Unofficial Shape Up Competition - THE VOTE!
On 11th May, we guys who missed the start of the official shape up competition, joined the unofficial shape up competition. This was: RULES 1.
The start date is Monday 11th May with the competition running for 11 weeks to take us up to Monday 27th July. 2.
Each competitor must start their own thread within the Progress journals forum and call their thread "my unofficial shape up" and then post their 'Before' photos up between now and Sunday 10th May stating goals for the forthcoming 12 weeks (cutting/bulking) and whether they intend to use anything that may be considered 'assistance' (e.g. AAS, designer steroids, prohormones, ECA, Clen, etc). The created thread is also to be used as a progress journal. I will use this thread as there is no need for a general discussion thread i think.
Baseline stats (weight, BF%, girth measurements, etc) can be included if desired but the judging will be based on the visible progress in the photos, so a decent comparison between ‘Before’ and ‘After’ would be advisable.
4. At the close of the competition, 'After' photos must be posted up on the forum by Sunday 2nd August These photos will then be compiled into a thread, giving a 'Before' and 'After' comparison.
5. MuscleTalk members will then be asked to assess the changes competitors have been able to achieve in their physiques over the period of the competition and vote for the member who they feel has made most progress over the time period.
6. Because there will only be a small few of us if you enter this then you must post in all the contestants threads to give motivation and encouragement to the other participants.
Contenders and pretenders to the title!

Unfortunately, since June, I seem to have been the only person still posting and seemingly, still lifting but just to see it through, I decided to take closing pictures and see it through. Bit disappointing that the person who started the competition has vanished and not closed it but he might have special circumstances, so I hope he is okay :-)
At the start of competition was my start in lifting altogether so I started from nothing and have been working for twelve weeks. My opening weight was 10st, my closing weight is 11st3lbs.

Would be a bit disappointing to just win by being the only entrant and I feel a bit silly making this thread but hey, I entered it seriously so I'm going to finish it seriously.
Even though it's just me, any comments would be appreciated.
