Alright fellas here we are again. Mods can move this if they dont want it in this section cuz I wasnt sure. I am currently just under 8 weeks out from the NPC Empire Classic. I will be competing in the light heavy weight division. I am currently at 205 lbs. As usual, I honestly swear that my legs look better than this in real life.
I will update this log as often as I can all the way up to the show. Here are a few low quality pics taken on the ladies cell but it gives you an idea of where I am at.

Jut going off pure memory from when you last competed but your arms look bigger now and you look thicker in the back. I love the shape of your abs too.

Did you put on a lot of mass since your last show? Or, did you just get too sucked out for that show?

You look much bigger.

If you want to chuck in some comparisons to last year that would be good too Mike!

I'm seeing some improved back development! You look a tad leaner at 8 weeks than you did last year, is that a fair call?

What is your goal weight onstage?

Thanks for the support guys. I think it is fair to say that I have made some improvements and put on some mass this off season. I have been lifting way heavier and harder than ever. I am shooting for 190 on stage.
Flex- I think it is a combination of the two. Since this is an NPC show, I am more focused on maintaining mass and not solely focused on conditioning. My calories are at 3034 right now with 280 from protein, 97 from fat and 265 carbs, which is all higher than last year. I figure this is making a difference at maintaining mass.

I havent done any cardio yet either, as I have been able to steadily lean out without it. I will use it as a tool when I need it. I will takes Tim's idea and post comparison pics later!

For eight weeks out you look terrific! Your back relaxed pose is pretty sweet too. But we have to get some new leg shots with better lighting. :cool:

By the way how tall are you if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks again guys. I will get some quad shots up. I had to take those pics with poor lighting cuz there were some dorks doing some intense yoga on the other side of the room so I just opened up one of the blinds. I will get quad shots up soon. I am 6' tall.
