    Hi guys!

    This was my first season as a competitive natural amateur bodybuilder in the open weight class and I would love to hear all your feedback about my physique/performance and what I can improve on for the next season! Thanks already!

     

    !!! I am NR. 55 on the pictures – black trunks – least shredded legs

    Edit: somehow I can’t upload more pictures here – I will upload them on my profile, so you can see them there! THANKS!!

     

    Last saturday was my second BB-show ever (first was a week before).

    In a line-up of 9 Athletes, I placed 5th. I weighed about 86-87 kg on stage at a height of 181 cm. I am currently 23 years old.

    For those 2 show this year, I trained PPL – mostly 2 days on – 1 day off – repeat.

    According to the feedback from the judges, I need to bring up my upper body, because it would be unproportionate to the size of my legs. You guys and the judges already told me to lose even more body-fat, that’s noted! and I see it myself too!

    My initial plan after the competition was to train full-body every second day for a while, before I go back to a split. But as the judges told me to focus less on my legs and more on my upper body, I’m not sure about the full-body-training anymore. What about Push-Pull-Legs-Push (with a bit of quads)-Pull (bit of Hams)-and repeat? Of course there would be off-days in between!

    Or would you start with full-body but with more focus on upper-body in this setup? Or what are your suggestions and thoughts?

    And what other feedback can you give according to the pictures?

     

    Would you suggest taking off 1 whole year to pack on tissue or would you recommend stepping on stage as fast as possible because this was only my first season?

    For me: I want to step on stage as fast as it is possible, but I also know that to improve my physique and to eventually get the pro card, I will have to improve a lot…

     

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! I really appreciate every feedback, comment or tip!! I want to go ALL IN and get my NATURAL PRO CARD next time I step on stage!!!!!!!! This goal is set in stone for me!!!!

    Hi Joe!

     

    Thank you very much for your kind voice reply!! I really appreciate it!!

    Currently I’m taking a week off from the gym post-show to get all other things organized and let my body recover a bit.

    I plan on returning to the gym next monday. What do you think about the following:

     

    I thought about starting off with a split 2 days training – 1 day off – repeat.

    The split would look like that:

    Pull 1 – Push 1 – Off – Legs – Pull 2 – Off – Push 2 – Push 1 – Off – Pull 1 – Legs – Off – Pull 2 – Pull 1 – Off – Repeat.

    I thought with such a setup, I could slowly re-introduce myself to the gym and have enough recovery days. After some time of getting back to the gym, I thought about changing the split to:

    Pull 1 – Push 1 – Legs – Off – Pull 2 – Push 2 – Off – Pull 1 – Push 1 – Legs – Off – Repeat

    In that fashion I have less off-days and can hit my upper body a bit more frequently. If fatigue would still be high, I would get back to the split I explained before.

    That would be my ideas. In that fashion I would hit my upper body more often than my legs – but I would love to see what you and Terrence planned to and then adjust my split to yours.

    What do you think about that?
