Calves:
Cybex Rotary Calf Machine:

I`m dropping the heavier pressing type exercises and just doing reps in an effort to try to bring in more seperation and shape.

I`m certainly not going to add much mass at this point,so I see no point in it.

This looks kinda`1 wimpy compared to my usual leg day but it was harder than I thought it would be especially as we moved with very little rest between sets..........pretty intense!!.

Saw results and pics, wtf...5th?

The guy who got "1st" looked like a fucking mummy.  Undecided

You were the best up there, good presentation, healthiest looking and posing must have been great too.

I agree and my other pal that did it got 8th..WTF and who did the judging.

Mel Chauncey didn't place well either

Fact: Many/most shows are fixed - particularly smaller ones.

I've been to quite a few shows promoted by gym owners.
In fact, I used to go to one show in particular, in which the members of the promoter's gym consistently win every year in every weight class.

Nothing to feel disappointed about, Wesley.
By this time next year, you'll almost be mod of the training board.
