Nice heavy shrugs! I love to feel that much weight pulling on my traps. :D

Thanks, but you're not fooling me, Michael! I know for you that's easy weight! ;)
And actually i don't like shrugs that heavy. I like to stay at least at 6 reps, more weight is ... uncomfortable and i don't feel the traps. But that's always with low reps, in any exercise ;)
Next cycle is going to be slightly adapted in the weights, some exercises heavier, some easier. I can't wait :D

Nice! Take a swim and feel the water gliding over your skin. It's a very unusual feeling for a man who is used to being hairy.

:!:
I'm not exactly hairy, but that's a good idea anyway :D
From now on i'll shave every week :? until after the last show, so i guess some of my cardio can be swimming. :)

You can see improvements? :?:

I've lost some fat, right, but i don't think i'm big :(
But i guess so i'll have to impress the judges by being ripped 8)

There are no leg shots because i didn't want to drop my pants in the gym :shock: And because there has to be something new to post after the competition ;)

Awesome Alex!

You are way more ripped than I am and my contest is 2 weeks before yours!

I love the back, the arms, and abs!

Thanks for posting photos, I'll get some taken soon too. In Canada (traveling in general this week) I've been Off my diet a little bit and haven't done nearly the cardio I had hoped.

Great update shots and keep on pumping hard!

Great to see those training photos.

I've found Werdau on my map of Germany and it seems to be due east from Bonn.

It would be cool to come along and support you.

I will definitely look into it once I've got myself sorted in Bonn

:)

That'd be awesome, man! :D

It's quite far from Bonn, that's true. If it's hard for you to get there, i'll be competing in November also, in cities nearer to Bonn.
Alsfeld, Northeim and hopefully (=if i qualify) Arnstadt/Erfurt.

Would be cool if some vegans cheered for me :D
