First of all the show was really small, only like 25 male competitors, in ALL classes including master, juniors and open.

I did the mens open, with a whopping 3 competitors. With myself the only one who was in contest type condition.

Went through the morning prejudging in about 2 minutes lol, it went so quick, i was shocked, i knew i had it because the two guys standing next to me didnt even belong on a bodybuilding stage.

So the posing round ends and they bring all 3 of us out. And my name is announced in SECOND PLACE!!!!!!!!! I think some in the crowd actually boo'd haha, and the guy who won looked suprised.

So a judge runs me down and tells me I had better shape, symmetry, presentation, conditioning, was tighter, but the other guy had "more muscle" ( he also had 15lbs more fat ). So thats why he won. He was also standing on tree limbs for legs and had a spare tire.

So i guess that means i must have really looked like shit or something because the guy who won did.

Im using this as motivation. Im going to eat some good food for the next couple of days, since i have been dieting since MAY!!!!!! But come Tuesday im going to hit it harder than i ever have before.

Shit, Im going to have to hold myself back from going to the gym tomorrow lol, im really THAT motivated!!!!

All in all the dieting and transformation I made was quite amazing, ill have to post some before and afters. But the show part was complete and utter bullshit. How 3 people (judges) can bring me down after 4 months of hard work, that shouldnt happen! And i wont let it happen again !!!

Glen

p.s. I'll try and get some show pics up later. Grin

p.s.s. Thanx for all your support guys, it really did help. ( jims diet was absolutely BRUTAL )
WELCOME TO BODYBUILDING!!!! LOL, Exact same thing happened to me at my first show. I was beat by a guy who was about 5 inches shorts and had the same bf i had in the off season. Thats why this year for the show i purposely came in softer and didn't try as hard. It will be a long long long time before i cut that hard again. I might have to do it if i go do collegiates but for a small show local show you should just enter for fun. Its not worth the effort unless you know you have the size to actually be competitive for the shows overall.

Flex, did your body react unfavorably to eating these things after having eaten so clean for so long?

didnt respond too bad to be honest, had some gas lol, but thats to be expected after not really eating carbs for four months.

But mostly its all water that ive retained. nothing too bad, but my face is puffy, and my hands are a bit swollen. Its crazy though, I went to the gym and had the best pump ive ever had. It actually hurt.

True, Glen looked awesome, especially for his first show. I love his dedication, but you really think he looks like a smaller Flex Wheeler at this stage of his development? Again, no disrepect...

Thanx Big Ant!

I enjoyed food sunday and monday( had some pie and cheesecake ) , then yesterday i cleaned it up pretty nicely, My goal is to stay lean ( where I can see a hint of abs all year long ) and put on some quality muscle ( as much as I freakin can ) , so im taking advantage of this rebound, by eating a lot of good healthy food, and not getting fat.

How much weight have you put on since stepping off stage til now?

I have heard stories of guys putting on 50 plus pounds in as little as a week.... any truth to that?

Do you think you will ever weigh 200+ pounds? Even in the off-season?

im  only up about 15 lbs, and can still see my six pack Smiley

And yea ive heard of guys putting on that much weight too, but i think its idiotic, and it a waste of all of  your hard work dieting down.

And will I ever weigh 200lbs?? Hopefully this offseason I will, and with abs ! Smiley
