Default 2014 Transformation Contest



The 2014 Muscle and Brawn Transformation Contest

This year there are no bulk or cut categories.

Muscle and Brawn is looking for the most dramatic body transformation in a 16 week period.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
How It Works
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

* You can enter anytime between NOW and May 25th, 2014
* You have up to 16 weeks to complete your transformation
* Take 3 starting photos of yourself, and include the current day's newspaper. The 3 photos are: side, front and back relaxed, all holding the newspaper with the date visible
* Start a transformation log that specifically contains the words "2014 Transformation log" in it, and include your 3 photos
* Log must be started NO LATER than 24 hours after the photos were taken.
* YOU'RE IN!
* Your transformation period of 16 weeks starts from the date you start your transformation log
* At the end of the 16 week period place your after photos in your log - you have a 72 hour grace period...no exceptions!

The winners will be announced no later than October 1st, 2014!

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Requirements
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

1. You must submit the required after photos within 3 days of the end of your 16 week transformation period.
2. You must be over the age of 18.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Transformation Logs
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Transformation logs must be started here:

Training Logs Forum

Transformation logs do NOT have to detailed.

At minimum all they need is the required starting and ending pictures.

This will allow those of you who run other logs (including fullbody challenge) to keep those logs going.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Taking Photos
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Before you can get started in the Transformation Contest MAB requires that you take three before photos. MAB will be screening these photos to ensure they meet the requirements listed below.

Photo Requirements:

1. Photos must be high resolution and clear. Minimum resolution of 640x480.
2. Photos must include a newspaper with the date clearly visible.
3. Photos must reveal your physique head to toe.

Photos that are dark, blurry or low resolution cannot be accepted and we will ask you to take these photos again before you can enter the contest.

Required Before and After Photos:

The following photos are required to participate in the Transformation Contest:

1. Front photo
2. Back photo
3. Side photo

Required Photo Examples:

The following 3 photos are good examples of how to take your before and after pictures. Note that the date on the paper is clearly readable in the full size photos.

I have a complete new set of bumper plates, but I can only ship them in the USA. So I am considering a cash alternative for foreign winners.

Still considering the prizes.

He is doing reverse transformation. His diet is going to be at least 3ooo calories of pure awesome bacon for breakfast, all you can eat Chinese buffet for lunch, 1500 calories of ice cream for dinner, and 1 diet coke/pepsi...
