I just did my first contest on saturday and I’m working on uploading the pictures. I’m trying to get an idea where you guys think my weakest points are. I’ll try to post as many shots as I can but I’m having a tough time finding a decent back shot.
I’m 25, have been training since high school but training more seriously for about 4 years. In the last few years I’ve been doing set programs usually for about 4-6 weeks then switching. I have done GVT once the last 2 years. Another program I did was ABBH 2. When I’m not doing a set program from someone else I like to do a 5 day split in this order: Legs, Chest, Back, Shoulders, Direct Arm.
Here are my stats before I began dieting for the contest:
Flat Bench: 275
for this contest I did Berardi’s “Get Shredded Diet” strictly for 12 weeks which was very very difficult but the results were good. My conditioning for the show was good but I lacked the mass of other competitors. I was about 153 lbs. at the show and I came in 5th place in the novice division.
additionally for the final week before the contest I used CT and Shugarts “shredded in 6 days” to lose my water which worked well. I may look a little smooth since all the photos are from the night show and I had about 20 ounces of gatorade and lunch between the pre-judging and night show.
