Question hey guys... I got a question for the vets out there

I am about 20 weeks away from a show. I'll be competing in the light weight division. I am about 15 pounds over what I need to be at competion. I am progressing nicely, but I feel that when it is all said and done, I will be about 5-10 pounds lighter than my cutoff weight in 20 weeks. does this matter? Should I risk going in a little light, or maintain my competition weight and sacrafice the really ripped look? I would like to hear from you all as to what you would do in a situation like this one.

if you worried about going in light start your contest prep a little later, you can adjust the cardio to how fast or slow your dropping the bf, i wouldn't want to come in light because you will get over powered by the other guys in the class

Just my .02

I appreciate your veiw. and I think I may have to do that, because the last thing I want to do is look too damn small. I am 5' 7 1/2, so, I really need to be at my best and weigh in at the exact or near my cutoff weight. no more than a pound or two short should do. I am starting to ease my routine into the concentration zone, or the area where I am adding maybe two reps to a set, and lightening up the weight maybe 10 to 20 pounds for example. Any other insight??? I need all the help I can get to not be mad a fool of out there. I do have a person guiding the way, so I am not totally alone, but the more knowledge I aquire, the better.

Yea bro i would def. come in as heavy as you can a buddy of mine just did the East Cost NPC event in NYC and came in 5th he came in ripped at 215 but the class went to 227 i think so he got over powered and even though he looked very dry and dense its just competing with the mass put him in 5th place. He said next show he will come in a lot heavier approx 225.

Other then what i said before i really don't have much for ya bro Sorry

keep a close eye on your carb intake,,,You may want to raise it a bit or cut back on cardio ,,as you get closer you may need to adjust

Concentrate with the heavier weight strict 6-12 reps per set. You start going lighter, superset etc, and you will sure as shit lose muscle bigtime. I see guys do this and screw up all the time.

Iagree, just because you're now in pre-comp training doesn't mean lighten up on the wieghts. Heavy lifting builds muscle, diet and cardio cuts you up.

10-12 reps with as much weight as you can handle will do it
