    Where are you competing if you do not mind sharing, if you have not already....

    Keep up your POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

    Do you think you could comfortably maintain long term below 8-10% without driving yourself nuts?
    Tampa who?
    As long as the Red Sox are struggling, it can't be all bad!

    I compete to become a IFBB pro. I love bodybuilding and will reach the highest level. My coach has done the Ms. Olympia three times and she has competed in the Arnold Classic three or four times. I believe she has 4-5 professional wins. So I said that to say, with her help I believe I will one day make it those stages. I look at how much I've been able to accomplish in 5 months on my own and with all your guys help. I've only been working with her for two months and I'm down to 6.5% bodyfat. We have already decided I will take a full year off and compete in this same show next year.

    As far as bodyfat in the off season goes, I will run 2-3 cycles starting with test e and dbol and possibly test and deca for the second (I have not consulted with my coach yet). I'm more concerned with mass in the offseason than bodyfat and honestly I dont believe one could put on a good deal of mass maintaining a 8% bodyfat.

    ^^^ I won't pretend to be any kind of prep coach for even a second, but IMO, try and stay between 12-15% during your bulks and you should have no problem dieting back down from that level when prep time rolls around.

    Agreed. I'll be making regular visits to my prep coach so she can monitor my bodyfat. Being at 6.5%, now. I find it would take me to become very lazy to return to the teens.

    Thanks for the support. Keep in mind, I'm at 3-4 gallons of water for the last 9 days so my water retention. I cut fluids Friday night.

    Just weighted in at 191.1lbs. Feel good, no water from here on out. Also I look sickly in a good way (no offense to anyone who is sick). I'm not too impressed with anyone in my division but I could be just being a douche bag.

    So you've seen and sized up all your competition? That's good bro... and if you're not impressed, it's because you're feeling confident compared to them - not that you weren't already. I think you got this!!!!!

    KEEP US POSTED PLS!!

    Just did prejudging my girlfriend ( who I always fail to mention is the most awesome and supportive person in the world) said I looked great. I was called out in first call out and placed in the center square in my group of six (12 competitors). I was never moved and they called a couple guys next to me for comparison but again I was not moved. I'm gonna win this thing.

    Best of luck today, you put in the work and that's all any of us can do. Hopefully your transformation/dedication will help to motivate others.
    I am impressed!

    Awesome bro, i'm on the edge of my seat for this!!!!

    Not sure if you being in the center has any significance (FG?), but aesthetically, it would seem so. Kill it brother!!!!

    Thanks everyone. Night show has started. I'm not on for another two hours. I'm dehydrated but I've overheard conversations that people are saying, I'm in the run for the overall. Getting crazy good feeback from people.

    Took 2nd in my division out of 12. The crowed was stunned my girlfriend was recording and the guy who was a trainer sitting next to her said "oh he got this". When he called me 2nd the guy next to my gf said "he just got hit with the bodybuilding politics train". No excuses, I lost and will come back and take the whole thing. My phrase for the next year 2012 and next show is "lights out". I will leave no doubt in the judges' mind.

    ^^My first show I finished 2nd place as well (17 competitors). Looking back it was a blessing in disguise as it made me even more motivated to work harder. I can tell this has done the same to you. Hopefully you get your 1st place trophy quicker than it took me (15 years and 20+ more shows!)

    My motivation is so HIGH right now. I went up and talked to the judges and shook their hands and thanked them for doing a good job. So I'm focused on winning the overall title in 364 days. Lights out.
