    Others might chime in on this, but starting PCT 2 weeks before your competition sounds like a bad idea.

    As far as carbs, I think it depends on how you react. I can get fairly shredded at 100-150g carbs per day, but I drop them down to about 40-50/day at about 1.5 months out with one carb up each week (150-200g). I take the extra calories out of my fat/protein so I'm still in a deficit.

    I don't know much about diuretics. My opinion is that if you're in shape (not sure how lean you're trying to get since it's physique not BB) you can do fine with some sodium/water manipulation with a natural diuretic like dandelion root. I've used Xpel with decent results.

    Do however much cardio you need to get into the shape you want. Those last few pounds will be a result of dialing your diet and finding just the right amount of cardio. Those last few days before the show are where everything can go wrong, so don't change anything if you're looking good!

    Just my 2 but I hope it helps a little. Good luck, man!

    I have read that dropping test will drop more all the water. What would you recommend for cycle- longer or drop now. What are your thoughts behind pct two weeks out??

    I don't have enough knowledge about anabolics to give you a good answer. When I competed last I dropped the test 2 weeks out and started PCT the week after the show. I was pretty dry, but I know I could've been drier.

    I'm hoping someone with a little bit more experience can chime in and help you out.

    I'd drop test two weeks out and keep running winny until the show

    I'm no BBer. But it seems you could drop the prop 10 days out and up the winny a bit to compensate. PCT after. Someone with more experience feel free to correct me here.

    Subbed in...

    What show are you doing and where is it located?

    I competed in 2 men's physique shows so far this yr in NYC and NJ. I weighed in at 170lb @ 4% bf for both and I was one of the smallest here. 8th place finish in the second show. I'm 13 weeks out from my next show.

    Good luck!!!

    You don't want to be in pct at the show. Period. No natural test, high estrogen and cortisol and a caloric deficit is a recipe for disaster. If you don't have enough other compounds like tren, winny etc drop your test down to TRT levels and dose an AI like letrozole and aromasin to reduce the small amount of bloat and keep cortisol and estrogen at bay. I've seen guys run TRT through comps and they came in pretty damn dry.

    You should be fine. Just stay on the winny with the low dose AI and immediately after the show start pct as planned
