I am also thinking about competing. Where can I see where and when competitions are held?
Where are you located?
There are several organizations. The only international one i know of is the INBF - check out their homepage for competitions dates:www.inbf.net
and how much is a plane ticket from chicago to las vegas?
Gotta pass on that one...
and how much is the entry fee usualy?
Can't tell you exactly. You have to be a member of the organization you want to compete in, so it's the membership fee (once per year) plus a fee for each contest.
and how long before a competition is it nescessary to use tanning lotion?
Depends on which brand you use and on how tanned you are before. Usually between two days in advance to on competition day.
and do you have to shave all bodyhair?
Yes. That's the worst part of competitions for me
and is there usualy a 165 lbs division?
... check the inbf homepage
If you need advice on diet, sodium, water depletion, carb loading, pre-contest workout - let me know!
How tall are you by the way? How heavy? How ripped? Have you photos? When do you have in mind for competing?
A pre-contest diet takes at least 6 weeks, if you're already very ripped. Better to take time - 3 months. So, up to 3 months before the competition, it's bulk, bulk, bulk
