Apr 30, 2016 What's up guys and gals. Ive been lurking and not posting much lately. I am hoping to enter a physique show in September. I am around 17% I'm guessing. I also have a professional conference at the end of June that I would like to be seeing good abs for. I will take weekly progress pics. These pics are completely cold with a little ab tightening. I literally walked in the bathroom from sitting on the couch. I'm the softest and least muscular version of me that I've been in years. Using injuries as an excuse to be lazy and take days or intensity off more than necessary. I've also been downright horrible on the nutrition side of things Please give me all the constructive criticism and advice you care to offer. I have put in some reading and have a decent understanding of the final cut requirement and basic show prep. That said, I am a complete and total newbie to the world of competition. Let me know if you think I'm even able to do a show by then. I will reschedule if necessary. I am 6 feet tall and started at 238 lbs on Monday and am 225 lbs today, 5 days later. Most of that is simply water weight from dropping my carbs so low. I had been eating anything not glued down for weeks. I tested myself using ketosis strips and am currently in moderate ketosis. Slight headache and a little brain fogging, but that should go away by next week from what I understand. Eating: 3500 cals 200 ounces of water 382 grams of protein 44 grams of carbs (only 7 sugars) 191 grams of fat (no trans) Supplementing: Multivitamins Calcium and vitamin d Magnesium Potassium 3 different training sessions daily, 7 days a week: 1 1/2 - 2 hours of weight training 30-45 minutes of light cardio 30 minutes alternating calves and abs And posing starting next week every day. Thanks everyone.
