    It seems appropriate that I should introduce myself.

    I am 23 years old and have been training for 6 years. I did my first shows in 2005: the Chico Show (non-sanctioned local show) in which I won the overall and, one week later, the NPC Contra Costa in which I placed 5th as a middle weight. (I dieted 2.5 weeks for these two shows and at the time I thought this was enough!). In 2006 I did the NPC Contra Costa again and placed 2nd to the eventual overall winner, and later that year I did the NPC Team Universe in which I placed 2nd. Finally this year I did the Team Universe and again took 2nd. Now, itís back to off-season and Iím 345 days out of the 2008 Team Universe.

    Iím looking forward to this thread; thanks for starting it, Dave.

            Layne, haha, I don't think so; hopefully this thread will be half as interesting and informative as yours.

                  The basic idea is high protein, moderate carbs, low fat. For the 2007 Team Universe, I started 14 weeks out with about 3,900 calories. I gradually reduced calories each week (by about 100-150 calories) until I hit my low point, at 2 weeks out, of 2,400 calories.

                  Here was the basic structure of my diet:
                  MEAL#
                  1) High GI Carbs, Protein

                  TRAIN
                  Pre: Dextrose, Whey
                  Mid: Dextrose, Whey
                  Post: Dextrose, Whey
                  25 min post: Dextrose, Whey

                  2) 1 hr post: High GI Carbs, Protein

                  3) 2 Ĺ hr post: High GI Carbs, Protein

                  4) Low GI Carbs, Protein

                  5) Low GI Carbs, Protein, good fats

                  6) Low GI Carbs, Protein

                  7) Low GI Carbs, Protein, good fats


                  Towards the end of my diet I got protein from whey, tuna, and egg whites; while carbs came from dextrose, rice cakes, and plenty of delicious broccoli.

                    Close. Here is what I did (pre-judging on friday, finals on saturday):

                    I made sure to drink at least 3-3.5 gallons (though sometimes I drank more if I wanted since crystal light tastes great; especially when dieting) throughout my contest prep until the last week. From Saturday to Wednesday of last week, I drank 5 gallons. Thursday (1 day out) ~1.25 gallons; Friday ~1 gallon (about 50 oz before stage, about 80 after), Saturday ~60-70oz before stage (rehydrated afterwards!).

                      You look awesome man, can't believe the cuts in that back.

                      Do you have your routine posted anywhere? Curious what it is, how much cardio you do, etc.

                      Good work !

                            Fantastic shape and separation. Glutes and hamstrings are off the charts.

                              These poundages are on good days (but not records). All in a 4-6 rep range.

                              Bench: ~315
                              Squat: ~375
                              Triceps extensions: ~160
                              Barbell curls: ~165
                              Stiff-legged deadlifts: ~415
                              Barbell Rows: ~335


                              As for the boost, I usually drink coffee before training.
