Default Bodybuilding competions

Well, about 2 months back I wanted to do something that will give me more discipline(since I was off and on with my workout routine) so I decided to tell my friends and family that I will be doing a bodybuilding competion in about 8 months.

The reason I did that was basically for motivation to get me back into the gym and start training again. And I am not a quiter

I recently got out of the Marine Corps and started doing the on and off thing with going to the gym and training.

Well in 2 months so far I have lost almost 10 pounds 215 to 206 not trying to but it just happened with my diet and workout routine ( I am actually in the bulking phase not cutting phase) but its been fat disappearing not muscle. I am still far far away from my goal but I am surprised at how much better my clothes feel and I am not ashamed of my body anymore haha.

I do have before pictures and I will have after pictures too. So I will show you guys that after the competion(in which I will be in the best shape of my life)

Has anyone done competions at all? Just looking for some advise. I recently just joined the bodybuilding.com forum (let me tell you soooo many people on there but not willing to help like here.)

Sounds pretty cool. Wish I had a body that I could be confident about and show others.

I'll put more time into looking this over when I'm not at work. But the best place I found was www.bodybuilding.com Great place. Helped me a lot.

I am far from a body builder as you can get. LOL But I have enjoyed lifting weights and currently do cardio 5 days a week in a gym.

Are you doing 2 a day routines and working each muscle group three times a week?

Do you use a 12 week cycle to keep your muscles surprised?


Sounds like your body fat is down to 4%. If you go lower you really need to consult a Nutritionist that understands body building

i wish i could get into something like that. i used to be in great shape.

now its hard to get back into the rutine of going to the gym. i know once i get a full week in ill be go and wont have a problem but every time i go i over do it. and end up not being able to walk/ move. for a week. even with this iv been running with a couple of friends almost every day.

and i have the motivation of trail riding season comming and i will not let my friend keep beating me on the trails. and volley ball season at my buddies boat.


but good luck to you.

I wish I was at 4% More in the teens right now. When I started I was at 19% 2 months later I dont know. I do 2 a day on monday wednesday friday but, most of the time my heavy lifts are 4 NIGHTs a week 1 1/2 each night. In the morning I only do small muscles (formarms neck abs ect)or aerobics for 30mins thats all the time I have in the morning 5:00am

I did look for a online nutrientist today send out an email to a guy already.
