    3 days out


    Here are my pics 3 days out. Flattened out this week as you would expect. Today was the last training day with cardio. Im resting tomorrow and friday hoping my legs will come out more. All the cardio seems to blur all my leg definition for sure. Im going to start carbing up Friday mid mourning. Thats all for now.

    Maybe I will see some of you fellas down in INDY!!!

    omg i know i am stoked to carb up!!! Im gonna start eating carbs every 2 hours starting at noon tomorrow, sweet potatoes, raisins, and bananas. Bright and early saturday mourning I will eat some more bananas, raisins, sweet taters....two hours out from prejuding I am gonna eat some chocolate covered almonds, reeses cups, twinkies, and some other tastey treats I bought So I am doing a very conservative sh!t load in a sense. Also going to take a small glass of grape juice with added salt in it as glen said it rips the veins out.

    WTF is up with the candy! Thats not a good choice! Candy has sodium and you will retain even more water! be a good boy till the night show is over!

    read glens little tid-bit about sh!tloading. I am water restricted so the sodium will do nothing more than make me more vascular. (I hope!)

    I would also hold off on the candy bud, maybe just 1 thing before the stage, but the grape juice alone will be fine. Don't take a chance on it bro. I have tried it before and it can hurt you.

    bro let me ask you, do you have your meals cooked already? If you have enough chicken I would stick to that bud, you want no sodium whatsoever in your diet at this point, nun, zilch nothing. I am not trying to get you all worked up man you have came this far and are ready, but sodium the day before a show is a no-no. Everything else is ok, you could up the Carbs if you want and just do the chicken. The protein will just keep you full, All you should be eating tomm is carbs carbs carbs. You will feel bloated but trust me when you wake up saturday you will be jacked and shredded. The reason I have commented on the sweet potatoes is I have seen them **** some people up. White potatoes work best.

    No sodium get rid of tuna man.

    the tuna is low sodium tuna and is 35 mg for 2 ounces. The lowest sodium containing chicken that I could find in this town was 75 mg sodium for 3 ounces (uncooked) chicken.....so I thought the tuna was a better way to go......it tastes horrid...I dont mind regular tuna at all....this low sodium stuff is like eating cotton and dirt

    All fresh whole chicken breasts I every see at the store have much more sodium than this low sodium canned tuna. Am I wrong here?

    They sell low sodium tuna, and I was too bored from tuna, I just boiled chichen breasts in distilled water. That way you have no extra sodium man. I did a 4 day carb up, while cutting gradually water(22 cups, 11, 6, 0, 0) I was eating 7 bananas a day, yams, and 21 rice cakes with 2 chicken breasts. Water was limited, so the carb up, sodium depletion, nd dehydration made muscles ripped and very nice. I had 1/2 pack of reese's pieces before pre-judging, and it really helped bring out vascularity. It's your diet, and go with what you feel right. Just go very slow on the chocolate as you cant flush it down with water!!:bb: Good luck!

    looking great buddy.

    I know you have worked VERY hard. I am proud of you.
    I am not going to get into the sodium or no sodium debate. Stick with what your game plan was from the beginning.

    It was logically thought out so don't go changing things now at the last minute while you are not thinking correctly from low carbs.

    I know pros who do it low/no sodium and some who do the opposite. It depends upon your water manipulation, sodium manipulation etc.
    Like I say stick to what your plan was

    Go get em and have FUN

    For the chicken without sodium try a butcher shop, I know its kind of late now but for future reference. They generally don't add any juice. Good luck man, I'm at Purdue and was gonna come to the show, but I have to work. Looking good though, go kick some a$$.

    If you are at Purdue, why don't you just give him some chicken? Sorry I couldn't help it.

    Im back!! What an experience! It was so much fun and I definately learned a lot. I did not place top five which was no real surprise...I was the youngest there and the tallest....YAY:bruce1: ahaha

    I thought I had a shot at placing 4th or 5th but the judges thought otherwise. There was 9 in my class i do believe. I weighed in at 193.6 pounds the mourning of the show. I was somewhat frustrated as prejudging was going to start at 11am, but it was well after noon, closer to 1 by the time we got started....grrrrrrrrrrrr

    The pics on the digital camera came out terrible, but I got vid of the prejudging and my night routine. Also had my mom take a bunch of snaps with a disposable camera for the night show as the digi cam was being ultra g@y. Thanks for tlal the support and I will tell you this. It has lite a fire under my ass like something fierce. On the ride back I already got my clean bulk all planned for the summer

    Congrats gou. Not placing is still better in my book than not being there at all. You had the balls and the body to be there in the first place, that's what counts. Next time you'll be in the top 5

    Yes the same thing I told Apower is the same thing I will tell you now losers see loosing as failing winners see loosing as success because it is the fact that you tried that makes you a winner. It's a saying that has always helped me come back and train even harder after a loss. My coach says you learn alot more from your losses than your wins. You can only get better from her.
