With my first log here full up I have had time to reflect on over 11 months of solid training, learning, humour and debate. I have made some noticeable strides from a physique standpoint in this past year but there has simply not been enough overall weight gain to make dramatic strides towards my bodybuilding goals.
This will change. I will be carrying on trying to improve my powerlifts with the intention to do a raw meet in the BDFPA late this year in the midst of my “offseason” weight gain. Despite this, my overall focus and passion that drives my training is bodybuilding. I have targeted a show- NPA Yorkshire on 26 May 2013. This allows me at least 6 months of gaining size and strength before I would be looking towards diet and possible prep coaches. I will be looking for no more then 1lb a week rate of gain, but if I am able to achieve 5-10lb of muscle gain in the right areas in this time, baring in mind I have never been >198, I believe I will be in a good position to present myself.
