Ok guys first off, WOuld like to say this section on bb.com over the past 4 months has been so helpful to me and really has me on the edge of my seat wanting to hop in and compete again.
All the questions answered from the memebers of this forum is quite unbelievable.
Starting lifting weights when I was around 15 years old. Didn't Start Bodybuilding untill January 09. Then without much thought hopped in the NPC LONG ISLAND teen and mens middle class and the week after just teen at NPC Atlantic states.
17 years old ,5 "10 around 160 skinny pounds. After that started talking to Whoopitskevin, And when I moved off to school(Suny Brockport) I really started to get serious. So training with kevin, and meeting his training partner Pudgeman(Lester Gale) my physique started to grow and mature a little. Shortly after that bodybuilding was treating me good I won teen of the week and Signed with Genr8 Vitargo, the same week I turned 18. Which was real cool.Shortly after that started a contest prep with kevin for the INBF NSSN. The show did not go the way I wanted in a few ways, really came in to light, in the morning no dream tan thought 5 coats of pro tan was good but it wasnt. Then ran into some stiff competition with teen sensation of 2010 Michael Charles showing up and shocking everyone trained by shaun clarida, he took the show by storm . Then went on to go undefeated in every other show he did except naturalmania where he took 2nd to James mcguire the overall winner.
I ended up 3rd in teen class, and I felt judging was off, and if my color was on i would have had 2nd hands down, but im not bitching and moaning about that its done and over.
After that training at school got real intense. Kevin took 1st in the lightweights and it was good lost overall and eh, idk it was close. Then 3 weeks later my other training partner Kyle glickman took first in novice heavy and 2nd in open in the NGA CAN AM, and Lester took 3rd open heavy and best poser, Then bobby voigt a good friend of mine, came in won open lights, novice light novice overall and 2 weeks later won nga pro card at nga northeast. This is just backround to Who Im training with(ITS GREAT there) We are the brockport rat pack and there are 3 other bodybuilders all who have placed top 3 in novice and 1st in teen classes that are all under 21 at our school. Its wild in the gym there.
Backround is over. FUTURE
Im looking to compete sometime at the end of summer possibly joe Francos show aug 27
then for sure INBF LONG ISLAND Experience sept 24
then paul iatomasi show inbf natural USA oct 8 i believe.
Im looking to real improve over the next 20 weeks or so before i start my contest prep and feel this type of thread will help track my progress, and have others correct me on what I may be doing wrong and what needs to change.
So Ill be updating this daily for sure, and thought id post some pics and vids
to show where i came from and where im going
the pics in red were from first shows, ones in blue were 2010 shows
