    Agree with all the comments. Really look on point.
    Remember with your side shots to push the front leg against the back leg and slide it forward to help pull out the ham.

    You're going to nail this! Hope I can make it down.
    appreciate the tip kel. As of this morning Iím below stage weight for my open class - 164.6!!!

    I'd say you're pretty much there, Igi!!

    ....and I feel sorry for your toilet. Oh well, you'll teach it a lesson about sitting there with mouth hung open.

    Yep, toilet going to work OT!!!

    What's on the rectangular plate? Looks like little pieces of toast with goat cheese and possibly some kind of ham?

    Looks damn good. The wife loves spaghetti but hates when we have it for a meal. She's a big time talker during a meal and I'm more focused on getting it done. My reply is usually ".... can't talk. Eating".
    Also, she says I ruin my spaghetti because I like to dice up 1 or maybe 2 black olives and stir them into everything. Be careful though, if you try it. A little goes a looong way.

    It was bruschetta and was amazing. I likely had around 10 of them

    Yes sir kel thatís the idea. I think Iím optimized 2.5-3 hours afterward, but had a nice full look for hours afterwards, even through the next morning.

    For the show, however, I will obviously be eating less and probably just focusing mostly on carbs as opposed to other macronutrients

    **Marcus's HIT Dungeon**

    158 lbs (7 lbs under stage weight) and 10 days out. This past Saturday was a turning point for me that came with an amazing cheat meal. Prior to that, the last 3 1/2 - 4 weeks were very challenging mentally and physically. Canít quite put it into words, but Iíve definitely learned a lot about myself throughout this process and the discipline I thought I had before was nothing compared to what it took to get to where I am now. 25 pounds from where I started this prep, and I believe the hard work is over, and now we just need to keep it dialed in through show day and bring what we made.

    Will post some pics in a few. Please feel free to critique, provide tips, any advice is always valued, and appreciated

    Looking tight, Igi!!! Really, really good. As Kel mentioned before the lights and spray tan are absolutely going to bring out those details to an even greater degree!

    Side note....Are those Wigwam socks?

Difficult to be seeing this is my first show but been through enough of them and backstage with friends and teammates to know what to expect

    Actually was referring to that older fella behind you. His deltoid, upper arm & lat separation is ridiculous for an old dude! JK, lol.

    Seriously man, youíre looking insane & itís got to be nice having the support of folks on this journey.

    Keep killing it Igi!

    that dude is a legend in the locker room Iím not shitting you. Homie walks around proudly free breezing at any given moment. Take one look (canít miss it) and youíll know why

    Yes indeed. My family and friends have been a huge part of this journey and I honestly couldnít have done it without them, especially my wife, who Iím so grateful for

    **Marcus's HIT Dungeon**

    One week out here we go. Feeling great. Coach has given me an additional 50g cabs and 50g fats the past 3 days and virtually no weight change. Still at 158lbs. Going low for this weekend at 40g carbs (55f/165p) and 1,315 total cals but have some good energy headed into it and feel like my glycogen has been restored so grateful for that feeling.

    Will likely go high Monday and then take it from there, itís a day by day process at this point, I feel good, confident, and I have no doubt that Iíll be ready come stage day. Iím waiting for nerves to kick in, none yet, outside of Monday Iím taking the rest of the week off to focus.

    Amazing leg day yesterday and high intensity, cardio, great energy, going to do a push day today and, if I had to guess, will maintain 30 minutes cardio, but weíll see what coach says
