    You are very, very under developed. Physique guys are small(er) for sure, but you have a lot of work to do and April is too close. I would check out both the diet section here and then find a workout regimen that revolves around building some mass.

    You are gonna have to add like 20 lbs of muscle alone. At least.

    I agree with above, you are on the smaller side but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. IMO if you go into the show with realistic goals and utilize the post show rebound to grow then it can be very beneficial for you. Especially because you would fall into the under 21 (if you have that in your country).

    The first place to start will be your diet. Second will be training.

    Great attitude. The worst thing I think you can do is show up to the show, look around, and realize that you have no place there.

    I like your attitude open to criticism ..you will go a long way not being stubborn and following tried and true advice..get your calories up get some mass on that frame and diet down for your show you can do anything with determination and knowledge and you got a great starting point.

    You have a tall, "lanky" physique and imo, will have a harder time to put on mass.

    I'd emphasize shoulders to maximize your narrower waist and get a killer "V" shape. Also start cutting gradually so you don't sacrifice muscle and come in very lean.

    Congrats to your effort thus far and your great attitude!

    Go for it, its fun no matter what. Always good to set a goal, makes you train harder.

    It doesnt matter how good looking she is, some where, some one is tired of her shit.

    I second that. My first few physique shows I looked either to big or so dry or to fluffy. Finally dialed it in and placed a few times. To be perfectly honest. The first show was the most fun! It's such a rush the first time.

    Didn't know what these guys looked like on stage. Looked up a youtube vid of a competition,and your actually about the size of these guys. Just not as lean and tanned,in which anyone knows goes a long way in ones looks.

    This is the NPC . I dont know about Australia.
    If possible, I would just shred up before trying to build size,especially by April.
    Good luck man. Let us know how it goes.
