I really like that this show has a Novice 1 class where it has to be your first time. The contest in Alabama did not and Matt was thrown in with at least one that was an "old hat" at competing.

Do they require you to be natural for a certain amount of time? I looked at the rules and it didn't state. The NGA requires 7 yrs....of course I have no ideal how they actually enforce that length of time. I guess it comes down to honesty.

Best of luck Ripper!

Awesome, man. Best of luck. I know you can kick it in the bum. The diet and workout appear solid.

I learned this lesson long ago. Your wife always needs to be on board. She doesn't always have to agree with you, and you don't always have to be right, but I've found (in my case anyway) that wives generally like to be included and want to be supportive. Communication is the key. If the communication works, then the rest will follow. It all goes back to the Garden of Eden. The Bible says that the Man and Woman were "naked and unashamed." That kind of transparancy is crucial in a marriage. Now take that momentum and GO!!

Sounds exactly like me and my wife. Maybe your contest prep will stimulate some activity.

The Novice 1 Class is why I chose this show Rick I really liked this idea. As for being "Natural " for a certain amount of time, I will need to dig deeper. I would think they would just do a urine test, cheaper, any thing else would take to long I think.

Thanks every one, this is exactly the support I'm going to need.
