Help with competing/photoshoot prep..?

  1. Help with competing/photoshoot prep..?


    Sup fellas-
    I'm going for the gold. In a few weeks I will post in the pics section about 8 months of dieting (close to 60 pounds of fatloss)..I've decided to do a photoshoot, and altho I may be a few weeks away from that very, very low bf%, I'm looking for some help with specifics to the days/week prior to the photos..Specifically water intake, tanning supplies vs. natural tan, etc...

    Does anybody here compete or know of a link with some help?


  2. Thanks LO!
    Anybody else have any pointers/tips?

  3. You're welcome.

  4. keep carbs very low starting about 5-6 days out then (assuming the shoot is saturday) thursday increase the carbs a bit, friday increase them a bit more ... saturday each as much junk as you can (Skip's infamous ****loading) seriously just gorge yourself with donuts pancakes whatever you're muscles will be out of gylcogen and this will fill them up

    drink 2-3 gallons of distilled water a day up until thursday, thurs drink about 1 gallon, friday just sips every now and then, same thing saturday and starting friday use dandelion root (taraxatone) a lot every few hours as a diuretic

  5. Great post...this exactly this info I've been looking for...i just cut 20lbs down to 7%-ish bodyfat and wanna capture on camera...I am especailly looking forward to the '****loading' day.

  6. Damn it! That's what I've been doing wrong. I didn't know you only did the '****load' one day before. I've been '****loading' everyday during my cutting cycle.

  7. if only that worked...I think all of America would be cut!

    I like the procedure..
    Look at all these little kids takin' care of the music biz don't their bus'ness take good care of me...

  10. it does work really well .. but you need to be severly depleted and DRY as a bone before you start .. what i did was tues and wednesday 50 grams of carbs from oatmeal in the morning thurs and fri zero carbs (until the ****load begins at 9) ... 3 gallons of water mon-wed thurs switch to distilled 3 gallons fri 1 gallon of distilled until 2pm then cut water
    keep sodium pretty high until thursday then cut it .. this is the jist there are a whole slew of other things that i could get more into if any one wants

    oh and by the way TRUST me the ****load sounds like fun but it sucks .. eating donuts, pizza, cookies, cake, etc without ANYTHING to drink is torture

    Never though about how to east all the donuts and stuff w/o a ton of water...hmmmm. I think being my first time I'm sticking with a less severe version as described in the beginning of this post and save the '****loading' for the next time I try this. One question for you is this: are there any normal supps that are taken that should be avoided the last 2 days when you start going REAL dry (multi-vitamin, creatine, NO2, glutamine, etc.)? I'm in the last week right now and want to make sure none of these will negatively impact the final cut.

    no reason not to take vitamins (just be sure you don't get TOO much potasium ... i never take glutamine and NO2 so i can't comment and i don't use creatine when i cut .. but i would avoid it personally

    granted that is a severe version but it worked REALLY well for me and i know its worked really well for many others
    good luck with whatever you choose

  14. Thanks for the input guys, it worked out good for my 1st time even though I felt so drained after and there's defintely room for improvement. It makes me appreciate and admire the work that people do for contest prep...yikes!

    Here's are the results:
    Well...just finished cutting...be kind.
