Looking solid man. What weight will you be getting to for the show? Which class are you competing in?

Thanks man. Ok so here's the deal. I was at 204.8 as of Sunday morning, might get down to 200 or less. I am doing the Masters 50+ Division. I am 53 now, 54 in November. This is the only show I am doing. I got involved in, and have been doing, Dorian Yates' DY Academy since he started it in July 2020. I was a whopping 255 back then, got back into shape for a few reasons, mainly to be around for my wife and kids...had kids later in life, they are 11 7 10 now...and didn't wanna be the Dad who couldn't do anything because I was out of shape.

Thanks man, I hope so. I been getting posing lessson's from a guy near me who took 1st and Overall at his comp two weeks ago, he is a kid but huge. The ONLY reason I am doing this show is because during one of my video check in's with Dorain he was all "fuck mate, you look good enough to enter a show if you wanted." and it didn't hit me till about 2 hours later and I was all, "wait, what?" So I said fuck it, let's do it and he and I started working on it.

Hell yeah, good stuff. Especially changing your health for the family. Longevity is more important than anything. I bet that DY academy is cool as hell. He was one of the best. Congrats on your progress so far. Looking forward to seeing more.

It is, I was on the middle plan. I will say though the last month has been disappointing as I have not heard from him, I know he is doing engagements and posting on social media but when I check in on the app he hasn't been responding. It would not stop me from recommending the program though as I have benefitted immensely from it.

Looking awesome! I would not let him not responding get you down. Sometimes they don't respond if everything looks like it is tracking when they get busy.

You say you were 204.8 as of Sunday morning and the show is the 30th. Better to be a monster light heavy weight than a small heavy weight.

Yea the Division I am in is for guys 50 and over and no weight limit so we will see how it goes. I just hope to do well and honestly have no idea where I will place, if at all and even if I don't I can say "I did it."

I mean I know he is busy and all but up until a month ago, he always responded, pretty quickly actually either through the apps chat or sending a vid message and we were doing monthly Skype vid calls to track progress.
