Woohoo, I'm so excited. My starting weight was 147 at 7% bodyfat, measured yesterday. April 28th is the day of the show, I'm hoping I can hit that crazy 4% or even 3% and blow everyone away with my conditioning and posing. If I can compete at around 140, I'll be happy.
So here goes!
I have a very fast metabolism, and my maintenance diet is about 3100-3200 cals per day, with no or very minimal cardio. I've dropped it to about 2800 cals and I'm doing cardio, HIIT on some days and low intensity on others (like leg days). I'm very confident that I can get into very good condition.
As for posing, I've been searching and watching videos of great posing routines, and I've put together what I feel is a good routine. I'll see if my camera has a movie mode and in a few weeks I'll try to youtube it or something.
AAAHhhh I'm so excited, my first show.
I was in a motorcycle wreck almost 7 months ago and lost part of my kneecap and dislocated my shoulder. I couldn't walk at all for a few days, then for about 2 months I hobbled around with a cane, carely able to walk. Now I squat heavy and deep! I got down to about 128 after my wreck. Doing this competition was my goal, sort of like rehabilitation. I'm really excited. I'll post pictures in a day or two, to show my starting condition.
