I keep thinking I’m fat 12 days out.

Any tips for the first show?

i think you are on the right track bud. practiced your routine enough?

You look good. Just make sure you don’t get too dark a tan put on. Guys like you with a bit less mass typically look better with a little bit lighter color.

Fat? Dude, you’re already shredded. You look great.

What do you weigh?

arm on side chest is very impressive

You look very dry! Hope you enjoy the experience! Make sure you use a scrub the week prior to tanning, ive been told if makes a HUGE difference

Looking great all around!

One suggestion though, learn to flex your hamstring in the rear poses! if you bend your ‘rear’ leg a bit, and allow it to take more of your weight while squeezing your glutes, you’ll get all those cool lines running up and down.

Best of luck!

You’re looking great. You will be surprised at what some of the people at the show look like if you think YOU are fat :wink: Some people do get stupid, crazy shredded… But most dont. You will do great.

Weight 150 lbs LOL. My posing sucks. :smiley:

Yeah I have a lot of problems getting my hamstrings to pop during side poses. Thanks Stu!

Thanks everyone. :slight_smile:

And yeah I DO think i’m fat lol. It’s hard do judge since you see yourself every freakin day.

Looking good, continue doing whatever you are doing to tighten up even more.

Continue fine tuning your posing.

Quickly invest in an additional bottle of ProTan, I think you might need more than you would guess you would.

You look great, definitely not fat. Make sure to spend a lot of time practicing posing over the next 11 days.

When you ‘hunch’ your back like that, yes it does allow you to fully wrap your lats around your torso (I do it as well), but you should then, stand back upright, which will allow the smaller, finer details of your back to be evident as well.

Also, bend your legs slightly, and squeeze those hamstrings!!!
(You’ll thank me when this is all over -lol)

Try bending your left leg (rear leg) and sitting down more in this pose. Place your right toes into your left foot instep and turn your right knee slightly towards the rear of the stage while pressing your right thigh against your left thigh. This will make you hamstrings pop out more, show more of your calves and make you look more “compact” in this shot. Do the same for the side chest (turn more towards the stage with your upper body in this shot).

Sounds funny when I type it out, but it works.

If I can be as lean/shredded as you on stage i’ll be very pleased, wtf ur not fat LOL

Any tips on how to go about training cardio carbs etc in the final week?
