Hey guys! I’ve learned a lot from and enjoyed following the contest threads of Stu, Tim, Lonnie, Grind, Zraw, Spidey, etc, and I hope that anyone who is interested will follow along, comment, and help me out with mine! I’ll be starting my contest prep this weekend for two shows in late May/early June.
I’ll be competing in men’s physique, but bodybuilding is definitely my plan for the future and I’ll be approaching the prep as if I’m competing in bb’ing. Don’t hold back with the men’s bikini jokes though, I can handle it :). I will be prepping for 20 weeks, and will be working with IFPA pro Brian Ahlstrom on my prep. Jacob Trout of The Strength Guys Inc. does my training (highly recommend Jacob, he is going big places in coaching in my opinion!).
A little background info on myself: I’m 20 years old, and am a junior in college. I play baseball at an NCAA DIII school in Nebraska, so it’ll be interesting prepping during the season, lol. I had originally planned to start prep at the end of the season and compete in late summer shows, but I decided this makes the most sense for me financially, as there are two shows in Nebraska that I can compete in this spring. If anyone has any questions or comments, please post! I’ll go ahead and post a few pictures that I sent Brian today.
