Any tall guys here?

I'm currently at 180 pounds at 10%, 6 foot 2. There's a competition in 8 weeks from now I might try but I'm not sure if I'll be too small or not. I think I'd probably get around 170/175 before I think I'd be ready. Plus I used to be a lot heavier so I have some skin I'm waiting to shrink in a...

Cutting carbs for competition?

Ive always wondered if competitors cut carbs weeks at a time year round? I understand why they would do it to get show ready, but not during the off season. As far as I know, this is terrible for metabolism. What does everyone else think?
