Update:
Day 3 of low carbs on my carb cycle.  Crashed really hard just before i was going to train.  Got really dizzy and it felt like someone was stabbing me in my ribs and it was coming out the other side.  Ended up having to sit down, i could feel an area in my back begin to tighten up. It hurt more during each breath.   I drank a carb drink and eventually the discomfort died down as my blood sugar levels came back up.  Never had anything like this before.  had me a little worried for a minute!

What age did you start lifting weights? How long have you trained for competitive bodybuilding?

  The difference between the British and the USA Open is not the availability of pro cards it's of the quality of BB. A 6th placed American BB could enter the British and win, that is what I meant. Yes you guy's did produce one good BB Dorian Yates who won 6 sandows 3 of which he deserved.

Natural or otherwise... and, I realize that bodyweight can be overrated, as the mirror is most important...but what would be around the highest ideal bodyweight that would be like to show up on stage at a bodybuilding show?

If you mean how much can i weigh, then 80kgs or 176lbs is the limit.  I'm 80.4kgs.  I think i need to lose another 3 kilos (6.6 lbs) minumum.  probably a lot more.

Im just focusing on the Finals right now.  Ideally i'd just like to look the best I ever have.  Then i know regardless of anything else i busted my balls and diddn't waste my life since feb, prepping for a show to half-ass it.  A high placing finish would be nice too Grin

Ok I had to take these with my Camera phone.  The lighting is much better than in my kitchen.  I didn't intentionally cut off my calves, there was just limited amount of room. I'm not hiding them in my other photo's. Wink
Hope to get the mandatories up in the next few days.

Alot of improvment in very short time! looks like you're not 'behind' anymore.

My carbs were at about 150g.  I was having to do alot of physical activity I wouldn't usually have done.  I had only recently cut my carbs that low and I guess my body wasn't used to it.  Hence I got a bit woozy etc.

Thanks mate.  If i can make more improvements like in the last 2 weeks then I should be very happy with my final condition.
Everything is getting pretty hard though (not that it wasn't already).
Almost cried earlier when i spilt about 1/3 of one of tomorrows meals on the floor. Cry

same as me pretty much, i'm on 100-150g off-on days, i haven't got sick like that now, but i'm not very active outside cardio/gym.
In the past when i've done lowcarb and gone a long time without a high day, i have crashed and got sick, but haven't had a stabbing pain like you describe. The high day makes it so much easier, but the last couple of days of the 6 day low carb cycle are pretty brutal.

I must say you really picked up the paste lately, but i am not surprised, bodybuilders are fearless, good luck.
