Ok so there is a competition sept 12th this year and If I were to compete I would be competing in the teens 18-19 age class. With a lot of hard training, tan, oil, diet and proper posing would I even have a chance? I really have no idea how competitive these things are.
The event is held by http://www.naturalbodybuilding.com/

The pics are just ****ty cell flash pics. The flash seems to take away definition..

Don't know much about how you would compare to others, I would imagine though that they would probably be more developed. Honestly, you're not very well developed overall imo and still need a lot of work. But hey, give it a shot, you don't have to get top three your first time around.

When is the competition? If you have a few months to build up your everything you might be better off. :X

I realize I have a lot more work to do. But I'm assuming so do other 18 and 19 year olds ill be competing against?

I don't see a reason why you should not compete. It will probably be a good experience and give you a nice motivation as well as an idea where you stand among other people.

Compete.

Agreed. Whats the worst that can happen? You dont win? Think of the tremendous amount of learning you will experience. I have huge respect for anyone that competes...win or lose.

I would say you should compete because even if you lose, you'll become even more determined to win next time.

With enough determination, you can go far.

It really depends. I'm sure there are kids that have been seriously lifting since they were 14, 15, 16 years old (as you can see on this site).

However, as I mentioned, and as others also mentioned, go ahead and compete. What do you have to lose?

I agree with everyone, compete for the experience. You still have until September, and you could make a lot of progress by then. You have a lot of work to do, but if you really want it, give it your all and go for it.

+1 for compete. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. You'll meet tons of new people and know what to expect your next time around.

All right guys thanks. I'll be going on a mini bulk till august. I am currently on no supps but I'm going to be getting on muscle milk, creatine, and carbolin 19. Come august I'll start the ketogenics diet. Hair off tan up and I'm off. Should be a good experience and motivate me even further.
