Wow look at those quads. You looked great. You must've had some serious competition if you came in 4th looking like that.

well, i got 3rd, lol, but not much difference :D

the winner in my class also went on to take the Open win and the overall title. he was a few inches shorter than me and about 10lbs heavier. he looked great and deserved it. I honestly thought I looked better than number 2, but oh well.

Woops, my bad, I could've sworn you said 4th. 3rd, then, either way you looked awesome.

you are huge man! you look outstanding even at a 'chubby' 250 or whatever!!

MichaelKeck

thanks Jedi. Ive made the mistake of bulking whilst not caring how much fat I gain (to an extent) and I wont do it again. a nice dirty bulk might have its warrants here and there, but IMHO a nice clean slow bulk is best (goal dependent too)

I almost skipped over this - "first contest" shots don't often show your level of development. Outstanding muscularity, particularly as noted by everyone, those quads. Your powerlifting focus shows all through your physique. The bodypart lifters can't hold a candle to the results that come from heavy compounds.

Nice work.

nice pics, is there a purpose for the tanning? maybe to hide any stretch marks or something, or is it just nicer to look at?

the tan helps show muscle separation and striations. The lights on stage will also wash you out a lot, so the tan is needed.
