no, intentionally i was thinking of doing a show, and i dieted down to the point where i was able to do one, was around 6-7% bf. but then i got a sudden change of heart, felt like i wanted to put on size again. so right now im doing a clean bulk, and the competition plans will have to wait another year or so, still young so wanna put on alittle more size before i step on stage
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Maybe Max shouldn't compete, maybe he isn't a natural, maybe he hasn't got the most pleasing shape..........
but I think FOR HIM he has actually made some improvements since those early pics. His arms have grown and even his legs have gotten thicker. Isn't that what bodybuilding is all about? Making improvements. Doesn't matter how small and from what base you start working from. Remember how "weak" his back looked in those first pics? His arms and legs had no shape to them at all.
I think Max deserves more credit. He is hanging in there. There are a lot of guys with MUCH more potential who don't train regularly, don't eat properly or stop training all together.
Maybe the guys who always put him down should stop going to his threads. We know now what your opinion is about him. Now leave him alone to do what he likes doing, what he LOVES doing.
Much respect to you Max for keeping going. I would have left the forum long ago if I was you, but because you like training and learning etc. you hang in there.
Keep on hitting the weights and congrats on the gains you have made thus far, no matter how small or insignificant others think they are.
Busting your ass in the gym doesn't make up for poor genetics.
i do agree. but i'm confused as to why everyone is telling max he needs to gain a lot more muscle before he competes.....and not driddez as well :dunnodude: this is not intended at ALL to be an insult or mean but....i'm confused here. Dridez does win the comparison with max but i'm interested to know, what divisions will you be competeing in? is the show a natural one?
^ when compared to max...but i'm under the impression they won't be competeing the same show correct?
let's spread our critique evenly over the two. max obviously is going to have a hard time as his show, but no one has given driddez any critique at all, and not only is that not right but it gives the wrong impression. do you guys think driddez is going to win his division?
^^ dridderz lives in australia and max lives on iceland so ye different shows.
dridderz, while not big, is alot shorter than max which makes him appear thicker, and imo hes got alot more muscle quality and is leaner so he will fare better. i think max should wait with this show, but if he wants to do it im rooting for him, and i want him to come in shape, just remember max, dieting is all about willpower. everyone can get in shape, but u gotta set ur midn too it bro
Same old posts by max....this shit is getting old. I dont even know why people bother giving him advice anymore. We've all given him advice countless times and it goes in one ear and out the other....its a lost cause. Everytime i see the 'recent" pics he posts which is like every 2 weeks its mind boggling how he never changes in a positive way (towards his goals)...
true. personally though if i was doing a natural show and was a true natural i wouldn't object that much if max competed.
also you don't know if this is a lifetime natural show or like a 5 year natural show. they have both with the latter being for those who have used in the past but no longer do. even though technically max would not be illeligble for even the 5 year natty show, still....c'mon no one is going to object.
