johnny i think this highlights the condition of my upper body well. you can see large chest striations, good vascularity, and can really tell that there is minimal bodyfat on my serratus/oblique area. and (i'm doing it as i type) there is essentially nothing to pinch. give me a little credit. i am holding however a good chunk of water that i plan on erasing rather easily.
Can we get pics of poses rather than of you training?
You look very good, but when I say that in terms of your physique rather than your conditioning. You say you'll look good come show day, but you should be ready to go on stage at least a week before IMO.
However, you'll still place at least somewhat good thanks too your kickass physique.
i will have that as well. but he and i would like to do both as i would like to see if there is anyone interested in a 20 year old such as myself and he is an excellent photographer. but yes i will have mandatories, and thank you for your words. i'm one of those last minute kinda guys ;)
Cool pics and lightning Duality, they look like some bb magazine pics or something haha nice. Keep up the good work man and all the best for the competition and your next goal/s. Triceps and chest are uber insane! you got a great taper as well, good luck bro!
looking awesome man great pics, great taper, small hips and waist, and a big chest:D now i would like to see some poses though;P
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.
You'll absolutely look 'very good' on stage, no doubt. But if you were a bit leaner, you could look great. I do understand your reasoning for wanting to get into a particular class, but you're 20 years old, you have plenty of time to compete at a national level if you wish to stick with this.
The best learning experience you can get from one contest to the next is to get yourself as lean as possible, and then see how your body responds to the typical 'final week' manipulations. The way it might respond at 7% and at 5% are likely very different.
