PRIVETT SAYS HE'S 'ONLY 60%' FOR SEASON OPENER – BUT PICTURES TELL A DIFFERENT STORY

Trials and tribulations of a Men's Physique competitor hunting down IFBB Pro Card

MEN'S Physique athlete Marcus Privett believes he is only 60 per cent close to his best for the UK's season opener on March 23.

But one look at his recent check-in pictures suggests he will be dialled in for his pro qualifier next month.

Privett will return to the stage for the 2Bros Condition Coaches Kingdom Classic show in three weeks, which acts as a regional qualifier for those in the UK wanting to battle it out for an IFBB Pro Card later in the campaign.

Wheeler told Privett he should already be a pro

Privett – once told by the Flex Wheeler that with his shape he should already be gracing an IFBB Pro stage – normally comes in sliced to the bone, with aesthetically pleasing, flowing lines.

He said: "I'm three weeks out but only about 60 per cent [ready] for this one. I don't really feel like I'm "in" this time around. I feel like I'm still quite a while away. Even my pictures are not great and I don't feel that great at the minute, either.

"I lost a lot of size last year and I haven't had the time to put that back on yet. But I need to make a weight category this time, so it's a different way of approaching it than we have done before.

"But I need to get this done. I just don't want to put too much pressure on myself. I will do the regional, then straight to Sweden – which is a pro qualifier – and straight after there is Portugal.

"They are the plans but there are a lot of good guys competing, so we'll see what happens.

"Right now I am hitting individual body parts in training just to get some extra detail. But I need to get tighter without losing any more size."
