What do competitors do the week b4 contest? Let me tell you what I am getting at. A bunch of us will be going to a 'retreat' this weekend and we want to look good in bathing suits. BBer's I think cut carb until the day b4, and then load up? Is that correct? I want to get the pumped, non-bloated look. Exercise wise I went Monday, and plan to go Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
