ok this is my first post here. i read a lot and i am a licenced nutritionlist and i have a staff member who is 18 now. last year when he was 17 he did his first bodybuiding comp. I didnt know him then. Since he has come to work for me we have discussed his diet from his first competition. He told me his high school weightlifting caoch helped him. So i asked himwhat he did. He told me the coach had him drinking 2-2.5 gals of water per day , 2 hrs of cardio as well in the beginning. This was in janunary the contest was june. the kid walked 1/2 to the gym and same time home and he had the kid do 1/2 of posing every day. also he cut the carbs in the diet as well. as time developed he increased the cardio to 3 -3.5 hrs a day and increased the posing to 1 hr per day. now the kid is 5 ft 4 tall and when he statrted he was 152 j first week of jan and was 132 at comp weight in june. now here is the issue. he kept telling me he would get tired after eating meals with carbs. i sent him to his regualr dr with the sugestion that he gets a gluecose tolerance test. his numbers were 87 at start 92 then downto 53 . the test was 2 hrs long. my concern is that since this coach didnt tell him to take any thing the volume of water has created some imbalance in his system combined with the excessive cardio and diet may have caused inslin issues.
does anybody have any thoughts on this?
