    Want to compete next year

    I am currently 26 years old and have been lifting for years (never have followed a healthy diet) I pride myself in being able to achieve anything I set my mind to. In my last hobby I feel I got as far as I wanted so now it's on to something new. I am currently sitting at 205 5'6" and would love to get down to 185 solid muscle. I am not taking any supplements but am thinking of getting on some sort of fat burning pill any suggestions? Also any help on getting started is greatly appreciated! Will be postin daily.

    I've heard that doin cardio on an empty stomach promotes more weight lose. I've tried doin at least two miles on the treadmill in the morn before work but it feels like I'm starting all over. My ankles start hurting.

    Diet, Coach, Posing Coach. Save your money for those + entry fee & posing suit.

    Do it up man. Do you have a show in mind that you want to compete it? How many weeks out? Do you think you need to build up any areas before you start dieting down?

    I ask all these questions because you want to make sure that you allow for time to diet down without losing too much muscle.

    If you're gonna do it yourself I'd strongly suggest at least getting a posing coach. Post up some pics and maybe we can see where you're at and where we think you should try to get/what areas you need to work on. There is much more to it than just a fat burner and walking on stage if you want to win.

    I want to say that there are recent studies that have crushed that myth. You're just left tired and unable to perform as well for your cardio session.

    Also, when you're getting into those last several weeks you probably shouldn't be doing any cardio as it is a mass destroyer. You'll come in soft/small doing cardio.

    I'd say diet down to 185 or so by October so you can see what you've got and you still can allow yourself to build the areas you need before starting to diet down in February.

    Right now I'd say shoulders, and pecs. Can't tell what your legs look like but your back definitely looks to be a strong point for you.

    You should focus more on your diet. That's more important. I'd continue to lift heavy. Maybe throw one or two days of cardio in your week. Main thing is cleaning up the diet.
