Hello TNation, It's been a while. Anyways I'll get right to it... I am currently sitting at 5 weeks out from a novice show (provincial pre qualifier) and a new class was just announced at 7 weeks out. I am sure you have all heard of the new Classic Physique division as it seems to have even been a hot topic on here.
This will be the first year this class is offered here and it was not what my prep was aiming towards. Up to the 7 week mark I had decided to try my hand at Men's Physique. Since the announcement was made that this class would be offered I have been jumping back and forth between the two.
Since I am sitting at the upper limit for my height for CP I feel like I could come in strong and my worry for MP is of course being marked down for too much size, despite the current standard at the pro level. This has seemed to have caused issues and a lot of controversy at the provincial level since standards seem to vary depending on who you talk to or who sho up the day of the show.
So I am looking for some insight/guidance/constructive criticism as to what may be the best decision. I definitely have more interest in Classic bodybuilding but I am also looking to find the best fit for my Physique.
Currently sitting at 175ish lbs.
