Yeah, I think I get it. After less than a year of training though, not sure doing a contest prep would be valuable. I feel like I need to put in a few more years of training to make it worthwhile to do a contest prep. I think I will just cut to ten percent and try to stay there. I know BF% isn’t a good gauge, so to put it another way, get to a good lean level, six pack, and then stay around there for a few years before trying a contest prep.
Had this conversation with a friend. I think I would have to be around 165 to be stage ready, and at 6’ tall, 165 isn’t going to impress any one.
Also, I need to clean up my diet. I like the IIFYM for regular training, but getting all of my carbs from Snickers bars isn’t going to be beneficial, lol.
