    2/17: 196.8 lbs BF (calipers) 2.4%, BF (handheld) 10.2%

    BF and weight didnt come down much at all. however I did have a cheat meal last week and also stopped with taking the fat burner. Plan is to start carb cycling this week and hopefully lean up a little more. Then the week following I will get back on the fat burner for my last 3 weeks.

    2/24: 194.2 lbs, BF (calipers) 2.2%, BF (handheld) 9.8%

    This was after 1 week of carb cycling and no fat burner. (going to run FB the last 3 weeks right into show day) Weights finally started moving again. Going keep everything the same with macros the next week. Just need to keep drying out!

    Oh, and i also finally shaved my beard after about 1.5 years of having one. Defiantly a different look.

    3/17: 189.4 lbs, BF (calipers) 1.4%, BF (handheld) 8.4%

    Small changes but had alot more food this week. Still feel like im getting a little more dialed in every day. Cant beleive its the final week already!



    Abs have defiantly improved a lot. My plan for peak weak came from Layne Norton's new contest prep e-book. Basically keeping water, and sodium the same. Took the averages of my carb cycling macros to get these:

    Days out---Protein Carbs Fats
    8 to 10-----250--------165--------35
    6 to 7------225--------236--------50
    5-----------200--------589--------80
    4-----------212.5------448.4------65
    3-----------225--------306.8------50
    2-----------237.5-----165.2 ------35
    1-----------250-------165-472----35-65
    Show Day-175--------531-------- 72.5


    Cant wait to see how i look once i fill out on carbs. going to be a good week and looking forward to stepping on stage!

    3 days out now. Starting to taper back on the carbs now. My body defiantly enjoyed it. Weight has also maintained right around 190 in the mornings. Thinking I will keep my carbs on the lower side for friday and then make sure i carb up hard the morning of the show. Here is a good leg shot from some posing practice.

    Sorry for not getting these up sooner. Here are a few stage shots. Ended up getting 2nd place in both Classic and men's physique. Woke up show day at 188 lbs. Overall i just need to work on my proportions and getting a smaller waist while growing everywhere else. I do feel like i could have dried out a bit more too, but still happy with how i looked.
