Target weight, does this exists? Colossus 4 4 yearsTamere02 (1474): @Colossus Im confused about what you mean by 'target weight'. You set your target weight to suit your goals. There wont be a scientific weight because there isn't a target weight. Weightclass athlete= weight they have to weigh is the target weight For anyone else there really shouldn't be a target weight, you gain or lose weight until your happy with how you look or strength/ weight ratio or overall strength or whatever your goal is.

Unhealthy cut phase? Beckysweetstuff 12 4 yearseknight (58109): Not needed for thermogenics.

I know it's difficult to wrap your mind around. I get that it's completely new and crazy to hear, but there is no magical, "better" nutrition plan. There just isn't.

JOURNEY TO THE STAGE - LIFT THE RIGHT WAY KPFitness 7 5 yearseknight (58109): There's all kinds of things wrong with your calf post. For starters, you pronounce the "C" in gastrocnemius- it's not silent. If you want people to take your videos seriously, you need to know the anatomy and how to pronounce it. Secondly, the soleus does not simply run up the sides of the fibula and stop- it runs all the way up the fibula (point of origin is actually the posterior upper third of the fibula, in the oblique soleus line,...

I just have a few pointers for this offseason to make next time easier. 1) don't bulk over 200 lbs. You are most likely going to compete in the 160-170's so I wouldnt get any heavier than 200. 2) If you do get up to 200 then I would aim for a 32-36 week cut. This will give you plenty of time to lose the fat without having to...

What are your thoughts? yffuls 4 5 yearskickinchicken (8716): @yffuls seriously dude, what are you doing?
Coming up on my first Comp yffuls 5 5 yearskickinchicken (8716): I'd say 6-8% BF is good for physique. I'd find an experienced trainer to help focus a lot on posing, even just for physique. Because 2 months out is too close to bring up lagging parts and posing technique is going to be your best bet at this point to make certain parts look bigger/proportional. Where's the wheel pics? Not sure how much it matter if you're wearing swim trunks. Guess nice calfs would be a factor.
Few cutting questions leokozian 2 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): No experience in the first 2 but in this one, no mate if u do it correctly and NOT drasticallly you'll be fine.

Contest prep English81 1 5 yearsEnglish81 (1): Hello hope everyone is having a good Saturday, just a question to any female competitors particularly, but men can help, did anyone have any issues with being insecure that when the fat loss happens that the skin may not cling to the muscle as desired?

Should I compete in Physique? KalletSc 27 6 yearsThedude67 (3088): @KalletSc Doing a comp is prolly the best thing you can do at this point. This way you'll be able to get the feed back needed to work on your weak points and become better for the next show. I think you have a great foundation also, competing can only be a positive thing if you go into it wanting to learn and better yourself. Good luck and I'm in for the log, so get to it!

Getting rid of excess water anteis99 10 6 yearsDanimal_88 (9760): agreed, some of its water but you have definitely added fat. gotta get back on the diet and cardio. Should be able to lose any fat gained plus make some improvements by 6/29. Word of advice, never binge after a show if you are still in prep. Its not worth it, you dont have the metabolism for it.

I would trust nothing at it's broscience. -3X

Need HELP peak week Keto!!! Carb load when!! anteis99 3 6 yearsanteis99 (37): @Danimal_88 I feel I look best on the second day after my refeed. I refeed on Friday and by Sunday I look full. Do you think I should load 2 days or 1 day and a half and just throw in the simple carbs on the day of competition. Would you be able to give me an example
When to carb load? anteis99 15 6 yearsanteis99 (37): @the1 looking good bro, that's what I'm hoping for to fill in because right now I'm doing one refeed a day at 600g's of carbs and after the seconds day I look tighter to I'm hoping 2 days of loadin and some simple sugars and carbs the day of it should be where I want to be

Just under 5 weeks out from my first show WhoDat88 20 6 yearsWhoDat88 (136): @danimal_88 yeah I guess it was more of a goal to get to lightweight really. Not too many lightweights cut from 217. I didn't think it was possible and thought I'd come in the low end of heavyweight ((2 classes in novice)) but I'm gonna come in the top of lightweight. Either way I feel good.
Food to have before stepping on stage anteis99 4 6 yearsanteis99 (37): @the1 that sounds like it worked. Going to stack up on those.

Peak week on keto? anteis99 20 6 yearsanteis99 (37): @4real last Friday I had 425g's of carbs which included brown rice oatmeal, sweet potato, and banana's spread out throught 5 meals and in my 6th meal I had 8 chicken wings and about 2 cups of curly fries which I didn't count the macros.i must of had give or take over 500g's on my refeed day. Does that sound resonable or should I try to have more and fill out more?

PHAT Workout up to Comp whilst cutting? 10REPS 2 6 yearsdatabas1c (2188): There are tons of people here that have run a PHAT routine on a cut, and a lot of them even log it. I'd recommend you read through their reports and evaluate for yourself. I personally love heavy compound movements; I'd rather croak than stop deadlifting or squatting. I also hate hypertrophy routines, so I will probably never run phat personally so I cant give you any direct feedback. From my understanding of laynes phat program though, your...

Got a chance to compete in 6 months! ilifthard 14 6 yearshurricane92 (3699): I think you'll do alright for a juniors competition. I've never been in one but I've seen pictures and guys really are not big at all. If you are dedicated, I'm sure you could even place (assuming it is 18 and under).
first contest jaydiddy85 12 6 yearsWinnersNeverQuit (10311): @kickinchicken that's not true, the best way to keep strength on a cut is stuck with your current routine (maybe lower the volume a bit) and keep.lifting heavy as fuck

I can't wait to meet up with him again after I start dieting and can really see what I'm doing. I think by this summer (June bodybuilding show) I'll really have...
plastics jeanaren 10 6 yearsyourdreamsbody (1): Silicone sheeting is the "top of the line" treatment for scar therapy, but is hard to use all the time. Scar creams such as Mederma or Scarguard are much easier to use, and might be good enough. I've written a page about body building tips and scar care - please visit my site to review it. I also have some references as to where obtain the products. Cheers!

Pre-Contest Leg Ayy_Dee_ThaKidd 14 7 yearsNyko (2884): I would eliminate Barbell step-ups add an additional 2 sets of regular squats, also SLDL or RDL whichever you prefer. Don't do both front squats and back squats in same day, you will not have the intensity or strength to hit them both effectively. I would replace with Hack Squat or BB Lunges even. And if you're in a cutting phase or deficit calorie intake at the moment for your next comp, don't expect to be piling on mass to your...
