Alright I'll start with a lil background. Started lifting in junior high, and then high school. Didn't know anything besides i wanted to get strong for football. College came and I lifted with no rhyme or reason, just to relieve stress and get away from school. 3 semesters ago started thinking about bodybuilding, then met a guy at school who im sure a lot of you know as whomperfit, and well since then, became convinced to do a show. I'm a junior now at Texas A&M in College Station and studying Mechanical Engineering. I have to admit, at times its hard to find the 1.5-2 hrs in the weightroom everyday, but it honestly keeps me sane. I'm sure many feel this way! For the record, I owe much credit to whomper!! seriously! I read these forums at least twice a day for a good while each time, and have to say, this forum is by far the best that I've been to!! Not gonna keep going on with the boring stuff..
Im looking to do the INBF Southwestern in Austin, Texas on July 17th. So it's still a good ways away. About 18 weeks away actually. Im currently eating about 2200-2250 calories a day with macros at an average of 50-60/180-190/220-230 (f/c/p) and been averaging about -1 lb a week.
Age: Just turned 21 (not a good time to start a cut, I KNOW, but its dedication)
Current Weight: 166-168 lbs
Current Height: 5'7
Shoe size: haha just kiddin
From what ive seen, not gonna really post anything about workouts, don't find that information all that interesting cuz i think everybody is a lil different and you don't get too much out of reading someone elses workout during a cut.
I want to get some opinions. Based on my pictures, just kind of curious if yall think im on track and any suggestions yall may have...im open to all of them. I'm not experience, as this is my first show, therefore im really curiuos and open-minded to suggestions and advice.
Well heres the pics:
