

    11/11/05 Update

    Here are a few pics from Veteran's Day '05. This was Friday night right before my wife and I left for our cruise. Admittedly I had cheated on Mexican and a couple of Margaritas before the pics were taken. Lastly I assume the vein in my left quad has something to do with the camera as it doesn't look like that normally. Mark

    After a seven day cruise you wouldn't wanna see the pics. That's why I posted the before ones. J/K! Thanks for the kind words. Mark

    ggod job on the wieght loss.
    i'm sorry to be the one to break this to you but, those natty shows are NOT natural. people just make sure they are clean before they enter. you WILL get you ass handed to you unless you put on some serious mass and shed some serious BF. again, sorry to rain on your parade but i'm just being straight with ya. you are progressing though, keep it up, train hard, and think about a show once you progress further in the sport. good luck

    test

    I'm convinced that's something that the digital camera added. It's not there normally. Also, don't worry about the constructive criticism. I realize full well that I have a bunch of mass to add and fat to burn. Plus, I've sort of put the BB show on the back burner for now as I am enjoying the fruits of getting/being leaner. Mark

    Ha ha, that vein looked pretty f*cking freaky bro. As for everything else, testosterona is right, just keep working out and you'll be fine. Those competitors are not natural though. AT least half of them are jacked up with juice.

    Good improvements indeed.



    Still, not a flame but, imo you're a long way off from competition...even a natural one. If you don't mind..post up threads in the diet and workout forums..as i'm sure I and other members would be curious about your diet/training.

    Half doesn't equal all.

    Mark... when you've got it in your mind that you're ready to compete...don't let the thought what anybody uses deter you.

    I've competed against gear users naturally, and kicked their asses.

    Take it from me... bodybuilding isn't about gear.

    It's mostly up here *points to head*

    Mental weakness/strength...that's the determining/limiting factor.

    Good luck

    I am not trying to be rude, but I have an honest to god question. If your going to compete in a natural competition, than anyone that has never lifeted a weight could compete. I dont see alot of transformation, maybe hit the weights for a year or two than consider showing off for a natural competition.

    Here's the thread I created to my diet. http://forums.anabolicreview.com/sho...d.php?t=208200 The formatting got a little messed up transfering the file from Excel. This is (for the vast majority of time) what my diet looks like. I am currently training 3x a week (down from four). Sunday is back day- I seperate it in to two seperate routines widening days (pull ups, etc.) and thickening (deadlifts, rows, etc.) and then do forearms. Tuesday is chest shoulders (mostly incline presses, dips, flyes) and Millitary press, lat and front raises. I finish with shrugs. Friday is leg/arm day. Squats, leg curls, seated calf raises, EZ Bar Tricep extensions, and barbell curls. I vary the rep ranges from week to week, but prefer to train in the 6-12 rep range. Mark
