    Definitely look into the use of coconut or red palm oil. It's purely saturated fat in the form of medium chain triglycerides (6-10 carbon chains). The advantage of MCT's are how it skips a step in the GI. Long chain triglycerides like our usual nut and olive oils (12+ carbons) have to be broken down, enter the villi of the small intestine, then reassembles when they move into the bloodstream for use. MCT's skip this step and go straight to the liver for breakdown. The ketone bodies are good for immediate energy use especially on low carb dieting and stimulate a thermogenic response as well as the continued secretion of fat deposits as beta-oxidation has already been primed as the fueling route of energy expenditure. MCT's are also far less likely to go into storage since they hit the mitochondria real quick. So while in carb depleted stages consider taking 1-2tbsp coconut oil before a work out or cardio.

    Awesome info Organic, thank you so much. Like I said, I am constantly hearing good things about it but after reading what you wrote, I will go invest in a bottle!! Hope you have a great Monday

    The show is Friday, right?
    Agreed. So well do 150 Wednesday to see how it looks and judge it from there. Thursday I'm estimating 300 but its a judgement call were going to watch through the day. Show is Friday, ill have honey bananas and rice cakes on hand. Pedialite in case of emergency. Niacin, plenty of pro tan (start coating tomorrow), a jar of peanut butter, and some sweet tarts.

    I forgot how much I dislike distilled water. Sorry DW, just not my deal.

    I went to five places to find distilled, no one has it in NY NJ. Water and bread shelves are empty.

    DW, question.

    Do you drink distilled on the regular? If so, what do you do to prevent mineral loss?

    Last day of circuit training and I'm pretty tired after. I can tell I'm flushing the extracellular water out really nicely but not going flat. Vascularity continues to increase as my capacity for forming grammatically correct statements declines. I have pictures from yesterday coming up soon. The lighting in the apartment is awful but I'll try to fix it.

    Yeah idk about the whole drinking DI water thing.. I know it will definitely dehydrate you and can cause mineral deffencies, but i've never heard of drinking it pre contest / needed to do it.. just always stuck with tap water from the sink or from the fridge filter.

    good luck this week though man. post pictures after your comp

    Really? I've used it before to flush out extracellular sodium and water hanging out but it's tricky because too much and you'll start causing mineral deficiencies and make the muscle go flat. 2-3 days max and you gotta watch each day. But I finished, back to spring water but not much of it today.

    First carb meal: 1/2c quinoa (30g carbs/2.5g fat/6g protein)

    Todays macros: 150g carbs, 150g protein, 30g fats
    But that's only about 1470calories... is that too low?

    Ah you should have mentioned that. I was on my phone when I said it was in my signature so I couldnt post it. You're just in time for the finale.

    Here's a sneak peak. Shows not till 5! I'm trying to hold myself in position till then. Just resting with legs up and rice cakes with either peanut butter or honey when energy dips to not be too depleted

    THE END RESULTS:

    Not sure where I placed just yet but it wasn't top 5. I'll get my score card in a couple days to find out where I placed out of a class of 12. It was tough, you could hear the judges say they were having a hard time with everyone in the bantam. I was up there for the symmetry round for so long! Everyone has the proportion, the design, the right tapers and framework. When it came to symmetry I could run with the best of em.

    The problem was the muscularity round: here's where I lost it and there was no way around it. The guys who placed top 5 were in their 50's-60's with the most amazing muscle maturity and conditioning I could never achieve in my mid 20's. The younger guys...hell, even a guy I know in his 30's who's an INBF promoter himself, were no where near these Swiss beasts!

    On an individual note: I messed something up on Thursday/Friday. I wasn't as crisp and tight as I was a few days before. My lining just wasnt as intense as I had it. This is the most vascular I've ever achieved and I'm still hurting this morning from my skin feeling so dry. I was pretty lean although I don't know my bodyfat%. My goal is to work on dialing in to get that conditioning (as with everyone else, no problem is nothing new). Every time I do a show I get closer to that goal but it's something my young blood hasn't figured out yet. I would have done a lot better going into the lightweight! I would have placed there for sure, it was closer to my tempo of competitors.

    I had fun, it was a great showing. I have a lot to look forward to both for the future off season and next shows. I networked with a couple people about setting up a couple shows in Brooklyn for the upcoming year. I really want to see it happen, I have a great vision for it. In the mean time, gonna do a photo shoot on Tuesday (after I deflate from pizza bloat! lol). Not gonna do the NPC nest week, I just recently signed a new lease to move back to NJ and the move in date is the 15th so I'm packing up as I write this.

    THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOLLOWING THIS JOURNEY! PICTURES TO FOLLOW!

    Yeah, I learned a lot on what where my strengths and weaknesses lie for building off season. I also got a lot of great pointers and tips from the pros which I intend to incorporate into my training.

    For now I'll be taking a few days rest, cycle off ALL supplementation, and return to eating at maintenance with a balanced macros. For the next few weeks my workouts will be just a rehabilitation to get my weight back to it's regular and rebuild the mass I've lost during the process. And when the scale stops going up...my calories will.

    Organic- 1st, congrats on making it through your contest prep through the trials and tribulations of the storm. Some ppl would have given up through all of that, and because you stuck w/ it....well, that shows a lot!! 2nd- it is very refreshing for you to have learned from this experience and realize that nothing can top muscle maturity. You are still young and have plenty of time to add size if that's what you desire. YLately we have seen lot of young guy's/gals that get SO upset after not placing (as high as they would have liked) and frankly their attitudes and egos become horse sh*t!!! Thank you for not being "that guy"!! You will learn as you go and I have a strong feeling that you will ONLY improve over time as you seem to have A LOT drive and determination!!

    We will be waiting for pics.....don't forget man!!!

    Good job on the whoooooole process though! I know you worked out hard and kept at it with the diet! I'm sure you will do great on future shows!

    Maybe next year when I come back to Jersey from vacation we could train together and I could learn some from you. Where you moving to?

    Sounds like you had a good learning experience and a fun time. It takes balls to step on stage and get compared while in posing trunks haha! Grats on the new lease and hopefully it benefits your training and lifestyle.

    whats the plan now? still keeping contest shape or is it back to off season?

    Looked good man. Like everyone said it takes a lot of dedication to even go through the diet to step on stage. Not something a lot of guys can do. You learn everytime you do it, so you'll only get better and better. You gave me the fever again, maybe I'll compete in June.
    Come Follow along!!!

    I'm pretty hard on myself that I didn't place or come looking like some of em but they deserved their win and put in a lot of time I never had yet. I just keep trying. State law says you can't take pictures or video in the casino so I have to wait for the official photographer and I'll request my score card later this week.

    I had it in the back of my head to do the NPC next week and hold my shape but it would feel more like a chore than for fun. I'm looking to take some days off then slowly work my way back up to my normal strength and size but not sh*tload up on food to where I get sick. Plus this beer just tastes too damn good. Go Jets!

    Done deal. I fought with myself a lot on not doing it but it just comes to commitment. I saw a guy I competed with 2 years ago who's house is literally GONE from the storm. Foundation ruined, ripped up, and he still got on stage. No excuses...ever.

    It gave me the drive I need to really push it in the off season to make progress and hawkeye that May/June timeframe. Right now I need some days off to relax, that BeastMode switch is burnt out.
