Hey guys been lurking for awhile and decided to join in. I'm 54 been training forever but just started competing last year, placing second in both my NPC events. This year Im coming hard, no more seconds for me! I hated that feeling.
9 weeks out right now from Steel World in Mobile. Then on to Nationals in Pitt in July. More updates later.

I imagine I will stay Heavyweight. I am 207 at 3-4% BF right now. Last year competed at 198.5, but I have added about 5 lbs of muscle this year so hopefully it will hang around the 202-203 mark when I drop water.

WTF, 3-4% BF that's incredible.

I try and stay lean all year so that's it not hard to get shredded at the end.
I have been dieting for 7 weeks on 2 dozen egg whites w broc. (12 in the morning and 12 at nite before bed) and 12-15 chicken breasts a day. (1) serving of oats in the morning and 1 sweet potato pre training, that's all the carbs I used and bascially no fats except fish and flaxseed oil supps.

I just in the last week added in 3 servings of 1 cup of brown rice to fill back out a bit and then I will drop the rice in about 4 weeks.

I started a new thread to log my training and diet techniques as I approach the Nationals. This is a re-post of yesterday training just to get in the correct thread.

Today, I consider a rest day since I am participating in Mike Horn's pre-contest seminar tomorrow which is freakin brutal. I did one a couple months ago just after gall bladder surgery and it just about killed me. He likes 100 rep sets of leg work if that gives you a clue to what this is about. After we train like a death march for an hour we will work on posing for 45 minutes.

Today, I did a 32 mile cycling ride for cardio, later I will do some lite calve, hamstring work and blast the abs again, then maybe one more cardio tonight.

Here's yesterday's training
