Not sure about the bf% I had a test and someone tried to tell me I was 12-15% and I laughed. But I weighed 154lbs and I'm between 5`8 and 5`9. Ive gained 18lbs in a week after the last comp was finished so I don't look like I do in the pictures anymore, gonna have to do something about it!

Thanks guys I'm 21 now turning 22 next year, I used dreamtan spray its the same as protan just a different brand, not sure about my stats i know my arms are 16 inch, calves are about 16 aswell, quads were 23 inch I think. The guy on the left doesn't train with me but he trains at the same gym and helped me out with the tan and some posing, goto http://www.worldfitnessfederation.de/nabba/frame1/1_p4_wm_04.htm to see his pic he won mens class 2.

This also might sound ignorant. Does natural mean that the contestant cant use any form of Prohormones or does it just exclude steroids. My reason for saying this is because gastro looks massive. I know its achievable with dedication and i am not saying he couldnt of done wihtout them, but from my stand point and probably just cause i am small he looks like a monster. Yes i know there are bigger guys out there but i would be satisfied if i look like him.

You look good. Are you naturally very lean?

Gastrocnemius
10-25-2004, 11:07 PM
I usually sit on about 10-12% fat since I started eating more to gain muscle I used to be on around 8 normally when I was a bit younger, yes I'm natural i'm only 154 pounds in that picture and someone who wasn't natural did actually get caught out in one of the comps I did. The judges know what their doing it seems.

Man, you look awesome. You chose your parents well and have obviously put in a lot of hard work. Inspirational, to say the least.

thanks people once again its good to hear support from all of you unlike some people in other sites insulting me and calling me a whimp and all that.

Big J

if anyone calls you a wimp then I would like to see what they are themselves. You're a muscular 154 pounds & shredded at that. You could very easily be "bigger" than another guy that weighs 200 if he dont train properly. The way I look at it a shredded 200 pounder is bigger than a 300 pound fatass, although obviously there's an 100 pound difference...

Keep up the good work bro!

Actually ignore those last couple pics, this ones from the IFBB the day before those other ones were taken, after coming 4th I thought screw this and ate burger king afterwards and it looks like it had an effect on me the next day.
