View Full Version : Big 4-0 approaching, want to enter first competition in/around Houston, TX

03-17-2016, 10:55 PM
I turn 40 on July 3rd, and I feel the need to do something big prior to that. What better than get into the best shape of my life? Right now I'm 5'9", 170lbs, at around 17% bf. I'd like to enter a Men's Physique competition in/around Houston, TX, sometime near & prior to my 40th bday. That would give me 3 months from now to get into shape, I think I'd look pretty good at 150 @ 8% bf or so.

This is the competition I'm thinking of signing up for:

The Adela Garcia Classic in Austin, TX on Sat, June 25th, 2016, Men's Physique Division, Novice category

1. Is there another competition I could enter around that time in Houston?
2. I like the "Abercrombie" look -- I think then that the Men's Physique Division is the right one for me, is that right?
3. Is the Novice category the correct one for me? I am 39, and have never been in a competition before

Thank you for y'all's help!
