Hey guys im looking to do my first show sometime next year around the late spring, summer. There are a few NPC shows pretty close to me but i feel id be at such a disadvantage being natural. All of the natural shows are pretty far from me. I live in NYC and most of the natural shows in NY are way upstate near buffalo.

Does anyone compete NPC or would it be pointless and i should look towards a natural show? Also, any advice on a good first show? Thanks!

dude, get in shape, compete in the NPC and find a few natural shows to do and see which you prefer. I know the "natural" ones are sometimes bullshit but you may find some well run shows. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I am going through this exact same thing with someone I am helping out for there first show. He wants to do an untested show in the town he grew up in because of his family and friends being there. So I told him, ok fine, but your doing a natural show within 2 weeks of that show so you can see where you are on a level playing field. I'd suggest the same to you.
