Great Lakes Iron Man/ NPC...today's performance.

Was super excited, feeling was surreal for first physique comp. Here is where I had a question, stage exit ended with me ending in the middle...and the guys backstage say that's a good thing. I'm a little nervous about the final decision, is this true? Thanks for all feedback.

Post contest: How many stay "shredded" afterwards?

Thread title, being ripped feels good, but staying shredded feels like sh*t lol. If so, for how long do you hold your condition? I'm slowly creeping back up to 10% for the comfort level and continuation of building muscle slowly before next comp in March.
