    If you're already contest lean, then you should be hard. If you're not, try eating a few more carbohydrates (i.e. carbohydrate cycling), to give your muscles that hard, full look. the other way is to train for more of a pump (i.e. higher reps, at a weight that you can do those reps for). When you dehydrate pre-competition (as most bodybuilders do), you will also harden up.

    You have a few weeks. Stop stressing. If you're doing things right, then you'll be fine come the day. Do not underestimate the drastic changes that the week pre-competition can do when doing the carbohydrate/sodium/water manipulation (please note, that these changes do not stay like that, since all you're doing is getting rid of the water, but it makes a huge difference on the day you want it thus).
