I was wondering if some of you guys could help me out. I know there was a thread about an upcoming article on contest prep both for the competitive and noncompetitive bodybuilder. I am a noncompetitive bb who is going to Florida in two weeks. I am probably a lot like most of you guys…I have a substantial amount of muscle (I weigh 205 lbs., I am 6’1), but also have a little more fat than I would like (I have about 11% now)
What I was wondering, was how to lose that extra water, and peak for the week while I’m in Florida. Now remember, this is diff. than contest prep, because I just need to look mildly good for 5 days as opposed to extremely shredded for one.
Anyway, I was hoping for some “drug free” tips. (For addtional info…I am currently on fina and will finish up my cycle then day before I leave. I don’t want to buy any drugs for the cutting. My ideas were to go off the creatine about four or five days before we leave. I would also up my sodium the week before we leave, and then not drop it down until I arrive or the day before. (remember, I’m going for a five day peak) Also, I have taraxatone that I will be taking throughout my trip (five days), just to keep the water retention low.
If any of this looks wrong, please let me know. I have never tried this before, and know that trying to semi-peak for five days is maybe a little tougher to time than super-peaking for one.
