View Full Version : need advice on competing

I've never been in a competition, but am beginning to consider it. I don't have very much mass but I cut easily. I know I'm not ready now, and would need some time to try and bulk up. I'm a very hard gainer though. I know nothing about competitions that are available.
I live in Texas, am 45 years old next month. My current stats are:
attached are some pics.
Any advice on what I would need to do in order to get started would be appreciated. What kinds of competitions are available? Are there competitions for 'old' guys like myself? etc...

I think you could. You just need to decide which show you would like to do and figure out when to start your prep. You can go to http://www.npctexas.org/ to get info on NPC shows in Texas. Good Luck!

Great Link... I found a contest this summer in my area, so I'm thinking I might be able to bulk up more and enter.
Appreciate your help!

Thanks JLB... I'm happily married, with children! I am thinking about competing in the masters though. I'll need to work on the legs between now and then!

Well that is a no no for sure. No introducing you two! It was worth a try.
Are you thinking of the Lone Star in Plano?

JLB... Yes I am. Being that it is in June, it gives me a few months to improve and to learn about posing, etc... your advice is appreciated. I saw your website. Do you sell men's posing suits? Thanks again

I have patterns for them. :) So yes...I can. Craig won't squish in one right now. LOL Says he is too heavy and that his bellie wouldn't look cute in one. You should come over to the over 35 section on here.
I'll be doing figure in that show. Hunt us up and say hello.
