Hey guys.  I don't post here that much, mainly because I don't always have anything to add that hasn't been said already, but now that i'm 5 weeks out i figured id share some pics etc.  Maybe it will help keep me focused on the goal at hand.
A bit of background info:
Im 25
5ft8 on a good day
Been bodybuilding 5 years with a year off last year to persue powerlifting.  I won a british title and came 2nd at 3 national level comps then rounded out the year by trashing my shoulder and limping to a 3rd place finish in the world single lifts.
Currently 81kgs and dieting for the British finals (equivalent to the USA's I guess).  I'm doing the U80kg intermediates.  it's a class for guys who have never competed in a final before.
I realise for 5 weeks i'm behind in my conditioning.  I'm currently pulling out all the stops to try and rectify this for the end date.  Fingers crossed.

these were taken the week before my qualifier, so ideally I would like to surpass this.

Great genetic bone structure, mesomorph, wide clavicles, narrow hips, not behind by much on conditioning maybe a week or 2 but could easily make up for it, 5 weeks is still good time, look great, good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement guys, i'm sure those of you who have competed know how much of a boost a simple positive comment can make.  Keeps you going on the bad days.
As of today i'm 4 weeks out.
Booked my hotel for the contest so thats one less thing to worry about now.  did about 9-10 miles on my bike today for AM cardio.  It's amazing how fit you get precontest, i was struggling to do 5 miles when i started!

very true about how fit you get, in the beginning walking on a treadmill at 3.5 my heart rate would be 120 easily. By the end (about 16weeks later ) walking at 3.5 would barely warm me up

Well i start off with moderate protien, high'ish carbs and moderate fats.
As the diet progresses i lower the fats and carbs.
Right now im on zero fat for 4 days of the week and about 40g on the other 3 days.  Carbs are now cycled

very good structure. if it wasn't for that english channel chest gap, you would hit 10s on the symmetry.

but carry on, it's not an impediment.

It's been said already, but "good structure" were the first words that popped into my head when looking at your 5 weeks pics.  Your other pics are great also!  Have a great show.

FIRST OF ALL, the British is not the same is the USA!!!!!!!

   You look descent, but your genetics suck!!! I've seen people work out for less the 5 years and look a million times better then you. If you are doing this as a hobby all the power to you but if you have aspirations of becoming a successful pro you have no chance.

Well to address your two points.
How can the British not be classed as the same as the USA?  Both are the national championships with the winner recieving their IFBB pro card.  I seem to remember a certian guy winning the British then winning a few Olympias, name escapes me though....

My genetics are what they are, if i could change them id be 6ft 5 and trying to make it as a pro wrestler Grin  But I can't, so I work with what I have.  Congratulations on seeing people with better genetics than me, who have done more in a shorter time.  No matter how good you are there is always someone better.
Just have to do the best with what you have.

Pics updated tomorrow.
