On stage and in person those guys were in good shape, pics don't always tell the story, all of them were big guys and to get to that condition and having muscle mass is very hard and they all put a lot of work into it so it's unfair to make a sweeping judgement on anyone of them. It takes a lot for a guy to build himself up, strip the excess and then get up on stage infront of thousands of people, it was a 1st timer show and they all did it.
The guys who finished above me were all in amazing shape and deserved to be ahead of me, it was also unusual for guys like that to even enter a 1st time, they usually go to novice or a class, Novice only had 3 people in, mine was packed and the standard very high. In the bottom part of the pic, the guy completely shredded didn't even make top 4. The tall lump won, I don't think he should have his conditioning was shit next to the others he was just massive.
How come these guys weren't in your picture of the 'top half contestants'
You got a participation medal, that's given to you so you don't feel too bad about yourself in case you didn't know.
You've never sparred, I saw your 'boxing' video and it's obvious you've never learned how to throw a punch or come anywhere near competing. You're not an athlete in the first place and bodybuilding training is the worst thing an athlete can do. You're only 33?
I honestly thought 37-38. Well preserved
