Devil's Plaything's first BB-Comp...

Postby Devil's Plaything » Wed Oct 20, 2010 8:52 am

... didn't go as well as planed ;) I aimed for the heavyweight-class but dropped into middleweight in the last days. The middleweight class was insanely good and I only made sixth place :( (so no medal or trophy or anything)
None the less I was in awesome shape and I'm quite proud of my discipline and everything.

So here are some pics and videos:

no problem buddy, was watching them at work but then my cube mate started giving me funny looks. Might have to watch them in the privacy of my own house. Your looking good, clean shaven and tanned!

How much weight did you loose to get to the medium weight?

mate, i didnt reallise this was your first comp! I thought you were a seasoned veteran!

Its not only about the end result, but also about the journey. Could you please write a bit about your pre comp preparations, the diet and training? Would be awesome to read.

And hey, well done for stepping up and facing that competition. Ok you placed sixth, but it is not about placings, but about who you face - 6th in one field is better than 1st in a comp where you are the only person in the category :D Or just facing easy opponents. People too often stare at titles and podium finishes (we tend to do that too in the "vegan athletes" listings i think) rather than actually checking what kind of competition the athlete has faced.

Good work mate, looking fucking ripped in the pics! Other than that, i am as ignorrant as they come so cant say anything :D

20kg, that is a lot of weight to lose no wonder you look so ripped. How is your strength?

Are all the people on stage in your so division, so you came 6th out of them?

sure, I'd love to, as soon as I find some time and my brain is used to carbs again :lol:

Now who would do that??? :lol:

Pretty much gone! :oops: Hopefully it comes back fast... especially pressing stuff has become insanely difficult for me.

Yes, exactly! :) The guys who came in 1st and 2nd looked incredible... they definitely deserved their titles. But I think 5th place could or even should have been mine... oh well ;)

Congrats on the competition, judging but what I saw at VF week you put a lot of hard work into this. What do you think cost you 5th place?

The goddamn light on the side of the stage where he was standing. I guess it's called bad luck.

It was actually pretty close between him and the guy right next to him and we thought that he had a serious chance for a place in the finals but the judges didn't share our opinion.
