      Your condition is fine, but I think you weren't full. Are you looking for a different strategy for the next shows? How do you feel that due to age the peak week is more complicated and all that?
      Hi Beti, everything is different at my age. The body just does not react anymore like when you were younger. You have to figure out your body again.

      I for example can not get these striations anymore but my body looks more grainy now then when I was young, very strange but it is what it is.

      When I was younger I did the 3 days protein and 3 days loading but that does not work anymore. I get thinner now, so I am not doing it!

      I just continue my diet until 1 day before and then eat more carbs!

            At the recent Jr Nats , a lot of the open, didn't have your arm thickness ...at half your age (or less)
            Hi Howard and many thanks! I did not see anything about the Jr. Nats but if that is true, that is actually funny or sad, depending on how you look at.

                The main reason is you just have good arm development.

                However, since it was my first time seeing in big contest in 13 years, I noticed a "trend" .

                The leg development and especially ham/glute definition was excellent for most top 5 guys in every wt class.
                Back when I competed ; developed -conditioned legs and shredded hams were a lot less common.

                But the overall arm development and thickness was lacking in these same men.
                Plenty of guys had shredded tris that lack size/sweep along with weak biceps.

                Plus, from the back, ripped definition was fairly common in the top 5 guys.
                But wide, flaring lats was LESS common.

                Most guys were able to come in ripped and dialed in , especially the lower body .
                But good posing, big arms and wide lats were a lot less common. No sure why?

                  Bro, keep sharing all this, it is very useful.

                  I'm seeing more vascularitation in my quads as I get older, I don't know if it's a good thing or not, lol.

                  But the body is a bitch, it changes every too often.

                    I am very relieved to learn this even happens to a damn good over 60 bodybuilder.
                    In my case, I no longer respond well to HIT ( high intensity) training routines.
                    I need MORE volume, higher reps , more warm up sets and more machine work .
                    i also need MORE cardio and LESS overall food. Go figure...

                      Hi Howard, yes the body is completely different. This is why I took 1 year to prepare myself! Nothing works the way it used to be anymore!

                      • COPA MEXICO! So far my best shape, hard, round and full. I felt great and knew I would win LOL! There was no over 60 so I competed in the over 50 ( not a big deal)

                        My class was compared and my wife told me that nobody was even close. About 30 minutes later they came backstage and said there was a problem and I needed to

                        be compared with another guy ( just 1) again because they were not sure???WTF I already had a bad feeling now. We never competed in this Organization and I can

                        only warn you guys, they are terrible!!! It is called GBO!! Do not compete with them, they will screw you over bad. After I lost to this Mickey Mouse guy ( pictures below)

                        my wife came running and screaming back stage. I put the 2nd place trophy on the ground and told her that this one is not for me and I will leave it. She looked at me,

                        lifts the trophy over her head and smashes it in 1000 pieces on the ground! The whole backstage area was really quiet! She then screamed, I will not compete with this

                        corrupt Organization ( she signed up for Wellness) fuck them, we are leaving and so we did! My wife is so loyal and great!

                          • I lost against Mickey Mouse, he is not in my league but insulted me afterwards that he can not wait to beat me again. I am not sure in what World

                            will that ever happen again.

                            I compete against him in 2 weeks again, with real judges and at Nabba. All the Nabba judges laughed already at our comparison and said "No way"!awesome2.jpg

                              • Ben, sorry to hear you had a bad experience in your recent GBO contest.
                                You look big and conditioned in the above posted pic. I need some clear pic of the other guy to give feedback on the judges call.

                                Ok, just saw you posted it. Not even close, you got screwed .
                                I'm being 100% honest and don't mince words on this stuff.
