Tunen!!!1! i'm so glad you posted!
man oh man. all i do is post pictures, and really nothing else, and all this hate on little old me well i guess it's ok, if i wasn't soooo cocky i guess i'd be a little disheartened :)
i find it beyond fascinating at the negativity displayed on here, and the positivity found in real life.
But you gotta realize when people like Flex (who got turkish in shredded shape a number of time) also tells you that you should have dieted for 4-6 weeks longer, well, then there's probably some truth to it (:
I for one have no I have no intentions of just being negative towards you, I don't see the point in that, but i'm telling it like a see it and I do think you should have dieted longer. When a lot of people is stating this I do understand how you kinda percieve it as agressive and negativity; but look at the posts again - nobody is putting you down; they are giving you advise dude.
I do get your plan Jase and you certainly will place very well in the heavies because your conditioning is good, I'd just like you to come in fuckin sliced man but obv itd put you in the light heavies I know and there is more competition. Maybe next time when your heavier you can do.
All you can do is focus on this show and come in the best you can with the time and resources that you have available. To be quite honest, I think an comments about "shoulda dieted longer" and so on are pointless. Just do everything you can to come in your best shape for this show. Let the judges judge you and then ask for their advice after the show as to what you can improve upon next time.
what was it 9 weeks out you started dietiting for your last show? now you did 12 weeks and you look so much better bigger and conditioning is better and so that is all you need to do, improvements is what you made and what else can you do
you prolly need 16 weeks also it would be good to hire a nutrionist so you donīt have to worry about the diet
thank you and this is the plan for the future. i'm well aware of my conditioning level. to address essenesn, i don't think i'm shredded dude, i never once said that and i don't think you're wrong to say i could have dieted longer/differently. i do think i'm in solid condition for a heavyweight and will do well. coming in at 203lbs in much better condition that last year when i competed at 192 is a huge improvement in my eyes and keeps me well on the right track to keep at it.
and good post max, thank you.
So whats the point of doing a show and not busting your ass? Maybe you don't win....maybe you don't even place well, but atleast you'll have the satifaction of knowing you did the extra cardio, dieted harder, did everything you could do to come in at your absolute best.
You really can't say that though.
Not really gonna give you too much of a hard time (or type much more) cause I know this will go in one ear and out the other.
I was kinda like you when I was competing at your age, but I had a honest sounding board and not a bunch of kids on the internet telling me I had a great chest and that I'm ready to step on stage.....lol. I never felt like I was ready cause I was always scared of failure.
Again, you don't seem to have this problem.
Maybe you just don't care enough or give a shit....I don't know.
my my that sounds like a mighty fine approach. here's the difference between you and i. you, would rather feel all warm and fuzzy inside with the feeling like you "did your best", whereas I, would rather place well, and build on that. a trophy lasts forever. you're feeling of self satisfaction doesn't. you weren't at my gym today, you didn't see what i look like currently 5 days out. my gym is not full of a bunch of brown nosers (lol not at all, quite the contrary).
and yes, it is quite apparent by my build and condition that i clearly, CLEARLY, do not give a shit. i mean come on, who would step onstage looking this bad? i assume you had a very successful career as an amaeteur to be speaking like you do.
i am extremely pleased with the progress and transformation i've made and am already incredibly excited for the next show! whenever that may be. i made this thread for my friends on this site who requested it via PM on here and facebook messaging, i didn't put it up to have a bunch of e-experts, who quite honestly have accomplished nothing in the sport, to tell me how bad i look. i have real bodybuilders at my gym to give me advice when asked. if that comes off as arrogant, i'm sorry. but i don't go on the internet seeking approval. i think i would be clinically depressed if i did. it's remarkable how easily people can just spew hate when they're safe and cozy behind their keyboards.
sorry if that came out as harsh, but you all have been nothing but with me :) truth hurts
I agree with both opinions wrote in this thread.
Yeah, maybe he could have dieted longer, or shorter or in a different way but.... who cares now?
Anyway, if Duality chases a top 2 placing in the heavies... why not? Of course you must feel great when your diet's strict, meals are strict and so on but it is not a dumb decission what Duality has made, IMHO.
If I were him, right now, a few weeks out, I'll stick to my original plan (heavies), step onstage and being wrong or right, have a new experience.
He has plenty of time, he could fuck up (if he is actually fucking it up) his prep and being better next time.
And hell yeah, I honestly think you guys really want him to nail his best condition.
You can't expect it to be all roses and rainbows when you make a thread like that (and by that I mean a thread where people will judge your physique).
Again there's not much hate going on in this thread, only people giving you advice and constructive criticism.. and 95% of those people have been competing at least once in their life.Quote
I'm pretty sure that if you fund the plain tickets those same people will be more than happy to tell you the exact same thing face to face. It has nothing to do with hiding behind a keyboard but that we live in different parts of the world.Quote
It sure does.Quote
^ again, i didn't post for approval and "rainbows", i posted because i was receiving multiple requests to do so. you think i don't know what to expect from some on this forum? did you not see my squat thread?
i'm posting this to allow those who are interested, which there are some, to follow me on this journey. not to tell me how to navigate it.
