Yesterday was the photoshoots I was dieting and preparing for the last 12-14 weeks. It started out as I transitioned from powerlifting competitively to bodybuilding and just wanting to get leaner before growing some muscle with the new training. I found I needed a target or goal to focus on and I just picked this. Some might remember my story along the way with the potentially fake GH, the fall out with Cris Edmonds and the VA not wanting to address my high blood pressure. Well I finally made it to the end lol.

Here is a preview the photographer from the second shoot sent. I'll get the rest along with the pics and video from first shoot in the gym in a week or two.

I'm not as tight as I was three weeks ago but much fuller. The photographer did a great job. It was a little awkward at first as I've never done anything like this but both of them guided me through it. I learned a lot along the way not just about dieting and training and my physique but mentally, what it takes in this sport and just personal stuff. It really gave me something to focus on strictly for myself and about myself at a time when I needed that.

Calories have now increased strength is progressing leaps and bounds, energy is great and I feel good. Labs this week, PCP with my old good doc instead of the VA to address the BP which I think was never from the gear but actually sleep apnea... so a sleep study coming also. I'll go from there after the doc and labs and look forward to growing.

Now if I could just stop eating so much sushi and cake... 😂

I appreciate everyone who messaged advice or encouragement along the way.

From the gym shoot. That's all. I won't blow this up w anymore pics. It's not that big a deal and I'm no one but a few had messages some support along the way which I was very appreciative of and I worked hard.

Excellent pics.

Note:
If your serious about going to compete I wish you would have dieted down even more for the photo shoot. You need to see how well you can manage the fatigue and hunger of a deep contest prep situation when you are at a point of striating glutes and working to get that last bit of stubborn lower back fat off.

You're 100% right. That was the plan. Hunger I was handling fine. Even after the debacle with Edmunds where he smashed 34% of my cals at once. But the fatigue was terrible after that move. I was falling asleep at work and a total zombie.

There was more to the situation and I ended up not working w him after some advice from people here.

I wanted someone I had a similar personality and mindset to and could have a good rapport and decided Dusty Hanshaw was the right fit and it's been great. We were going to salvage things but I was struggling and decided to reverse a month ago and this is what the result was.

Was the issue the big cut and mismanagement by Edmunds, my inability or lack of familiarity handling the extremes of dieting or both? Idk but you're right I need to be able to handle that if I compete. Idk if I want to or will. This was a good first step I think. I learned a lot about the process, my body and ability to lock into a plan. But next time I will need and want to do better and push harder.
 
You look great and learned some lessons in the process. Plus you learned you have the mental fortitude for dieting down. Congrats to you my man!!!

Man looking great! Great idea with the pics, I might steal it from you!
