This is always a super show and plan to be there again. I have a few friends competing and others attending, so it will be fun to catch up with everyone.

Going to order mine next week. Peeps- if you havent already, do it soon, You can NOt get them at the show unlike at a lot of national qualifiiers, regional shows and locals. and the Muscle Beach show is not an NPC show- but if you get chance do that one too- tooo much fun to pass up.

You know it would be great if Dave would make an appearance on the Master forum to acknowledge the level of excellence on HIS site. Rally the "team" if you will. He may very well have some potential pros on this forum.

I will be 40+. not sure what weight, will wait...:confused:

As for tanning, Jim Hampton blew the 50s Masters Nats contest in 2004 by walking onstage with no tan at all. I heard he felt it wasn't necessary & the emphasis should be on physique alone, but he looked like a ghost & it may have cost him first place in his class (he got 2nd). The head judge at the end of prejudging lineups literally said, "That's all, men. Please put on a tan offstage." Hampton came back in 2006 with a tan & took the class & got his pro card in the 50s. He did bring an overall package that was better that year, btw.

Mentioned the same to Eric, and don't think he will make that mistake again.

No one was beating Efferding last year anyway, regardless of color, but Eric could have been 3rd with a solid tan.

HeavyDutyGuy
04-29-2010, 03:17 PM
Efferding was just too tough. Take notes guys- powerlifting- 800 deads and squats bench has to be around 600. then used that ungodly strength and high repped it with Flex Wheeler for afew months (ok probaablby had Flex's stash too, but still...) . Got my ass kicke dlast year. Wont make the same mistake again (Attn reviewer for RX- I dont want to read "undersized, conditioning is off"- wont happen next time.. Note- Eric also did powerlifting I thin he had close to a 800 dead-- sense a pattern emerging here?

I totally agree Power lifters make the best BB's My training partner like wise: he stays around 290 offseason and diets to 235-250 squatted 900, deads 800 and I think his bench was close to 600 maybe it was 550 but he does bunch of reps w 405 on the incline still now hopefully we can get him his pro card this year conditioning is the hardest part for you monsters! Hell now that I said that it is the hardest for me too!

Anglican, usually Gary does not start mailing tickets until June. Best to call or e mail him anyway. I send in ticket order by priority mail with tracking, so I can call or check on line to confirm delivery.

Jeff, was looking forward to meeting you and Rita, and feel just as terrible. Maybe one day soon.

True, tickets are sold at the door and is usually not a problem. Definitely not for prejudge. But I think it was 2008, that finals did sell out before the show. So it is a calculated risk.

I began my quest to compete again October 2007. Competed in the NPC Mid-Michigan April 2008, 3 months training then 3 months dieting. I have been attempting to add quality muscle, training through and dealing with multiple minor to moderate injuries.

I begin my prep June 6 for the October 2 NPC Natural Northern Ohio in Lakewood (Cleveland, OH area). Then I plan to reassess training, nutrition, SUPPLEMENTS... and train for 2 years solid before attempting a state level open show in the 40+.

My goal is to compete at the Masters Nationals by age 45.

Best wishes to everyone competing this year. I hope to actually attend this event in 2011. But now it's balls out training plus work for me...

If it doesn't work for you, google "NPC Bodybuilding Division Rules"
I was prepping for the Masters National and didn't find out about this until a few weeks ago. I've decided to do the All Forces Nationals instead.

Last year, Gary shortened the night show routines to 60 seconds, because of the volume of competitors. Far as I know, same for this year. E mail him to be sure, so you plan accordingly.

Hi My understanding is that the 60 sec for the night show on Saturday starting at 5pm is ONLY for the TOP 5, not the rest - is that right?

Thanks, had heard same about the tickets.

Best of luck VMAN.

In night show starting at 5PM, all competitors in a class are introduced, but only top 5 in each BB weight class will pose, max of 60 seconds. In the past with class of 6, all six posed and received trophies. Thinnk that will remain. But 7 or more in a class, it is top 5 only. Class winners in a division (over 40, over 50 etc.) return for comparisons and pose down after all classes in that division have been judged.

THEVMAN
06-15-2010, 12:57 AM
Thanks! I read that in 2008 there were 400+ competitors for Masters Nats and prejudging met at 4pm and got out at midnight - wow - does anyone know if you get plenty of lead time to pump up, I heard the State Calf show went from 8am to 3pm and my friend came in flat with the bad timing and no lead on when he would be judged. I know we have to be prepared food wise, but peeking timing I guess can be a challenge at some shows.

Great, Anglican. I landed in 2nd and 3rd rows last two years. Great view.

Best of luck, Chris D.

In 2008, men's Friday pre judge was at 5pm and I think it ended around 9:30. This year it starts at 4pm. Night show has gone past midnight on Saturday, and over 40 men are the last group to compete. So peaking can be a real problem.

Pump room is small, should have some time to pump up. No dumbbells allowed, have to bring towel or exercise bands for pump up.

No problem, have been to eight of the last nine shows working with different competitors, so I know the drill by now. Will be a fun time.

Let me comment on the quality of the mens Masters competitors at the Nationals. Across the board in the O40s and O50s there is amazing depth in all weight classes. Most other Open shows I have seen in person or on the web pale in comparrison. Yes they have a man here or there that stands out but not like the Masters Nationals. This IS the best show out there. I though the O60s and 70s last year were surprisingly weak after such a show of force in the 40s 50s.

So if you are competing or attending you are in store for long days and nights and a guaranteed Bodybuilding feast of quality muscle.

Tough show. Unless youre going to do the regular Nationals or USA's I dont think youre going to find a much tougher show. Of course that will be part of the fun, beating the best amateurs and being the best yourself... If that isnt motivating, then what is?

Amen, this a very difficult, competitive but also a fun and rewarding and motivational show. I have seen competitors return year after year just to compete.

Chris, you will get through Saturday night. Look forward to seeing you.

Last I know, Rodney Roller is not competing. He decided to wait for North Americans. Not that any of the classes are easy.

This year over 50 will have same classes as over 40 (including welter). The over 50 gets better and more competitive every year. Should be good.

Lightweight:Over 143-1/4 lbs up to & including 154-1/4 lbs

If all of you come in at your best, then you are all champions. Can't control what happens on stage, only yourself. Be your personal best, and that is a victory. The rest is out of your hands.

Should be a very competitive event. look forward to seeing everyone.
