    Lightbulb Northern Colorado Bodybuilding Results

    As many of you know I competed in the 2004 Northern this past Saturday, April 3rd.

    I weighed in at 179lbs as an Open Light-Heavweight. There were 7 in my weight class, and they did not even place me in the top 5.

    In my opinion I should have lost more weight and entered as a Middle-weight (the cut-off is 176lbs). Also, I was not cut enough, very lean, but I lacked the "ripped" look that was needed, I looked "flat". The competition was stiff, as expected, it always is at this particular show.

    I have watched the pre-judging video several times, it was definitely close all around. I am not going to make any excuses or say I deserved to be placed higher. If that is how the judges saw it I am sure they were correct.

    I am not upset in the least though. I am now even more motivated! I plan to compete June 26th in the Colorado State Championships, another tuff show, and it's a national qualifier.

    I will take the next week off from training and of course from dieting, and then back to the game plan. Which is to compete as an Open Middleweight at this next show, and get leaner.

    I posted some pics, I apologize at the quality, I had to extract them from the video, my wife could not take pics cause she was video taping for me which I felt was more important to get an accurate assement of myself, my stage performance, etc.

    I was very happy with my overall stage performance. I came off confident, no shaking, no cramping, that is one aspect that I was 95% satisifed with.

    I wanted to post the entire pre-judging video here, but I am having trouble getting a decent copy on to digital media.

    I should have some better pics in a few days and if so I promise I will post them. I have nothing to hide.

    thanks, appreciate it.

    my wife thought I would be all upset at my placing, or lack of placing, and the first thing I said was nope, I just need to find out what went wrong so I can fix it for the next show in 3 months!

    Prince you look good, but IMO you may have smoothed out a lil too much in these pics. Did you do a carb deplete and load? That or you were holding onto a lil too much water. Was this the prejudging or night show?

    You've got great size! Play with your last week a lil more before the next show and you should kick some serious

    thanks, I agree, a week before the show I did not look as flat.

    I did increase carbs thursday and friday, by about 150 grams, that may have caused me to smooth out.

    I think next time I will just leave carbs alone completely, I have always been a bit sensitive to carbs and water weight, I had the same damn problem 10 years ago.

    I have the same problem when I do a deplete and load with carbs. My body tends to hold onto all the water that I am trying to get rid of. I did that for three figure comps, the last one I did I only played with my sodium intake and water the last week. Left carbs the same the whole time. Looked alot fuller doing so.

    You have time before your next show to play with it. Good luck!

    Hey Prince, good job getting up there and competing, that in itself takes loads of dedication and hard work.

    I'm glad your attitude is to make yourself better and learn with experience... I think it'll help you alot in the next show.

    Have a good week off!
