    Just keep dieting man. You might lose a bit of muscle but you are trading some size for ultimate leaness.

    You can't EVER been too lean.

    And, if you are worried about losing more muscle (no offence bud) but you must not have as much as you think to begin with. Never sacrifice size for being leaner.

    I have heard this a lot now and in most all the show results I have seen the most conditioned individuals prevail.

    well 1 week apart is TOUGH as hell .. you won't be ON for both of them

    4 weeks apart .. you need to just hop right back on your diet after pigging out saturday night

    adjust as necessary according to the mirror but you're probably looking at more maintaince cals unless you were off at the first show
