OK, so I have wanted to compete for a while now. Last year I started my first prep and this ended up happening:
LOL, JK but for serious I broke my ankle in 2 places, dislocated part of it, and had 6 fractures:
For those that do no know, I am type 1 diabetic. During the initial stages of my prep last year, I was lowing my carbs and playing with my insulin levels...well that night I did not make enough of an adjustment. I half-consciously woke up...went to the kitchen trying to get something to eat. Then I just fell over and passed out. And that little fall DESTROYED my ankle.
Anyways so that kind of took my competition plans out of the schedule.
Well I am back to normal now and ready to do this! Once and for all!
I am planning on doing the 2013 NPC Mr. Rochester for my first show. Now the date is not set, it is normally in April, but "word on the street" is that it will be June 22nd. So that puts me pretty far out.
I am going to start cutting now. I have never even achieved a full 6 pack yet! So what I am going to do is cut down, get lean, then hold that condition until 10 to 12 weeks out then shed the last few pounds. Diabetes always throws a few speed bumps, so I want to allow time to make adjustments.
Starting Weight: 166.5
3 Days on/1 Day off. 3 Sets per bodypart, except back gets 3 sets of a vertical pull (pull ups) and 3 sets of a horizontal (row).
All lifts are compound lifts.

For cardio, I am starting with Three 30 Min sessions before breakfast, I will add more as time goes by.
I will post videos along the way.
I have my maintenance around 2500 to 2600 calories.

Once a week, on delt and arm day I will have a carb day and bring cals up close to maintenance.
So please join in on the journey, it is going to be a long but tough one.
I will also be giving away ALLMAX Samples to random posters along the way!
