I have competed 11 times before. Placing in top 3 in my class 10 times, with 3 first places= 2002 INBF WI state, 2002 INBF Midwest, 2000 Northeastern.
These shows were in open class before I was in the chair. My 2 shows in April will put me at 13 shows.
The only slowing I have noticed is just do to the aging proses. (every year over 30, the body burns 5 less cals per day)
