good answer, dave. anyhow, in terms of precontest prep, it all depends on your bodyfat percent and your experience

if u r on about condition ,anywhere from 8 to 14 weeks,but you realy have to train year round

train your ass off year round. dieting length all depends on how lean you are when you start. I stay pretty lean in the offseason so 12 weeks is good for me.

just my opinion but i think bf% are overrated i mean you can be 5% but if you still look somewhat smooth you arent going to do as well...the judges dont know what % you are or probably care...i think about 12 weeks is about right if you really work your ass off in that time period
