For my first BB show I spent at least an hour a day on posing. You need to make it a priority especially for it being your first show...

Good advice here, learn to hide your weak spots, balance everything, and emphasis the strong points in each pose. Posing is tough work

I think to many people use to much weight when working back---bringing in the biceps and forearms to take on the load
try to pull from the elbows---think of your hands as just hooks

focus on the feel of the lat
when u pose do the shoulder roll over ----which I learned from watching the man Bruce Lee

boy he had so Lats!!! damn wings!!!

Yo @1bigun11 !! I think I cut too quick. I hit a low of 180 and was feeling small...Now I'm trying to maintain 185 while whittling the bf down. Feeling pretty good though. Very veiny, 8 pack fully there without flexing. shoulder/quad striations. I'll see if I can get some pics for the 2nd session this evening.

Looking good, Joe!

I see you finally turned to the dark side.
Yep I've finally arrived haha. It's been a long time bro . How've you been? still business as usual over there?


In regards to the dieting, as I've mentioned I'm doing my own prep and I cut too quick. I dropped weight and size and where I wanted to be bf% wise but not size wise. I was flat and small. (around 2000 cals, 260g protein/130g carbs/70g fat). was down to 181lbs from 197 in 8 weeks.


So...I slammed in:

400+g of carbs (3700 cals total). Next day...
300g Carbs (3300 cals total),next day...
200g+ carbs (2900 cals) and now...
160g carbs (2900 cals) sitting at 184lbs

Everyday 2 gym session split into 30minutes cardio 15 incline (maxed) 2.8 speed (60 minutes total and 400-500 calories burned.

My dilemma now is that I can tell the bf % went up, obviously but I've filled out to feeling good about my size again.
My stomach was feeling nearly paper thin but now it's IDK 3-4cm
Waist is looking thicker too so it's fucking my mental up.
Been hammering shoulders/lats/calves/tris and they're feeling full.

My game plan is to hit 2700 cals or less today (50% protein, 30% fat, 20% or less carbs)
2500 Saturday
2300 Sunday
2100 Monday
2000 Tuesday
1900 Wednesday
1800 Thursday-Saturday
Sunday start of peak week...

after reading @mikern on peak week I'm thinking I'll load carbs back in Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday?
This is all really just huge experiment really lol
