kurtjs Posted August 26, 2007 Share Posted August 26, 2007 (edited) I'm first going to say that I'm sorry to the forum that I have not been on much. I've been preparing for my first BB show for the last 12 weeks and before that I was in the mist of semester at college. Along with dieting and training for this contest, I've been working three different jobs this summer, so my free time to sit and read the board has been limited but I thought people might be interested in hearing what I did. I posted an intro about myself last June 2006 if you want more info about me, although a lot has changed about me since I wrote that post over 1 year ago. I've now been vegan for just over 1 year and three months and been vegetarian for longer. Anyway, I did an OCB show in NJ yesterday. I competed in the novice short and the open short class. I'm about 5'6"-5'7" and I weighed about 125lbs on stage. This was my biggest downfall!! I was ripped to shreds, my conditioning my great, I was holding very little water, but I was outweighed by 20, 30, 40, 50 pounds. I'm going to post some links for some pics from the photos that were taken from the show and hopefully they open, if not, I'll post some myself. (I've never posted pics before so I may need some help) The end result was that I placed 5th out of 7 in the novice short and placed 8th out of 9 in the short open. I know If I had about 20 pounds on my frame with my conditioning that I brought to the stage I would have done much better. Overall, I'm very pleased with the way I looked. I feel that on stage I looked about 90-95% as good as I could have. I could have been a bit drier and been a bit more carbed up (fuller) but I really don't feel that would have helped my placing much at all. I'm planning on now taking some real time (couple years) to really pack on some size and try and step on stage about 15-20 pounds heavier with the same conditioning that I had. Thanks for reading this post and I'd love to see and hear about more people stepping on stage on this forum. I know Rob is always competeing and I see a "new" face in Dr. Joe, who is doing great for himself. Looking forward to seeing Daywalker step on stage again as well with some new found mass. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/11.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/7-1.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/6-1.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/4-1.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/3-2.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/1-2.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/DSC_0046.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v280/amprok/DSC_0049.jpg Edited August 27, 2007 by kurtjs Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
