Well I would say that for mass I was, but in conditioning no way because from the rear I wasn't near as sharp. Its a balancing act of size and conditioning, so I could've done a show with that 4wk out look. However, many would more than likely criticize my conditioning, especially since I've always had that part down. Over time, I will attain muscle maturity (only 28) so then I will have more size to battle with. For now I choose the balance presented at the early shows this year with maybe a couple more lbs of muscle in the shoulders, chest and back.
As for the comment on my calves, thanks, anytime someone has to ask about them being real, then its flattery. I've always had that shape and maybe in my new dvd I will feature them.
you got a point there, thats like a double show though.... You can come in to the shows ripped like u should look onstage but make sure to take a lot of photographs and videos to release after he competition and that would be impressive in its own right.
