    now im very upset. I saw some pics of you when your arms were messed up. and now this pic. today im going to do some crazy cardio.
    mike you look AWSOME. Nice cuts and some awsome size. Do you think youll be able to get down to what you want in body fat in 2 weeks. i can see the water.

    this picture for me is a motivator, im close to the size in your other pictures, and i would love to shred down like that.

    good luck bro on the cardio, and boy, i would love some advice after you get through your shows.

    go get em.....

    Look on track, bit of water, but nothing to panic about. I must say you look bigger than your weight.

    Go get your fat ass on a tread bro

    Mike, like the others have said, aside from the water you look ready for whats to come. Keep the updates coming. Don't you have another show 3wks after the first? Anyhoo, you'll kick some ass at both. Looking forward to the pics and the placement. We're all routin for 1st this time around.

    You look greta bro. SOme nice size, but youo can tell your holding more water then you'd want 2 weeks out. Don't get me wrong, you look AMAZING, but you'll flush that water out, and you'll be DANGEROUS! Always impresive bro, and good luck with the show. By the way, what weigth do yo uplan on going in at?

    Great shape, that small waist is kick ass. Ya, a little too much water but I'm confident that you'll shed that no problem.

    Do you think you'll end up as a middle this time around? How is the back looking? Legs?

    You look amazing bro! I know you are a perfectionist about your body but the little water retention you have is nothing you can't take care of in plenty of time before your show. Good luck to ya bro and you know we'll all be pulling for you!

    Thanks a lot guys, not one bad word...LOL...
    I am hoping to come in at the top of the middle weight at 176lbs, the scales around here usualy weight in a bit light, so i think if i can come down to about 178-180 i will make the cut, which is no problem...in the pic i am also flat very little carbs in the past little while, so once i fill up through the carb up and fat load, and drop my water i think i'll be one hard-ripped MOFO...the legs are good very vascular and cross strations on outter and inner heads, wicked seperation on the top as well, the hams are still someing in...and yes i do have another show 2 weeks after this one, which is the main show i am getting ready for so this is just a warm up, wait 2 more weeks after and i'll be ready and then some......

    Thanks Again!!!..............XXL

    Well bro...you never seize to amaze me. A noticeable improvement from even you last pics a few weeks ago. Just like everyone else said once you lose that water you will be ready to kick some ass. Excellent V taper going on there. Keep us posted on the progress in the next two weeks before your first show.

    I must admit I was a little disappointed that you didn't aim the camera a little lower.. you sexy bitch you!!!

    Very impressive Mike. The vascularity is there. You should dominate the middle if you make that cut. Now, let's see a pic of those quads!

    Hey guys thanks again for the kind words...

    Hey MinnieMe, if you fly me down there you take a closer look......

    The fat calipers say i am 4.7% BF, i think i am closer to 6-7%, should be 5-6% at the first show and 4-5% at the second one. As for stats:
    5'9"
    7" erect...i am not sure if you wanted that one...
    182.2 lbs
    Chest - 46"
    Waist - 31"
    Arms - 16.75"
    Quads - 25"
    Calfs - 15.75" (yeah, yeah, yeah i know it's my weak point...)
    and i will try to post a pic of my quads later on...

    Thanks Again...XXL

    Thank you for the motivation.

    You are carrying some water, but very lean. The muscles look very full right now. Good job. I can't wait to see the pics from the contest.

    honestly mike, who am I to critique? but if I were, I'd be asking about your lower abs ... I'm suprised, with your low bf and high vascularity, that they don't "pop", if you know what I mean ...

    does that help? do I get the full pic now?

    all that aside, you're amazing motivation ... when I grow up, I still wanna look just like you

    EXCELLENT WORK...

    your genetics are bad ass..the waist is incredable.

    Lose that water(the little you have), and you should win the show easily...if not then the judges are as bad as the OLYMPIA ones.

    Best of luck!!!

    I think they don't pop due to a combination of Web cam, lighting, water retention, and it looks like Mike isn't flexing his abs that tight. He'll of course remember to do that on stage.

    Make sure you flex those quads when facing front and those hams when facing back. Give them the full show the whole time.

    7" ain't gonna cut it...sorry

    Your waist is a little thick but other than that

    Stay focused and don't freak out...you are where you need to be

    just a little bit of water thats all, you have enough time to get rid ot it. Your thin waist is a nice touch, I wish I had a waist like yours, stupid me exercised my obliques for too long so I ended up with a thicker waist. Your upper body is amazing and I can see that you are bigger than before, best luck bro.
    Do you mind posting your pre-contest diet and supplements, it would help me alot
