Welcome! You are going to love working with Erik and being here at LBF! We are definitely a very friendly bunch, but the support caring and knowledge of the people here is what makes it so special. Looking forward to getting to know you. Consider starting a journal so that we can all follow your progress.

Contest is in August, August 29. I am starting really early as I am not sure how my body will react to all the changes, ya know. I rather be safe then sorry.

I think that is a wise approach especially for a first time. My first competition was last year and I did not leave enough time and had to diet and cardio so hard that I ended up losing muscle mass in the process

Yes sir, my biggest fear is not having enough time to prep. I'd rather have to tough it out for a couple of weeks extra ya know? I dunno, I am really excited and at the same time, scared shitless about this...should make for a good time. Dontcha think! lol

So I am new here...Hi all. :) I just competed in my first figure show and I have been bitten by the bug now. I did alright, but I have so much to improve on. I guess what my question is, where do I start now. I would like to do the heart of dixie show on August 8th. The things I feel I need to work on the most are my shoulders, and my stomach. I have come so far, but I still cannot get that last bit of fat off of my belly. You know so that you can see all the hard work I put into my abs? :) It's very frustrating. My diet was pristine in training for this last show, so I just don't know what else I can do. Any suggestions? Also, I was a lot smaller than the other girls. I need to build muslce! Big muscles! :) any help is beyond greatly appreciated!

Hi and welcome.

This will probably get more attention in either the training, nutrition, or competitor's forum.

Perhaps cut and paste it over in one of those forums.

I'll respond over 'there'.

Thank you Erik. I will do that. I have journals of my workouts and eating. But they were all for contest prep. So, I don't really know where to start now.

Also, being new to this forum business...what should I do to get the most out of this site? I see alot of people have journals.
