    About Me

    Coming off a Contest Prep where I had a 6 month prep for the West Virginia Mid Atlantic Grand Prix. Going from 190 and tried to make Light Weight Cutoff at 154 and just fell short last minute. Weighed in 153.8 on my scale and weighed in at 156.6 on their Scale. Was also placed in a higher Class B Classic Physique Class as well.

    Prep Took a huge toll on me mentally, physically, and also hormonally. I am hoping this can help bring back libido & strength. I am going to be giving this a run as I start my reverse out of contest prep and see how it treats me. Thank you to the CEL team for allowing me to run this log!

    I hope it really helps with Libido like most claim which is non-existant post show.
    Next week I will get back into a routine, this week was to continue peak week training just to get a pump and get rocking and rolling with glycogen out of there.

    1 Week Post Show Pictures:







    Looking at these. I look much fuller then I was the day of my show.
    Shows that I should of just ate into welter even if I was outsized and screw trying to hit LW as my body was fighting me to drop the last few pounds. Probably did more harm then good with how flat I woke up day of my show and the last week.

    Lesson learned.

    Cel M-Test Day 3
    Nothing to note as of yet...... Hoping to see a change in libido after contest prep and some lifts start to go up. That really won't come until my hormones and body are normal after a very long dieting phase and contest prep. So I can't assume the product will work miracles from someone who just dieted for half a year.

    No point in cutting water. Cutting water is a huge myth and makes you look worse.
    Water is needed to move the nutrients to your cells and help you fill out. Cutting water can make you look very flat and cause you not to be able to metabolise or push the sodium, carbs etc to your body and fill out.

    https://www.biolayne.com/articles/co...a-proper-peak/



    Cliff wilson says it real good here:

    One of the most common practices in a peak week is the time honored tradition of cutting water. I can’t begin to describe the looks that my clients get at shows when they walk in drinking their gallon-jugs of water. People think they have lost their minds. It is understandable why people think this though.

    Common sense tells us that if you don’t drink water you can’t hold water. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite work like that. You must continue to drink water or else your carb up will be essentially pointless. As I said earlier, carbs draw water to them wherever they go and this is also true of carbs within the muscle. In the absence of water carbs will be preferably stored as fat rather than glycogen. This is because glycogen can ONLY be stored in a hydrated state. (2)

    When carbs get stored within the muscle they store 2.7 grams of water for each gram of glycogen. This means that when you carb up and your muscles become full and round, water accounts for about 75% of that size. So if you stop drinking water you can kiss those nice, full muscles goodbye and say hello to flat, small, sagging muscles. So cutting water will not only leave you smaller but also not nearly as lean. If you muscles are full they will push out against your against your skin making it tighter.

    Even when I explain to people the importance of water to the peaking process, they still have a fear that drinking too much will cause water retention under the skin. The culprit for holding water under the skin is actually carbs, not water. Your muscle tissue is a lot like a bathtub with the drain open. No matter how much water you let flow into that tub it will just empty through the drain. The water in that tub needs something to stop it from emptying through the drain.

    The same thing happens when you drink water. Anything you drink will just be urinated out unless something stops it from leaving the body. Now let’s say I start throwing sponges into the tub. The sponges will start soaking up the water and prevent some of it from emptying out. This is very similar to what carbs do within the body. They soak up water wherever they go. When you eat carbs and drink water you body will always fill your muscle tissue first.

    The issues with water retention arise when you throw too many sponges into the tub. If this happens some of the sponges and water will start spilling over onto the floor. The same happens if you eat too many carbs, they will start to spill over into the out tissues, drawing water with them. This is why it is so important to eat precisely the correct amount of carbs for your carb up. The water will never find its way to the outer tissues if you do not eat too many carbs much the same way the water would not have spilled onto the floor had I not thrown so many sponges into the tub.

    Is it just trial and error to find the balance between carbs and water?

    Correct
    Depending on how you carb up during your prep, this should be a good indication on how many carbs you need to fill out on the day of your show. Keeping the water in helps to fill your system out. Cutting water does the opposite.
    I was doing refeeds starting at 300g, and worked upward to 500-600g and we monitoned how i looked the day after and the day of the refeed. If it looked like i spilled (got watery) then we knew it was too much

    In my situation where I tried to gamble and make LW Cutoff i had to restrict myself pretty hard, and then had to try and play catchup. So it goes to show how the situation can alter based off what you are doing, going through, and how you are apporaching peak week.

    Since I was so damn depleted the day before after weigh-ins and the morning of I had to really hit some heavy meals loaded with sodium and fats (Egg/Bacon/Cheese/Ham Sandwiches)

    You can see from 1 week out to the morning of my show how i lost a lot of definition from depleting myself Friday trying to make LW's since i was so damn close. I made it on my sclae and my buddy's scale, but the scale there was 2 pounds heavy. there was over a dozen competitors who missed cutoffs on classes due to a heavy scale.
