    I would've guessed you are higher than 172.

    Look fantastic.

    Did you try to prepare a week earlier(i.e. be in contest shape a week earlier before the actual contest) or did you try to be in shape on the day of the contest. Just wondering.

    Sick Mike. Looking cut. Nice back definition, but thatís to say the obvious, youíre the definition master. You have no ass though.

    Sorry, didnít mean to bust on you since we donít really have terms like that.

    You look very smooth. Did you spill over? If I'm not mistaken, you came in smaller this contest(by 6-7lbs?) than your last contest? With the diuretics and spilling over though, it really looks like you were alot smaller than that 6-7lbs.

    BTW when were the pics taken, before prejudging?

    I looked my best on friday week before the show, so you can say i peaked early, to top it all off i think my Dyazide was 50mg a tab not 25mg like i thought...ohh well f*ck it there is next year i will get it right then and kick some ass, time for growing...

    Dr.D...i will tell wife hello...i am glad i see you on here more often now, will shoot you a PM this weekend...

    saboudian, i don't think i spilled over, what happened is i got overly dehydrated from diuretics, as i took too much...my muscles become flat and the water under the skin stayed...i weight 181lbs 1 week out in a un-carbed state...i should have competeed at 176lbs...i was a couple of pounds lighter but 1 week out i was the leanest i have ever gotten...we all make mistakes, the key thing is to learn from them and apply the gained knowledge next time around...so hope fully next year i will be smarter and better and kick some ass in July...

    Thanks all!!!...for all the nice coments...

    Mike you look good as usual but not much different from the pictures ive seen in the past...If you keep getting fourth place you might want to do something differnt.. In my opinion you would look better of you gained a good 20 lbs or so....Thickin up your quads and hams a lilltte... Just my 2 cents....

    Mike..You are the man!!..Just when I think I am all jacked, you have to post another picture and bring me back to reality....That cable(vein) you have running up into your right shoulder is enviable to say the least..You and your wife are both true testament's of hard work and discipline..Although she is a hell of a lot better looking!!!!! Keep it up!!

    Just goes to show everyone how hard it is to time these things just right. Mike seems to have more experience than most of us on here and it's still a very complex thing to do just right.

    You still looked wicked just the same. Most of us wouldn't mind getting everything right and looking like you did

    Looking good man, seems to me that you've lost a bit of size though

    Symmetry

    Nice job again Mike. Symmetry looks great. I think Rich Gaspari did that most muscular with the hands on the waist the best, but your symmetry looks great in that shot. Can see the separation in the legs a bit in that pic also.

    As far as getting 20 lbs heavier. Please don't do it. Because I know you would still be just as lean, and that would mean us bigger guys would have to train and diet even harder. So leave us in our happy place for now. ;-) .

    In all seriousness though, Spring 2005 when I hope to do my 2nd show, I'll be looking for your book on the shelves to help with my diet prep.

    Great job Mike...

    Meee

    One of the best physiques on AR. Another 20 lbs and you'll be unbeatable.

    The only... hehe and ONLY thing I can see is you need more size on your quads/hams mike.. that could easily make you 20 lbs heavier.

    It's true Mike. You have the aesthetics and symmetry to do serious damage in competition. If you could keep that and add about20 pounds, you'd be blowing these guys away. I seriously doubt the guys ahead of you have your caliber of genetics.

    Again, you look great!
