Fast forward to June 2012 with my first full off season under my belt I can say that everything i've done for the past 6 months has already shown and major changes have taken place. My chest is considerably larger, my arms are much more full and defined, and the overall "X" factor is much more prominent. They told me that I needed to put on more size to compete with the top guys and that i've done. Almost 20 pounds up from show weight and to be honest 10-12 of that weight is muscle. I slowly put on 1-2 pounds a month over the last 6 months and its showing. The place i'm at now compared to last year at this time is a positive step, so much leaner and in better overall shape. This cut leading into the pro show will be a breeze as it's something i've already done.
The next 4 weeks will be an important time for me as I strive to continue to make gains and lean out a bit before I entire full contest prep. Each day I see myself getting leaner and it inspires me to push even harder. This truly is my life and I thank you for taking an interest in it as I will certainly not disappoint you.
