Figured I'd throw a pic out there from the San Francisco BB show I just did this past September. Be gentle in your critiques. :-)

Very impressive but are you 100% natural ?( this includes prohormones). If you are what do you regard as the single most important factor in your success? Also any orignal training/diet methods you use?

Mr. Lean, thanks. As for 100% natural by your definition, no, I'm not. I have never used any anabolic steroids, prescription diuretics, etc. but have used prohormones. For this contest, I tried 1-AD for about 5 weeks and noticed that it helped my strength levels and to retail my lean mass.

I've spent most of my life as an ectomorph and have always had a difficult time putting on the weight. I competed at this show at ~186 lbs at 5'10" and intend on breaking the 190lb mark for my next show in another year or so.

As for the one thing I attribute to my success, I'd say it's really 2 things: consistency and a drive to keep improving. I'm the guy that everyone makes fun of when I bring my big ass cooler to work everyday with my meals, stays true to my diet even when tempted, and doesn't miss workouts unless it can't be avoided. I know I'll never be a professsional BB but I'm also convinced I haven't reached my full potential yet, so there is always room to keep improving and every time I hit the gym or compete, I try to be just that much better.

So as not to keep this post too long, I'll reply about the training/diet methods in another post.

Thanks again for the compliment.

I took 2nd in my class. The guy that beat me was about the same weight but a bit shorter and thus a little more stocky. It was close but I thought I had him on conditioning. That's the funny thing about competing. You never know what a particular set of judges will be looking for on a particular day. Oh well....still looking for that 1st place finish...next time!!

Thanks!

Mate, you look pretty good from wher i stand.

You say you weighed 186, any idea what bf% you were at for the contest and what your lean body mass is?

Keep up what ever you are doing cos it seems to work.

I was 186 lbs and around 4.5% BF. this was my best condition yet. The previous show I competed at 180 lbs and the same BF so for me to come in about 6 lbs heavier in a year without "chemical assistance", I felt pretty good. My goal is to compete in about 18 months around 190-195 lbs. Thanks for the compliment!

Rob

Oh, found one more pic from the show.

I've chatted with Rob a lot and believe me he is definitely natural (if you accept prohormones as natural). Altogether he is a first class act and should be a bodybuilder of the week.

He is a great role model for this sport, and I would recommend his advice and guidance to anyone. You may not agree with everyone of his methods but he will definitely point you in the right direction.

A first class act who enhances this forum with his posts.
