    It hurts me a lot - you are just being nice. lol

    Seriously, because I get tight from the front and then still have 10 more pounds to go before I get tight from the back, I lose a lot of size and fullness in my back during those last 10 pounds. Believe it or not, my back is actually improved over the last few years.

      Finally got a chance to look through all of those photos. DAMN was that a tight class.

      That's the kind of line-up where your decision bounces back n' forth based on each mandatory, I'd think. Normally, it's pretty clear from the get go after you've been watching this stuff for a couple decades, but when the conditioning varies, balance varies, front to back ranking varies, etc., it's like apples, oranges, bananas and peaches...

      So, Ken - best showing yet for you, would you say?...

        I did not mean to hurt you! ;-) I meant that in comparison to a couple of the guys on stage your back width (which I think is more of a genetic shoulder girdle width thing) was the only "weaker" comparison. I thought you actually had really good back thickness and detail. Everything else was spot on and hangin' right in there.
        I know what you mean though, because I am also in the same exact boat. I can have a nice full, wide, back until the last 3 weeks or so and when I really try to get my lower back to come in, my lats and thickness just disappear...it is frustrating. Anyway, don't ban me, I still thought you looked freaking awesome!

            Not at all. I appreciate your candor and you are right, my back does hurt me. I didnt mean my feelings were hurt. Lol

            I need more width in back and delts. ... As always. Still improving but always my weaknesses.

              I do think so. I have a shot here or there that might be better from past shows but my overall condition and overall package was probably the best ever for this show.

              And yet I still think I can improve. That is the fun part.

                  Colorado has a very strong presence at National shows. This weekend 4 pro cards were already handed out at the Master's Nationals from Colorado out of something like 20 Colorado competitors.

                  Both Ricky Sosias and Donny Bivens (1st and 2nd place in the above line up) are headed to USAs next week and the guy who took 3rd (Tony DiTirro) could compete at that level because he is usually a middleweight and that is a lot of size for a middleweight. He likely is only passing on the show because he is a pilot that flies 4-5 weeks at a time and had to go out just a few days ago for 5 weeks.

                  I am certainly in good company. This pic of the board when you walk into Armbrust Pro Gym says it all.
