so i got my little brother to take some pics of me. i will be competing in the teen and novice divisions in my show june 28th (i'm 19). i started 10 weeks out (i know, i know, too late, but braaq talked me into it) at 235lbs and approx 14% bf. i am currently 207lbs in this pic (so i've lost 28-30lbs in 8 weeks) and prob have another 5-7lbs of fat to drop before i drop water, which i know i'm holding a fair amount of. i don't feel this pic does me justice in the vascularity department nor do i feel it makes me look as big as i feel i am, but it's a fairly aesthetic shot for me so it'll do. i will hopefully be posting more pics tomorrow or so when i can get my brother to take more pics of me.

here is probably my worst shot and it's my own fault, i've only very recently started deadlifting :duh:. but you can see my christmas tree and it is very prounounced when i pull back my arms before doing the rear lat spread. i still got a little to lose right by the waist line on top of that water i'm holding all over....but i'll get there.

You still have a stretch to cover but keep at it and don't cheat.

How do your legs look?

they currenty are down from 29" to 27" since dieting. my quads are pretty solid and braaq says they're one of my best/better bodyparts. my hams could use more hang from the side, but they look good from an inside view of my leg. i'll try to get some pics up of them very soon.

ya i know i have some to cover. i hope using diazide isn't cheating :keke: it's a very mild non loop diuretic i will use right before the show.

I meant don't cheat on your diet. Diuretics aren't going to make you lean.

Looks good :):xyxthumbs:
The only thing that could be better is the back width. But that will come after a while. The deads will help you with that with out a doubt. Good luck :xyxthumbs:

you know it's funny you say that, braaq has told me my width is rather good it's just my thickness that is lacking. i think it is the way i am flexing in the first shot that makes my lats seem smaller, i'll try to get a lat spread shot up though so you can judge.

oh ya of course i can't afford to cheat. i haven't had one cheat meal this whole time. my diet has been high protein, mod carbs, low fat. my offseason consumption was 4000cal a day, i cut that to 3200, then to 2800, and now 2500. i'll prob be dipping to 2300 soon. i know people say don't count the calories count the carbs and fats and whatnot, but everytime i've cut the calories, i've lost notable weight, and i have to say i'm very happy with how i've held on to muscle while doing this.

Sounds reasonable. You'll be fine for your debut.
