    The first question all depends on your diet and what % you started your prep at.

    Most will stop cardio one week prior while some will go until the Wednesday before when all workouts end.

    Carb loading begins 2-3 days prior depending on how you look.

    I'm currently 6 days out from a NPC Men's Physique comp and my cardio will end tomorrow and carb up will begin 3 days out and then will assess one day out to see how I look. Water will also be cut at 4 pm the day before.

    You may want to google search my thread "Stop screwing up your contest prep" and it will have everything covered (pretty much) regarding contest prep.

    It would be at MD forums in contest prep section (other forums too, but not as many Q&A) ....150 pages
