Advice

So, I've been lifting for a few years now (more consistently for the last two) and have decided that I want to compete this time next year more than likely in the UKBFF Welsh in the Classic class. (little challenge for myself for when I turn 30)
 
I have a bit of a predicament though. For my height I can be a maximum of 96kg and am currently around 110kg. I know it's a year away so have time to drop the fat but I want to know if it's worth trying to add some quality mass first. My head is telling me to cut first though to see what sort of shape I'm in.
 
Thoughts?

My advice is to cut first. That way you will know where your weak points are. Where do you train? Go to a proper spit and sawdust gym, have a look round and talk to the lads there. Honestly, if you stay natural your three years away. I first started training at a council gym and thought I was doing alright. I then went to a hard-core gym and realised I was playing at it. With the help from the lads down there a couple of years later I was doing fine. Keep going and you'll get there. All the best.

Thanks for the reply. I train in a privately owned gym (competitive bodybuilder), where quite a few of the men and women compete, two have just qualified for the British Finals, so plenty of people to get some extra advice from 👍

Thanks

Hi mate. You may consider competing in the PCA classic class. No height/weight restrictions. Adding to that. I'd advise to get in the best shape possible given the time between now and your competition date, and see what category you fit in .
