    No problem, if I had more time I would've tried moving the posts directly from the thread and then combined them into one post per competitor here.
    F-in weekend is flying by right before my eyes.


    Cape, I had to reciprocate for the gallon jug of shine somehow; just got it all poured up into smaller, more portable jars this morning. I never need to go off wandering with more than a pint jar and that's if I out visiting.
    Last time I went off with more than a pint it took me 3 days to haul off the trash and the collection station is less than 3 km away.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    A pint should be plenty for a traveler. I watch Moonshiners on tv. I see them filling 5 gal buckets and think that would kill me.

    Ok I was a judge last time and it is difficult to get before and after pics side by side. I saved them to my PC and arranged them.

    So this is my attempt to make it easier for the judges. I have to many pics to put them all in one post though. So before on the left after on the right.

    Judges this is side by side 4 of the required poses. I will put next set in different post can only do 8 pics at a time.

    Age:57 Height 5' 10" Weight 219 precomp and 217 Post Comp.
    I like the way you laid the pics out....makes it so much easier, plus the original date stamp is with the pic.

    Competitors, please bear with me, I've almost got my rankings settled in my mind. I'm going to say this was once again a real no shitter.

    Having 2 categories makes it more difficult in a way, because once you refine the growers from the show-ers, it really gets down to the fine details.

    FYI, I've been doing this for several hours just this evening. I've been peeking into the thread off and on frequently and am taking it seriously because I believe each and every one of you deserve that for all of the work you put in. To do anything less than that would be both disrespectful and unfair.

    I believe everything is contained in this thread now, GH.

    Sorry I didn't have more time to move the posts indivually from the competition thread and then combined them, but I rarely get a free weekend, much less one that isn't a weekend of rain.

    Mine goes through spells like that. I restart/reboot and it helps sometimes. They say they don't throttle unlimited data, but I wave the BS flag on that.

    No problem, glad to help when/if I can. It helped me out as well instead of digging through the thread.

    Itís not about that so much as where Iím at for work, and how much Iím there. My home life has literally been shower, sleep, grab prepped food, leave since paving season kicked back in. Iím pretty sure Iíve spent more waking hours in the gym than my apartment since the beginning of March.

    Heh, just saw that on my FB feed yesterday.

    I was huge in my 20s, just the wrong kind of huge. The 30s are proving correct so far. Weíll see how the rest goes.

    Last time when I judged it was impossible. I wanted to see side by side and it would have been nice if it was the same pose. Some posed more for the pre and some posted more for post, pics sideways, etc ... The first time I entered I messed up too, but after being a judge I learned. Maybe we should have a little helpful hints for pics section, but maybe not because I get a little edge doing it in a way that makes it easy to see if there is improvement.

    I would like to bring the judges back in focus. Beyond a doubt charger looks more muscular, well proportioned, tanned etc .... than any of us in MI, but he started out looking damn good. If someone comes into this at 25% BF and drops bodyfat to 15%, but really isn't very muscular they could still win MI. To be far it's harder for charger to show improvement because he always looks good and has less to lose or gain, but he does have the advantage of knowing how to pose and highlight his improvement.

    Good luck to everyone! I am sure the judges are having a hard time.

    Yes that’s very true about charger. He always looks so god damn buff and tan! Harder to show large improvement. I was gonna shave and tan a little for my after pics but I decided to keep it the same and under the same lighting so it was as even a comparison and possible

    Iíve added Charger to same list as Kelkel.

    Great dedication.
    Extremely consistent.
    Very knowledgeable.
    Pleasant personality.
    Role models.

    If I find out they eat and , Iíll be crushed forever.

    Thank you for those kind words!! I really am disappointed with myself. I begin to doubt myself and I was actually thinking of not competing because it gets harder each year.
    I guess I see a different Charger than everyone else.
    I have never given up and I have trained for the last year for this upcoming competition . I am getting back on that horse and get on stage. I can tell right now that the mental roller coaster ride is going to be pretty intense.

    I would like to thank everyone for the kind words! You guys donít really know how much that keeps me going. You guys help me keep getting back on the horse.

    I do think that Mrs Tarm should get some sort of award for the faces. LOl
    I would also like to post two more photos (not to be considered for the comp), but end the comp with a better photo.

    Donít be too hard on yourself man. Just sack up and go for what you want. I know every damn time I see your pics Iím like damn I hope I can look like that one day. Youíre a beast and donít let your mind tell you anything different. You are a serious role model to us younger guys.

    60's: praying that you don't obliterate another joint or body part, because if you do live to 70 or beyond, you want to look in the mirror & not vomit at what you have become.
