This is exactly why the new “rate my physique” feature is retarded! You have a good physique, yet this thread is rated a 4! What the hell is that?
Maybe we need a description of what each number on the rating scale represents:
1 - Doesn’t work out at all and is grossly overweight (obese).
2 - Overweight, but not obese.
3 - Skinny fat
4 - Average build with some training and proper nutrition.
5 - Some resemblance of someone that trains and eats correctly and has been consistent (many people would start in this category).
6 - Good gains for someone who is new to training or is overcoming bad genetics or has lost a lot of weight.
7 - Obviously works out, eats right and trains hard (this is where “most” people should be after training for several years and paying attention to diet - or where someone who is more gifted may be after just beginning to train.
8 - Competes in bodybuilding contests or could possibly compete but may still need more overall mass (this is where most people are striving to be).
9 - Competitive local or regional bodybuilder or someone with great genetics.
10 - Obviously a professional bodybuilder or someone that has reached a very high level of physique.
That way, people will give a rating that is deserving.
I agree, you could use some more mass, and I’m sure you will be able to do so in time for your next show as long as you keep tweaking your training and nutrition. Good luck![/quote]
Good post Nate. There needs to be some parameters for the rating system to work.
To the OP. Good work.
You are way beyond me in experience so I will not presume to post advice.
Good luck with your next comp.
