Thanks everyone for the well wishes.
So I'm happy with how I looked tonight. I improved a ton from my last show and, I know we're our own worst critics but, I looked better on stage then I ever have in my mind. So, for this it's a win and that's what I set out to do. Just be better. Mission accomplished.
In open bodybuilding the guy who beat me deserved to. He was thicker and more complete from the back. My lower half was better imo other then the glutes and lower back and waist. My hams and quads were bigger and in better shape I think. From the side, I think I crushed everyone in the class. My waist was tiny, and upper body looked bigger for it. From the back, I shit the bed. I didn't open up my back a single time and it hurt me a ton. Looking at video I could see how bad this was.
Bright side, this is a posing fix. It'll be better in minutes. Would that have won me the class? Probably not.
The novice class. It would have given me the win I'm pretty sure. You can see what beat me in the one Pic. Guy was 6'4 250 and his upper body was great. He had ZERO legs. Absolutely none and he won the overall somehow. More power to him but, I didn't see it.
Open is the five man class. Novice is the four. The guy in center of the five won. The tall guy in the four won.
I'm happy and ready to get rolling.Tomorrow I'll relax and have breakfast and drive home. Then we're back to focusing. We've got work to do. We've got muscle to gain. We've got competitions to crush.
