    How to prep for photo shoot


    I do a bit of modeling (no homo its good money) and I have a photo shoot coming up Oct 18th and I need my 6-pack in tip top shape. Right now there is a thin layer of fat I'm trying to get rid of above my abs and I've been doing high intensity interval training, running 3+ miles per day, abstaining from alcohol, not eating after 8pm, and watching my diet. The shoot starts around noon on that Saturday so I was wondering how early I should stop eating... and if there's any other way I can prep my body to have less fat. Thanks.

    T-nation has a couple of good articles on that, http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...dded_in_6_days
    http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...imate_leanness

    In my opinion, the first one (shredded in six days) is the better of the two: easier and you don't have to mess with your salt intake either.

    They ought to help you get ready.

    For quick sub-q definition enhancement, I would actually recommend LG Science's Lipo-Burn.

    For longer term true fatloss, I would go with the Avant line, but the Lipoburn works VERY well acutely.

    Strangely enough I don't have the body of a runner at all... I just have really low b/f so I have to do lots of HIIT after fasting for several hours to burn additional fat. When I run the 3 miles I only do a 12-minute mile, that way it burns fat for a long duration without getting my heart rate high enough to do more cardio than fat burning.

    Great links. I'm gonna try out the 6-day plan and let you guys know how it works out. Just ordered all the supplements. I also might put my body into "flushing mode" a day or two earlier.
