Really good for me to read a report from a beginner, if I compete one day then it'll be good to know all the mistakes I'm likely to make (things like not knowing the rules inside-out, being too nervous, etc), so thanks for that!
Planned the next one yet?
this is a good one. http://articles.elitefts.com/training-a ... ting-meet/
Biggest thing I'd say is don't bother trying to make weight for the first comp. Just go in and make your light opening lifts and then have fun from there on.
edited to add: not sure about the next one but there will be one some time next year. Need to sit down and write new program for myself. Will be focused on adding mass.
edited to add: best thing about the comp honestly was weigh in where I got to see that everyone else's has a freaky looking chest that sticks out and it's not just me
The power moobs had been the main reason i was cutting i think.
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?
