I have started training for a bodybuilding competition in November. This is something I have always wanted to do since I saw my first show 3 years ago. Since then I have been training to get some more mass on this lanky frame. I started out weighing around 170lbs and since then I have made great progress. This past February I finally reached my goal of 225lbs. Once I reached I that weight I thought it would a good idea to start training for a competition sometime in 2008.
At the end of February I went on a no Milk or Bread diet. I lost 10 pounds almost immediately but my strength was still going up so I knew I was not losing much muscle. So now I am at 215lbs at the end of April with my first body fat testing at 9.4%. I was still making good progress with strength going and noticing more and more definition overall. It is the end of May now and I go in for my next testing.
The results were even better. I had lost a bit of weight. I was now 209lbs at 8.1% bf. (The pictures in my profile were taken immediately after this weigh-in and bf testing). Finally I just had my latest testing this past July 4th(which was yesterday if you are reading this today). I am now at 206lbs and 7.4% bf. (I will be posting my routines and diets for the remainder of the 18 weeks.)
*My goal is to come in around 195lbs for the competition.
