I would just like to say its been amazing receieving all your pm's, email's and well wishes of the past few weeks, many of them I have not had time to reply to.

Everyones support for bodybuilding in this country speaks volumes, the hard work, determintion, sacrifice, and courage it takes to do this is amazing and I have so much respect for you all.

We all have our favourites and people we would like to see do well, but in the most part of it, people have been really respectful of others and what they have achieved.

Ive done what ive had to do these past 12 weeks, dieted my **** off, done my cardio 3 x a day getting up at 6am, then going to work, then getting in the gym to battle it out.

Ive encounter numerous different experiences in my prep this time round, all of which I will document at a later stage, I have realised that the body is constantly evolving, changing as the year goes by and you really have to try and adapt to it the best way possible.

As I write this, I am now carbing up.... I suppose thats why ive found the energy to write this after all these weeks on low carbs, Im starting to come alive again.

My last weeks prep has been somewhat different this time round, ive done a few things different so the next 24-48 hrs in down to the Gods, and hopefully they will be on my side :)

So I will eventually reply to all your pm's very soon. I have also been asked on numerous occasions to post my diet, I will do that in the next few days if you are interested, ive never really wanted to post my diet as there are a lot of guys on here who are incredibly knowledgable on nutrition, I dont know a thing.

Good luck to everyone competing, I hope and pray that family and friends get there safely and everyone gets there in good health.

Enjoy the show, its going to be a CRACKER!!!

Ive got so many people to thank personally, but thank you all once again.

Nice post Shaun, im sure you will be one of the highlights of the show. Your right about your body evolving, sometimes we forget that each year we get better and bigger and need to factor in those parameters.

Its going to be an amazing day and im sure you will enjoy it and put those last 12odd weeks into action.

Good luck and ill catch up with you Sunday

Enjoy your carb up!!

Hey Sean, it's good to see you posting on UKM and will be very interesting to see how you diet for a show and what experiences you had throughout.

I wish you all the best for the weekend mate.

Fivos, Luke, Paul, Thank you. cant wait to see you all up there. Yeah luke, some things suprised me how my body has changed since last year. Made me realise that nothing is quite the same each time round, thats why its so important for any aspiring bodybuilder to document their diet, its like gold the next time round.

Great post Shaun and all the best for Sunday...I feel priviledged to be part of a show with such top competitors such as yourself, Tom Blackman etc it will be a great day and best of luck to you all.

It has been a very long, extremely hard but amazing journey for me as im sure it has been for everyone else who has prepared for Sunday I take my hat off to people like Paul S, Tom and James who do this year after year I personally never realised how demanding it is but I would not change it for the world....sit back enjoy the carbs and wait for battle to commence :thumbup1:

Thanks clarkey, the journey can be as stupid as it may sound " A life changing experience" in some ways you get to know yourself a bit better, what your weakneses are, what your strengths are, and most of all, how deep are you as an individual willing to go in order to win.

Ive carb depleted for four days now, not taking in one ounce of carbs just living on protien, and training like a maniac has taken its toll, but hey, im here now and its going to be great standing on stage with great physiques.

The first British Champs I went to, I saw you win the juniors beating my mate into second, you were so polished and with class.

I have no doubt you have done what it takes, but as we all know, we can do as much as we like, if we haven't been blessed with it, then no amount of protein can help you :laugh:

But you are a great young bodybuilder gary, with loads more to give. Best of luck for sunday, im kinda glad your not doing the u90s, with your condition im expecting to see, its going to be hard work for anyone.
