Default Kristen - Back from the Dead!

Whew. It's been a while. Some of you may remember me, many of you probably have no idea who I am! But in any case! Time to start up another journal [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Competing in two shows this fall - September 24, and October 22...my first ones! Couldn't be more excited, and I'm so ready to get my game face on cranking out the cardio, and following my diet to a T. Training with one of my good friends from the gym, who has competed in lots of shows in the past few years.

For the past month, I have been focusing on bulking up a little bit - nothing too too crazy, but I've had some great results adding 300-400 calories per day. And lifting heavier than I ever have before, which has been AWESOME. Dieting starts the 20th!

Current Split:
M: Chest + Tris; 20-30 min cardio
T: Quads, Calves + Abs; 20-30 min cardio
W: Cardio day; 45 min
Th: Back + Bis; 20-30 min cardio
F: Shoulders + Hamstrings; 20-30 min cardio
Weekends OFF

Diet is clean; around 1800 calories/day. Lots of lean protein (chicken, fish, lean read meat, egg whites, etc etc), good carbs (sweet potatoes, lots of oats; green veggies, etc), good fats (flax oil, natty pb, an egg yolk here and there).

Stats as of today:
Height: 5'3 (nope, no more growing for me!)
Weight: 140 [img]/forum/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] solid solid solid....
BF: (I'll know next week)

Pictures will be coming every 2 weeks!

Are you competing in bodybuilding or figure?

Also, be sure to separate cardio from weight training by about 6 hours. This will give you a harder, tighter appearence during contest prep.

Thanks much for the tip...that will definitely be the case. My training partner tends to go for A LOT of cardio - and I'm kind of freaked out about losing a ton of muscle. He prepared of my friends for a competition that took place about a month ago, and she could have been much much harder and fuller (but getting lean was more of an issue for her.). How much cardio is really enough?
