   Cheers guys , My legs aren't really that big but do tend to stay in a fairly lean state year round.
I do think the pics are a little flattering , but I try to get comparison by way of similar lighting etc, each time.

   Thankyou , T.

I'd agree with what everyone else has said: you're in a really good position to do a comp. There are absolutely no concerns about carrying enough muscle - you do.

Your legs are a stand out body-part (rest is all very good) and your condition for 'off-season' puts you in a great place. In terms of improvement, perhaps upper chest area would be an area to focus on?

Turpin (I keep writing Turnip) you look ace, just keep it steady and don't do anything crazy and you will come in very well indeed. Exciting!

Agree about posing, it would be a massive shame to let your physique down just through lack of knowledge/practice - can you get along to any of the clubs or meets? Invaluable to get feedback and suggestions on posing.

  Thankyou Nic , I will certainly look to getting as much advice ( first hand & hopefully by the forum ) as things move forward. 
   LOL , Altho you say " dont do anything crazy " ,  after reading thru a lot of the posts on nutrition I have already been looking at changing my eating plan around a bit to a more balanced approach.

   Until now my diet was as follows;

    My diet is that of high fat/protein & low carb for 5 days ( mon - fri ) , then 2 days ( sat/sun ) of high carb eating.

    A typical daily menu for me is;

     Breakfast ; 3-4 egg omelette with bacon & cheese.

     Lunch; Mackerel salad or 2-3 eggs mashed in butter.

     Tea meal; steak or salmon or pork loin served with greens ( & a glass or 3 of red wine )

     Snacks; almonds or hard cheese.

    The above provides me with an abundance of energy ( by way of fats ) & has kept my body composition & appetite within manageable levels , I dont know ( but contemplating ) if changing to a higher carb approach & caloric restricted regime would be better.

If it int broke don't fix it. You look good as you are so not so sure that completely changing your diet would be a good move.

Agree with Rich. Only need to reduce fat levels and with a long time to go and not a huge amount of work, it can be done slowly.

If current diet is maintaining how you currently are, look to either add in a little bit of cardio or maybe make a SMALL alteration perhaps with a food choice snipping.

So why in the world would you want to change it?  Smiley

   Cheers guys ,  Ive eaten this way ( high fat / low carb ) for so long that I got thinking `perhaps a change/tinkering would be of benefit`. But then perhaps not ! LOL

    Thankyou , T.

Hi T, thought I'd respond to your post here rather than carry on hi-jacking Glens journal. Those lifts are awesome pal for anyone let alone for a 75kg lifter. Shame about your injury, it sounded very nasty. Glad to see that it hasnt stopped your lifting - clearly from those recrnt pictures. You should definately have a go at natural bodybuilding as you'd do very well indeed Smiley

  Cheers Colin ,  I was really gutted & depressed back then , as powerlifting was such a big part of my life since late school years , and finding something you have a natural ability for it brought about an inner confidence that manifested into other facets in life . I still ( always ) contemplate giving it a try again , but ( much like giving bodybuilding a try ) I dont know if I'm kidding myself and simply setting myself up for another confidence shatter-er.
  I often set myself up little goals in other lifts and mimic the type of cycle that I would have used for the powerlifts ( last year it was breaking the 500lb barrier for 10 reps in the belt squat ) , it gives a good feeling of self achievement , but other than that ( being very competitive ) it can at times feel that I train for nought , hence the bodybuilding thing.
