Well I am pretty much over my cold now and this morning I weighed in at 208.8 lbs so that’s down from last Saturday’s weight but up from Monday’s 207 lbs. I am hoping for an increase of about a half a pound increase this coming Monday. If I can keep gaining a half pound per week I should be about 210 lbs the final Monday before I start my prep.

My chest definitely seems to be growing as are my arms so I am really feeling that I will be in a great spot starting my prep. I want to be competitive as I am not just doing this for the experience. Time will tell how well I do but I feel I have a solid base on which to compete and I am extremely pleased with what I have been able to accomplish with a years worth of solid training. I just need to focus on coming in as ripped as possible and with Layne in my corner I am pretty confident I will nail my prep. I need to take more pictures for Layne so will be posting those up tomorrow.

  1. Hi VG,

    Just out of interest. What is your projected final weight range on contest day? and what is your height?

    Good luck!

    Kind regards, Graham

    • Hi Graham,

      I have yet to discuss contest prep with Layne as we have not entered that phase yet. I think Layne may have a ball park number but ultimately it how you look that matters most and what you judge by. I don;t have to make a certain weight or anything so I just need to focus on coming in as lean and ripped as possible. In my head I am thinking 180 to 185 lbs at 5′ 11″.

      • Hi Vanguard,

        You are focussing on the correct goals, ie. getting as lean and ripped as possible whilst still looking good.
        Just out of interest 180/185lb was the figure I had in mind for you considering your weight and how you look at the moment.

        Good luck!
