    Looks like a lot of board members are going to be doing bodybuilding and strength-based shows and competitions this year.

    Are you?
    Which show?

    :)

    Not this year.
    I am currently rebuilding a lot of muscle tissue.
    Then I will maintain the tissue for the rest of the year.

    I did want to compete but literally every one says I shouldn't.
    Training partner says I need to relax this year wife says the same hell even my gym members said they don't want me dieting haha.

    What I would like to do is get mentally comfortable at 15% body fat (via dexa) and not diet at all.
    At that level of body fat I am strong as hell and can keep the body nice and anabolic (naturally).
    I just have serious bodydismorphia (always have had this) regarding body fat.
    This will be a real challenge for me!

    Next year a full light heavy at Jr USA is my goal that means dry out and weigh 198lb.

    Con stay at 15% and get some more thickness built. You obviously still like training heavy hardcore and basic.

    Thank god I am not at 15% yet haha.
    Probably around 11% now (remember I dieted for 3 weeks).
    But over time without dieting the fat will creep on and probably top out at 15%.

    I am putting on as much size as I can as long as my BP stays low (haven't seen any readings over 120/80 so that's still good!).

    Much harder to gain size and weight when you have to be physically active all day lol.

    I will be later on now. Once my boy has a better routine of sleeping and eating. Getting much much better now though.

    Get a good 8 hours a night (broken with feeds).

    Was going to wait and do the same show as last year but I'll probably be able to do an earlier one. No idea what one though.

    Quite possibly maybe. Potentially, perhaps, seewhat happens.

    If the rebuild goes well then Nabba UK or england. Whichever the open show is.

    Strongest Man in Town (Glasgow) in June and gym comp in May.

    Nothing else planned at this stage. Want to get my feet wet this summer then take rest of the year to work my arse off to be even better 2016.

    This may change tho, I think there is another comp local to me in August so could end up going in for that too.

    I am sure rebuild will go well mate, if you are motivated like previous times and muscle memory I expect you will be fine.
