I started in March and aiming for my first Amatuer Masters competition
this November. I have started with my first day of workout up until
approx 2 weeks ago. Went from 170 to 195..now cutting up and likely
wil end up at 165-169 for the lightweight group.

My stats at the beggining:
Bench 185x5
Squat 250x5
Deadlift 225x5

Now:
Bench 315x3
Squat 450 x2
Deadlift 550 x2
Shoulder press 180x4

Measurements at start:
Weight 170lbs
Bi-15
Chest 38
Quads-23.5
Calves-14.5
Waist 34

Lately at the start of cut and carve 3 weeks ago
Weight 195lbs
Bi-16.75 Pumped at 17.25
Chest 43 Pumped at 45
Quads 26 Pumped at 26.75
Calves 15.75 Pumped at 16

Since 3 weeks ago (no photos available yet-to come)
Bi- 16.25
Chest 42
Quads 25
Calves 15.5

I am looking for advice from guys and gals who have been through
competitions who can provide solid sound experienced advice to me
for dieting and lifting so that I do not loose too much if any muscle. I have 11 weeks left to complete preparations. It has been suggested I should end up placing 1-3 place based on my overall proportions in the mens light weight masters division. (I am over 40).

My diet currently consists of:
7 MEALS at 50 grams of protein per:
Chicken, white fish, turkey, leavfy vegs and brocoli along
with isopure protein low carb drinks as supplement meals (4)
Almost no fat except Flax seed oil.
I do take LIpo 6 and fat thin.

I am posting progress photos to this page..all photos were taken "at rest" comments are welcome:

Excelent job man you are looking great nice cut work, and good quality pictures, I'd say alittle more cut and you will look amazing, Last can we get some back shots? maybe some double Bi's but other then that your doing better them most everyone that posts pictures, nice work man keep it up!

You should start a journal. We could use more pre-comp journals here. Check out Yobrickwall's journal. He is prepping for a show now.

Thank for the compliments...I think the weak points are
hamstrings/calves and some back work. I am an ectomorph
which means for every pound I gain I have to sweat 5:)

Also I have a few back shots..they're quite weak looking part camera
part me. I am working with a pro builder as of next week who will help
me with the posing to bring out what I have.

Over the next few weeks I'll post more photos..maybe some taken
outside on the beach with better natural lighting. Of course there
will be photos from the competition which I have heard is pretty tuff.

Aside from the worlds Masters Natural in New York I will compete in June 07
here on my home of Grand Cayman in the worlds Natural. Where I hope to
have put on more beef on the weak spots.

I need real life benchmarks aside from my personal mentors of Frank Zane and Clarence Bass, which is why I am in here trying to hook up with similar people.
Your honest input is most appreciated!

I looked for Yobrickwalls' journal but could no
locate it..could you pass on the link please?

My only comments are on your strength as I dont know and dont care about bodybuilding.

Are you using any kinda gear???

I mean those are some very VERY impressive gains for a year let alone 5 months. Have you trained before and have just recovered alot of lost strength???

Its very hard to swallow that kind of transformation, in that amount of time.

Having said that, your genetics must be freakin insane

You are welcome to your reservations...but I have no reason to
exagerate as I am more interested in the art of body building than
the powerlifting aspect:)
I am 43 years old as well but no one believes I am older than 30.

However I am not bosting I have played with weights and martial
arts for years without knowing what I was doing. I have always
had a very high strength to weight ratio. The only real reason I
have made any optical gains is due to the instruction of a pro natural
body builder named Xavier DíSouza, you will find him listed on this
site http://www.inbf.net/. He and I train 6 days a week..truth is
I don't see the lifting as all that impressive mostly because there are guys 10 years younger than I that train in powerlifting whom I see daily and whom can lift much more than that.

I could deadlift more if I hadn't wrecked my index finger on my left
hand during a shark diving accident last year.

As for gear I do use a hook glove for the left hand for lifting..I also
take creatine which does make a difference, and I always wear a back
belt.

Thank you for the compliments.
