NEWEST PICS ON PAGE 12
The last time I posted on this site was probably within my first year of lifting...should have just kept my mouth shut. Anyways, I'm currently 22 years old and preparing for my first contest, the NPC Border States in San Diego. I am applying to medical school this year and feel that this is a perfect opportunity for me to compete. If I'm not lean enough when the time comes, I will push the contest back to the Excalibur. I've been working with Skip.
However, this contest is not the point of this thread. I would like to use this thread to show my offseason progression over the past 3.5 years through college. I'm not posting this in the rate my physique forum because I could really care less for a critique at this point. After I compete, I will post those pictures up.
So, a little background about me....very inactive throughout my youth all the way up until I was a senior year in high school. I'm 5'5, and I was a lard at 200 lbs. Dropped to 125 lbs in less than a year with starvation and cardio. Started taking lifting a lot more seriously after I found out about this site and constantly reading ProfX, tribunaldude, and other experienced members' posts.
I now spend a lot of time on other forums...not sure if I am allowed to name them here. So, throughout my years of college, I have gradually brought my weight up to around 195-200 and maintained this weight for a couple months. I am now in the middle of a prep and hope to come in as a lightweight.
The following picture is me when I was at 200 lbs at 17 years old.
