    I have heard some bad stuff about Dream Tan and the look it gives competitors. If you werent dark enough with Pro-Tan you likely just needed to apply a few more coats of it. Jan Tana works very well too and goes on easier then Pro-Tan.

    That was your problem right there. I usually do 2 coats wednesday, 3-4 coats thursday, another 3-4 on friday and 1 more saturday morning then cover with bronzer prior to prejudging.

    TBH I am a bit apprenhensive you are 6.3% 16 weeks out. If that's the case you are a diuretic away from competing right now. My avy is mid 6% BF for reference.

    It should be interesting seeing some new pictures. Your pics from 5 years ago you already had some good size, hopefully the last 5 years have been good for you.

    I used dream tan. Like the look it gives me. Of course your venue has to allow it. Did 2-3 coats of pro then applied dream before going out on stage. Gives a real nice shine.
