    What's your age/height/weight and what Class/Weight do you compete at (or hope to).
    What shows are you gonna do?

    45yrs old 5'7" I'm sitting at a slightly out of breath 218lbs planning on a 190lbs LHW. Did my first LHW at 186 last year cause I couldn't get to MW anymore. I've got my wife's season mapped out and will prep around hers so prolly do a July show (South Jersey Championships or Muscle Beach).

    Big and hairy at the moment, lol. I probably wont get the urge to do anything till it warms up a bit here. 54 years old, 5'10, 222 pounds. Probably cut to around 190, but be in the grandmasters so weight doesn't matter. Or I might take the entire year off and just work on size. Hell I don't know what I'm doing yet, lol.

    Good luck to you and your wifey bro. You two make a hell of a team!

    Good thread Mike.

    I am thinking about sitting this year out. Will be the first time in 20 years I have not competed. "Might" do an amateur Strongman, or was even eyeing up that classic division of Bodybuilding for Hartford Europa. Not gonna pressure myself. Way too busy with life. If I compete, I won't put in full effort. Nowadays when I compete I find that I go to enjoy myself and spend time with the crew and meet people. I don't have the drive I used to, at least for now. Still enjoy being as strong as possible.

    ^^ will follow to see who else is competing ^^
