    Default Moving Something

    Hello, I hope to do a bodybuilding show (masters) next year spring or summer. I've never done a contest prep, but been lifting forever (gear free). My background is military/corrections so I do more athletic type lifting. When I commit to a contest, I'll switch to a BB routine. 2 or 3 days a week In the place of cardio, I do military mixed martial arts and SAQ work. Another 2 or 3 days a week, I do full body weight training (alt. upper/lower body). The other 1 to 2 days is rest. I'll try to copy from my training journal on another site. I'm 5'5 and 210# (206-214) and 43 yrs old.
