Just a quick update...It's been two weeks from my first competition. I placed 4th in the Bantam division of the Los Angeles Bodybuilding, Figure, Men's Physique and Bikini Championships help last July 23, 2011. What an incredible and unique experience. I learned so much and I am so happy inside for being able to accomplish what I did. It is not an easy process but it just makes it more worth it. I am taking what I learned from this experience and using it to better myself next year. I will definitely put more emphasis on my legs and back this off-season. Thanks for all the feedback.

Thanks Bushidobadboy. I've read a lot of you post and you make sense in a lot of the things that you write about. Thanks for all your contribution to the board. I will definitely bring up my quads and back this off-season. I am re-reading a book I read a few years ago (Training for Mass 2nd edition by Gordon LaVelle). It's primary focus is high intensity training making use of techniques such as positive failure, assisted reps, cheating and rest pause techniques. I am also re-readig another book I have Nutrient timing by John Ivy. What sort of books are you reading now a days, if you don't mind me asking?
