If it's of any comfort to you, you can grab the "fat" and feel that it is not dense at all, and doesn't have much texture to it, and just remind yourself that what you're feeling is water, not fat.
    To add too what classic said if you can pinch it and it feels like little beads -that is what fat feels like.

    But honestly bean you look great man. You'll be lean enough.

    Drying out and carbing up make a huge difference. Your skin week be so tight.
    I noticed a night and day difference
    In my hams and quads


    Don't stress, stress causes inflammation and that causes water retention.

    Are you using an ai?
    Also high estrogen will cause water retention.

    Well I guess all you can do now is work on that stress..
    Maybe get your estrogen checked again?

    I'll be honest Idk any thing about ai's and dosing besides for erase.

    You just have to have faith in your coach and do everything he says to a T.


    Trust me the further into a prep you get the more f.cked up your mind gets. You'll be thinking you're not lean enough and panicking when in reality you'll be fine.

    Yup, just wait for his instruction. There's more than one way to drop water.

    Today I was short on time so I took a page from breezys wo and did a regular arm workout but I did 10 sec rests on everything. Holy mother of Mary. All I had was some cit Mal mixed in with my CF Focus XT and man I had to cut it one exercise short because I could barely bend my arms. Fun but it drained me. Followed that up with 15 mins of HIIT 30 sec sprints 60-75 sec rests. Drenched in sweat and my appetite is raging after that session.

    3 weeks out tomorrow.

    No posing this week coach is out of town. Time to hunker down even more.

    Just think of the things you have learned about your body through this process. For a long time i told myself i would never have sixpack abs because (i like pizza or i want to enjoy food or.......) but you are an inspiration man. I am slowly changing my mindset and who knows. Three wks out and you are on point brother!

    Yeah, ridiculous pump with that approach lol. Maintaining the 10 seconds rest is brutal, but I thought it was fun as well. My bicep DOMS is at a level that I haven't experienced in long time.


    You're almost there brother. Stay focused and finish strong...I'm sure you will.

    Just dropping in for a bit of an update. Things are still on track (I think lol). Been extremely busy, wife's sister went into labor lady night so no am weights or wo for that matter, as long as I get off work on time I'm going to run to the gym and hit up chest shoulders and HIIT! Tomorrow will be LISS in the am fasted.

    I'm officially 17 days out

    Same mind games going on but I'm trying to ignore them. I'm sick of fish lol but I can eat anything for a short period of time. Noticed a slight change as of the last few days, have a very clean refeed last night nothing crazy but I needed the mental break so coach said do and we will see what u look like on Sunday (team posing).

    Ill be checking in over the next few days, I really appreciate all your support and hopefully I won't let anybody down!

    I have made the mistake of taking Benadryl the night before a morning lift...terrible idea. I hate sedatives in general. They're almost never worth it.

    Bean, melatonin won't give you bad dreams, I've never heard of that before..

    The last time I took melatonin before bed I had a dream that I was a crack dealer and my clients turned into zombies and started chasing me, but hey whatever you say. But yes, melatonin is a great option that won't make you feel horrible the next morning.

    Simply google: Melatonin Dreams.

    Not saying they are nightmares. I have the weirdest, most trippy dreams on the entire planet. I wake up every morning thinking wtf just happened? It gives you vivid dreams because it when you go to sleep, your body produces seratonin. But when it's time to wake up, melatonin produces more seratonin, which is where the wild dreams come to play. Sometimes it is solid sleep, and others, melatonin will keep you half asleep and awake at the same time because you are tired but it also is signalling to wake you up. Ever wake up, stay in bed, go back to sleep, wake up, sleep, wake up? In and out is when you'll have multiple dreams, and I've had this with Melatonin for 2 semesters! Look, it's 2:42 am and I'm still awake cuz of my stat homework o.0! Time to take some melatonin and have wild dreams.

    This is actually around the range of 1/3 or up to 1/2 of my dreams already. The gorier and odder the better. Only diff would be me chasing the zombies down and hacking them to pieces...

    I love crazy dreams

    It is also hit or miss. I have tried several times taking it and it has not helped me once. Finaflex G8 is where it's at.
