Hello, all. I’m currently training for powerlifting and train with the great Ed Coan. I’ll possibly compete in my first meet in March or some time after that. However, there is always something I’ve wanted to do, and that’s step on the stage in my underwear and flex for some judges. Just kidding.
But really, it’s something that I’ve considered for a while. It wouldn’t be for over another year, like in April or May of 2013, after I’ve figured out where I’m going to college and all that. I’ve been told that I have the right structure (5’7" and 195 lbs) and some good genetics to go by (my cousin is NPC bodybuilder Jake Baumgartner).
So, the real question is, would switching my training completely (after my last season of football) be worth it? Ultimately, would entering a bodybuilding show be a good experience? It’s just something that I would like to do before I go off to college.
Here’s some stats, if you would like:
Years training: 2
Weight: 195 lbs
Squat: 385 lbs
Body fat: 12-14%
Bench: 275 lbs
Deadlift: 425 lbs
If you would like some pictures of myself, then I’d be happy to post some. Just let me know.
